I hate a thief

I came out of Wal Mart today in Meridian Ms to find my front drivers door opened. When I looked inside, my laptop was sitting crooked on my console. I figured someone tried to steal it but saw it looked like I was trying to bring Frankenstein back to life with all the cables hooked up to it. That's when they looked down and saw my pistol between my seat and my console. . . . Yep, my 92FS Beretta that I've had for almost 20 years is now in some crack heads hands. First thing I did was contact Wal Mart security to have them check the video. I told the guy he only needed to check in the last 10 minutes. I had gone inside the store to get a battery and came back out and it was gone. I was in the store less than 5 minutes. He told me if I had been parked 10 feet to the left it would have been on video but where I parked, there was no camera covering that part of Wal Mart. NO THE TRUCK WASN'T LOCKED. ANYONE THAT TELLS ME i SHOULD HAVE LOCKED MY TRUCK IS POINTING OUT THE OBVIOUS AND SHOULD GO AHEAD AND PICK UP A STICK AND BEAT A DEAD HORSE. LOL Anyway, I called to local police dept and filed a stolen weapon report. That is the only pistol I own, (owned) that is registered in my name so I reported it real quick. This was around 11:00 this morning. See the pic below and tell me if YOU would walk up to that truck in the middle of the day in a Wal Mart parking lot and steal something from the cab. The guy was either extremely stupid or had balls the size of basketballs.

That really sucks. It is a messed up world we live in. Did the cops check for prints on the truck? If not, he probably won't get caught till he does something else. I am crossing my fingers he gets caught. BTW, I know it is obvious but did the camera show anyone coming or going from the vicinity of your truck?

Sorry, gotta do it.

That sucks man. More than likely you will never see your pistol again, but I wish you luck.

And yeah, that's pretty ballsy if that's where you were parked

I figured the horse beating graphic would pop up pretty quick LOL The cop never got out of his car. He sit in the AC and took my information, wrote a number on a scrap piece of paper and told me to check back Friday for a report. That's exactly where the truck was sitting. I have no illusions of getting my pistol back. I know I'll never see it again. I hope the thing accidentally fires and hit's the guy in the nuts. Unfortunately the 92FS has a roll away firing pin when it's on safe so I don't see the accidental discharge thing happening.

SOOOOOOOO, I'm in the market for a new pistol.

That sucks.I have a buddy that never locks his doors.His motto is.."If they wanna steal anything,go ahead.I'm not gonna stop them by locking the doors.Atleast I won't have to replace a broken window!!"

Monster, there is a little truth to that. You can't make anything impossible to steal. The idea is to make your's more trouble than the next guy's. Sad way to look at it but that is how it is. I bet there are thieves that just go along pulling handles.

Bruin, we can only hope the idiot shoots himself. I know it is early but, on a more positive note, any idea what you are looking for in your next handgun? I am a wheelgun fan myself, but I really like the the 92/96 Berettas fit the hand. If they came with adjustable sights i would already own one.

I've never owned a wheel gun. Heck man it's never to early to start looking. If I find one I like, I'll own it tonight. I sure liked the feel of the 92 series. I'd like to get a .40 or .45 but I have about 600 rounds of 9mm for the one that got stolen.

Another pic of the truck location. I had my tail gate down, my tools and some old batteries on the tail gate. The guy had nerve if nothing else.

Let me know if you need to get rid of some 9mm rounds.

If I get pulled over with my gun there gonna think I'm on a mission. I have 2 10 round magazines with hollow points and 2 15 round mags with full metal jackets. All in my driver door and in center console I have a 50 round box of HP and FMJ.

I never locked my truck before I got a pistol as most everything I had could be easily replaced and wouldn't cost as much as the broken window but know I lock it no matter where I'm at.

Not sure on what size gun your looking at but I really like the ruger SR9c, it also comes with a pretty reasonable price tag
