    How about a Clinton for President sticker as a great deterrent. Nobody would suspect there was a gun stored it your vehicle.

    Well, my truck (which is sadly still in Ohio) has a couple of Marine bumper stickers on it. It also has a gun rack, which does sometimes seem to make other drivers more courteous as noted before when it is full.

    On a side note, I used to reccomend to friends that had pick-ups to put a gun rack in their back window at college, even if they didn't have firearms for it. In an area that had very high rates of vehicle break ins, none of those trucks ever did despite the fact they pretty much all had aftermarket stereo stuff in them. Not a scientific study, but an interesting sidenote.

    I wouldn't put either of those bumper stickers on my truck though.

    So maybe I should get rid of this plate too?

    You'd be better off putting a Marine Corps sticker on the back of your car....

    Totally crass. Really. I would NEVER have either on my vehicle. Don't get me wrong, I have two NRA stickers (one Life Member & one Instructor), an IDPA sticker and an H&K (In a World Of Compromise...) sticker. I have a couple of incidents under my belt that seem to indicate that the presence of my stickers averted a predatory attack.

    But those above will tend to INVITE both an attack and intrusive behavior by the LEOs. Both probably rise to the level of "fighting words" that might be used by a crafty prosecutor to change your claim of self defense to one of vigilantism, or outright murder.

    Those are the kind of stickers that give ALL gun owners a bad name.

    My favorite Marine sticker (but not on my car)



    BG's and LEO have a lot in common, mainly their shared attention to little details. LEO have a keen eye for bumper stickers (to find BG's and build PC), BG's look out for them also (to find victims).

    I subscribe to the grey man theory and never advertise my LEO or carry status in any way at all. In fact it's all about urban camoflague and blending for me. No stickers, vests, 5.11 pants, fanny packs, hats, gun t-shirts, bright shirts, or loud clothing. I dress in natural colors and drive a silver car.

    I wouldn't use that either. Concealed means just that! You might as well hang the gun from your mirror!

    Like most I agree I am not a look at me bumper sticker fan
    That first one is offensive and anti gun to me
    THE OWNER / OPERATOR OF THIS VEHICLE IS LICENSED TO CARRY A CONCEALED WEAPON
    USE APPROPRIATE CAUTION
    Emphasis added by me. I have a gun so I am dangerous? A threat? Don't disagree with me, I might go off. Treat me special tip toe around me, fear me I may kill anyone at any time for any reason?
    What the hell is that supposed to mean?
    See now I am ticked, better duck.. jeeeze

    In this world, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.
    Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.
