The number of guns being stolen during burglaries is staggering. Please secure your property — I can teach you how if you book an appointment for a security assessment. If you own firearms, it is incumbent upon you to properly safeguard those weapons. If you have children and teens in your home, you could be saving a life by properly securing and storing firearms. Keep a property inventory in a safe place of your weapons with make, model, caliber, serial number and any distinguishing features or accessories and the color. If the gun is recovered at some point, a record of your gun on a police report will help verify the gun is your property and it can be returned to you.
