    ALERT!!!

    Just got this from a friend......

    "Subject: FW: GUN OWNERS - GUN SHOWS SHOOTERS INFO
    Mighty interesting. Forwarded from one of my Sheriff friends.
    While I was in a Denver 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 not 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 police chief of that 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 Denver . Please pass this info along to your 2nd amendment list.
    This next comment from a Gunsite 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.
    be aware that other could target you because of your affiliation with the National Guard or a gun clubPlease or store."


    I have not been a victim myself, but it makes sense that snallygastards would think of this.

    good idea to walk past & around your car rather than 'click' it open from a distance.

    you get to see if anyone is scrunched down between vehicles and see if anyone scraped or 'taged' you.

    They need to set up decoy cars and have snipers at the ready...at least have teams ready to take them down.
    Seems like a great way to get a handle on this crap.

    I would only park where I could 'view' my car while I ate lunch.

    Even though I am not from TX, I now check my car for any unusual markings everytime I go to some gun shop/shooting range. It may happen in TX but it can be a trend all over the country many years from now so it is best to keep ahead of the game. It also pays not to have any gun/gun organization/shooting range/tactical company (ie Blackhawk) affiliated stickers taped to your vehicle, as I have never done on my car. Save those stickers for your safe and carry cases instead.

    It's never too late, except in the NFL. I thought we learned that on the playground.
