My boxster got shot last night........

.........by paint guns I'm glad I wasn't in it at the time or I probably would have ended up doing something stupid that I would have regretted later, it would have been really stupid for me to unload my .45 on someone at 2:00 AM in the morning but I would have been really incensed and if I saw them pointing at me, I would have not known it was a paint gun and I would have fired back. I found it when I got up this AM. I should have took some pictures but I didn't want to waste time before trying to get it off. Thankfully it washed off with high pressure, but waking up to a tye-died boxster (when its usually Seal Grey) wasn't a great way to get up today. I guess I should be thankful that they just got the body and didn't shoot the top as well. I didn't notice any dents so hopefully everything is as good as new.

Mike

Glad it cleaned up! Understand the inclination to apply .45 ACP retaliation. Cops gotta feel that not-knowing sensation every time a kid points a water gun at them. And the legal system too often sides with the punks.

Unfortunately, there are a number of companies out there making guns in every color of the rainbow. Badguys are buying them in "toy looking" colors to make the Police hesitate, giving them the advantage. Now if somebody points an orange gun at you, you might want to shoot them anyway.

I'm glad to hear the car's O.K. Mike.

I went to a Porsche mechanic this morning looking for an old rim for one of my 912s. Punks had broken the windows and lights out of all the parts cars and cars for sale on his lot.
