Default Gun Safes stolen in Vista

600 pound safe stolen. This is why we bolt safes down. also why cameras are sh*t without an alarm system.

And alarm systems are sh*t when the cops take 1/2 hour to respond. Fill the safe with crap and hide a 1911 in the cat litter, no one will look there.

my alarm is so loud, my neighbors 5 doors down will be coming by to see wtf is going on. 30 minute response time it the reason you don't buy a sh*t safe.

Ugh, too close for comfort. They seem to know who has firearms and are prepared to take a heavy safe like that. It's disconcerting. I think it's time to ditch my calguns license plate cover unfortunately..

It's just advertising. I have no stickers.

A 600lb safe can be manhandled out of a garage easily enough, or cut apart in 5 minutes with an angle grinder:

This is why an RSC-rated safe is not really the best choice if you can help it. Most RSC-rated safes can be found for $500 for a gun-show special up to $10,000 for a Graffunder... and while the Graffunder is definitely more secure than a Stack-on, it's still nothing compared to a true TL-30 rated safe of the same size that can be found used for $2000 and new for $5000.

A 5524-sized TL-30 will weigh ~2500lbs and be impossible to move without actual equipment. Bolting would just be gravy on that.

Hope they find the dirtbags that did this.

This I have to agree with. The last time we were burgled, it was in the day time. I worked in Fallbrook, lived in Vista a quarter mile from the Sheriff's station as the crow files.

Alarm company called me and tells me the has been multiple breaches at the house and the Sheriffs notified.

I had to finish with a client which took about 10 minutes, and then drove the 17.5 miles to the house. I could hear the horns two/three blocks away.

No sheriff, no neighbors (a working neighborhood), just me.

About forty minutes later a lone Sheriff's unit arrived.

Things happen that prevent timely responses so like health care be prepared for the unpredictable.

Respectfully
Kyle

In addition to my alarm I added a private armed security company to my safety measures. They arrive within 3-5 min of a phone call from the alarm company, have their own alarm code and password in case the House has been broken into. They patroll 4-6 times a day are in the neighborhood 24/7 take in packages close gates and garages, check on unfamiliar vehicles, and will be waiting at your home in case you think someone is following you. Vacation checks include mail take in and daily video of them walking your property.
With overstretched law Enforcement, private security is the wave of the future.

This is such a shame and it irritates me greatly to see criminals taking advantage of others. They had obviously cased the place ahead of time. Perhaps they followed people home from the range? Otherwise, how is it they managed to pick out two homes of gun-owners?

I don't think that's an unreasonable idea. I understand another poster said that he wouldn't hide who he is and I respect that is his personal opinion. However, it has nothing to do with living in fear. Advertising "I have guns!" is a bit of a gamble when driving around in public. If you still wanted to show your 2A pride, I personally would lean towards having a Gadsden flag sticker on the back of the car.
