    Hey guys and gals, I don't know how acurate this is but I thought I would pass this along for a little heads up. I just copied and paste from my email I received.

    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 you 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.

    Not intended to give the d-bags credit but that's pretty clever.

    Thanks for posting this, will keep an eye out from now on.

    Gotta wonder if they put half that thought into legal activities, how well would they be doing.

    Sounds like the mountable vehicle gunsafe business in Texas is in for a boom.

    Been posted before. Reaks of urban legend like the "driving with out headlights gang initiation" BS from a few years ago.

    I do have a cousin who's best friend's mother' ex-boyfriend's neighbor's dog reported "tagging" of tires by canine companions is all the rage so the male dogs can find your house and rape your dog.
