Just a thought, don't put anything in your car you would mind if it was taken. (Like expensive knives and flashlights, ect.) That way if your car is broken into or stolen you only have to worry about the car, not trying to make a list of what was in it. The most expensive thing I keep in my car is a Benchmade rescue hook and a S&W 1St. Response knife (the one with the window punch built in). Both cost me less then $40.00, the rescue hook I think I even got for under $30.

Also, if you can try to keep things out of plain view. I keep my survival stuff and some tools in a backpack under the seat, I keep my big maglight under the seat, I keep the fire extinguisher under a seat. You look into my car all you see is a blanket, a roll of rags, and a bandana hanging from the rearview. <img src="/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

Brian,

Does the Extractor work on the Rabid Butterfly spit?

I agree completely. While I try to maintain a certain quality level of gear, I also don't want to keep $200 knives in our cars. In the wife's car the most expensive thing is a SOG Paratool but it cost $0 since it was a gift given to me years ago. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Im my car the most exoensive thing is the Magellan Meridian Color Handheld GPS (which I would certainly claim on insurance after a break in). The next most expensive item is $40 LM Juice KF4 and a $20 Buck Diamondback fixed blade. I keep all my gear under the back seat as well. Most if in a black backpack although that have some rope, ratchet straps, jumper cables and a fire extingtuisher under the seat outside of the bag. Tools, a large maglite flashlight the GPS and the rest of my non-bagged stuff resides in my enormous center console. In the wifes car everything is in a plastic tackle/tool box type box and she moves it around all over the place within the car.
