We are very proud of the fact that we are the oldest locksmiths Nottingham founded and still operating in the city. Originally the business was created as Lock & Safe Radford and operated out of a small workshop behind the family home on Radford Blvd in the heart of Nottingham. During this period of time Radford was a thriving working class area with a factory on every corner including famous sites like Players Cigarettes & Rayleigh Bicycles and the family business thrived providing and maintaining secure locks for factory gates and doors and safes and lock rooms for the workers wages to be stored and payed out from. In the late 1970's the business had out grown the humble workshop and a dedicated shop, workshop and warehouse was opened just down the blvd in Lenton in a purpose built modern unit. At this point in time the business had changed, the focus on safes and there maintenance and supply had now gone. Modern banking saw workers payed direct into bank accounts and not the beloved brown envelopes they used to collect in person and most of the factory's had now closed or had moved production out of the area so the name changed and become LS Locksmiths Nottingham to indicate we were more then just lock and safe people but that we encompassed the whole security side for both commercial and domestic customers during this time the Nottingham locksmiths were in the hands of two second generation locksmith brothers. With the advent of the internet the business saw the foresight of being able to offer products, services and even training online and LockSmart was born, in keeping with the original Nottingham locksmiths name the L & S stands out proud. LockSmart Locksmiths is LS Locksmiths just like it was once Lock & Key Radford always evolving but keeping one thing the same... we will always offer the customer the best service at the very best price that's why we've lasted so long and are the oldest locksmith Nottingham.

I would imagine that if anyone had, in the slightest, upset the family recently, he would have gone for a gun before approaching the door at that hour. If I argued with a crazy neighbor or someone had made a threat recently, or any type of upsetting altercation happened, and there was a late night knock, I would anticipate that person and be on guard. Or perhaps the wife or daughter had an issue they didn't tell Dad about. So one of the women hears the knock, and is filled with dread. But Dad being Dad is not expecting trouble, and is taken by surprise.

I’m wondering if perp knocked, Jim heard, started walking to the door to see who it was, perp could tell he was coming and shot through the door. Jim was down and the perp kicked the door in to gain entry and shot jim again. This had woken up jayme and her mom, who both ran into the bathroom to hide where there was a door with a lock and with the cell phone. The perp broke thru the door, saw the phone, killed Denise and grabbed jayme. 911 call you can hear only the fear/breathing/screaming/muffled before the perp hung it up and fled with jayme.
Remove the clamps. Scrape off any residual dried glue, using the side of the putty knife. Clean the mortise with the end of the putty knife. If it has become distorted, use a chisel to clean and cut the edges of the mortise so the striker plate fits into it as before, with the hole in the plate centered over the hole in the jamb. Screw on the striker plate.

I was thinking about timing too. But if mr closs heard a kick he certainly would head towards his firearms don’t you think? Or maybe to tell Jayme and Mrs. Closs to hide and then go towards the firearms all which could be done fairly quickly especially with the adrenaline of being scared. If i heard someone kicking at my door I would make sure I was armed before going to investigate. The only reason I can think of that he would head towards the door is if he knew who was there, or was already near the front door trying to get them to leave. Him being shot near the front door with no firearm, no evidence (that has been shared yet at least) that he was trying to get to his guns is very strange.
A lot of people don't keep their guns accessible. Especially if they have children in the house. Some people keep them locked up or unloaded. They don't think about it that if someone breaks in, they may only have seconds to get to their gun and load it if needed. Those people won't be able to do that before the intruder can get to them. Just having a gun in the house is not enough. You have to be able to get to it before they get to you. If you want, time how long it would take you to open your front door and then run into the hallway of your house or even the bedroom. That is how long the Closs' had to react to somebody breaching their door. Very likely when that door was breached, any gun he kept in the house that wasn't within reach of him was of no use to him at all.
If you’ve had an accident late at night, we won’t be able to replace your glass immediately. In this case, we will board up your window with plywood boards to maintain security, and arrange for the glass to be fitted once it is available. We operate a 24-hour rapid-response Nottinghamshire boarding-up service, to give you peace of mind when you need it most. We can also board-up large Nottinghamshire commercial premises when the owner has vacated the building, or is in the process of a large-scale refurbishment, where the building needs to be protected against squatters and other intruders. All boarding-up jobs in Nottinghamshire and the local area include a free quote on replacement glass if required.
We don't know what the situation was in that house or what the situation was with their guns. The mother and daughter might have had some familiarity with guns but that doesn't mean they would know what to do in a panic situation. Guns are something that have to be almost an automatic conditioned response for someone to be really comfortable using them in an emergency. That takes many hours at the range. Preferably hundreds of hours of shooting. At least dozens of hours. Most women aren't that interested in them to put in that kind of time with them. Frankly they bore me and I go to the range because my SO drags me there and makes me practice sometimes.
In the event of a burglary or vandalism it's extremely common for windows to become a target, in most cases getting smashed or become shattered from an attempt, this is usually the case for commercial premises whether it be a large retail store on the high street or small business premises, though it's certainly not uncommon for a residential property to also experience the same. These type of incidents tend to happen out of hours during the night, it's advised to get the window boarded up by a professional as soon as possible to prevent access to the premises through the broken window, once the window has been boarded up professionally this will allow peace of mind until it can be arranged to replace the glass pane and repair any further damage caused in the incident.
