    Not me but but my father got robbed today at gunpoint. Man this really sucks. He had just got his paycheck cashed and had it all it his pocket. Stopped at a store to purchase some money orders to send out bills and a guy came out from behind a dumpster, put a gun in his face and took all he had. My father works out of town construction and is currently in Ashboro, NC. Man my parents can't catch a break. Its been one thing after another for the last couple years.

    I hate to hear about stuff like this. At least he is OK. And here I was thinking just the other day that I might want to get a place out there, I really like the area.

    So sorry too hear about that. I know it's not much, but if you have a pay-pal account, I could spare a few bucks too try too help out. I know how hard it can be just too make the ends meet sometimes.

    Thanks guys for all the support and nice words. Dad's alright, mom's alittle depressed and upset but Dad's tough, he'll find a way to make it and put it behind him. I didn't post this on here to beg for money but if yall would like to, I guess I could take up a donation for them. Just put in the note something about parents. Man you guys are great and I'm sure they'll appriecate it. :bow:

    paypal would be mojo3@shtc.net

    Thanks again guys.

    Yes, he called the police. It only took them about an hour to get there. My father watched, still shakened by the gun to his head, as the robber escaped on foot behind the store and through the woods. He was on the phone with police at that time.

    That really sux. if anyone has never had a gun pointed at their face b4, they have no idea what that feels like and how demoralizing it is. The money isnt the issue, its how your pops is dealing with it. Some ppl feel less of a man cuz they dont fight back, it isnt always that easy and usually smarter to not. Someone could get hurt. The problem around here is, robbers are still hurting ppl after theyve been robbed. I dont plan to go down without a fight. Most everyone around here CCWs. Infact here is a billboard recently seen as you enter Florida, this is put on by the Anti-gun group Brady Campain, but its the best advertising us gunowners could ever have. lol.
