    Not bizarre and pretty easy to understand if you live here. It truly is the land of Fruits and Nuts. I've been trying to get them to put that on the license plates for decades. After all, we do grow Dates and Almonds; Ha Ha.

    Don’t sell the jeep! That’s crazy talk. Now what you need to do is buy a glock or brand of your choice and have one in the chamber ready to rock n roll.

    Just make sure you can articulate the situation and that you felt your life was threatened :devil:. Which shouldn’t be too hard considering what that dumbass did. BB gun or not..if it looks like a pistol and it’s pointed at me..game on.

    Don't police departments deal with this more effectively than user forums.
    Maybe he was shooting at you and not the Jeep.
    Ever see the gas station scene in The Jerk?

    So first off I am very sorry to hear you’re having issues in your community.

    Maybe I missed it, but why would you have to sell the Jeep?

    I think you should sell your home and move as it sounds like it’s the community and not the Jeep.

    BB guns don’t scare me, so I likely would have got out and made him eat it.

    I got plenty of firearms but by law they need to stay at home or unloaded and locked away in the trunk (California). CCWs aren't often granted here.

    I have a very low expectation of them finding the guy. They had paper plates on so they'd have to catch them in the act. I figured I'd post here as a precautionary measure for those in my area. In case the guy really is targeting Jeeps. That and I'm rather proud that my JLUR took 2 pellets to the face and not even a scratch.

    I learned that lesson when a guy was tailgating me with my wife and baby in the car, I pulled over and hopped out thinking I would just give him a beat down, then I realized I had my gun on me and had to act like the world's biggest wimp to get out of the situation.

    If the police would have arrived and I would have beat him down with a gun in my possession it would have been serious time.

    I was much younger then, now I would just pull over and let him go whether or not I had a gun on me.

    We live in a good part of San Jose and I've never encountered anything like this. I'm not afraid of the BB gun itself per se, but what if he does it again while my kid is in the car and maybe this time, the window shatters and injures her? What if he starts using a real gun? Just playing different scenarios out in my head. I probably won't sell the vehicle and since I actually like driving the JLUR, the thought of sell has not come across my mind yet until now. If I do see them again and they pull something like this, I'm definitely going to drive over their car.

    Even with paper plates it would be pretty easy for Law Enforcement to figure out the owner of the car especially with the dealer known. Add to it the make, model, and rough year makes it even easier. This is assuming the paper plates are real.

    Aftermarket parts that all come with the Cali warning that they contain materials that could cause cancer.

    I've eaten foods with the prop 65 label. I think some McDonalds have them on their drive through window.

    So weird. Wondering what were you doing that he/she were able to go by you twice. I expect it must have taken you a while to actually process what happened.
