storage areas have every inch of their property covered by cameras. 

if I was ever approched the robber would have a very "shocking" experience.

So do banks, yet they still get robbed.

So many facilities accept credit cards now there is no need for me to take a load of cash to auctions anymore and I actually seek out the auctions that accept cards and avoid cash only auctions.

I know for a fact that many auction goers carry a gun. Someone would be stupid to try to rob from that crowd! There's no way he could keep an eye on everyone. As soon as he pulled his gun out, he would have at least 10 aimed straight at him. Sure, he could get off a few shots, but a) he's not getting any money, and b) he won't make it out alive.

^^^ Something to consider. Let's say you bring a big wad of cash with you and you're smart enough not to flaunt it. A sweet locker opens and you bid it sky high, but someone else bids a bit higher. Now the crowd knows you're loaded, but didn't spend it. Watch you're rear view mirror on the way home or go strait to the bank and make a deposit.

I've thought about the robbery thing too.   There was a short stint here where guys were holding up estate sales late afternoon.  Knew there was a couple grand between estate company and peoples wallets.

Starting thinking auctions might be unsafe.   20-40 actual bidders.   Each has $500-$1000, some much more.

But then I thought it would be rough.   Indoors and the hall is packed.  Outside and the crowd is spread out.   There isn't any control. 



I started looking closely at the crowd too.   Hadn't been a single auction that I haven't been able to see at LEAST one guy with concealed firearm.

Most people aren't aware of how many others around them are armed. My 60 year old mother carries a .45. My 87 year old grandfather carries as well. According to a recent study, 11,113,013 or 4.8% of the U.S. population currently holds a concealed carry permit. 1.28 million permits have been issued in the state of Florida alone...and those are just the numbers for people who carry legally.
