Bumper sticker?

I've been reading through the posts where people describe the vandalism that's happened to their Benz (here, and at benzworld.)

I own a Mercedes. I also own an HK. Perhaps I could use a transparent-backed HK bumper sticker of some sort to dissuade the lowlifes from touching my car? On the rear window? Something low profile... since I can envision the groans coming in from you all now.

Well?
J

And watch them crush your car with a baseball bat if they survive, and expect a hefty lawsuit from their family if you don't. They'll be sure to emphasize they weren't trying to steal your car, just checking to make sure it was locked for you, while ignoring their previous long history of GTAs.

I believe you're all correct. There's probably nothing I can do to protect my vehicle except park in the safest spots possible.

Besides, if you really want to do it all the way, you should bolt an empty rifle mount somewhere visible, leave a couple shotgun shells laying around the dash, and an empty Jack Daniels bottle in the cupholder. post a note on the window saying 'BRB, please don't ticket, trying to catch some vermin'.

Best idea yet, but add a dead rat strung from the shorty antenna for full effect!!

When I was younger and more stupid, I would occasionally put my pistol on the dash while driving. Also, when I was in the Air Force, I used a label maker to print an 'Exempt: Do not ticket' sticker, and adhered it to the back of my license. I never had an SP question that sticker.
