Crazy/ gutsy gun thief.

This is only an hour or so away from me. I just saw it on the local news. This thief used his truck to bust into more than one gun store to steal guns. The ATF and local authorities are seeking help from the public. This has to be the craziest thief that I've ever heard of. Multiple stores in the same night? 8:30 pm? He had to be on drugs

That approach is common.

Lots of stores that stock expensive and readily removeable merchandise have gone to building bollards around the front of the building to prevent this.

Is it common for them to hit multiple places like that on the same night? I've been to one of the shops before and it's in a fairly busy part of town on a main road.

Hard to see how this helps us with training and tactics.
