    Noticed a Few report's on Boards about
    Air Gun Theft's

    Have you made a record or your Air Gun's
    With picture records

    As seems some do not even make a record of Serial Numbers
    Aware some do picture cards - with All details

    Do not be surprise if the Police give you grief if Stolen from a Vehicle

    As under the VCR Bill they should only be in a Vehicle on a way to or from a Legal Shoot

    Yes I did it for my home insurance Bob, I don't know who was more shocked the bloke at the insurance company or me when all was totted up! :eek:

    The last theft I heard was the Daystate break in, so I don't think it's a common thing thankfully. Providing you take reasonable precautions as you would with any valuable item there won't be an issue with the Police.

    I have pictures of all of them and a list of serial numbers which I keep on my phone. Not all airguns have serial numbers though.

    And if any of mine were to be nicked from the car it would definitely be to/from a shoot, to/from somewhere I was staying before a shoot, or to/from a post office having posted or collected one.

    Yep insured but there is only one of mine in the world stock wise and god/allah/Buddha whoever help anyone who thinks its a good idea to try and borrow it off me:cool:

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you." :D:D
