Thanks for sharing this Brauner, another unspeakable attack in the middle of a city.... I believe this is a link to the news:

Ok, link is right

Blown up?! I can’t read the news site, but was there inventory stolen?

That’s a very aggressive approach than the usual break ins.

Oh no! This is so sad and just horrible

At least no one was hurt, but such a tragedy. Why, why are there such individuals who do these things?

Sad. I wonder if the watches were taken

before it was blown up. Things like this make me not want to wear my Rolex, among others out in public anymore. Too many prying eyes and desperate people.

My wife and I haven't travelled...

 By: mdg : March 22nd, 2023-15:33
...with our Rolex's in years. Only locally and even that is getting problematic. I live in a very nice part of California and things shouldn't be like this...

In reality they shouldn't be like that anywhere.

It is only getting worse. I carry a concealed gun, not that I am going to be a hero, but I refuse to be a helpless victim and just give in. If they want my watch they can have it, same goes for money. My life, not so fast.

This appears to be what he is saying

Yes, wouldn't you be?

Almost every instance of training I've heard of teaches 'center mass'

No shooting the gun out of their hand...

Kill them or wound them, either way

 By: Thomas_3 : March 23rd, 2023-13:11
someone is probably going to sue you. The shooter, or the shooter's family, even if the shooting was deemed justified. Shoot the shooter, save numerus lives and you still end up the loser. Won't stop me from carrying though. "Why did you have to kill him,...  

Who wouldn't ?

AFAIK it is nearly impossible to get a concealed carry permit in California...

 By: mdg : March 22nd, 2023-19:30
...unless you are very politically connected.

I can believe it...

 By: mdg : March 22nd, 2023-19:48
...same in AZ if I'm not mistaken, going from what I've seen in Scottsdale...

Insurance fraud?

Or a warning from underworld creditors? Of course I don't know anything but those would seem to be the most natural explanations, right?

I do not want to go that far. It is like these cases we have here

 By: brauner : March 22nd, 2023-20:03
where some guys come in with a powerful car, blow up a cash machine and get the shortest way to a border line, Netherlands or Belgium.

But I'm still putting that down as Theory #3.

We will see🙂
