Hi everyone, my dad's truck got broken into again and they stole his headunit. I am tired of these people and I want them to get what they deserve. His truck was broken into a little while ago and was recently broken into again. I assume they wanted to see if we replaced the headunit, which we have not. So my question is, should we install an alarm? Or maybe even a security camera that points to the truck? This all went down in front of our house. I know if we put a new head unit in, they will be back within a month or so and take it.
Thanks for your time,
Matthew

My dad told me that back in the day one of his brothers put small razor blades around the headunit after his sh it was stolen a few times. One day he went to his car and found blood all over, but the headunit was still there:laugh:

Go catch 2 or 3 rattlesnakes and put them in an expensive looking briefcase and leave it on the passanger seat. No thief coild resist opening it up to see what's in it. If you're really ballsy, open the case and beat them with a coat-hanger every night that way they'll be more prone to attack the first thing in front of them when the case opens.

All you have to do is shake it up real good every night and leave it on the front seat...make sure to put Do not Open !!!...Private on front of the briefcase....it makes a theif want to open it even more...plus you never have to lock your doors again...

hmmm, yea, Idk, maybe I should get an alarm. Do I have a legal right to beat down this mu%^*$# with my bat if I see him breaking into the truck?

Great legal system we have here...

If I ever saw someone trying to steal my hard earned stuff, either they're going to the hospital or I am. No way I stand for some sh it like that. Can't wait til I'm 21 so I can get a gun... legally.

it is a great legal system you have. Remember the guy that slipped and broke something (cant remember right now) at the side of the pool while breaking into a house. Happened a about 10 years ago, but he won.

Yes, I know... but I'm still under my parents roof... don't think they'd go for me getting a shotty lol. Maybe when I move out next year, but I'll prolly just wait til I can get me a nice .38 or somfin :santa:

Sweet! I am 21... The irony of this is that when I was younger, some ^$&*@* broke into our house and stole some things and my dads shotgun. He used it for hunting.

I think you can shoot people that are trespassing in some states (texas), but definitly not all of them.

An alarm would be a good idea. 2-way pager w/ 1 mile range if you can afford it.

chillin

I would get an alarm with a pager. If you catch the guy breaking into your ride, you can beat the **** outa him and walk back into your house like it never happened. Then it will be his word against yours and chances are he has a record and his word aint worth ****.

If im remembering right then an 18 year old cannot buy a hand gun from a federally licensed dealer but under many state laws he can buy one from private sales. Federal law says nothing about private sales, it does specifically say federally licensed dealer though. Of course when i learned all of this it was a couple of years ago so it could have changed. I gotta .380 and im only 19, it was a gift.

Back on topic. Park the car somewhere else? Or a alarm system you keep asking about would probably work as long as you guys will wake up from it.

i meant like in the back or somethin if he can. I know nothing of where he lives but around a lot of the older neighbor hoods around here there are alley ways in the back of just about every house. Again on the alarm system i believe some models will allow for additional hook ups for extra sirens.

10-23-2010, 08:01 PM
Well, we can't park it anywhere else, my mom's car is parked in the garage and there is another car in there. I think an alarm will be the way to go. Can I get a good 2 way alarm for 150?

ya a 2 way would be your best bet, I suggest compustar, its better to spend a bit extra and get a reliable alarm

An alarm will be fine. It will make a lot of noise when the car gets broken into and scare away the burglar. They dont like attention being brought to them, especially at 2 am. An alarm saved my truck years ago. I had an old school mazda b2000 that looked like it had expensive equipment in it. And it was really easy to break into, all you need was a large flat tip screw driver in place of a key. Alarm woke me up at around two in the morning and I flew out the front door to see three guys running down the street.
