GLAD to hear you got your rig back. Most of us WILL be hit at some point - just the fact of having something nice.
The FIRST time mine was hit was in my driveway and....well let's just say gun play was involved. I kept my rig only having to replace my window and lost one of my pistols to the Sh!TTY Houston Police Department (DID I mention I now HATE Police?) for just over a year while they ballistics tested it......um ok. I was the one with the window knocked out of my rig and the gun play over the rig was in MY yard. The gun I shot with I purchased NEW.
The SECOND time they wanted the whole rig. My wife took it to work and the maintenance guy walked into the office and asked who owned the big black truck in the parking lot......yeah. They punched my door lock, tore all of my alarm wiring out (with every other wire they could grab), had it in neutral and were trying to hotwire it before scared off. The four of them jumped into their car and took off and my rig just rolled into the middle of the parking lot.
The lessons I have learned is EXPECT to get hit. Don't leave a DAMN thing in it for them. ESPECIALLY a gun. And if you do catch them in the act - even if you're in your yard and exchange gunfire - expect the sorry azz police to take YOUR gun for awhile. THAT DAY I lost ALL respect for "law enforcement." - oxymoron.
Good luck putting your rig back together.
