1) I shouldn't carry a gun in my vehicle. The chances of my getting hotheaded/roadraged and doing something stupid is (hopefully) remote, but certainly more likely than being attacked, and needing a gun, at least given my neighborhood and lifestyle.

2) I need to rethink putting a surveillance camera in my Jeep. If I do something stupid (see #1), I sure don't want to document it for the authorities. The father/son team would still be out hunting "burglars" if their buddy/accomplice wasn't a shutterbug. Hell,...they almost got away with it even with the video proof being with the police since day one.

Actually the video was released from THEIR lawyer in a feeble attempt to clear them. He said he didn't want people to assume it was some racist white guys with a confederate flag flying from the hitch hunting black guys.. go figure...

I lived most of my adult life in Evergreen. You live in God's Country, my friend.

I really don't see anything wrong with a large sticker on the back window with a clear message

My preference goes to Sig Sauer, but I do own a sweet S&W 627. Call me old school, but I do love a good wheel gun.
