Actually about 75% of the targets HAVE been recovered and the thieves have been identified.  Meth Heads with absolutely no relation with our club.

The targets have been recovered, the men tried to sell the targets to Double Eagle Pawn in Deer Park, well they sold 3 to them. One of our club members Peter Stewart was out at Double Eagle and noticed the targets he asked a salesman where they got the targets, the salesman said he had just bought them. Peter saud, "well there stolen." Shortly after the Sheriffs Department contacted the theifs then 3/4 of the targets were recovered. Sorry it took so long to get back to ya'all, im txting this from my dads 60 th Birthday party and he just told me the scoop. Thats GOOD NEWS!

I saw a truck and trailer that said Baker construction on it on Thursday or Friday down on maple and fourth. The truck and trailer were full of targets. I was wondering if they had been recovered. Truck was heading towards the club.

That's great news. Gotta love the pawn shops that buy all this stolen stuff. You know they are aware of what is legit and whT is not.

Ya especially  when you sell 3 brand new targets for $250.00 and they cost $400.00 a piece, that should draw a red flag you would think. " Hey wana buy my $700 rifle for $150.00?" Lol What a joke. Atleast we can all enjoy them again. Brings a  :chuckle: to my face. Gotta love our Spokane Meth heads.

Fantastic news!  :tup:

I agree with the other comments about the pawn shops... I'm assuming they lose money anytime stolen items are recovered from their shops. Why wouldn't they do more to make sure items are legit  :dunno: I guess it's not that easy maybe.

My guess is they make more off of the stolen stuff than they lose off of the stolen stuff.  It sucks for the guy that got his stuff stolen for sure.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.
