Don't worry they won't get far before they break down. HAHAHA
Cursed by their own badassery..
Additional security? Yeah, maybe take the keys out of them and figure out a different system for that...
Not necessarily. The nearby Navy base is fenced in, but they ran bundles of 2" thick steel cable about 3 feet up from the ground in the chain link fence. No way a car, SUV or pickup is going to get through that cable. Nothing short of an Abrahams A-1 at the very least.
That relies on being well patrolled too. Only a matter of moments to curt through with an acetylene torch.
You say that like they're driving it through or over the fence. No. They're cutting a hole in it. Still quite possible with the cables, and whereas it's illegal to enter private property without permission, you'll have a bit more than fines to deal with, if you get caught going onto a military base without permission. Nobody wants to come face to face with an MP on patrol when they're not supposed to be on that particular piece of property. lol.
A wall, would stop them making holes to drive through, even if they gained access to the property. It takes a little more noise, time & effort to make a hole in a wall. lol
I hate to tell you, but our military bases and National Guard facilities are not well protected. I read stories regularly about firearms being stolen right from the military and National Guard. It is believed that most of these thefts have help from the inside (gang members in our military is a huge problem).
I think the same may be happening here. There are people on the take to look the other way.
The only ones I have experience wth are the USMC bases in San Diego. Can't speak for the rest.
I worked in an armory for a good chunk of my time in the Marine Corps. I can tell you that you are going to have a really hard time stealing a weapon from a Marine Corps base. Reserve and National Guard facilities may not be well protected, but the weapons inside them are well protected, and if there is a weapon stolen from one, it is assuredly done with some sort of inside involvement.
Agreed. Some bases (NG, Army, Navy, Marines, etc) may not be secured the best, but you can be darn sure weapons and ammunition depots are well secured. The last NG unit I served in had three separate safes for the weapons, firing pins (depending on weapon) and ammunition. More than likely if there is a theft, they had "assistance" from someone on the inside.
God knows I spent many of nights walking the perimeter of our Armory at Camp Lejeune.... I have seen weapons lost during deployments in Puerto Rico for instances a M60a2 being lassoed by a local or a LT who got caught in quicksand in Italy lost a M16a2 and his 92f..... But blatant loss of weapons from a Active Duty military installation is rarely ever occurred unless it was someone from inside.
Another Trackhawk down. Bad roads in the west side of Michigan caused an accident with a car hauler and the rear fascia looks to be ripped off.
That sucks, hopefully it was "just" a 392.
