    So, someone jimmied my doors and took everything that was easy to carry. Including my B.O.B... Lost everything, emergency food and water, fire starters, tent, sleeping bag, spare clothing, Fenix PD32 and LD01, RAT 5, Estwing hatchet, a couple of knives my father and grandfather made, water filters, canteen, everything, plus the ALICE pack it was in. They also took my messenger bag which I'd not carried up because of the snowstorm which had my laptop, books, everything...

    My only hope is that some nice person stumbles across this idiot during the zombie apocalypse and makes good use of my gear...

    As a Jeep (Wrangler) owner I can sympathize and totally relate. I've had me stuff stolen numerous times. You have the right attitude though. They will definitely get eaten by zombies!

    Yeah, there's no chance. Even the cop that took my report didn't argue when I mentioned that none of it would be recovered...

    I just got lucky that the Moonglow Native I was shipping back to Jon was in my coat and not in the car... They even took a pair of dress shoes that I had in there...

    :( Sorry to hear that! It's not much, but I have a brand new Voodoo Tactical pack that's got your name written on it if you're interested, at no cost to you.

    Had it up in my BST for a while. But I think you'd make better use of it to get you started again. :)

    Regardless of situation, I'm always interested in gear ;) thank you! But I know you're a bit strapped too, so if you can get use/$$ out of it do so.

    Yeah, that :censored: sucks. Some :censored: broke out the back window of my roomie's car and stole my school pack, plus "extras". I was so angry, I couldn't see straight for two days.

    I'm glad you're handling it far better than I did.

    It's all yours. :) I ask only one thing - to pay it forward when you're in a good place to do so and IF it has served its purpose for you/you move on to another pack. PM inbound.

    Well, this answers my question on if keeping a CCW pistol in my BOB is a good idea.

    In the spirit of generosity I've seen here, PM me your address and I'll add a new Swiss Army knife to the pack that moonshine is sending you. Again, just pay it forward.

    I thankfully didn't have a firearm in my bag. I think I'll eventually get a lockbox and chain it to the seat. Not fool proof, but thwarts simple car hopping. And thanks!

    Yeah - I don't keep anything special or expensive in my car BOB unless I know I'm going out of town or some kind of an extended trip.

    Generally speaking, keeping things in your glovebox are safer than anything clearly visible in the passenger areas. Car breakins are crimes of opportunity - without the hint of significant return, like a backpack in the backseat, or a purse, or whatever, odds are thieves won't try to break in just for giggles.
