I absolutely HATE thieves! They have been known in our area of SW Oregon to simply come up missing at some point.My old ones were stolen in 2000 when we moved to Tennessee. All I have now is a 45 and 50 cal Thompson but no photos. Some where I have photos of me at Frendship Indiana competing as a mountain man about 50 years ago when I was 28 to 30 and was not as good looking as I am now.
Lots of folks here have backhoes and lots of rural acreage surrounded by miles of BLM forests.
I called the police after my home and shop were broken into and burgled. They do NOT respond to home alarm systems.
The police said "We don't come out to or investigate non-violent crimes, but YOU can file a report on-line if you want and we'll file it for you.. Lame.
Before they broke in, they clipped our telephone and internet lines.
Once in, they stole our inside and outside security cameras and recorders so we can't ID them and then went for the safe, guns, cash/jewelry and tools. Loaded it all in our truck and made a get-a-way. They better fear ME more than the police!
