    Default house broken into.... firearms stolen...

    ok so a co-worker of mine recently told me that his fathers house was broken into and his safe with around 2 dozen rifles/handguns.... not sure how they got a 1k lb safe into a truck or whatever they did with it but im waiting on a list of them so i can list them here.... the police have been notified and have a list of them... all of the local stores have been notified so im just hoping the dumbasses did something stupid to get them caught..... if anyone hears anything let me know so i can let him know...

    A 1000 lb safe is childs play to move.

    It is critical to properly secure your safe to the floor and utilize an alarm system with protected communications.

    Always bolt to the floor, if in the basement...threaded rod right into the concrete.

    thats how my grandfathers is..... lagged into the floor.....i still dont see how 1000lbs is easy to move... even with a dolly its going to require atleast 2 people.... i mean i know how much 650lbs feels trying to lift that... i just hope the dumbasses do something to get themselves caught....

    1,000 pounds is easy to move - when you don't care bout the condition of the 1,000 pound object or the surrounding area after you are done.

    Bigrepp,
    If you can get the s/n's PM me with them if you don't want to post them. I can then pass them on to others I know. These are people, that I trust, that may be approached by others that want to sell something to get some quick money, nothing illegal has been offered (yet), but they can keep their eyes and ears open.

    The other way it could help is if I get someone that wants to do a transfer to a "buddy". By knowing the numbers I can discretely check them when doing the transfer to make sure it's not one of them.

    I would suspect though that the guns are far away by now, however, no one ever said crooks are smart so they may still in the area and someone may brag after they've had a few at the local gin mill.

    Agreed. Two guys and a pickup truck. Add one appliance dolly and away you go.
    Don't be an ass.
