About that Safe Storage of Firearms at Shooting Clubs only…

Cuatro encapuchados irrumpieron ayer en la galería de tiro privada situada en un polideportivo municipal de San Sebastián de los Reyes (83.000 habitantes), donde se apoderaron de unas cien armas y munición, según confirmaron fuentes de la Jefatura Superior de Policía de Madrid. Los ladrones utilizaron un BMW 318 que después incendiaron en un descampado de Rivas-Vaciamadrid.

“Hey Jose, do we rather go to one hundred houses to steal guns or do we rather go to one place where they are “safely stored?”
“Shit Juan, I don’t know. Lemme think about it for a while and I’ll call you back.”

When I originally read the article, I went: “Yep, that worked real well.” But a couple of things were bothering me: It happened at a “private” range in a Government Sports Center in Spain (imagine something like an Olympic Village where you can vacation.) I checked the range’s website and it has only 5 lanes…what? The article mentions that all the handguns were KH HK and only the same model as Law Enforcement uses in Spain and that they have so many because they “rent them.” The range also has classes, actually one class… on police handgun training.

Did Bad Guys broke into a Police Range armory and stole their guns?

OK people, stop laughing now.

    1. Given the stories of police officers being negligent with their sidearms and how many police-issue weapons and accessories end up on the criminal market, if I was going to try and get my hands on a stolen gun I’d target police officers.
