    True Story

    This is an OLD ONE but it's a true classic.
    Euclidean posted a comment about thieves "not wanting to go through a lot of trouble" & for some reason it just reminded me of this story.

    It was printed in one of the Gun Ragizines some years ago in their "DUMB CROOKS" section.
    I'll keep it short........
    This really "brilliant" thief breaks into a gun shop & steals this custom fully engraved extra fancy (I Think) double barrel Parker shotgun.
    I don't remember exactly what the gun was valued at but it was BIG bucks back then. Like $15,000
    Anyway.......he "Gets Away Scott Free" with the gun shop burglary & the police had no idea who committed that particular crime.
    So.........what (you ask) does he do next????
    He cuts the barrels off the shotgun & turns it into a "sawed off" & then uses it to do an armed robbery of a convenience store for a couple hundred bucks.
    And...gets caught!
    Is THAT dumb...or what?

    Ive Read this one and Heard this one but always wondered if it was urban Legend espically after watching Lock Stock and 2 smoking barrels .. Which kind of has the end result of this post they find out that the shotguns there getting ready to dump into the river are worth a ton ..

    These Days

    Who knows what is "urban" BS or not.
    I've "bit" on a few whoppers.
    I read this story...must be about 10 ~ 15 years ago.
    I wish I could find the original article.

    I love reading "Dumb Bad Guy" Stories.
    So...if anybody has one then free to post it 'cause I'll sure like reading it.
