    It looks like the scum of the earth caught me slipping. I forgot to put the lock on my cage(on the trailer) yesterday and I went out this morning to find one BR-420 and two FS-85's gone. They were nice enough to leave me the 5 year old BR-320. Im wondering If I should make a police report and claim it on my insurance or take the lick for having a stupid moment.

    Put the lock back on and then break it off then call the police and your insurance. :drinkup:

    you don't need a broken lock to report it or file a claim. just because something is not locked does not mean it's okay for some ******* to steal it. you have more than a $1000 of equipment gone. if your deductable is 500 you should have 500 coming back to you.

    My equipment is insured for REPLACEMENT VALUE. Even if my ZTR is 10 years old and worth $500 I will get $9300 for replacement if it gets stolen :D. You should make sure you are insured for replacement and not value at the time of incident.

    Cheers
    Jeff
