Insurance is good, but so is a local burglar alarm, just as a deterrent - even if not monitored.

Ya, make it prepackaged, easier for thieves to take out (one shot as opposed to repeated trips with gun cases). Lol, the small long ones (7 rifles) cost about $130, and aren't very heavy at all. I'm looking at getting one when I can afford the $350, the same dual door one that Apoc has. Even that one is only 117lbs, but is a big brute.

Who's going to come when the alarm goes off? Thieves know they have 15 minutes to grab and go.

When my folks got burgled my mom asked if an alarm would have helped, the insurance adjuster said buy a loud dog.

Sorry about your loss.... dam everything was taken? including your gears as well?!!! That kind of loss would put me out of AS for a good 4+ years.... Sorry about your loss, hope they will find those thiefs. I had a brake in before and its not a pleasent feeling even if its a little loss.

Now I need a gun safe, I was wondering where can I get those things, I know Canadian tire sells them, but not too sure of their quality. Can someone in Calgary let my know where to get a good pistal safe, and rifle safe (houses at least 3-4 guns). Don't know too much realsteel shops except Shooting Edge.

Thanks

I found some at the outdoors place in deerfoot meadows. (the name of it escapes me at the moment. you'll find them in the rear of the store on the right side.

Memory serves the prices (and quality) fits all budgets.

Its "Wholesale Sports", good for us Calgary guys, not good for the OP as he is in BC.

i posted a response on bcac sorry to here this has happened to you. do you have one or two hydro meters on the house Ryan? if there is only one then she should be willing to make a claim as the suite is not a legal suite in Victoria, if she is collecting revenue from renting the suite to you she is also responsible for all contents under her insurance. (assuming she has insurance) just a FYI.

I'm so sorry to that your gear and weapons were stolen. How horrible and unfortunate given the investment you have contributed to your passtime. MY sincerest condolences to you. I hnestly hope that this works out for you. Have the police released any informaton on leads in the case or are they even going to bother looking in to it in depth (one of my friends had a robbery in his house and apparently the police only pretended to listen because they got the report completely wrong, so they went private and manage to find the culprits it turned out to be someone on the neighbouring street)?Oh no! a Classic Army SLR 105 that's a really nice gun, I wanted to purchase that myself,but then I realized the G36 models were more appealing to me for some reason. Still though, I'm sorry for your loss. I'd most likely cry if I were you (or pull my hair out) but then again I'm a woosy when it comes to things similar to this so... :'(

The worst part is that now you won't get to play, hopefully you'll be able to borrow a friend's gun and play a game once in a while, keep your morale up.

Warmth and best of luck, my sincere appologies,

PvtSpartykus.

At 200+ pounds, being the size it is, and bolted into the wall studs in your closet, any thief is going to have to make a hell of a racket to bust it open and/or move it.

This is a good lesson for all you new players, too: you're expected to treat your airsoft guns like real firearms at the field, so why not treat them like real firearms at home, too? Buy a gun safe, and use trigger locks.
duely noted and agreed upon, I actually had no idea one could aquire a safe to carry guns. To be frank, I hadn't considered the option.

This is not true.. the home owner is not responsible for coverage to third party contents.

She did not suffer any loss so she is not entitled to be indemnified .. no loss no claim.

She could make a claim for a person who is related to her under her policy, but the contents of an Unrelated tenant or Boarder is typically not insurable.

Policy wordings do change from time to time and different companies do offer different coverages.. but the principle of indemnification for loss is universal.

She must prove her loss to claim.. she suffered no loss.. so no claim provable.

A pro on a secluded street might stick around, but no amatuer is going to stick around once an exterior siren starts howling.

I disagree, similar to Lisa, I've had an encouter where the crooks stole what they could before the police arrived. Also, when choosing insurances, you get the option of which force is sent to most immediately: private police (supplied by the insurance agency; essentially the insurace company's 'police' force), The municipa police force or the emergency services such as ambulance and firefighters. According to my X-English teacher with whom I used to speak avidly about a plethora of subjects (yes, I used plethora in a post!) and who had previousy been employed by the Ottawa police warden to evaluate the police men entering the police force through the program offered at Carleton university, the candidates that 'didn't make the cut' when asked the essay question "why do you want to be a law enforcer" went in to private home security. The candidates in question would answer the question with statements such as: "I really want those cool looking glasses", " I want to shoot someone", "I want to hold a real gun" and even "I want to night-stick someone so they learn to respect the law". If that kind of a person was to be the firt person on the scene, not only would I be doubtful tat they would catch the culprit, I ask myself the question: would he really care at all?

again, I'm sorry for your loss and I am not joking when I say that it was tradgic!

regards,
