    "For Sale Stolen Gun"

    That's an attention grabber. On a local forum I frequent a member has posted, in a sale sub-forum, pictures of gun of his that was stolen. A BOLO, if you will. The ad/notice reads:

    A few nights ago had somebody break in to my truck and stole a gun. im in bartow county. It was a older s&w 38sp nickel plated. If you see it for sell let me know. the serial number is 15044


    I don't mind "truck guns" but this is just a reminder that guns should be secured in your home if at all possible. Maybe the guy had a lock box in his truck, I don't know. I have found lock boxes to be of minimum utility, and easily defeated by a motivated thief with simple tools. There are times when we need to store the gun in the car; but when you are home, I don't see why it is too much trouble to bring it in and lock it up....

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    I see no reason to leave a gun in a vehicle overnight while at home. I do hope this gentlemen is able to recover his property though.

    I agree. I have a cable safe in my car. I use it when I'm going into no carry areas...sometimes. It would stop a smash and grab, but not someone with bolt cutters.
