Daughter's BF steals Dad's FAs - Disturbing Details

4308 Views 47 Replies 35 Participants Last post by  esh21167
I was at the LGS/range yesterday and after testing the zero on my P365X's new Holosun I got acquinted with the Sales rep on the tactical section. The Sales rep got me into a conversation with another fellow customer who just purchased a P320 Compact. Now this is where the fun begins. This fellow customer had his guns, all stashed in a sports bag underneath his bed stolen by his daughter's boyfriend. The daughter gave away the location of the guns when the boyfriend ask her if there are guns in the house. The boyfriend is drifter with moving addresses. The dad also in his stress, instead of reporting to the authorities right away called the daughter's boyfriend if the latter has his firearms. 馃様 He gave the opportunity away. Several times.

Anyways, my BP is already high with the fun action I had in the range and this story just got me dead. This fellow told me the list of firearms he had in the bag. It's pretty plenty and a good mix. Will probably be found in Chicago and NY from different folks.

Ladies and gents, put some effort in keeping your firearms secure, specially when not in your person. It's good for everybody. I think.

We keep our firearms in a safe and our daughter does NOT know the combination. The safe had to be brought into the house with a forklift, so it's not leaving anytime soon.

They are gone. Unless supplementary insurance is purchased homeowners covers little in firearms. Although if storage is in a sports bag doubt it was that extensive. After the deducible he's in for a big loss. As far as criminal charges the daughter might get sucked into this,,,,unless she can convince the prosecutor that she is a total idiot.

This unfortunately is how the majority of gun owners 鈥榮tore鈥 their guns.
Not everyone has or can afford a safe.

That could make for some interesting family time depending on what kind of lawyer she is.

The younger one (lawyer) is street smart and savvy with a killer instinct. She will do just fine.

Same here. But not my wife, my girlfriend who theoretically knows what the combination
is..........although I have to remind her what it is every time. Let's just say when the chips
are down, she may not be much use :( :oops:

So, you think your safe is safe? Better bolt it to the floor. My friend had FIVE safes stolen from his house here in WVa. While he was at work, he lived alone, a bunch of guys using two pick-up trucks and a winch pulled the whole safes from his house after breaking down his garage door. He probably lost a hundred guns ... the safes were found in North Carolina with the doors cut off ... no guns were ever recovered. Nothing surprises me what people will do these days.

I keep everything locked up. If someone wants to get into my house, they will. I don't have to make it easy for them to access my guns. Very little will stop a determined (and prepared) thief, but I don't have to hand them over willingly!

Is that to say his safes were located in his garage? And presumably with no security system? If both are true, well... helluva terrible lesson to learn the hard way.

The described theft could have ended up murder. Happens sometimes.
Guy had to know his daughter liked the bad boys.

No way to store guns period, especially around kids or worse teenagers.

Well id be ****** and would track that sob down myself. However, I think I'd be more concerned about my daughters choice in a boyfriend. Good thing the boy friend only took a few guns, and not more important things.
