Bonus points for those references. Anyone who gets it isn’t who you need to worry about.I live in southern New Jersey,about 20 miles to a bridge to Philadelphia. I can not put a political, NRA or a 2nd amendment sticker on my car for fear of at least being keyed at worst being trashed. The only sticker my wife thinks we should put on car is "Who is John Galt ?" or " Rearden Metals ". If someone recognizes Reardon Metals that would be impressive.
I, currently, drive an 18-wheeler and we have a guy in the shop who looks 'rugged' with his longer hair and some tat's...but he's a dad gum whiz as a machinist...and he drives a beautiful lime-green Camaro and has a nice Harley...most people wouldn't approach him to speak with him, based on his appearance, but I've found him to be very knowledgeable and speaks very eloquently and pronounced! There's another guy in the shop, whom I've known for a few years, who's a great gun-guy to speak with!There are those that sorta look down on bikers and gun owners simply because they don't have good taste buds. Thumbs up for the ones who do.!!!
Truth to that...sticking the Ruger Logo on the back of a truck does not carry the same 'markings' as would a Glock or S&W sticker...and people recognize the Beretta and Sig Sauer tags more too! Note: I do not have any firearms stickers on any of my vehicles as I don't want to deal with a needless 'tagging' if someone out there disagrees with my choices! I also don't want to even advertise that I have one, be it on my person or in my vehicle!JMHO, if you put a Glock sticker (and I see tons of them), even libs will know what it means. Ruger’s logo and name may not have the same brand recognition other than from those who really know firearms.
beautiful ride sir. The V star 1300 discontinued in 2017, guess the sport tourers took over. I gotta have a cruiser for my short legs to touch groundIs the V-Star a 1300 now? I had a 2001 1100 I bought new that I used for work and had it dresser style too. I had a Softtail Classic before that and there was no comparison, the VStar was so much better. After I quit that job I decided to make it more custom. The HD was doing their anniversary bikes in the black over silver so I used that but separated them by small flames, and the black had ghosted in checkered flags that was only visible when the light hit just right. Geez I loved that bike, best one I ever had, and I had 36 bikes before I quit (including HD's). I spent a lot of time making that way too, but it was worth it! It was so smooth and fast. Here's a pic;

Your family has my deepest sympathy. We lost my 18yr old grandson in a handgun accident a year ago. My pain was terrible but nothing compared to my daughter's. It has made me concentrate a lot more on spending time with family.My signs too remind me of who and what I have become. My wife ignores some of my signs but we have become much closer after loosing our son in 2015 at 22yrs of age. The "Memorial Holiday" has taken on a much deeper frame of mind for us and we are moving on but not forgetting what we had and who we are!
This was my first thought at the mention of a sticker identifying a gun owner. I remember as a kid and even a young man most trucks had rear window gun racks with a great percentage sporting rifles or shotguns. Air conditioning was an option and fleet trucks came with 3 on the tree and no options which is what most people owned where I came from. So the only time the windows got rolled up was in warm weather, when it rained or the dust got to heavy from the car in front of you. This included parked in town or at home with the firearm in the truck. I remember many times running out to roll up the windows or draping a towel on the seat because I didn't.I really miss rear window gun racks.
Just saw this! Rick...So very sorry for your loss. I can't imagine losing a child.Some things sound so familiar in that post Nashoba Losa. Very similar with different venues and facts. My signs too remind me of who and what I have become. My wife ignores some of my signs but we have become much closer after loosing our son in 2015 at 22yrs of age. The "Memorial Holiday" has taken on a much deeper frame of mind for us and we are moving on but not forgetting what we had and who we are!
*Have a great day and keep your powder dry!
I really miss rear window gun racks. You just don’t see them anymore. Only $15 at Amazon to buy. Of coutse most rear windows are too dark tint ro be able to see the gun’s any longer.
Some well-meaning guy might think he’s doing you a favor by adding New Guinea next to LapuaI used to have NRA and Gun Club stickers on my rear window, as they peeled they were not replaced, .... except for a small one that only says "LAPUA". I figure that reference is obsure enough not to draw unwanted attention.
right on ... i'm not out in someones face with my stickers but I still like to show my support ...It's funny, this JUST happened to me today. Was pumping gas, and a guy approached me asking about Palmetto State Armory, and had I been there, what did I think.? I happen to be quite familiar with them, as I live close by, and gave him my thoughts.. but wondered "How did he know..?" Then I realized I have a PSA sticker AND FN sticker on the side of the vehicle right next to me as I pumped gas, Like you my fellow buckeye, I am cautious but subtle about the stickers and advertisement.
