No, use 9's and let them get 100 yards first, you'll frighten the whits out of them but do no harm and you wont end up doing time for them

Re: what tracker?

it really depends how much you wanna spend tbh , there are some on the market that are ok as long as the item its fitted to is not put into a shipping container or simmilar and are quite cheep of there is the other end of the scale that or monitored by a monitoring company 24/7 and will not only find it but pin point it within 5 -10 meters and send the gprs position to the police . i personally would not look at the cheaper end of the scale at all and on a pluss side the better the tracker the more you can get off of your insurance each year !!
