Wet equals miserable no matter what the temperature.

I have experienced the dry heat in Iraq,Kuwait and Saudi Arabia and the American Southwest. 
Stationed at Fort Irwin for a few years.  But when I arrived in lower Alabama in August, during my first p.t. run, I knew that was the most miserable heat of all! 
 

As far as Eotech the biggest concern I would have is the batteries failing from the heat or time. And also corrosion of the batteries if they fail. 
I had one that always seemed to have dead batteries when I wanted to shoot it and it was keep in ideal temperatures.

I once asked a co-worker who is a former Marine and was in Fallujah both times what was hotter. The 100+ dry heat in Iraq or the 90+ high humidity heat in the southern US. His answer.. Hot is Hot!

When I was in the Marine Corps, one of my duties was the base color guard. We had to do local veteran funerals that were typically in Palm Springs. One of those funerals was when it was around 120 degrees. During the grave-site service, the cemetery decided that it was time to water the grass all around us and thus shooting up the humidity way up high. By the time the service was over our uniforms were so soaked that the only dry spot was the very tips of the breast pocket flaps on our Creaton shirts.  I've never had that happen before. When I was stationed to Okinawa we dressed more appropriately for the heat and humidity.

How many times do I have to say it?  Every Police Officer I've ever asked has said the the overwhelming  majority of stolen gun reports they do have the firearm stolen out of a vehicle. Don't leave guns in vehicles!  🤬

Agreed!

If you can't "back pack it" it doesn't need to be left in the car. There are small-ish firearms in multiple flavors that will fit in small bags. If you feel you need to take something more than a pistol, don't leave it in the car. Suffer and pack the extra weight. 

 

This does not apply to farms or the like where you may need something for small or medium critters and you are setting fence posts or checking the perimeter or tending the fields....

Next time you talk to those Police Officers maybe ask them (1) were the majority of these stolen guns taken from unlocked cars? (2) how many guns remain in their patrol cars when they are not in the vehicle?

Id be willing to bet that if you asked them they would tell you that the 2nd most common place guns are stolen from are peoples homes.....would it make you feel better if we didn’t leave guns in our homes if we aren’t there?

How about we place the bulk of the blame where it should be, which is on the sh!theads stealing other people’s things.

As is often the case when someone makes a blanket decree as you did above, you fail to keep in mind that not everyone here lives in the same place or under the same circumstances. Maybe it’s not a good idea to keep a gun in a car where you live, but that’s not the case everywhere. I know several properties within a few miles of me that have guns in just about every vehicle and farm apparatus on their property, none of which have ever been locked, and none of their guns have ever been stolen. I also know a guy that left a gun case in plain sight on the back seat of his locked truck over in La Vergne a while back and somebody broke his window out in broad daylight to get it. While I do think in modern times it is advisable to take some reasonable precaution to keep it out of direct view, I won’t be condemning anyone for keeping firearms in their secured extension of their castle.

I don't know about police cars of today, but in the 90's the shotgun was in a locked steel carrier that you'd be pretty busy trying to open before the cop came back to the car.

You should check out some of the videos by the Lockpicking Lawyer. The ease with which those locks can generally be defeated with simple tools like a magnet or a particular shim should result in criminal liability for fraud on the part of the manufacturers.

Anything can be defeated with the proper tools, skill, and time. Really doesn't matter what it is.

In my neighborhood are two Police cars parked in the street in front of the officer’s homes. Both have overhead gun racks with ARs in them. I noticed what looked like a sling hanging down one morning and that’s what it was.

I read a lot lately about guns being stolen out of police cars.  I think as was said above, no one should keep a gun in a car.  Thats one of the reasons i hate our laws that allow the gun ban signs...kinda makes you leave the gun behind...
