I agree. Returned in the morning to my car with hidden switch to coil several decades ago in, found vent window broken, door unlocked and wires ripped from ignition switch. After fixing wiring engine would not turnover. Removed and disassembled starter. Armature burned up from excessive cranking. $36 for a new starter and $10 for a new vent glass and was on my way.

I rarely go to car shows any more - too many cliques and "reserved" parking. The few shows I do go to have large enough attendance that a few shouts would bring enough help from other owners to stop any potential thief.

I don't take my car to stores to go shopping so parking lots aren't even a question for consideration.

I occasionally do go to one or two restaurants with my car. I choose a spot visible to the windows so I can keep an eye on it. I park head in to the parking spot with the windows up and the doors locked. The steering wheel is turned full right or left and with a Club attached. These measures make it MUCH harder to drag it out with a tow truck or rollback. I also have a hidden kill switch that will prevent starting it.

The car is never out of my direct control except when my mechanic has it at his garage. If it's there overnight it's parked inside.

If I did see someone messing with the car I would confront him but not physically. I'd take a quick couple of cell phone pictures of him and if he persisted in attempting to start the car I would call the police.

The car is insured for the value of what I paid plus almost all of what I've put into it. If it goes missing I'll be made whole. It's only a car, not a family member.

I have a CCP but I do not carry. Any sensible gun owner knows that you NEVER pull a gun on someone unless it's your intention to shoot him, and you do not shoot to wound, you shoot to kill. The idea that killing someone who is stealing a car is simply insane. And simply pointing a gun at someone can put you into a world of trouble that could last years.


Sledgehammer, If you carry and confront a thug who is packing and trying to get into your car, what do YOU do? And what di you think the outcome would be?
I don't know what would happen. I do know that even if you don't go where the thugs go, that they do come to you. Believing that you are safe because you don't go to the bad sides of town is naive. The last place I lived, a very upscale neighborhood in a very well protected town, our neighbor was followed home from her nail salon, jumped in the garage, tied up, beaten and bludgeoned and robbed.


So if I do get in a situation where the thug came to me and was trying to steal my car and when I confronted him/her and they pulled a gun or started assaulting me, I hope I was able to defend myself.
In that situation where I thought my car was being stolen, I wouldn't run up to that person with guns blazing, hopefully when confronted they would run off. But in Houston Texas and probably most big cities Thugs have learned that the authorities are overwhelmed and they are in control. They know when seconds count the Police are only minutes away. Lets pray it doesn't happen to any of us.

Anyway, I don't see a gun as a good anti theft device, your car could be gone without you ever seeing it being taken.
If I ever get to take an overnight trip I am thinking of getting one of these:

Default works for me

I have three thieve discouraging devices. Everything is simply to slow these people down. First a Peddle Jack, locks on the break peddle.
(very discouraging) Second, a lock that goes around the steering wheel (horn ring and middle spoke) Third a club on the outside spokes... The club in seconds can be by-passed by a quick cut to the steering wheel. the break lock can be by-passed by another cut through the steering wheel and horn ring. (if the battery is not disconnected, the horn blows) The peddle Jack is still on the break peddle, and pretty hard to remove. maybe by then I'll notice something is going on. I've people look and say "what is that mess?" Works so far.
