Anti-theft Gun

a method of portable riches

In order to keep my possessions from being stolen from me, I sold them all. Then to keep my cash from being stolen, I spent it all on one gem-encrusted firearm. Now I only have one valuable item to keep track of. If someone tries to steal it from me, then surprise! I'm holding a gun, I'm naked, and I don't have anything else to lose.

Thieves will probably move on to easier targets.

       I'm just picturing you trying to go grocery-shopping after this.

       He can't. He has no money. All he can do is rob the store with his jewelled gun. Then the gun gets confiscated as evidence, he ends up penniless and in jail, and Big Eddie wants him to be his Special Friend .....

       A most excellent idea +

       Just add this to the list of situations where a single gem-encrusted firearm is the right answer.

       Reminds me of one of the funniest rap lyrics I've heard:   

       Now you wanna run around talkin bout guns like I ain’t got none
What you think I sold ’em all?!
  

       I don't think it was supposed to be funny of course, but kudos all the same.

       hehe, just the thought of seeing you armed...+

       Hand it over! (No dinero for gem-encrusted bullets.) :)

       Curses. You have found a flaw in my plan. Now come and get it. ::wink::

       Instead of gems, you could buy a nicer gun. But parading naked will result in the loss of it.

       I am reminded, strangely enough, of this old western that I read long ago in which a newspaperman goes around slapping the gunslingers around and generally making their life miserable and getting away with it - because he carries no gun.
