    This can't last long. Trucks are gettin' lighter every year and pretty soon......there won't be anything made that could break through a glass door.

    All the LGSs here have exactly that - I was just at mine this afternoon. There are three lalley (sp?) columns in front. I also wonder if that's why BPS and Academy put the gun bar and ammo well inside the store.

    Not here apparently. Some years ago, there was a rash of fine, upstanding, misunderstood waifs using cars to run down mailboxes. The local spokesman for the police department suggested (and did) this: two railroad cross ties, set vertically in concrete, slightly in front and on either side of his mailbox. Some days later, he heard a crash out front. Went out to find various auto body parts on the ground near the cross tie and an unscathed mail box. Those shenanigans stopped.

    IT really slows the process down when you are trying to hoist guns and Merchandise through a hole in the roof as opposed to 6-7--8 guys running in through a open hole in the wall or door and loading up the vehicle with the stolen goods.
    its about slowing the bad guys down if they insist on trying this crap.
    motion detectors in the ceiling kind help with roof top burglars as well.
    its a combination of several things to help.
    every gun shop/ pawn shop robbery that I have seen in the last 12-18 months since this became popular did not have the steel pipe barriers in the sidewalk around the store.

    I just stopped at Bulldog. The truck was, indeed, stolen, been recovered since. The perpetrators were idiots, stole a few cheap guns and totally ignored the big buck rifles and high end 1911s worth a whole lot more. Retired cop who's a regular there says it was probably kids and a spur of the moment thing.
    Instead of banning guns, limiting freedom and taking our rights, why don't you try just leaving us the heck alone, see how that works.

    They're open for business, with tire skid marks still on floor. Now that really adds some character to the place!

    Don't even talk about self driving vehicles, they are a bigger threat to my well being than any criminal. When they come along they could put a serious hurt on my lively hood. Not to mention that I think putting your life in the "hands" of a computer at 70 MPH is crazy.
