    Tweekers hit Sandies car last night,didn`t get much but tore the inside to heck. The neighbor got his CB radio stolen out of his truck. I didn`t hear a thing last night. They`re gettin sneaky. The Police made a report and said make sure they`re inside the house with no drag marks.

    That's a crying shame.

    Yep, don't be leaving any drag marks :rolleyes: You and the neighbors might out put up signs? Entry Way to Heaven...Trespass here or something like that. Don't rightly know where you're at, but an honest to goodness "watch team" or individual(s) at differing hours around the clock may help everyone figure out who the Bad Guys are. Don't need a Geo. Zimmerman unless truly justified under your State Statutes!

    I live in the farm country and unless your a recognized resident, family or friend...folks WILL come, investigate & ask "Whatchadoin roun here?" We also had a varmint in our midst that was borrowing without asking...he's still in County awaiting trial from October. Kind of odd that he didn't "hit" folks houses & barns that do much firearms shooting???

    Dead men tell no lies and a lot of us subscribe to kill 'em all and let GOD sort them out. MO's Castle Doctrine IS ENFORCED here! Never relish the idea, but about the only way to stop BGs from getting bad habits is to break the cycle of crime!

    I'm saddened and truly sorry your wife's vehicle, your family and neighbors suffering needlessly at the hands of a growing Ilk! I hope someone comes up with solid leads that allow the ID and capture of those responsible. That crack stuff must be an evil mistress that is expensive to maintain. Sure ain't worth stealing nowadays when so many states back the landowners'/occupants' use of deadly force, unless it is to feed the habit?!!!

    Sorry to hear of your misfortune.
    Considering the unemployment, drug additions and lack of morality in general, these types of incidents seem to be more common place. Very few neighborhoods are exempt. There are precautions that we can take but non are foolproof.

    I put up a security light on the front porch so if anyone walks around the vehicles it will light up.We live on the edge of town and Our cul di sac is very dark. Our castle doctrine states they must be inside. I think I`ll take a few of these 3" mags and make some rocksalt surprise.

    The powder may not burn well if you can't get a matching weight of Salt (too light) when you change payloads! I remember having a heck of a time getting some slow-burning "mag powders" to ignite properly without enough pressure (90 lbs compression) when seating the wad(s). If the hull was old and a bit tattered, the crimps would loosen (decrease compaction on powder) and it'd make a mess with a lot of un-burnt powder in the bore and sometimes the wad still in the tube. Carried and used a short 3/8" socket extension to knock the wad out.

    I've got a couple of Spec. FX rounds that might do the trick as long as you backed them up with a larger shot or slug round for good measure...just in case. Darn moral decline and decay of America :mad: Hope we can salvage her for our grandkids' sakes :confused:
