    Good Phone Call.

    Last night while we were getting the motor home packed for the camping trip this weekend, I got a call from the neighbor lady behind us. Their house has been burgalariezed twice in the last 6 months. The first time the people got quite a bit of stuff, the second time (after alarm was installed) they only got 50 bucks and busted a window.

    Well they caught the guy that did the second burgalary. He had left prints all over the window he went through.

    One less BG on the street for a few days. My guess is that he probably won't spend any time if all in jail depending on his record and if he isn't tied to some burgalary ring.

    Hopefully he will pick a different area of town to apply his craft in the future. The only bad part of the call was that she is less interested in going to the CHL class with my wife in a couple of weeks.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Wonder how her thinking came to that conclusion....?

    Been victimized twice and now is less interested? Bring the wife and go have a friendly talk to inject some common sense. There's a lot more BG's from where that one came from.

    So they caught one guy and now she feels safe does she? Not very bright if you ask me. Remind her that the first thief is still out there and may be coming back.

    For a few days is correct...

    Did that thief live in the neighborhood?

    What's it going to take to get her attention, a home invasion?

    Good on the alarm, not so good on losing interest in the CHL.

    Good that they caught the guy. Hope he has a rough few hours in jail.

    What's that saying about leading a horse to water?

    Sounds like she stuck her head back in... the sand again. :)
