I don't understand the peacocking of cars, vanity plates, and stickers - the sole exception being if your car is used as a business advertisement.

Otherwise I just think the owners are tools, idiots, or both.

Because when I read about someone 'bringing it' and getting in an altercation, I'm the guy who is thinking 'the best fight is the one you skillfully avoid due to preparedness and situational awareness', while I sit at home, un-injured with my family.


Agreed. In my younger life I had a very distinctive vehicle. The only year make model and color in town. Someone always knew where I was, used to hate hearing "hey, saw your car near ____ the other day, what had you over there?". I even got in trouble a few times once a nearly identical vehicle appeared in town, couldn't understand why people thought I was where I wasn't until I pulled up next to him at a light one day.

No stickers, nothing. Low profile.

There's nothing on my car.
I see no need nor benefit in providing people I don't know any information about myself.

The progressives around here are not only totally open to viewpoints they disagree with but also very respectful of the property rights of others.

No stickers.

I like stickers and have several of them on my vehicle..... on the inside of my truck bed which is covered by my bed cover. That way, I can open the cover when I'm camping or whatever and have it decorated how I please, without driving around everywhere advertising my preferences.

I don't do stickers. Not because I'm paranoid or striving to be "the gray man", but because I don't like the look.

The exception to this is the back window of my Tundra. I replaced my "FBHO" decal with a "MAGA" decal just to stick my finger in my sister-in-law's eye...

Call me the exception and I really don't care what other people think. I live in very Red (70% for Trump in my county)rural area but I visit Ann Arbor often. Never worried about someone vandalizing my vehicles.

My truck has NRA Benefactor member stickers in the upper corners of the rear window, a Who Is John Galt sticker at the top center, a Burning Man(wife and I are Burners) icon in the lower right corner and a pirate medic ems sticker in the lower left. Bumper is clean. My license plate is NRA LFR. That gets lots of comments.

My wife's truck has farming related stickers in her back window plus one of mine from when I ran for the state house. Bumper has a Real Women Don't Drink Light Beer sticker from New Glarus, a Who Is John Galt sticker and a Co-exist sticker with gun logos.

Strangely though I find myself trying to look Grey when I travel anymore. No firearms or training related t-shirts or polos, no 5.11's or other tacticool pants. If I'm someplace with other gun people or coming or going from a class that's one thing but heading to a destination, I try to look the part of the older middle class white guy.

Clean vehicles here. I see NRA stickers and such as an invitation to break in.

Only insignia I have on my vehicles is a Pittsburgh Penguins badge or front license plate.

Around here, all the bumper stickers are the far-left variety. Picture VW, Suburu's, Civics and Prius' covered in pithy statements and declarations. Then I started to travel around this great country and saw the other side...doing the same thing, Dirty Harry statements, NRA/2AM membership, flags all over the place.

Nope. Not gonna do it. Doesn't take much for somebody to walk-by and key your vehicle. I put on at least 3 yellow ribbon magnets during GWOT, each time were removed by someone else and found two of them torn-up nearby.

I don't do stickers. Definitely wouldn't do gun stickers. Invites smash and grabs or petty liberal trash who might vandalize my vehicle because they're fucking human garbage.

I have a MIA/POW sticker on the back glass of my truck.

Below that I have a white oval with "7.62"

Someone once asked me what it was about and I told her it was a quarter marathon,cause I didn't finish.

One of my former coworkers was a marine and she got it and started laughing and gave me a big hi five when she saw it

The only sticker on my truck is my NRA sticker on the back window. I put all my stickers on my gun safe.

I'm a solid NRA member, SF member and a gunner, but I like to fly under the radar. I don't need any unwarranted attention or to have someone trash my truck just because of sticker.

I have a small MD Shooters undercover shield (no words, no guns) on a magnet on the tailgate of my Jeep.

Nothing else.

Looking for a Confederate Flag plate to replace my thin blue line front tag. My last thin blue line tag was stolen.
