    I had the muzzle brake on my first AK vanish. It was even pinned on. We looked downrange for it, but it was just gone. :laughing:

    I've lost the front sight off of a 1911. The older sights are pinned and are notorious for breaking off.

    I had a guy walk off with my spotting scope. I had a bunch of gear at the range that day and it was getting late. I had to make a couple of trips to the truck. I checked the bench and everything was cleared off of it, but when I got home I realized my spotting scope was gone. I think the guy who did it actually waved at me as I was leaving. Fortunately, it was a cheap scope.

    Fun y you bring this thread up. I had my glock out last weekend and the front sight was loose. I'll go pickup some blue loctite today.

    I know I've lost a few magazines at the range. Definitely one for my wife's 243 and one for my glock 48. Probably fell on the ground under the table.and I didn't notice until the next range trip.

    Blue is easy to break, don’t put red or you’ll have problems.

    243 is a blue loctite that requires heat to break and there’s red that does not need heat to break.

    For a lot of firearm applications, I prefer purple (222) since it’s designed to not shear the screw on removal.
