    (Hope this is the section to post this in)... I know I heard this on the way in to work this morning on the radio, but I can't find it anywhere...story went that someone stuffed guns down their pants to rob the place. Then, when police, tv crew and everyone was there, the robber came back in and was (obviously) caught--cops, owner and owners son recognized him. I can't find any news about this at the moment though, but am 100% sure I heard this story on the radio this morning.... Anyone else hear this or see the story anywhere?

    If that is the guy in the picture they have, I want to know where he would put a rifle to steal it?

    His belt is down below the bottom of his butt from the way it looks. :screwy:

    Bullseye can get really crowded.
    And many of the long guns are on racks in the middle of the store. There could be a crowd of customers 2 layers deep blocking the view of the rifles from the staff behind the counter.

    I guess shoplifting even big items is possible. Especially if the bad guys travel in packs and others surround the thief while he stuffs a carbine down his pants. (I doubt any Mosin 91/30 rifles were taken in this manner).

    Remember that the D.C. sniper murderers stole their Bushmaster AR rifle from the sales floor of a gun shop, too.

    Maybe gun dealers ought to keep the guns behind the counter?
    Just an idea.

    I was at the store yesterday and they said that he had putt them in his baggy pants. He walked a little funny, but they didn't think anything of it till after they realized they were missing two guns. when he came back a couple of days later, they knew exactly who he was and were able to apprehend him.

    I believe they said it was some keltec 9mm long gun. I hope they recover them. I hate knowing that the criminals have any firearms.

    They do keep a lot of firearms behind the counter but I guess they need more space to merchandise the items.

    Yeah, but I think in this case the store had so many guns that they would not fit behind the counter. They could just do what they do at the gun shows though. Run an electronic cable through the trigger guards that sets of an alarm when disconnected. Although that would mean customers would have to ask before handling any of the guns, which I don't think is a bad idea anyway.

    I like the cable idea better than sholving all the guns out of reach. waiting to get service is 1 of my pet peeves...
