So the only two cons I can think of are a. They will know 100% theft was committed and be able to easily have video of it and b. That store and possibly the chain is burned for good. The second one doesn't really bother me. The first doesn't really either considering I'll be wearing a mask and taking some effort to disguise myself. I've been trying to do a little research about emergency exit doors because I have seen some that have a 15 second delay. These are call delayed egress exits and they MUST be identified as such. So I feel its safe to assume that if its not labeled as a delayed exit then it will open immediately.

Does anyone have any experience doing this or any input?

I would think there are definitely use cases for this but without a doubt they would be extremely situational. As always, gotta way risk vs reward in context to different strategies.
Make a list of risks/rewards and try to weigh them. Do this for each plan of action. Burn paper!

Pretty positive, at least in my state, since one of the two agencies that oversee them is a Fire Marshall. I think they'd be risking some serious fines to not have one identified as such. I'm not opposed to going full drag to disguise myself either, I did it back in the spring and no body seemed to notice. As long as your route once you get out the door is vetted and you have someone competent driving.

I was hoping someone whose done it before would chime in with their experience.

And yeah I did consider testing the door first. Or having someone do it for me. Maybe offer a panhandler 5-10 bucks and then grab some stuff for them if I go through with it. Especially because there are a couple Academy that would be quick and easy to flee from.

Idk I'm just spit balling. I like going all out for a week or two then chillin for a bit.

Thanks, was hoping you'd weigh in. The more I think about it the less I feel like trying it. Main reason being that, like you said, having two others to help would be ideal and I only have one that I've worked with before and trust. Probably gonna put the idea on the back burner until I can work out a more solid plan because I feel confident I can pull it off with little risk as long as I dont rush things.

Done it many times. Just have an accomplice waiting for you in a car with no plate. Grab what you want , go out the door, jump in the car and bye bye. They won’t have you on camera unless they were suspicious of you to begin with or they have a camera pointed at that exit. Drive a mile or so and pull behind a building and put the plate back on.
