stolen

Postby Artifishual » Thu Jul 24, 2008 5:54 am

Went for an afternoon ride, last week, down to a small creek about 20 miles from our house. I guess we were all just bored. It was Tuesday or Wednesday, I can't remember (ms). Well we were way out in the woods so I decided to shoot my pistol. When we returned to the house I forgot to lock my truck door. Sunday morning I remembered that the pistol was still in my truck so I went out to retrieve it and it wasn't there. I searched all over, gone. I filed a police report thinking "what a waste of time and paper." Low and behold I got a phone call yesterday that the police had got my gun and the crinimals that took it were in jail. Wow, what a shocker. Not in a million years did I think I would ever see that gun again. The people that took it were riding bikes through the neighborhood checking for unlocked doors, the police officer called it "car hopping" they confessed to getting into more than 30 other cars. They both are looking at over 3 yrs in the state pen.

Yikes! I'd be wracked with guilt over where that gun could have gone and been used for. I'm glad they caught the theives.

I hate guns :x

Hmmmmm, saying you hate guns reminds me of one of my favorite quotes.

I hope you got a good set of gloves!!!

thank God it was retreived!

I just don't get the gun thing - but then guns are not as commonplace here in the UK as they are in the States

The most effective piece of Personal Protective Equipment against criminals who just don't seem to follow any gun control reform.

If we make guns illegal then only the criminals will have guns.

Couldn't get it to come up. It said it was 'unavailable'. Go to http://ohiorapidfire.com and look under the 'our own rapid rifles' link. The receiver for the HK they make is made by our company. We are doing a 9mm version now too that is in the tool build stage. The guy that owns that place has more guns than a small army. You wouldn't believe the market there is out there for guns like that. It blew my mind. He showed me, and let me shoot, his "assault 12 guage". It's a semi-auto 12 guage with a 30 round mag. We were felling small trees with it. Surprisingly it had less kick than my Mossberg 150. I"ll send you some videos that the owner of that co. had sent me on your yahoo email.

Sorry guys try this one http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 9675&hl=en

If for whatever reason the youtube gods don't allow this to open just search, Suzanna Gratia Hupp, on youtube or google videos. It's an older video and kinda grainy, but just listen to her testimony
