|fireron||I had something similar happen to my company car only they cut the fuel line instead. The only good part was about the thief's stupidity. When they slid out from underneath the car, their wallet came out of their back pocket and had all of their credit cards, ID and driver's license in it. Talk about justice...the cops loved it when I gave it to them!|

Here in lovely NC you are authorized the use of force (not including deadly force) to prevent theft - i.e. laying on hands, soft and hard. I would not be surprised to see a number of other states authorize a limited use of force to prevent theft. What makes that interesting, is the follow-on because adding violence, controlled or not, rarely DE-escalates a situation.
Also, while going hands on seems cool, I recommend mace/pepper/OC if permitted by law in your area. If you don't have any experience with it, beating someone's ass is hard work. Why settle for bruised hands/knuckles, ripped clothes, tired and sweaty for some punk when I could just douse him with OC and laugh at his misery with minimal exertion?
Anyhow, sorry to hear about the fuel being stolen, but since they have made this something of a recurring event - which is TERRIBLE OPSEC - you ought to run some R&S just to have the piece of mind knowing how the $hitbags are.

But more importantly, it tends to start arguments, and at some point, politics are brought up, and that always derails a thread. You are free to talk about guns in the "off topic" section.

|Lowerumble||Guns are more than guns right now, they are a hot button issue. So he doesn't want it to turn into a political argument and get the thread locked. I do think that other poster was not threatening to get Koeda banned so much as pointing out that you are in danger of being arrested if things ever got that far.|

|Duke-TJ||I agree with the handgun carrying. I ALWAYS carry, with permit. Where I live, holding someone at gunpoint until the police arrive isn't legal though.|

I wouldnt confront someone stealing my gas without a gun.Thats just asking to get wacked with a club or stabbed or shot.Best plan is to call 911 and report the thief on premise and then go confront detain them with a gun and someone backing you up if you are capable of doing it safely.
Had a guy pull in my drive one night looking for something to steal. Told wife to call 911 and my son to cover me while I went out to confront him. I approached him with gun drawn and told him to put his hands up and not get any ideas as that was a rifle barrel sticking out the front door and he had a red dot laser trained at his head so If I missed he wouldnt. He turned pasty white and put his hands up and then got on the ground where I held him until the cops came.In his truck they found one of my neighbors things including a couple of guns and he was armed as well.A few weeks later he was out on bail and was shot dead after beating some old man half to death while robbing him.He had beat the old man unconscious and took what he thought was all of his guns.The old man came to and went for a gun he had stashed in the sofa and delivered justice to the punk.You probably didnt hear about it on CNN because there was no political racial story to be made.

It went around a bit here a few years back with tapping gas tanks. They are also cutting the cats off around here - targeting a lot of church vans.
Most businesses that buy cats know - either they still buy them because they are in on it or they record you and turn you in.

|jadmt||actually you should rig up a false container that you fill with piss and an ounce of gas so it smells like gas and drive around the next day watching for somebody with fuel problems.|

|jadmt||a few years ago 3 young guys were severely burned when they put the gas they were stealing inside some open container inside their car and one of them tried to light a cigarette. Darwinism at its best.|
