    Do you get the same locker each time? I would set up a video camera in the locker that faces your locker so it records a shoulder level. If it was somebody that works there and they see you again they may be temped to try it again. No cameras in the lobby or parking lot? I would walk the property and look for cameras that may be set up at a neighboing store.

    That's not a bad idea.

    No, no cameras outside or in. I talked with the owner at length and she expressed a desire to get some, hmmm, wonder why?!

    That sucks man... I'm sorry. I've often thought about locking my gun in the gym locker room b/c I want to be armed as often as I can. Try not to beat yourself up --- you weighed the risk of needing your gun close by (with all the gym shootings -- I want to have a gun close by) vs it being stolen from the locker room. If only there was a half-decent way to carry while working out.... Well hope you have another gun to carry if not maybe you can use this unforunate event to get that new pistol you have really wanted for a while but couldn't justify buying because your current EDC was working fine.

    I understand how rotten you must feel. I keep a firearm with me when I'm at the gym.
    When I go to the gym, I keep my Glock in the car (well-hidden) and my P-3AT walks the treadmill with me.

    Much easier to have locked your gun in the car, but that's hindsight now.
    Hope they catch this dirtbag with a stolen firearm.

    Combo locks?

    Swatspyder (or anyone) -

    Can you explain how the "beer can" deal works?

    I've used those school type combo locks for years thinking that someone would have to use a bolt cutter to get in.

    Looks like I was way wrong.

    Any info appreciated.

    If the thief wanted to pawn it he would have taken billfolds and cash too.
    He had to come in with bolt cutters, or it was an inside job.

    Don't count on the pawn shop notifiying the police. I had some long guns stolen from my house. Only got one back when some guy who bought my gun from a pawn shop tried to board a plane with it. Customs ran the serial number and found out it was stolen, then confiscated it. Wrecked his hunting trip I'm sure. Check the pawn shops yourself! The shop that sold my gun wasn't far from where I live. I know how you feel man.

    Gyms are one of the most common locations for theft. That's one reason I don't go there anymore. The best exercise I've found is a thirty minute walk in the neighborhood. And the great thing about it is I'm armed every second and everything else, (wallet, keys, identity, etc. etc.) is protected at all times by that big Smith and Wesson on my hip.
