I wouldn't leave the note or announce you have firearms. You are just letting criminals know you have guns in your house to steal.

2) bad guy watches what he wants for a day or two to see its routine (bad guys with big balls an no brains either do it on the spot on day 1 or day 2)
3) bad guy learns the objects routine, security stance, and viable threat patterns that would keep said bag guy from illegally obtaining object
4) with all the info collected bad guy acts on information to successfully obtain object.

This is called "casing". Police usually refer to that routine as casing. Its essentially putting together key info that would make a heist successful.

Therefore... I need to change my security posture on the vehicle to deter/deny possible offenders access to my goods.

Like a BOSS!

Honestly, my stance on theft prevention is simple. If a thief wants it he is going to get it, If he cant he will destroy it. So the easy solution is dont make it harder to steal, just make it easier to recover and make sure your well insured. Vehicles can always be replaced. Damaged vehicles are a pain to get fixed correctly

This is true. My dad has a soft top S2000 and when we went to a restaurant I asked him if he wanted me to lock it. He said no... if they want anything they will just cut the.top and take it anyways.

I'm looking at alarm systems tomorrow and I'm going to wire in a kill switch so you can only start the car a special way. I still want to shave my door handles down the road :/

If I had a car worth stealing and lived in a bad area I'd have two kill switches and wire my alarm to a ****ing train horn

I'm looking at buying a 00-04 2.5rs, aside from the head gasket and the usual used car minor problems (rust, etc.) is there anything you guys know of that I should look for when I find one w/ the right miles/price?

I need some help. I really want to get a 2004-2006 Subaru WRX STi as my first car. Ive found some in my price range but my dad says that insurance will be way to much. Is that true? How much did you guys start off paying for insurance?

insurance varies greatly area to area and other factors as well but Your dad is right for the most part. it will be way too much.

Call the insurance company an ask. Don't be surprised if you get quotes for 400-500 a month or possibly more. Thats a bad choice for a first car unless you are prepared to pay for it.

Glad my parents have decided the garage is mine. My 240 stays at my parents, the civic stays unlocked at the apartment.

Unless you're a full-time, straight A college student, I wouldn't even remotely try a Subaru. Wait till you're over 25 or have a good paying and stable job.

My first car was a 91 dodge Dakota pickup. I did everything in that truck that I do now with the Subaru

Then I bought a 3000GT... insurance was 295 a month at 19 years old. Trust me... wait

My buddy Completed all 3 levels of HPDE(NASA) in a 94 civic hatch that is almost stock aside from saftey equipment and an H22. I rode in that car it was rediculous. hes building that car for the honda challenge and hes driving a friends stock car in Super Unlimited. This weekend he won both days.



TLDR: you dont need a fast car to learn to drive the wheels off of one.
