    Really sorry to hear that Drake, there are certainly some a*******'s around. Hope you get all your gear back and in good condition, at least you have the serial numbers so that may help

    sorry to hear this distressing news Jim. Hope they catch the low life bottom feeders and if not I hope it happens quite regularly to them. I know your feeling...had one stolen in Kuala Lumpur and it really leaves a bad feeling eh.

    It's not like there are 100's of peeps with Nikon 3100's in Coonable - I hope they find they buggas!

    Does your house holders insurance cover the gear?

    Jim, just like the others I am really sorry to hear this horrible news. It is not fair that they targetted the one thing that means the most to you. You must be so mad right now, I know I am annoyed for you.
    It does seem like it was someone who knew you had a camera, but I guess that was the whole town. Good luck with the police

    Sad news, but a good reminder to ALL that you should insure your property.

    Consider purchasing a safe too, you can get them for ~$80 which while not fireproof, will stop thieves.

    Sorry to hear of your gear getting stolen Jim, I hope they do catch up with the perpatrators

    And the Police get a good Mug shot of them with your camera to stick on the Station wall for all to see .... that would be Karma !!

    Sorry to hear about the theft Jimmy. I know how hard you worked to get it, and how excited you got when you got it.
    Theft to me is one of the biggest violations against another person. A liar being the biggest.
    I hope they catch the A-sole who stole from you. And hang them by the balls until their eyes pop out.
