Mr Pope, I’m a new member to USCCA. This is the 1st video I’ve watched on this website.
I appreciate you sharing your attempted burglary and break in. I can understand the emotions to ‘protect’ your property (we should ALL be able to do that), but as you said, it’s more important to maintain presence of mind and keep you (and yours) safe. I agree.
What struck me about the video was… yes, you incorporate cameras, but you did not spend money to ‘fortify’ your busienss (even after the 1st attempt)? Since you run a Firearms training center, would this not be one of the 1st things you would do to the building is to put up Solid Doors? Bars over the windows, etc., to prevent ANY entry? seems it cost you a lot in damages, The perps, I’m sure, did not compensate you for that damage (and never will). sorry this happened to you. seems like a lot of busienss owners are losing a lot of money to these types of looting. sad, very sad.
