Man, that is just wrong. Find a large oak tree and get a rope.................

Let my loss be a lesson. Cars do not make good gun safes.

I went shooting on Saturday and when I got home I got busy and did not unload my gun from the trunk. I got a call from a buddy to hit the range early Sunday morning so I got LAZY and left it in the trunk. Its safe in the trunk I thought.

They hit me in the night and went through the car, but what surprised me was they popped the trunk where it was stored. Lucky or did someone know it was there? not sure.

You get Lazy once and it burns you.

Another lesson on my behalf. I had my guns insured above and beyond your normal coverage. I was mistaken and thought it was a balloon coverage. I set it up 8 years ago when I was much younger and not to smart. Well since then I have made significant upgrades to the rifle since then...and my failure to notify them of the increase in value makes me only entitle to the value of it when it was a bone stock Rem PSS. $900.00.

Lets just say we are in discussions about value.

If your like me and upgrading your gear, Make a point to call your insurance provider and let them know. Its been a bad weekend so far and not looking like a great week!
