Got a lesson in loserdom

Bought 3 sheets of 3/8" OSB. Stopped at OB tasty weasel in longmont on the way home. Didn't think it was a big deal, but when I left OB, they were moved around, not pulled out. Stopped at King Soopers in gunbarrel on the way home to grab some grub. Don't remember the door on the topper being flipped up, but that could be OB affect! Got home, started the grill, went and hauled 1 sheet of OSB from my truck. Arseholes stole 2 of the sheets out of the back.... fk... really... OSB? worth a trip to jail? really? Guess I'm the guy who got a lesson. And the government wants to take away our defense. Sorry, had to vent, might soak in my stupidity I'll learn...

Have never had that happen in Longmont after almost 20 years here. Sounds like human problems.

Just be thankful you weren't in Colo Spgs, you would have lost the wood, topper, and the truck. You got off easy .

Yep, I've heard a few unfortunate stories about the springs. I probably shouldn't have posted this. It didn't happen in Longduckdongmont, but it could have. I'm still not sure where, but I think it was the grocery store, which is pretty bold and scary. Might have been in from of my house too, which is probably more scary. Just have to be smarter than them. Everything I have is locked up, but... Just hoping people keep their eyes more open than mine were.

In this day and age you need to have your situational awareness running at 100% all the time. It sucks but it is the world we now live in. Im a big believer in Karma but I carry concealed to help out if needed......

No mention was made of shooting anyone over OSB theft. Sounds like his concealed carry is part of his personal protection preparation. Really, do you always jump to conclusions?

I like how everyone here is afraid of the springs lol.

Coming from Louisiana I can tell you that a bad neighborhood in the springs is like an average neighborhood in New Orleans or Shreveport.

I remember first moving here and being warned about certain neighborhoods in the Springs. AFTER I'd already been there and hadn't felt uncomfortable at all, just what I'd have considered, "average". Coloradans sure are sheltered.

He doesn't even really know when or where they were nicked, obviously a weapon wouldn't have made any difference.

Really? He said the govt wants to take away his defenses. In context, that could only mean that he is glad to have a firearm for stuff like this.
Catching someone stealing $30 bucks worth of stuff is no reason to pull a gun or to "flash" one either.

I have had more stuff stolen from me than I can remember and have never felt the urge to pull a gun on them for it.

This is where all of the gun discussion goes off the rails. Gun ownership (yes I own guns) is for self defense, target practice or hunting. When guys talk about the 2nd amendment in regards to petty plywood theft you are not helping the cause. YRMV
