So a good friend called me up yesterday and told me that his house was robbed.
When they returned home after work they walked into a ransacked home.
They had crap thrown all over the place and furniture broken.
Now here comes the worst part. They had two gun cases completely emptied.
The BGs got away with 4 shotguns, 2 rifles, and 3 hand guns along with electronics and jewelry.

That would ruin anyone's day...sorry to hear this.
A good safe is not a 100% fix, but it sure slows them down.

2 things -
1) A good alarm system.
2) A good safe, bolted to the slab somewhere in the house. the safe should be at least 10-gauge steel so they can't use a pickaxe to punch a hole in it to finish the job with a regular axe or saw.....

Sorry to hear this. I know the feeling of walking into a wrecked house and it's not one I'd ever like to repeat.

Sorry to hear this. Were the guns in safes? You said, "2 gun cases". If they were in safes, what kind of safes?

Gun cases FTL.
Might as well wrap your guns in plastic wrap and leave them on the living room floor. :|

Sorry to hear that. My uncle has a gun case and I keep trying to talk him into getting a proper safe.
