Nope !

I'm not into the whole "Stickers on Bumpers" thing.. Just me. :)

Besides, with all the mud that gets tossed all over my Taco, you couldn't see it anyways.. :D

January 3, 2003, 11:52 PM
I "fly my colors" on my rear bumper -- Ford F-150, natch!.

More than once, I've been tailgated and, as the tailgater gets close enough to see the NRA logo, they back off! I also have GOA and NRA on my front porch windows. I don't feel I have to hide the fact that I'm into guns!:rolleyes:

No, both are stealth mobiles.


January 3, 2003, 11:54 PM
No, but due to I really don't like stickers on my vehicle, not that I have anything to hide.

January 3, 2003, 11:58 PM
I have a NRA and a Ruger stick on my back window of my truck.

Also got the bullit hole stickers.:neener:

I don't actually own a bumper, so does a head-sticker count!?


January 4, 2003, 12:31 AM
No decal, but I have an NRA license plate on the front bumper.

No stickers. Got an American flag on the dash. It covers the Vin #.

January 4, 2003, 12:45 AM
I live in the city and its not a good idea to advertise that you own firearms, makes you too much of a target. But such is life. :(

I don't put stickers of any kind on my car. I do, however, proudly proclaim I am a member of the NRA!

I have a small NRA decal on the driver side rear quarter window of my black 1993 Saturn. I do not like permanent stickers and the NRA logo is held on by static.

I have thought about an ICORE sticker, S&W sticker and a Ruger sticker, but do not have them.

I have also thought about something like "I <heart or Rolling Stones lip logo) my 12 GA".

I live in Pelosi territory just 'down the street' from Tauscher's place.

January 4, 2003, 01:03 AM
I used to have, until there was a rash of thefts of guns from cars in my area. The police eventually nailed the guys who were responsible, and they confessed that they deliberately looked for vehicles displaying NRA, GOA, etc. identification, reasoning that they were more likely to find guns in such vehicles. (They were right!) Even though many such vehicles did not contain guns, they broke into them regardless, and did a lot of damage (over 100 vehicles in all, with about 15 firearms stolen). From that time onward, I haven't displayed any NRA or other RKBA organization's stickers on my vehicle. (I do, however, have a rifle rack in the rear window from time to time! :D )

January 4, 2003, 01:15 AM
nra sticker on the bumper of my truck.
nra sticker on wife's car.
hornady light magnum sticker on my welding helmet.

never had a problem, never expect to.

January 4, 2003, 01:16 AM
Yes. I have one of the small round ones in the front window and one on the canopy rear window.

January 4, 2003, 01:25 AM
Yep, have an NRA sticker and an AFR heads sticker on the rear window of my cab.

Mike Irwin
January 4, 2003, 01:34 AM
In fact, it's the ONLY sticker on my car.

NRA Life Member.

My old car sported stickers for the 2000 election, Bush - Cheney and my personal favorite, "I wish I lived in New York so I could vote against Hillary."

January 4, 2003, 01:50 AM
No. We also had, and are going through a rash of smash and grab here. Only stickers I have are those required for school--and those are going to be changed to hang tags. Reason follows.

Sidenote: at my insistence, and an event We no longer use parking stickers for our complex...neighbor(female) stalked and followed home. Understand this also has become a problem, corp stickers, school stickers...etc.

January 4, 2003, 05:30 AM
Living in the Big City it is not good to advertise, so no bumper stickers of firearms. I do have an AMERICAN FLAG on the dash.

Besides, if I put a bumper sticker on the Jeep, my wife would be seriously upset!!!!!

January 4, 2003, 05:34 AM
No, trying to keep a low profile due to the upcoming fireworks. They call it "Force Protection" now.

January 4, 2003, 05:50 AM
Sold my 4X4 two years ago with 18 NRA and/or Pro Gun stickers on it. Only three on my Taurus. The American Flag, Springfield Armory, and NRA Instructor. :cool:
The thing I don't understand, I get thumbs up or shaking fists from other motorists, but I haven't gotten a second glance from LE types. :neener:

January 4, 2003, 06:40 AM
Yes. The round window stickers adorn all my vehicles.

Long Hunter
January 4, 2003, 07:19 AM
I don't have any gun related stickers on my vehicles or house.

Don't want to advertise there may be guns in my vehicle or home.

All I fly on my home and car is the American flag.

I have them all over my gun cases though.

Long Hunter

January 4, 2003, 07:55 AM
NRA sticker on the back window of my station wagon with my EMT sticker on the opposite side.

NRA Certified Instructor sticker on the back window of my mini van on one side and the star of life on the opposite side. Both round stickers

Front door of my house has the NRA round sticker with the NRA Certified Instructor round sticker above it. I want those that come to my house to cause hate and discontent to know what they are in for!:cool:

January 4, 2003, 08:03 AM
Sure do. I've got two of 'em in my rear window. I really do like to pass people who have algore and other lib stickers and drive in front of them. :evil:

No, but I have a "Molon Labe" sticker on the back window of my truck. I was sitting behing another pickup truck at a light the other day which had an NRA sticker on the back window. Someone had obviously tried to peel if off. Messing with someone's truck is kinda dangerous around here, too.


January 4, 2003, 09:39 AM
Its above my "My other car is an Abrams Tank" sticker.

Robert Farrar

Mine is on the rear window of the Blue Beast ('74 Merc. Comet :-),
along with right & left Stars & Stripes on the bumper.


January 4, 2003, 09:44 AM
I'd LOVE to put one on the minivan, but I won't for the same reason as many others have already stated...theft.

2nd Amendment
January 4, 2003, 09:47 AM
Yep, I've got one.

January 4, 2003, 09:49 AM
No for two reasons:

--I'm a peddler and peddlers don't wave flags.

--While its politically incorrect to racially profile badguys like Islamofascist terrorists, it is perfectly PC to politicallly profile gun owners. Remember Janet "The Torch" Reno's FIB put out a profile of your typical angry white-guy and that profile contained NRA stickers.

There is plenty of opportunity to get into trouble, no sense looking for it.

January 4, 2003, 10:06 AM

January 4, 2003, 10:18 AM
Too many LEOs here in Nazi Jersey think the sticker is probable cause for a stop and hassle.

January 4, 2003, 10:21 AM
NO, but I do have an H&K sticker..:) I think only LEO's know what that means however...


January 4, 2003, 10:59 AM
I drive my car into NYC at least once a week and I often park on the street in marginal and marginal-to-bad neighborhoods. I have not had a problem yet from the street elements or the police. The sticker has been on my car for well over a year now.

There's a guy who works at the Department of Sanitation (the garbage folk) garage a few blocks away from where my parents live. He drives a Nissan Pathfinder with a NRA spare tire cover on the rear of his SUV. It's been there for at least a few years (I never noticed it until after I joined) and I'm pretty certain he has not had any problems either.


January 4, 2003, 11:15 AM
No. I also don't like putting stickers on my vehicles either. I do have my NRA Life Memeber sticker pinned up on my cubicle at work. I also have a Glock sticker. I always am suprised at how many of my co-workers and visiting customers enjoy talking about firearms when they notice them.


January 4, 2003, 11:31 AM
No for the same reason as 2dogs. I live in a college town and have better things to do then take my vandalized vehicle in for repairs every other week (which says A LOT about liberal inclusiveness, or lack thereof).

I do have an NRA sticker, flag and mousepad conspicuously displayed in my office, which working for the Fed Gov could probably get me in trouble, except that the Chief of my line office is also an NRA member and nobody wants to ruffle his feathers.:D

January 4, 2003, 11:46 AM
Sure do on my rear window just above my AMD Athlon sticker. Lets everyone know this geek has guns :D

Brian Maffei
January 4, 2003, 12:31 PM
Yep, NRA and "Don't Tread on Me" adorn my rear window. I'll see the occasional NRA sticker, but not before the multitude of UN, "Che," and/or Berkley radio stickers.:scrutiny:

Had one on my bronco rear window so I could lower it when I crossed into Canada, they don't much like us at the border crossing, then raise it when I hit the US border, they were friendly towards us "gun nuts".

January 4, 2003, 02:47 PM
I have nothing on my car, as I work at a college, and just don't want my car to become the object of campus police interest. The NRA pin adorns my lapel daily, however, in and out of the classroom. I also bring old copies of firearm magazines (with mailing label removed) into the faculty dining room and leave them on the magazine rack, just to antagonize the liberal-socialist pukes that I must associate with.

I'm retiring in about a year & moving to Texas; the decals go on as I leave town.

January 4, 2003, 03:11 PM

I waited a long time til I could afford an NRA life membership and I'm quite proud of it. It's in the rear window right next to the Sportsmans Alliance of Maine life member sticker.

January 4, 2003, 03:25 PM
I try to maintain the stealth approach. Only my close friends know that I like to shoot (I have taken several of them to the range).

I keep one of the Endowment member versions of the round NRA window sticker on the inside of the right side of the windshield of my Trailblazer. Driving a SUV with the NRA sticker shows I am politically incorrect and I like to fly my colors! Odessa

January 4, 2003, 03:47 PM
I'm an NRA member but no sticker on the car. Don't want added attention. Just like, I don't put USGA stickers on my car either. Thieves might think there are golf clubs in the trunk.


Dave Markowitz
January 4, 2003, 03:52 PM
I have my NRA and GOA stickers in my windows, a front NRA license plate, and my Linuxgruven sticker on my rear bumper.

One more geek with guns. :D

January 4, 2003, 04:04 PM

January 4, 2003, 04:21 PM
On the rear window of my Explorer and on the front door of my house. I have also had tailgaters back off as someone else noted earlier.

January 4, 2003, 04:45 PM
I'm a NRA member but no sticker.

But I do have one of these.:D

Brett Bellmore
January 4, 2003, 05:42 PM
Used to. Tore it off in disgust after that Philly convention, and haven't gotten around to getting a new one. I do wear the lapel pin, though.

January 4, 2003, 05:52 PM
No. I'm just not a bumper sticker person.

January 4, 2003, 05:59 PM
Used to post it on my rear glass in my truck.
No longer since it raises such questions.
No, I'm not a communist.:o

January 4, 2003, 06:37 PM
NRA, GOA, Ruger, and Sig Arms stickers on the Wrangler.

January 4, 2003, 07:10 PM
Yes! I am not afraid to express my beliefs!!!

January 4, 2003, 07:17 PM

The only stickers that go on my cars are required by law.

January 4, 2003, 09:07 PM
Yep, back window of my silverado,NRA,NRA Certified Instructor,NRA RSO.

GLOCKabilly, Thats a heckofa sticker you got there! I like it.:D

January 4, 2003, 09:34 PM
Have it right on the back window of my f-150 with my ,I love my ak-47 sticker:what:

Yep, one NRA Life sticker on each side rear window. I've seen some soccer moms give me funny looks, but hey, too bad. :D

January 4, 2003, 10:38 PM
I generally do not put ANY stickers on my car that are not required by law. By nature I am shy and retiring ( :D ) and do not like to call attention to myself...until it's too late for my opponent to notice and react.

January 4, 2003, 10:45 PM
I am not a member of the NRA, but I am a member of the Texas State Rifle Association and I do have a TSRA sticker on my Jeep.

January 4, 2003, 11:31 PM
No NRA sticker on the new buggy.

On my old mini-van I had the "Practice Random Kindness and Sensless Acts of Beauty" and "Visualize Whirrled Peas" stickers though. I was real stealthy back then. Discrete is neat.

NRA member - but not the bumper sticker type.

However, living here in the PRK, I do fantasize about about adding an NRA sticker to the bumper of the local obnoxious soccer mom-mobile with the "Re-elect Gray Davis" bumper sticker on it.

"Lucy - you have some explaining to do..." :D

Wouldn't want to waste a perfectly good NRA sticker, though.

January 4, 2003, 11:48 PM
Yep...all my vehicles have the NRA roundel sticker prominently displayed on a left-side window. Not quite as obvious as the 'Gore-Free Tennessee' bumper stickers, but noticeable nonetheless. :cool:

January 5, 2003, 12:05 AM
Nope. Have one on my entertainment center though.I might put one on the car one day as I'm definitely not afraid too.

January 5, 2003, 01:05 AM
I have one on my rear window but I'm thinking of removing it for two reasons.

Around here people are generally anti-gun and the police are no exception. I'm told that most police around here consider an NRA sticker to be probable cause to search you and your car for guns. I haven't been pulled over for some time so I haven't confirmed it but from what I've seen of local cops I believe it. Anyway, I generally don't have the time to be inconvenienced with a search if it's true.

It does make a car more of a target for thieves hoping to find guns and other valuables. I've also read that it increases the chances of having your home broken into (a car w/ an NRA sticker probably belongs to a gun owner thus the house it is parked in front of probably contains guns). Isn't increased safety from criminals one of the reasons we have guns to begin with?

The sticker illustrator needs to take lessons on handling a trigger. The kid is wearing the revolver like it was a set of brass knuckles.

January 5, 2003, 02:25 AM
Absolutely not. In fact, I don't have ANY stickers on my car, not even my work sticker (it sits on my dashboard). If I were a criminal looking for a gun, one of the first places I'd look would be a car with an NRA sticker on it. If you want to advertise to total strangers, fine. I choose not to do so.

I had a car that was severely vandalized once that I had a bumper sticker sticker on that read: I don't brake for Liberals or Antigunners

So much for the liberals' rabid protection of free speech!

January 5, 2003, 04:37 AM
Truck = NRA

Suburban=Ducks Unlimited


All Three=OU tag on front. :neener:

January 5, 2003, 09:40 AM
Yes I do, on both trucks, back window drivers side. Older truck has NRA just left of AMFA (Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association) and just above Harley decal w/ US FLAG Stating: Harley Pride. Newer truck has NRA left of Eagle holding Harley Bar and Shield. (Drivers Side Rear Window Lets An Approaching LEO Know You Are One Of The Good Guys). As far as perps breaking into my vehicle or house because of an NRA decal, I have two comments: 1.If the perp's worth shooting, he is worth shooting twice. 2.At our house, we don't call 911! :what: HUSBAND FATHER VETERAN PROUD AMERICAN. ANY QUESTIONS?

June 20, 2008, 04:50 PM
Nope, nothing gun related, but the Izaak Walton sticker and the Oregon Country Fair sticker ID me as a peace loving older hippie. All in the name of OPSEC....

June 20, 2008, 04:56 PM
Yes, on my truck's rear window. I dont really like stickers either, but this one and an American flag (don't have one) are allowed.

June 20, 2008, 05:04 PM
This is what's on my Z71

Marty B
June 20, 2008, 05:13 PM

Oh, and a winchester license plate on the front!!

June 20, 2008, 05:14 PM
People have sliced the windows of my Jeep just to look around when there's nothing in it.

Unfortunately, an NRA sticker in a workplace parking lot can be the equivalent of a sticker that says, "This vehicle contains a bunch of cash and the owner won't be back 'til 5pm."

This is a safe place for a person to live. Cars, however, are often crime victims, though it used to be much worse, even. It's illegal to set up your car so it can defend itself against criminals or believe me, I would have done so years ago already.

June 20, 2008, 05:22 PM
I don't do bumper stickers or decals.

The last sticker to go was NRA's.

I live a 30 minute drive from Windsor, Ontario. I let my teenage daughter drive my car there to go to the Casino. She was hassled at the border by Canadian authorities after they noticed the NRA sticker. They searched the car. Fortunately, I cleaned out the car of all spent brass, loose ammo, and other gun related stuff before she took the car.

There are wackos out there that get offended by stickers. My W '04 sticker pissed off a lot of people. Just not worth it.

June 20, 2008, 06:17 PM
Not on the car, but I do have a warning sticker near the front door of my home.

June 20, 2008, 06:54 PM
We live in a different world these days, people like to attack you when you can't fight back I.E. when your car is sitting in a parking lot and you're nowhere around. If such hasn't happened to you yet fine, it has happened to me.

Here in Colorado we've had homes vandalized (both parties) for campaign signs in the front yard.

There was a case in which a senior officer of the U.S. Army was caught spray painting obscenities on cars W/ pro Bush bumperstickers.

My car was vandalized due to a "Veterans for Bush" bumpersticker ( I can say that W/ certainty because the sticker received the brunt of the vandalism.

My wife was harrassed by another motorist from one end of town to the other for the same sticker. The day she told me about it we both signed up for the CHP class ( talk about the law of unintended consequences) and every bumper sticker except the little kid kneeling at the cross came off the car haven't had a problem yet.

June 20, 2008, 07:15 PM
For a society that is supposed to be open-minded and diverse, there sure are a lot of closed minded haters out there that have no respect for others property.

June 20, 2008, 07:31 PM
Wow! Holy Thread Necromancy Batman!! FIVE years++?!!

But I'll bite. Yes, I have NRA and ISRA stickers on the bumper of my truck. I can understand the reasons why some folks won't. I also had a (sniff) bumper sticker for my favorite presidential candidate on there until he dropped out.

My wife (an NRA Life-Member but FAR more discrete than me) won't have stickers other than U.S. flags on her car. The odd thing is, she drives the old truck more often than I do (!).

No stickers on my old Chevy or Jeep as I don't do stickers on them.

Actually, as they keep sending stickers, we've got NRA/ISRA stickers all over the place really.

June 20, 2008, 07:32 PM
I don't have any stickers on my car.

Even if I did I probably wouldn't put one on my car, I'd feel like it was advertising that I had a gun in the car when parked and get my car broken into more often.

June 20, 2008, 07:35 PM
Nope, but I did stick it somewhere else...

June 20, 2008, 07:47 PM
What the hell is that thing?

June 20, 2008, 07:48 PM
Used to on my Rover but since I got rid of her none now. I Wear an NRA life member jacket in winter. I am just not a big fan of the stickers they clutter up a car. Plus it's kinda like saying steal the gun in the trunk.

June 20, 2008, 07:49 PM
I don't. It's not really that I'm afraid of theft. I just don't put stickers on my car period.

I might be willing to get an NRA license plate holder though.

June 20, 2008, 07:53 PM
No stickers of any kind on my car. I can't figure out what the point of 'em is. Except for the one to remind me that I'm overdue on my oil change.

June 20, 2008, 08:25 PM be honest, I don't really have NRA stickers, but I do have NRA license plate frames. And I used to have one of those NRA Life Member receiver hitch inserts until some guy rear ended me at a stoplight. We pulled over, and he jumped out to see if I was OK, and I feigned concern and said...."I'm OK..but you broke my NRA sign!!" I thought he was gonna wet himself....ha...I think he thought I was some kinda nut who was gonna shoot him. I just laughed then and eased his concern. No harm, no foul. Gotta say though...the look on his face was priceless. :evil:

June 20, 2008, 08:41 PM
Unfortunately, no.
I hate not to be able to do a little advertising for the NRA, VCDL, etc, but as others have pointed out, they can make you a target for thieves.
I would like to be able to put one of the "I'm the NRA and I vote" stickers on the back window of all my vehicles.
It would be nice for as many politicians as possible to see it!

June 20, 2008, 09:59 PM
Had one on my bronco rear window so I could lower it when I crossed into Canada, they don't much like us at the border crossing, then raise it when I hit the US border,

I too Have been asked about guns at the Cannuk border [On my way to the Ballet]

YES ==== I have the back of my van covered with 2A decals including the NRA.!
YES== It almost cost me BIG TIME----I was moving to MT in a GMC 7000 Truck with everything I owned in it towing my chevy van Going through a s-dakota Weigh station I was pulled aside and the first thing the gestapo asked me --carring any drugs or weapons [ WHY NO sir ==Just my entire collection of guns ] Well lets see here goes to my truck walks part way around and asks OPEN this up [Side door ] [Yea I know about search warrents ] I open the padlock and my phone and batteries fall out along with some other cargo that fell over during the trip. Lucky I put all my guns under cover and hid them well If this sukka had seen any of them I envision the cops unloading my truck and putting all my guns On canvas tarp while the anti gun News media took photos -[remember this is TOM DASCHEL territory]
Satisfied I posed no threat he let me pass -----NOW If he had walked to the back of my van He would have seen the dozens of pro gun bumper stickers stuck all over the back doors !!!!!!! I shudder as to think what would have happened .. I was visibly shaken traveling the rest of the way through SD untill I hit WY.
I live in NY stinking state -and I have a different van --IT too is covered with anti demoncrap stickers and progun stickers-western NY is pro gun ! the cops are too!
My car is void of anything that makes it stand out different from anyother car--Stealth is good !
Remember =When I traveled to canada I was hasseled at the boarder--DONT go to Canada!

thieves look to steal cash, jewelery, and guns. So it's not generally recommended that you let them know something worth stealing may be in your vehicle or in your house.

Mas Ayoob advocates no stickers on your vehicles or your front door to warn them or invite them to follow you and make note of where you live. I have found his advice valuable and so I continue to follow it. Your mileage may vary of course!

However, I have a jacket with a Second Amendment Foundation sticker on it, a patch for GSSF on the shoulder too. I wear that jacket to work, to the store, and other places too. I also have a few NRA logowear items I wear at various times, but I am selective about when and wear in light of my first point about thieves taking notice.

June 21, 2008, 01:11 PM
No, I live in a college town and there is no bigger bigot than a gun hating college punk. :cuss: :fire:

June 21, 2008, 02:19 PM
I think its interesting that five years ago when this thread went to sleep the vote was 46% to 54% (or pretty close to that) against the stickers now it's like 2 to 1 I wonder if that's an indication of how times are changing

June 21, 2008, 02:26 PM
I used too years ago, but back then I also had a rifle in a rack in the back window and didn't have to worry about some low-life scumbag stealing it.

Way too many meth & crack-heads around looking for an easy score to advertise anymore!

Just no longer a good idea, at all.

I don't have any NRA stickers on my car.Joe Cool's remarks are very pertinent regarding being targeted because of gun or politically oriented stickers,frames or plates.I think I remember reading that Mas Ayoob article several years ago about not doing anything to attract negative attention to your vehicle.
I will wear NRA or S&W garb mainly t-shirts or jackets,but even then picking the "spots".
Living in a small rural community might change my attitude about this matter.Unfortunately,I don't.

No, but my wife does on hers.

I used to have two on the car. But my employer bans guns on the property. When I want to go to the range, I have to park at a lot down the street. With a half dozen guns locked up in the car, I didn't want to attract any unnecessary attention. The people that work in the building at that lot are an unsavory bunch.


June 21, 2008, 03:27 PM
Nope - I'm a life member, when you get to be a life member the only thing NRA sends you for free are donation envelopes. I've brought this to mant of NRA's fund raisers to no avail. Still it's the best organization out there.

June 21, 2008, 03:34 PM
No, I don't want the attention. However, I do put the pro gun bumper stickers on my guitar cases. Likewise, I also put bands/radio stations stickers on my rifle cases. Always creates wonderful confusion.

June 21, 2008, 04:23 PM
I don't want to invite someone to break into my truck and look for a gun.

June 21, 2008, 05:18 PM
I don't do bumper stickers, especially on modern cars with painted bumper covers.

However, I do have the little round 'reversed' stickers on the inside of my rear windows.

June 21, 2008, 07:27 PM

The one on the far right is a faded SCUBA flag. I can probably get rid of the Fred Thompson sticker.

June 21, 2008, 07:49 PM
If only Fred was still a choice--sorry to digress. I went through campaign school a few years ago fot the GOP they basically stated that to candidates bumper stickers are a waist of money because they don't influence anyone. I think NRA stickers are about the same.

June 21, 2008, 07:58 PM
Yes I do. I drive all over the national capital region. Never ever had a problem.{22C94BF7-CDC0-430B-8588-F91BDDF340C8}/picture.JPG

June 21, 2008, 08:25 PM
Oddly enough there were MANY car break-ins in a single night in my old neighborhood and there were a very few cars that were not - mine was one them at that time I had only the round sticker on my car, and a "Fight Crime Shoot Back" sticker

This is my plate now...

June 21, 2008, 09:10 PM
I see no reason to hide. I have an NRA member sticker and a VCDL "Guns Save Lives" sticker on the back window of my HHR. I have never had any type of problem nor do I anticipate one.

Charlotte, NC

June 21, 2008, 09:18 PM
I keep going back and forth about putting one on mine. I don't really care for bumper stickers, but the NRA logo is small and classy so I keep wondering if I should just do it. I would almost definitely get the NRA license plate instead if I didn't already have the peace officer memorial plate.

June 21, 2008, 10:19 PM
Nope No stickers on my BMW. Well i do have two bmw stickers on the side windows. But NO STICKERS ON MY BMW

June 21, 2008, 10:36 PM
No, but I don't like stickers on my truck so I don't have any at all......

June 21, 2008, 10:59 PM
Yes, but only on my motorhome.

June 22, 2008, 08:41 AM
Have three stickers on the back window of my pickup truck--

National Rifle Association
Sea Ray
Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association

My wife has an NRA sticker on the back window of her car.


June 22, 2008, 09:10 AM

I have the NRA Life Member round sticker on my back window and the NRA Live Member license plate on the front bumper.

The only response I've gotten from them is people asking me for membership applications. :)

June 22, 2008, 09:46 AM
No. I don't advertise for anyone.

June 22, 2008, 09:47 AM
NRA ,local R&P club,"Peace through superior firepower","Freedom is not free","Real men love Jesus" and all topped off with an NRA Life Member license plate frame on the rear. An open invitation? Maybe, but all things I feel strongly about. No problems so far for twelve years.

June 22, 2008, 09:54 AM
I have several cars and they all have the NRA sticker in the lower left side of the front winshield. Around here we have local stickers for our cars and those are in the lower left of the winshield. NRA sticker comes first though.

J Star
June 22, 2008, 10:39 AM
Not yet, because I joined a couple of months ago, and knew my current car wouldn't be around long enough to bother putting them on. (Also why my Ron Paul endorsement is a magnet instead fo a sticker...)

However, when my new Jeep comes in on Tuesday....

June 22, 2008, 10:58 AM
If I put a sticker on my car for everything I believe in, I couldn't see out my windows.

Somebody once said "If you're relying on a bumper sticker to get your message across, it doesn't say much for your powers of persuasion."

June 22, 2008, 11:02 AM
Life member. No stickies of any kind on either car except parking ID for my street. Why let them know who to go after?

June 22, 2008, 11:11 AM
No stickers of any kind except for registration and inspection. OPSEC.

June 22, 2008, 11:34 AM
I have an NRA "Life Member" license plate bracket. I think I have a sticker also. I am who I am.

June 22, 2008, 11:41 AM
I don't for a few reasons. One is because, over time, they fade, crack and peel and I hate having to get them off afterward. Second, I, like was said before believe that if you need a sticker on your car to get the message across, you're doing something wrong.

June 22, 2008, 12:02 PM
I proudly display my "NRA Life Member" on the back window of my pickup. It's been there seven years and hasn't faded a bit.

June 22, 2008, 12:54 PM
Not the ones I use for trips to Canada or Washington DC. Believe me those NRA stickers can cause you headaches in such places.

June 22, 2008, 02:32 PM
Yep. It is the only sticker I have on my truck, and I need to replace it. It's getting pretty weather worn.

June 22, 2008, 02:57 PM
No, My goal is to look as dull as possible.

June 22, 2008, 05:36 PM
What the hell is that thing?

Guitar Hero guitar.

June 26, 2008, 03:01 AM
I don't like stickers on my truck. I only have the state, military, and oil change sticker on it. I do like to read them though, as I saw this one on the rear window of someone's car while driving behind them on base one day: IF GUNS CAUSE CRIME THEN WOMEN CAUSE PROSTITUTION.

June 26, 2008, 03:15 AM
Almost every car or truck I've owned had one on it. My current car has two in the back window, both the basic NRA member and the Life Member. Had them on there in San Diego and never had an issue with anyone, so I don't see why people get all worried about it. When I had one on my Ram back in the late '90s I had someone ask when I was in the Marines (funny thing was I had just got out several months prior) because they just glimpsed the sticker and thought it was the USMC emblem. When I pointed out it was an NRA sticker, they took a closer look, we had a short polite converstion and parted ways.

Oh yeah, I also have several NASCAR emblems on the car and NASCAR license frames. No ones accused me of being a crazy driver or tried to start street racing me.

June 26, 2008, 04:23 AM
I'm an NRA and VCDL member. I don't have any of those stickers on my truck or house. Like others have said, I don't want to advertise the fact I have guns. I am not ashamed or hiding the fact, I just don't want some idiot breaking into my truck thinking "free gun" when I'm not around.

June 26, 2008, 08:33 AM
No stickers on my cars except those required by the state.

June 26, 2008, 08:56 AM
There was a study a few weeks ago that showed that those with bumper stickers were more likely to be an aggressive driver (including the Jesus bumper stickers)

June 26, 2008, 09:02 AM
I don't like stickers on my car.

I may get an NRA license plate at next renewal, though.

evan price
June 26, 2008, 09:40 AM
No. US Flag only. Last thing I want is someone deciding (correctly) that my vehicles would be great places to break into and find guns.

June 26, 2008, 09:45 AM
NRA round sticker and my IDPA member sticker.
Looking for a Ruger sticker but havent found one yet.

Carl Levitian
June 26, 2008, 09:56 AM
No stickers of any kind on my cars. I like anonimity.

June 26, 2008, 11:07 AM
You bet. Next to my sticker that says "Proud to Be a Veteran"

June 26, 2008, 11:15 AM
I don't. I would really like to, but two things prevent me. 1. I've never had a bumper sticker on any of my cars ever. I don't like the look. 2. Since I park in my driveway, I don't want to advertise to would-be burglars that I have guns in my house.

June 26, 2008, 12:01 PM
I would, but believe that that would make my car/address more of a "target" for would-be criminals ("Hey, that guy must have guns!") and idiot antis who would key my car (which I just recently got repainted due to splotching of the factory original paint job).

It's due to where I live, not my feelings on the matter.

June 26, 2008, 01:23 PM
I am a member and I do have a sticker. Pros and cons to be sure, but I chose to sport it.

June 28, 2008, 05:15 AM
Yes, I display the NRA sticker on the inside of my driver's rear window next to the American flag. I go and my girlfriend go to UMKC (a very liberal university) and never a problem. We park in the garage so the random itchy-handed thief can't bust a window, but after reading all these reviews, I just might put up another:

"I have children, I lock my guns up in giant safe."

No... I don't have children... or...

"I'd rather you not break my windows to find out if I have a gun in my car, just go inside and tell the information desk a purple Dodge Stratus left it's headlights on, I'll be out in a second... maybe with a gun..."

February 21, 2011, 10:52 PM
Hey you guys,
I am a life member in Canada and am in agreement with those of you who are leery of displaying your colours north of the border.
This is NOT a free country as you know it.
When I put my NRA stickers on my car, it will be as I'm driving south to emigrate to Texas, probably for my retirement.

February 21, 2011, 11:16 PM
My license plates say it all. They read "1 NRA LF".

Warrior Honey
February 22, 2011, 12:32 AM
I had one on the back window of my car. One day my school principal told me to take it off or he would search my car. I moved my car out of the school lot; fortunately the school resource officer was a buddy and he told his street patrol LEOs to not ticket my car. It was miserable for the rest of the year: extra hall duty, lunch duty, bus duty you name it I got it. It was worth it.

February 22, 2011, 12:36 AM
As of right now no, I don't have a car I'd be willing to do that to. Maybe in the future when I look for a beater truck or car as a project I will put some stickers/magnets on it.

February 22, 2011, 12:40 AM
The only sticker allowed on my car is the Harley sticker in the back window!

February 22, 2011, 08:03 AM
I also don't have a sticker on my vehicle stating; "Free gun in glove box".

Carl N. Brown
February 22, 2011, 08:15 AM
How about a window sticker: "Do not disturb my rattlesnakes. They need to rest for next church service."

February 22, 2011, 09:06 AM
I don't believe in "advertising" any information, so I don't have any bumper stickers on my car. I try to be as stealthy and low profile as possible.

February 22, 2011, 11:19 AM
Yes - on the back window.

Because when I bought my current car - a used Subaru, my retired Navy friends didn't want people to think I was a Democrat.....

(in fact, the FIRST question they asked when I bought it was, "how ya' going to get the OBAMA stickers off of it" lol)


February 22, 2011, 12:12 PM
I don't have any stickers on my car of any kind.

February 22, 2011, 12:23 PM
No, but due to I really don't like stickers on my vehicle, not that I have anything to hide.


I hate stickers and crap on my cars ... in fact out of the 3 cars we own only one of them even has the front plate on the front bumper (lived here in CO where they do those stupid front plates for almost a decade and never had a problem with the local constabulary). Being born in raised in Kansas (where they only do a rear tag unless you get a vanity plate) has spoiled me.

Actually one of our cars (1970 Porsche 914) doesn't even have a place for a front plate (running a 916 style front bumper). We removed the plate mount from the front bumper of my wife's 1990 Nissan 240SX (and it and the state issued front plate are in the trunk).

Also antis (and other leftists) are prone to act out in destructive ways ... known many folk with conservative, Republican or pro gun stickers on their cars that end up with key scratches.

Now my tool box is covered with stickers so that's where I put my NRA sticker.

February 22, 2011, 12:24 PM
If you are a criminal do you shoot the guy with the NRA sticker and "Got Sig" shirt first, or the guy in a green t-shirt and cargo shorts?

Do you break in to the car with the NRA sticker first or the car with no decals?

Advertising like that on your car and body is a bad idea. It can quickly draw attention you do not want. I learned that lesson years ago when I was in to car stereos. A lot of people with manufacturer's stickers on the window had their equipment stolen repeatedly. I don't advertise on my car and rarely on my body.

February 22, 2011, 01:12 PM
Yes. I wish the stickers lasted longer without fading and peeling.

I guess it just depends on whether you are the kind of person that stands up for what you believe in....or not.

February 22, 2011, 01:25 PM
This thread was started in 2003! :what:

February 22, 2011, 01:31 PM
2 of them on my work van, right next to my US flag sticker that says "love it or leave !" and 1 on the wifes minivan, and 1 on my son's pickup,, not ashamed of something, or care what others think about my "gun views",, but that's just me,,,,

February 22, 2011, 04:04 PM
Seems to send a "May be a firearm in this car, please break in" message to me.

February 22, 2011, 04:09 PM
No stickers of any sort and I dont even allow the dealership I buy my trucks from to put their logo on my vehicle.

February 22, 2011, 04:12 PM
No messages on either car. Do have ADT sign in front of home. That is enough notice to bad guys.

February 22, 2011, 05:07 PM
One NRA, one Dont tred on me flag, my Nam sticker, and I want one I just saw, The oval sticker, just say 7.62. :cool:

Texas Gun Person
February 22, 2011, 05:49 PM
Nope. No NRA sticker.

I have two stickers on the back. One saying I'm a member of the local fire department, and the other is a diving flag in the shape of the state of Texas.

February 22, 2011, 06:23 PM
Nope. My F-150 is lucky I haven't ripped the Ford badging off of it yet. I like my Vehicles clean and inconspicuous.

February 22, 2011, 06:52 PM
Stealth mode here.

I used to have a few on my old beater vehicles.

The only thing worse than a bumper sticker is a crooked bumper sticker. :D

A few tasteful ones are fine, but it can get out of hand. You know what I'm talking about. Oh yeah, I really like those hanging balls off the hitch....NOT.

February 22, 2011, 08:11 PM
Never been too big on putting stickers on my car. Though the NRA sticker is the only one I ever seriously considered and probably would have stuck it on if I had one at the time.

February 22, 2011, 08:25 PM
Nope. But it's because the only stickers of any kind that I have are the two required by Texas law - registration and inspection. I have never been one to advertise my politics, religion or any other personal preferences on my car. My wife's car has been known to sport an honor roll sticker or two in the past but now that she has a leased car, we don't even do that, any more.

February 22, 2011, 08:44 PM
Nope. I just don't like stickers on my car.

February 22, 2011, 08:48 PM
Nope, don't like to advertise.

February 22, 2011, 09:01 PM
No stickers of any sort. I don't advertise anything.

February 22, 2011, 09:06 PM
1 small inside window decal on the back window and one in the window of my company truck (owners approves)

February 23, 2011, 09:36 AM
No stickers of any sort and I dont even allow the dealership I buy my trucks from to put their logo on my vehicle.
I feel the same way, I don't do dealership stickers. No NRA sticker either, just an ECU Pirate Club window cling (they're easy to change/remove). Not so much worried about 'advertising' as I am about having a faded and cracked sticker on my car.

Beach Nut
February 23, 2011, 10:25 AM
I carry concealed and I do not want the general public to have the slightest hint that I am a gun owner. Cars with NRA or pro gun stickers are sometimes targets for smash and grab burglaries. (can anyone guess what thieves would be looking for?)

February 23, 2011, 10:33 AM
We have a Beretta sticker on each side, to the rear of our little hatchback eco-mobile.
The Wife has a pink one, I have a silver one.

But no NRA sticker or anything like that.

February 23, 2011, 12:29 PM
I don't do bumper stick-its. However, my wife put a USMC window decal in both vehicles in honor of our son. Couldn't argue with that. No explicitly gun-related stuff, though.

February 23, 2011, 04:53 PM
No stickers of any kind for me.

February 23, 2011, 11:12 PM
I dont like stickers on my vehicles, so I only have one on my truck. NRA sticker that is. But nun on the Wifes car.

February 24, 2011, 11:15 AM
No, since I feel it would invite break ins. The only stickers I have are reflective for better visibity in bad weather or on bad roads.

February 24, 2011, 11:21 AM
No, and I don't have tattoos either. I go a lot of places where having options is much better than having no options.

February 24, 2011, 11:23 AM
Not on the vehicles. Vehicles are temporary and I only have so many stickers.

I put them on my trailers though. I expect that I'll always own those trailers.

I believe the 'gun stickers invite break-ins' theory... is only that.

February 24, 2011, 11:31 AM
Yep I sure do. I have one sticker on every vehicle I own and that sticker is an NRA sticker. And honestly I can't think of a real reason not to, especially living in a part of AL where we don't have anti's. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

February 24, 2011, 11:33 AM
Nope, I don't advertise that i'm carrying. I do have to disarm for my job, which means a gun is in my car for many hours. I'm not putting a "steal me" sticker out there for the world.

I do have one inside my gun safe, on my toolbox and also on the back of my netbook computer. It's harder to steal from me, thus I don't see the issue.

February 24, 2011, 11:38 AM
Not on my Mustang, but on the other everyday driver "yes".

February 24, 2011, 11:43 AM
Stickers . . . yuck. Not a political statement; I'm just a little OCD when it comes to clean vehicles and things that muck them up visually.

February 24, 2011, 11:50 AM
No NRA sticker but I do have USMC plates.

February 24, 2011, 11:53 AM
life member no steal me sticker on truck

February 24, 2011, 12:00 PM
Not on my car but on my house.

February 24, 2011, 02:55 PM
I answered no, although my car concealed-carries the sticker. ;)

February 24, 2011, 03:55 PM
You know, I just thought of something. I know (or can think of) three people that have had a gun stolen from a vehicle. One of them has had the misfortune twice. None of them were NRA members, so they probably didn't have their stickers. Hummmmm

February 24, 2011, 04:21 PM
i think most people would be surprised if i DIDN'T have a NRA sticker on my truck.....

Friendly, Don't Fire!
February 24, 2011, 04:24 PM
It is on there, but behind really tinted glass, so the only way anyone can see it is if I happen to have the door open with the sticker inside the window, it would be easier to spot from the INSIDE.

For a while, I had a Smith & Wesson decal in my clear window (Club 1851 I believe it said). I don't know where that is.

I also had a sticker on the outside that was from the local range, but decided after some time to remove that.

February 24, 2011, 06:53 PM
The first thing that I do when I buy a car is to peel away the dealer advertising. I paid for it, it is not a billboard. I am certainly not going to advertise that I may have firearms inside an easily broken car window.

February 24, 2011, 08:54 PM
I live in the city and its not a good idea to advertise that you own firearms, makes you too much of a target. But such is life. :(
Same here

February 24, 2011, 08:58 PM
I think all bumper stickers are tacky, especially the "Gun Control is using BOTH hands" ones and the like. No stickers here. In fact, they never even gave me one...

February 24, 2011, 09:09 PM
I think it's good to be proud. Sure maybe there's an off chance that the wrong folks notice but I won't spend my whole life running scared. There's something right about being who you are.

I sport an NRA Life sticker and a VCDL sticker on my truck. Both organizations are valuable to me and worthy of my support.

February 24, 2011, 09:19 PM
I have an NRA sticker on my truck. I have several different stickers on there. I could care less if someone else thinks bumper stickers are "tacky". One of the posts on an earlier page a guy said an NRA sticker on his vehicle would get his windshield smashed in the town he lived. Why would anybody continue to live in that environment? No amount of money would keep me in a sorry place like that. I have never had one problem with any of the stickers I have had on my trucks.

February 25, 2011, 02:16 AM
I'm just not a bumper sticker guy. Maybe I'm weird, but I like the "OEM" look.

I do not. I feel it paints my car with a big bulls-eye. Never been a sticker/decal kind of guy anyway on my vehicles.

February 25, 2011, 09:30 AM

February 25, 2011, 11:32 AM
No bumper sticker, nothing for NRA, but I do have a window decal for TSRA.

March 22, 2011, 11:09 AM
NRA Hat on the back dash... because I don't wear hats :)

March 22, 2011, 02:03 PM
Like others have posted, I don't care for stickers on my vehicles. But I do wear an NRA hat and life member pin.

March 22, 2011, 06:46 PM
No I don't have any stickers on my cars. I have a DOD sticker on my truck but that's just so I can get into the base easier. They are a bit of a ticket magnet out of state though...:(

I've even gotten to the point where I'm taking the car badges off of them. I'm planning on removing the factory wings too.

March 22, 2011, 06:55 PM
Yes I do.:D

March 22, 2011, 06:58 PM
No sir; I do not like wearing target indicators.

Especially since I do not believe in firearms or valuables kept in homes lol.

March 22, 2011, 07:43 PM
All I have is a transformers decepticon logo, a browning buckmark, and a support zombies ribbon magnet on the back of my car. Dont see any need for an NRA one.

March 23, 2011, 10:00 PM
Yup, I have a riced out Eclipse (Stereotypical obnoxious teenager car) with an NRA sticker on the rear driver's side window. My car is red and black, as well as the interior, so i kind of blends in

March 24, 2011, 11:05 AM
Not only an NRA sticker on the back window of my truck, but also a TN issued NRA license plate. The county I live in has a Sheriff that not only supports the citizens owning firearms, he give talks on the 2nd Amendment in the schools.

March 24, 2011, 11:08 AM
No, but then I don't have ANY stickers on my vehicles, not even my AAA one

March 24, 2011, 11:42 AM
One nra, tsra, winchester, buckmark, my mos symbol (19k). This is on my f150. On the wifes escape i have an nra sticker along with one that proclaims me to be The Stig. :)

March 24, 2011, 12:21 PM
I've got the NRA license plate.

March 24, 2011, 12:59 PM
It is on the bumper cover. The bumper cover is not on the car. The bumper cover will be repainted. So I will have to put a new one on the car before it goes back on the race track.

March 24, 2011, 01:22 PM
Thanks for the reminder. Just put an NRA sticker on my new truck rear window along with stickers from my colleges.

March 24, 2011, 01:26 PM
Well, I have an NRA sticker on my truck and I'm not a member. Saw no particular reason to take it off when I bought the truck.

March 24, 2011, 01:36 PM
Indeed I do. The scowls I get make me smile. (I live in the Albany area and we have a lot of downstate antis due to it being the state capital)

March 24, 2011, 01:38 PM
No, it's like saying," break into my vehicle to steal my gun" or "If you are going to car jack me, be alert because I am more likely to be armed." More the first than the last.

I just don't like bumper stickers, I don't have any on my car or truck.

March 24, 2011, 01:39 PM
No, it's not.
I don't leave weapons in the car.
That said, I have a life member sticker as well as a sticker.

March 24, 2011, 01:39 PM
I am a NRA Lifer with no stickers of any kind on the car unless state issued. That being said, I have stickers all over the laptop and iPad! The stickers are very visible on both gadgets!

For a while in Ohio, for an annual fee of $25.00, you could order your vehicle license plates with the slogan "National Rifle Foundation" emblazoned on them. Part of the fee goes toward the NRA's cause. In addition to said plates, I have decals denoting my NRA "Benefactor" status and my Camp Perry involvement proudly displayed on my Ford F-250 pick-up truck.
