How many of you have decals on your car, like a Glock sticker, NRA sticker, etc. A friend had his car broken into several times when he had an NRA sticker on his car. He took the sticker off and no more break-ins.
I wanted to get an XD sticker and some other ones to add to my NRA sticker, but now I am not sure if it's a good idea. BTW, I am a female who lives in an apartment complex with just a carport to park under. My car is a Chevy Equinox. I never leave any of my guns or shooting gear in the car overnight. Your thoughts?

Gray Man here! No advertising on my vehicle!
Need a place for your decals? Put them on your gun cases or range gear.

put the stickers elsewhere, not your car.

No stickers on my HEMI at all!!!! No need to advertise.
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
When I was a kid back in the 1960s I thought an NRA decal was original equipment on a vehicle. I still keep one in the bottom corner of the rear window.
I'll never understand why people feel the need to advertise brand names that they happen to like. Nobody cares that you like your XD, or that I like my Sig or Joe down the street likes Glock. Why advertise for free and put yourself at risk?

Only sticker on my car is the American flag.

I learned the hard way when I had an NRA sticker on my cloth top Jeep. Although nothing was taken, I had to buy a new top. Why does NRA mail out those stickers anyway? I suppose it is to go on my gun box.

Nope, although I plan on putting another forum's sticker on my car . . . as it's only a couple of initials and meaningless to most sheeple.
I've been resisting the urge to put the NRA sticker on my car, I'd love to recruit more members but I don't want the wrong people thinking there may be guns in my car or home.

Without even thinking about the possibility of increased break-ins, I think MOST stickers on cars look tacky and stick out like a sore thumb so I would never put one on... EXCEPT, that is, my Ducks Unlimited duck head and that's only on my truck in the back window behind the drivers side headrest.

Nope. I don't have dealer names on my license plate covers, etc. either. Gun stickers and the like are only clues to the BGs that you might make a good target. And if I'm not getting paid to advertise by anyone, I'm not sporting their logos, etc. So take that, Nike!

Reminds me of when I was a kid a long long time ago. My dad would sometimes take us to the Wisconsin Dells. When leaving the parking lot, there was always a big black really sticky bumper sticker on every car that said " I visited the Wisconsin Dells." Nothing made my dad cuss more while he tried to scrape that sticker off with a razor blade.
