My advise: Buy a garage
When you not in your car put your trunk monkey up front
Don't park were I once lived
I came out one night to find two kids breaking into my wifes Maxima (a 1989) it was about a month after I had been shot in the leg (so I know my Glock works) anyway the sight of me and my Glock17 was enough to run them off.
Next day neighborhood kids came around when I was washing the Sube saying "I heard you tried to shoot someone" So just the threat was enough.
And no I wouldn't have shot the kids... Not!!! If they would have attacked your damn skippy....
