    Brian and I were coming out of Meijers yesterday and I turn my back to get something and he's gone. I'm scanning the parking lot to see where he went (cause he dropped me off at the door) . He is racing with the cart towards the car. I see this hooptie next to it(we park out in BFE) and 2 kids are circling the car. He hits the alarm and scares the crap outta them...of,course they just wanted too see it, and he's a big guy so they won't mess with him. Now if I was alone and coming out to that I probably would of hesitated. Brian tells me never to pull over and just show someone the car he thinks the wrong person would knock me out and take the car(I know not every person has bad intentions). Everyday I drive this car it gets attention(until the novelity wears off I guess) ,but it is always in the back of my head to be aware of my surroundings ...if that makes sense. Ladies what are your precautions?

    Thats the problem with these cars. Glad I got my pick up to use to go places like the stores. I don't know if I could park in a grocery store lot even in BFE. Maybe in a couple months when more people see them.

    I think I will take my 45 with me when I drive the car. ( not the 9 that I usually have )

    My husband carries I don't ...he keeps telling me he wants me to get it, but we have yet to do it. I had a guy pull up to me yesterday in the Costco parking lot talking about the car and I kept backing up away from his door...you just don't know these days.

    If they want to see the car, and your alone, crack the window and tell them your husband said you can't unless he is there. I know it sounds sexist, but it would probably work.

    No that is exactly what he told me to do..he said you do not pull over unless I'm with you. Thank you for the advice!

    Get your concealed if possible. Even the tasers that continue to ramp up and down after you drop them are a good and non lethal option for the ladies. Plus when fired, they shoot out serialized confetti and if a police report is filled and it's missing from the scene they will replace it for free. At least they would a few years ago. I bought one for a GF at the time. She also took the concealed stuff with me and bought a revolver later on and took a course locally to feel more comfortable.

    Check these out.

    This is my opinion. Like I said my opinion

    I think the best in people I don't judge people till they give me a right to judge them. Can't tell a person by how they look or what they drive. I do carry never want to pull it because you better be ready to pull the trigger if you do.

    That's why I don't want a gun...if somebody wanted my car they can have it that's why I have insurance. ..I, on the other hand , am not replaceable. My husband pulled his once in all the years he's had it..a guy was trying to steal his tires in Detroit. .he came around the truck saw him he came at him with a tire iron he pulled it...he ran...no shots fired.

    Carolyn, your fortunate enough to be living in a C.C.W. state. Why would you not take a course & carry. I don't know the numbers but I'll bet you that you are more likely to be assaulted than your husband & he carries...

    That Hell Cat is rolling advertising right now. Then they see the blond driving it.... Most people are good, but let God sort em out if your attacked!

    This country I'm in, believes it's better to see a woman raped than an attacker shot & possibly killed. If I was wrong; I would see more woman with concealed carry permits. My wife would be one of them in a heart beat!
    Here we have concealed carry permits, but it's dam near impossible to obtain. Ranks up there with unicorns!

    Here, the liberal masses believe the violence is related to the gun and not the individual.o_O

    You should try driving a Sublime Hellcat.

    While I try to be nice to everybody you always have to be careful. As a woman I think you need to be EXTRA careful.

    In the end it's only a car (I know that's hard for us to think) and your personal safety is way more important than the car.

    You might even politely tell someone that you are not comfortable talking to someone you don't know in a parking lot and then be on your way. Anybody with good intentions will understand that. Anybody that gets offended or otherwise is somebody you need to watch out for!

    I carry my .45 1911, but I sure like the ability to put 17 rounds of Zombie rounds down range that the 9mm allows.
