Default Thieves

My neighbor drove up on some guys in my car. He said they took off when he pulled up. I'm so tired of theives. The only thing in that car that is visable is the gauges and a radio. They probably couldn't get much for any of it.

I'm going to hook the alarm back up!
I'd probably just get bullet or buckshot holes in the car. I'd be better off replacing the radio.

Atleast we have good gun laws in texas.

No removable faceplate on the radio?

I'm either going to move toward Lewisville/Carolton, or North Dallas.

Nice snug fit car cover with a cable lock at the bottom is better than nothing.

people keep referring to gun laws, and I love guns, but wtf does that have anything to do with it? what good will a gun be to you if your car got stolen, and you will most likely never see the guys that did it...

I'm pretty sure you can shoot someone for trying to steal property in TX...

no I get that, but thats just going into "what if's"....the thieves were never seen by anyone, nor was there any comfrontation. a gun is useless in a situation like this, unless you wanna shoot yourself.

I caught a white tow truck backing up to my 1957 Arkansas traveler V-bottom. My dad gave it to me right before he died. I ran out there with my Labrador and a jack handle. The guy dumped the clutch and took off.
Most of the time, you'll never seen them. But when you do, You can make it count.
I moved from there the next month.
