Spike strips

What caught my attention in this article was the spike strips. Now, I've never been scared of being accosted by a mob in my truck. If I feel uncomfortable, I'll simply drive straight through the bastards. But I hadn't considered they'd make their own spike strips. Think about what these are for, they're not for the cops, these are for us. If they somehow manage to take out both of your drive or both of your steer tires, you won't make it far. Probably far enough to get away.... maybe.

Moral of the story, always carry your weapon. And if you can't legally, and live in a hot spot, might consider breaking that law.

Just my thoughts.

I am confident that we will ALL be faced with the prospect of carrying illegally in the near future.

good food for thought indeed. if you HAVE to go where this kind of nonsense may happen, you better practice your mag changes.

Also, time to look into kevlar lined tires.

Up until recently I never carried an additional weapon in my vehicle.

Now I rarely leave home without a carbine in the car. Also a vest with spare mags for both my handgun and the carbine.

I can't have a truck gun, mine gets broken into on occasion. Run flats aren't a bad idea.

A truck gun is fine. Leaving it in the rig unattended makes you part of the problem.

I've seriously considered doing this. But I haven't found a way to SECURE a firearm when the vehicle is unattended.
I can HIDE the firearm pretty well (my windows are tinted fairly dark & the rear seat folds down enough to hide whatever I put there. But hiding isn't secure enough for me.
So I carry 3 pistols with a spare mag each.
Thank God for cargo pants & shorts.

Hell, I carried illegaly for over 30 years before my State gave us permission. I really couldn't care less what a bunch of snowflake politicians decide to "allow" me to do anymore. I don't have many days left on this Earth and I'm going to live and die as a free American.

I wasn't that bold. But I didn't carry at BSU when it wasn't allowed. Screw em, hate colleges anyway.

Truck guns are fine, just take with with you when you park.

My tires are all de-facto Run Flat. Meaning if I gotta run I don't care if they're flat. Hopefully I can modulate steering an especially THE THROTTLE to stay in control. At least long enough to get out of the area.

You definitely can, even with a dead flat tire. It'll last for a bit, untill it shreds. Once you're on rims, it's still doable as long as you don't loose both. Once you loose either both drive wheels, or steer wheels, you're burnt. And if it's front wheel drive, you're double burnt.

Forgot about open differentials. If it's an open diff, you're burnt if you even one goes to just rim

I suggest you rethink your plan.

Don't be too concerned about Stop Strips, as you can continue to march for quite awhile w/ 4-flat tires.

I was once in a chase down the Interstate w/ a stolen V8 Gran Cherokee w/ 4-flat tires. He continued on at 80mph until the aluminum rims were worn down to nubbins and the engine blew. He then continued at 70mph, blowing oily smoke and sparks from the wheels into the air. It was awesome and I wish I had a video camera.

The only reason he stopped before running out of gas was two semis blocked him in, so he tried going around them. Never try turning a vehicle at 70mph when you are on the rims. He went airborne and did 1 1/2 barrel-rolls thru the air, 20-feet above ground, coming to earth on his top.

Distance from when he drove over the Stop Strips until he landed: >35-miles.

I think I'd be able, even on four flats, to get outta the Danger Area.

Jamiesaun --------- No FWD here. The only front wheel drive cars I would have for personal use would be a vintage Mini or Honda 600 Z Coupe.

I'm a RWD w/ Manual Transmission kinda guy!

Yeah, a lotta the Muscle & Classics I deal with are autos but they are just inventory.

Why?
Cops are too heavy to carry & carrying a rifle (perfectly legal in my state) causes some people to lose their minds & have the cops surrounding me.

Seriously. How many guns can you shoot at once? Do you plan on losing two in one engagement?

I'm a rear wheel guy too. Actually, I'm a 4wd kinda guy. But I absolutely hate manual transmissions. I hate driving them, I hate working on them, I loathe everything about them.

Now, you will probably be able to get away, maybe. If it's down to rims, forget about it. You'll just be shooting sparks and spinning cookies. But until the tire shreds, you should be able to get far enough..... maybe.

But, you always carry a weapon...... right?

Big difference between “home made” and store bought stop sticks. The spikes on manufactured stop sticks are hollow like a hypodermic needle; they allow for a gradual release of air; a homemade one, made with spikes or large nails would probably cause a blowout; a more dangerous situation then a “controlled” release of air.
