One of the members from another forum I run, posted this today. All please be aware.

TAGGING GUN OWNERS VEHICLES PSA WARNING
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.

An interesting and involved way to go about it. Here in WI many trucks have hunting type stickers in various places, very common. The last vehicle or 3 I've cut back on the NRA and gunowner type stickers.

I've heard about this around Detroit too. They would target vehicles with stickers outside 'gun free' zones, like a stadium. I seldom like to leave a gun in a vehicle, unless parked in a totally safe area. If one needs a food stop enroute I'll sit where I can watch the truck.

I was out prairie dogging in SD a few years ago. We got a hotel room in a seemingly safe, small town. I told my Son we better cart the guns into the room, I couldn't sleep anyway with them in the truck.
