    Do you have a personalized license plate related to guns? I was over in Lynchburg on business and saw one that said "GOTGUN". I think that said more than any sticker or membership card could.

    VCDL plates come out nest year...



    VCDL License Plates Postponed Until Next Year!!!

    Getting VCDL license plates approved has been a royal pain due to twists and turns in the law and how the Transportation Committee processes such requests.

    It turns out that contrary to our understanding from DMV, we should have gotten signed applications and checks for the plates before the bill came up.

    So, we will ask everyone who wants a plate to send us the signed application with a check in the October, November timeframe this year. Those who have signed up on our web page will get an email when the time comes.

    Carry On.

    There is an LEO here at VCU who has "SIG9MM" on his POV's plates. Pretty awesome.

    Mine says

    "LIF NRA"

    I always get a real kick out of it when a tailgater figures out what it says. They immediately backk off my bumper.
    "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms..disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one." - Thomas Jefferson quoting Cesare Beccaria, Criminologist in 1764.

    My truck says "I (Heart) TW1NS"

    Makes precious little sense on my Suburban. Made plenty of sense on my twin turbo RX-7.

    Me and the little lady have "4 VT 16" on our Camaro, on a Virginia Tech tag. My professor and 4 T.A.'s were killed...seemed fitting to get that plate since we bought the car shortly thereafter.

    I drive my sister's car more than either of those two cars mentioned above...it says A-GAIL (Abigail)...she also has big pink Hokie Girl stickers as well as VT Sister. Feel like a man's man driving that little Honda around with all that masculinity oozing out of it




    If the VCDL plate goes through, will there be a motorcycle version? I know the SCV have a full size and the tiny bike plate.

    I'm sure you've been asked this before, but I'll ask it again: what does Yata hey mean? Google isn't much help.

    It's Lacota Souix - "it's a great day to die" literally.
    Very similar in many Native American dialects.

    Used both as a war cry and and everyday greeting and salutation like "hi" or "have a nice day."

    If you were able to choose between an extrememly bad day and a really great day, which would you select as your last day? Most would select the really good day. So through this convoluted process a great day to die is also a great day to live.

    Much of the final meaning depends on the listener and the tone of voice in which it is delivered.

    Well there goes another topic that has been hijacked. I was hoping for gun related vanity license plates, particularly the one you did not have to give much thought about.

    I still think GOTGUN says it all.

    Well then, I guess to bring us back towards Kenny'sintent of the post...

    Those of you with some kind of plate that identifies you as a gun owner (or having NRA / VCDL stickers or whatever on your vehicle), do you worry that some **** will target your vehicle for abreak in, with the hopes of stealing your firearm?

    No, I'm not. I drive an older vehicle (2001) with an NRA plate that says AMCIT. It will be replaced with a VCDL plate as soon as they're available.

    I have bumper stickers to go along with it. In the rear window:

    I AM THE GUN LOBBY

    My idea of "help from above" is a sniper on the roof

    and

    EITHER WAY, WE'RE F***ED '08



    Never been worried about someone breaking in. The vehicle is a jeep, so almost everything in it is visible. I don't leave the gun in it, usually. If it is, it's locked in my center-of-mass safe, so it has at least some protection.

    I'm not worried about being specifically targeted. Most people have no idea what WEC SOG stands for.

    My buddy lived in an apartment complex in Charlotte, NC that had a rash of vehicle break-in's two years ago. Common thread: NRA, Browning, SIG, Springfield...every vehicle that got broken into had a gun related sticker and no other vehicles were touched.

    So it does happen...

    I use to see a truck in Colonial Heights about 15 years ago with personal plates that read something like -- PACN LED ...or something like that (packing lead)
