Thief BUSTED. - Page 3

post #61 of 83

Although I ski with vintage skis, they are never out of my sight. Last season on one trip I noticed about three younger guys at different times curiously looking at my skis. I could tell they were sizing them up for snatching.

They were likely trying to figure out just what the heck they were.  Even kids know  what's easy to sell and hard to trace.  I doubt that any fool would try to steal rare, vintage gear when so many other high yield easily sold options were probably available.

That IS excessively harsh.

I would think just a finger would be a sufficient deterrent.

I've stopped to look at other people's skis out of curiosity before, and I promise I had no intent to steal.  The three guys you mentioned may have simply been thinking, "What are those?  They look old."

Eating lunch on the deck at A-Basin I saw a gal pick up my skis.  Never thought I could move so fast in ski boots but by the time I got down to the rack she was gone and my skis were still there.  I think she'd just made a mistake but I brought them back up to the deck with me.  I'm a little paranoid because my bindings are adjustable front and back so they'd be easy to fit another skier.

hmm, never thought of the added attraction to adjustable/demo  bindings....

I've seen lots of people skiing with their guns....myself included

How do you carry it? On the waist?

Around the town? Around the base village? The local bar 1/2 mile from the lift? That's what I'm referring to. Those type of consequences are much rarer in Tahoe, Colorado, New York, etc. etc. 

Sorry but you do know Colorado is open carry state right? In fact there are very few states that prohibit open carry

That's the way it should be in every State. It's our right according to the Constitution, we don't need permission from the government.

Of course because everybody knows we need a "well regulated militia" on the ski slopes just like everywhere else.

Actually no. Their is no permit required for open carry in colorado. The only place where it is prohibited is in Denver and it's county and then the standard federal buildings/ schools ect. 

 

Colorado has very liberal gun laws. There is actually a stuate that prohibits government bodies from keeping lists of gun owners. There is no registration requirement. The only obligation is a background check by stores.

What? I spend a lot of my waking hours in a big city. OK, would you buy "semi-slick suburbanite"?

post #78 of 83

tr!% TR15 you are way too sophisticated to pigeon hole with a label as simple as city slicker. I mean all someone has to do is spend the day with you on the slopes, tele skis, snowboard, teleboard with a lurk, playing your harp with the band apres, they don't make them like you anymore.

 

edit: and I mean that in the nicest way possible

It is also worth noting that many counties in Colorado are also very, very permissive about issuing concealed carry licenses to pretty much anybody who requests them.  I doubt many people ski with their piece, but I also know some do.  A Colorado police officer I used to know concealed carried a Glock 100% of the time that he was legally able. The first thing he would do walking out the door of the airport was open up his firearm lockbox and put his pistol back on him.

It wasn't that long ago that skiing wasn't cool and you never had to watch your skis. Who would steal a pair of GS race skis? Especially in Socal and Mammoth.

 

Now they're fat, shaped, have "cool" graphics and cost a small fortune. Definitely have to keep an eye out. And we should stone all thieves with iced up snowballs.

And before that snow boarding wasn't cool, and if you used race skis you needed to keep your eyes on them or they would vanish in a flash (I lost a pair of GS skis years ago, as did several of my friends).  Everything is cyclical (I just don't ever want to see bright pink and gold one-piece ski suits like we had as coaches in Whistler in the 80's).
