Seriously, you follow people to their house? I'm fairly sure if you tried that to me we would be having a conversation with the business end of a 12 gauge pointed at you... Anyone that is psycho enough to follow me home is probably on something and can't be reasoned with.

Yeah, pretty much. And in some states, following someone onto their property for the purpose of confronting them is a somewhat solid reason for justifiable homicide.

Seriously, if I'm watching you in my mirror and you follow me down my driveway, I won't be taking any chances.

If you live in a "stand your ground" state. I'm from MA and here you have to have a gun to your head before shooting and must make an attempt to flea even if on your own property.

Edit: Stand Your Ground is what kept Zimmerman (who killed Trayvon Martin) out of jail.

I've never had issues with Police or other drivers, granted I've only had my Subaru 2 weeks- but I've owned sports cars my whole life. Since I tinted the windows Police do tend to look at my car longer, but I drive the speed limit and don't act like an idiot so I'm left alone. Other drivers I just ignore. When I'm driving I zone out and enjoy the drive, not keep on the look out for Police and silly kids with exhaust systems.

Agreed this state is no fun! I carry a 1.5" auto-knife (because it's the biggest legal size), and when asked "any weapons in the vehicle" and I say "yup, a switchblade" you'd think I have a bomb in the car and when they realize it's legal I'm let go for the hassle of waiting for backup, them checking out the knife, etc...

CCP,in Gorgia. On the road I have a .45 M1911 and a Gerber Mark II. Follow me home and you will be staring down the 20" barrel of a Browning A5 12 ga.

By the way, if you come to my house, it is "Castle Doctrine" not "stand your ground".

Following someone home is excessive and just asking for trouble. Just pull up next to him at a red light and embarrass the hell out of the driver.

I don't really have any trouble from either one, I get mostly positive comments on the car from everyone. In around 2 and a half years I've only been pulled over once and didn't even get a warning. In all my other previous cars, 2 FCs and an FD, I was CONSTANTLY harassed by the local police department. This car is just as modified as the others, maybe slightly less loud smokey.

And I'm on the same page as most of the recent posters, if someone follows me to my house, they are doing so at their own risk.

I've got a white RHD

I might as well be waving a flag saying saying "Come and get me"

Any cop i see immediately points their radar gun at me and if I'm not speeding they then follow me and wait for me to do something wrong. Therefore I can't speed at all on the highway, get passed by tons of people and get followed at least once a week for about 5 minutes at a time of cops just waiting for me to do something wrong.

She said that tons of the high school kids there think that having lifted trucks is awesome. There was one time I was cruising around normally and some kid got his jimmies rustled because my WRX was louder than his POS lifted truck so he proceeded to floor it around me and nearly hit on-coming traffic. It's a pretty good estimate that most people with lifted trucks are missing certain chromosomes , especially because most of them never go off roading...

Well, if you live in TX, you can pretty much get away with anything gun related. Just ask Joe Horn how he got off for shooting two guys in the back after they finished burglarizing his neighbor's house and were no threat to him.

And no, SYG hasn't kept Zimmerman out of jail. He's been charged with a crime and still has yet to be tried on it.

The only drivers who have hassled me aren't even the stereotypical Honda brosephs, more the younger guys driving around in Porsche Panameras tailgating the **** out of me.
This is so true..

Edited to add that I did have the guns above until I sold them to a nice stranger for cash this weekend. Funny he left his photo ID in his other pants. Luckily I did not need to see it since it was a private sale.

taking a pretty big chance... I've turned down sales because they wouldn't let me copy ID's... There is no chance a gun leaves my place without it being reported stolen unless there is a solid verified paper trail, including signatures and copies of ID's. (both seller and buyer)

Other drivers only, and usually only kids trying to race. I haven't been pulled over in almost 10 years now, luckily I have a bit of a get out of jail free card. Its always funny when a younger guy comes flying up next to me and looks over and sees me in uniform.

I've learned that when confronted with an asshat driver, after they've done the "doucher maneuver" which usually accomplishes nothing. A simple facepalm and shaking of the head while looking at them feels good enough.

So much hostility on here... both other drivers and cops suck won’t change a thing bitching about it on the net.

As a gun owner and vet, its rather alarming to me that people would be so quick to jump to the application of deadly force on someone following them home. I understand being cautious but the extremes people are talking about here are beyond stupid.

I once thought someone looked at my wife out of the corner of his eye, so I beat him to death with a nearby chair. He thought he could get away in his wheelchair, but I SHOWED HIM WHATS UP.

That's probably because you drive like an asshat and consequently you have a reputation because of that with your local PD.

My car isn't quiet and is probably faster than most cars here and I've been pulled over exactly never in it. Y'all might want to take a look in the mirror and examine your driving habits and why you're getting as much attention as you are.[/quote]


You need to comprehend what you're reading. First of all you guessing your car is faster then most cars on here has nothing to do with getting pulled over. I've never gotten pulled over because of my driving, period. Asshat.
