    Saw this in the local police report. I've never been to this particular gun shop because after having a convo once with this guy on the phone he seemed like your stereotypical curmudgeon gunshop guy.

    Anyway, here's the report:

    I'd have know about that too if I read past the obituaries on accesswaco. I may have been in there one time myself-don't remember. I do stay away from grumpy old curfartgeons as much as possible though.

    Never heard of the place ...but considering the neighboorhood, I'm, not surprised.

    Another +1 on the "I've heard of it, but never been there" list. I try to avoid that part of town when I can. I do business with Brazos Valley John Deere over there, but thats about it. Seems like there was a bar a few blocks up from there, Sues #2, that used to have a stabbing or a shooting about once a month.

    Long standing tradition on LaSalle. Used to be the Waco Drive In Theater there. It's now a flee market. There was a naked strip beer joint about 150 yards from the entrance to the drive in and as you waited for the cars to advance, you could see the cellulite rippling on the exotic dancers as they arrived at work. -The Showtime Lounge, that was it.

    I never understand the stupidity of robbing a gun store.

    It is like swimming with sharks with a suit made of meat.

    Like getting in a cage of angry gorillas smeared with banannas.

    Like going unarmed to a fight with a bear.

    Like announcing you're a representative of the Democratic (sic) party and expecting America to vote for you.

    What I have seen a few times around here is the perps steal a truck and crash it through the front door at night. You can load a lot of goodies in 4-5 minutes.

    It would seem these fellows were succesful in their robbery, as no arrests have been made. So perhaps they knew this shop was an easy target
    Not all of the gun shops have employees armed to the teeth.

    While I agree it's stupid, it still happens. Also, because the knuckleheads realize the owners/employees may be armed sometimes they come in shooting. There have been many gunshops robbed where the badguys start by executing the employees. Horrible stuff.

    We had a rash of that in Waco a decade or so ago. The gunshops all imbedded posts in front of the doors to stop it.
