    My gun was stolen today.

    Well, technically my purse was stolen and the thieves got a surprise when they went through it. My Sig P238. I'm without identity, without money, without a side window, and without my gun. Feeling pretty crappy.

    I did everything right except trust that people wouldn't break into my vehicle in broad daylight with many people around. Lesson learned. This couple is very good at their chosen profession. They might have made a go at it in law-abiding society.

    There were several good samaritans- one complete stranger even offered a hug. Too bad we can't tell those complete strangers from the ones who want to hurt us.

    Advice? I filed a police report. I want my gun back. Be careful out there everybody. Thanks for the shoulders.

    Sorry that it happened. It is one of the reasons we recommend on body carry rather than off body carry. I hope you get your gun back and that it works out for you.....
    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......

    This is either a good argument for vehicle gun safes or tinted windows that can't be looked into.
    That sucks.

    Sorry to hear that. Off body carry is never a good idea. Purses are thief magnets.

    You bet! I'm guilty of doing the same thing at times ( No purse. Just dumb bunny. ). No more! Good luck in the future.

    Sorry for your bad-luck. Glad that YOU're okay! Without getting too specific, may I ask if you're in a metro, suburban or rural area of The Bluegrass? Was your purse visible from outside the car? Is it a high-end (late model, expensive) vehicle? Were other nearby vehicles broken into? I'm just trying to guess why your particular vehicle was targeted.

    Sorry about your misfortune. I'm sure people will jump on you for leaving your purse in the vehicle with gun it but that's not important. You weren't hurt physically and property can be replaced. You now have to make the decision as how you are going to modify your carry process and security arrangements. Obviously off body carry is not a ideal situation but sometimes cant be avoided. I don't know if a car safe would have helped or not, but it at least can slow down the BG's to some degree. Professional break in artists are very good and quick about it. Chances of ever seeing your pistol again are slim at best. Follow all the advice out there on ID theft and get ready for a long period of frustration and paper work. Please, do give your carry routine a long hard look and modify it to suit what you have experienced.

    Never leave valuables in a vehicle if they are visible. No one even pays attention to car alarms any more. Not uncommon to hear one in a parking lot, and nobody even looks anymore. Smash and grab literally takes only a few seconds.

    I see this all too often, and even worse are the women that leave their purse in the shopping cart and then turn their back to the cart while looking for something on a shelf.

    Can I ask why? You left your purse in your vehicle instead of taking it with you!? We live and learn! I hope no one gets hurt!

    Do you have the serial number for the police and a receipt for insurance? Hopefully your little one finds its way home!
