    Being targeted for gun theft

    Passing word along.

    From a friend who belongs to a Denver gun club:

    Begin forwarded message:

    While I was in a Denver gun store today, my car was tagged on the wheel in
    the parking lot. The gangs do this on wheels or bumpers at gun stores,
    shooting ranges, gun shows etc. Later when you are parked at a restaurant,
    hotel, or other location that's less well guarded or not under video
    surveillance, other gang members spot the marker and break into the car for
    a quick gun grab. This is so RAMPANT in San Antonio where we were for a
    National shoot this summer, the police chief of that county came out to
    brief the 400 participants of our competition.
    Too bad three teams had already been victimized the first day. This is the
    first I've heard of this in Denver . Please pass this info along to your 2nd
    amendment list.

    This next comment from a Gunsite instructor:

    I don't know how widespread this is becoming , but the info regarding the
    NSCA Nationals in San Antonio is correct, as all of us who compete in
    sporting clays know. Competitors there were having their vehicles marked
    with a small adhesive dot on the rear license plate or rear bumper, then
    followed for miles and having their vehicles quickly and efficiently broken
    in to when parked for lunch etc.
    Some crews were working the parking lot at the Nationals itself. 27 high
    end shotguns were taken there recently. They know when 1400 shooters with
    high $$ competition guns are in town.
    BTW I shot with a young man who was trying out a new gun at the Nationals.
    He and his father lost all their guns and equipment while making a quick
    stop for lunch at a BBQ place in Corpus Christi the month before.

    Please be aware that other could target you because of your affiliation with
    the National Guard or a gun club or store.

    Thanks. It smelled fishy, but I couldn't figure out to hoax bust it. Ok, I probably could have, but I was busy. Ok, I was just being lazy and eager.

    I first saw this about a week or two ago and was just about to post it on another board when some email came in busting it.

    So I'm not innocent, just lucky

    If so, it's time to MODERATE this thread with a brief excerpt from the OP that doesn't detail what they're doing, followed by a moderator's reply entitled Hoax and the words "This is a hoax. Thread closed."

    And of course, a closure of the thread.

    On the other hand, if you want to keep this idea, which is actually a fairly sound tactic, up here for discussion of its pros and cons as a crime tactic...
