Tagging a Gun Owner's Vehicle
If you own a gun and therefore go to gun ranges or gun shops, you might want to read the attached and keep this in mind…..and share the word with your friends/family.


Gun lovers public service announcement: While I was in
a Texas gun store today, my car was tagged on the wheel in the parking lot. The
gangs do this on wheels or bumpers at gun stores, shooting ranges, gun shows
etc. Later when you are parked at a restaurant, hotel, or other location that’s
less well guarded or under video surveillance, other gang members spot the
marker and break into the car for a quick gun grab. This is so RAMPANT in San
Antonio where we were for a National shoot this summer, the Sheriff of Bexar
County came out to brief the 400 participants of our competition. Too bad three
teams had already been victimized the first day. This is the first I’ve heard of
this in Texas.

Please pass this info along to your 2nd amendment list.
Daily check your car, truck or motor home for unusual painted dots, marks, check
marks or other strange looking symbols that are not
normal to your type
vehicle. It could prevent you from being a victim of robbery, or even save your
life if you catch the thief in the act.

This next comment from a Gun Site instructor:

I don’t know how widespread this is becoming, but the
info regarding the NSCA Nationals in San Antonio is correct, as all of us who
compete in sporting clays know. Competitors there were
having their vehicles
marked with a small adhesive dot on the rear license plate or rear bumper, then
followed for miles and having their vehicles quickly and efficiently broken in
to when parked for lunch etc.

Some crews were working the parking lot at
the Nationals itself. 27 high end shotguns were taken there recently. They know
when 1400 shooters with high $$ competition guns are in town.

BTW I shot
with a young man who was trying out a new gun at the Nationals. He and his
father lost all their guns and equipment while making a quick stop for lunch at
a BBQ place in Corpus
Christi the month before.
