Its a sniper rifle Razz
30'06 is a rifle caliber bullet and not only used in sniper rifles a scope doesn't turn a rifle into a sniper rifle if that was the case I have a 20 g sniper shot gun

too far man, too far. at most an m80, thief will blow a nut and probably think twice about stealing a bike again!

My custom OnOne 456 Evo bike got took
from my van last nite. It had fox float and slx groupset and hope/mavic wheelset.

It was taken from Solihull area(south birmingham) so could be anywhere area the midland I'd imagine.

I wouldn't want to go down for hurting someone with a quarter stick of dynamite.

In another thread I saw "Check the local Pawn Shops" and I thought that'd be good to add to this. also hang around the bad area of town, where all the drugs and stuff are. you'll see A LOT of nice bikes around that area of town.

LOL So true, but I find it funny that the majority know jack shit when it comes to bikes

I find it just pure wrong that someone would steal a bike and most of the time its just because it looks nice and dont know its true value.

There is some gypsies that live near me riding about on a 06 big hit withh boxxers hope hubs mavic rims all the kit but he sprayed it tan , I asked where did you get it he paused then said eBay , I asked how much he said 50 pound nervously , it kills me to know someone probably spent a fair amount of time and money on it for them to go f*ck it up , they also followed me home after and tried to take mine ! If they get your bikes you will NEVER Get them back police are scared of them

This is what I mean they don't know its true value or what its made for. Absolutely love the fact he said "uuhhm £50"

I went through the security issue with my motorbike. The best way to secure is to get an Almax chain, squire ss65 lock and a ground anchor. Ive read countless stories of unsuccessful attempts on these.
Or you could get one of these Smile

I had my bike stolen three times from me. I live in an area where we have a pretty high theft rate here. First time it was stolen , I was not able to recover it. I searched all over ebay and craigslist. Second time my bike got stolen (a different bike ) I was able to recover it by going to the police, filing a report and they somehow caught the thief when he was trying to sell it on a flea market(I gave the police pics of the bike and a serial number). The next day I got a bicycle insurance policy from Velosurance and in 2 months my bike that cops recovered got stolen again. THis time I was not able to get it back but at least with the police report the insurance company processed my claim and reimbursed me the cost of the bike. My advice : use better locks, U-locks preferably, stay away from chain locks.
