I know Enterprise used to have those square, green, "e" stickers on all of their rental cars. They stopped doing that. (At least here in NYC). Our work-vehicle is a lemon. Everytime it breaks down, Supervisor goes to Enterprise. This year, I've gone to a different Enterprise location; twice.... No stickers.Dr. Snubnose wrote:Good thread topic David...Stickers IMHO are a big no no...I'll even go so far as to suggest when renting a car in another city or local you bring a razor blade with you so that after you pull off the lot you can scrap the rental agency sticker off the car, I know the car rental industry is going to dislike my suggestion....but being in a rental car makes you a big target for the criminal element.....Doc
Say now, where can I get one of those?Jimd wrote:I can tell you this: Since I placed a bumper sticker that reads, "God bless our troops - Especially our snipers" on my bumper, I rarely get tailgaters any more.
Yeah Paul! But you know what happens to paranoid people???????The Deacon wrote:I avoid them, for just the reasons you mentioned David. There are some areas where a bit of paranoia is a life skill and I think this is one of them.
I got mine from LaRue Tactical last week when I bought a set of scope rings for my new scope & rifle. In fact, LaRue sent me so many extra freebies that, when I added them all up, the freebies were actually worth as much as the rings I'd ordered! Great folks, they'll definitely get my business in the future!Monocrom wrote:Say now, where can I get one of those?
Well I sure hope not... my Dad's vehicles have sported a NRA life member sticker on them as long as I can remember (40+ years) and they don't seem to bug him at all. Out-of-state plates and holiday weekends (when they tend to go 'enforcement crazy') might have had something to do with it.The Mastiff wrote:It's not just the criminal element that reads stickers. A friend of mine heading back up to michigan from NC was stopped in Ohio for no apparent reason. The trooper noted the NRA sticker on the vehicle and asked if my friend minded him searching the vehicle for guns. My friend is in his 70's BTW. The sticker read "NRA Life Member"
No warnings for moving or equipment violations, just the "contact" looking for something that caught his eye.
If I'm not mistaken he would have been ok if he had a weapon in his trunk, unloaded. He didn't, but still refused permission. The trooper kept him there for awhile after the refusal to search, then allowed him to leave.
Probable cause sometimes varies from magistrate to magistrate IME. Is a NRA sticker probable cause in Ohio? Joe

As I've gotten older, I've learned to keep my opinions, hobbies, and interests to myself. After I get to know someone, then I may let them know more about me, as I feel it's appropriate for that relationship. For example, I don't tell clients that I am a knife collector and own guns when they walk into my office. If they bring up the issue, then I may be willing to discuss it.wescobts wrote:I was in the military for a while, and when we went into a foreign area ; I.E off shore, we would take off our rank, and as some of the elite forces shed there uniform so as not to stand out, a tad longer hair ( to look like students ) I find the sticker issue to be of the same thought process, blend in, don't cause attention.
Bumper stickers in general encourage tailgating — your logic is faulty.Jimd wrote:I can tell you this: Since I placed a bumper sticker that reads, "God bless our troops - Especially our snipers" on my bumper, I rarely get tailgaters any more.
