Anyone have a truck gun (handgun or longarm)?

For me its my Ruger single six convertible loaded up with 22mag. It didnt cost that much at all so im not too worried about the ill effects of leaving it in the truck for long periods of time.

I recommend against leaving firearms in vehicles overnight for security reasons.

Were it not for security reasons, there is no reason to be concerned that the simple presence of the gun in a vehicle would have any significant effect on a properly-stowed firearm.

I've been hauling a Glock around in my car for years, and other than evidence of firing, it looks virtually brand new.

I don't understand this notion of "truck gun" which implies that some element of deliberate neglect defines the application.

I do carry an Hk USP Tactical in the trunk of my jeep in a medic bag for rural or long distance travel.
But I take it down when I'm at home.
I'd hate to make a present of a firearm for someone to use against someone else if it's stolen.
But I do believe having a "Truck gun" handy is not a bad idea.

I try to keep my SKS close and available n the truck. It is a medium rifle which can be used in a variety of roles, and not so valuable that I will be heartbroken if something happens to it. I can throw it across the handlebars and drag it through the sagebrush if I need to and it will run.

I also don't like the idea of leaving a firearm unattended in a vehicle. Of course I used to live in a very densely populated area of Dallas. Smack in the middle of the junction of decent, really nice and downright crappy neighborhoods. Major street with lots of random foot traffic.

Where I live now, I get the feeling that the practice is far more commonplace, but I still don't do it.

Usually it's just what I'm carrying, though sometimes on trips I'll throw my 642 in the console. It's easier to get to than my G19 IWB under my shirt and seatbelt.

If I were going to have a dedicated truck (SUV actually) gun, theoretically I would lean towards a big bore revolver. In a pinch, my 3.5" Cimarron Thunderer in .45 Colt might work. I'm just spitballing here, but if there existed say a 3" 5 shot Smith in the flavor of .44 Special... Again, just dreamin'.

All that being said, having to light off anything mentioned in the cab of a vehicle would be less than pleasant, however effective. Maybe you are on to something.

Cool gun, BTW.

Edited to add: This is assuming handguns, as I live in town. If I were going to be in or lived in a more rural area, either of my lever rifles (.45 Colt or .30-30) or MAYBE my AR.

I don't leave a gun in the car when I am not in it. I NY it would have a short life expectancy I got used to not leaving it when I carried there for 23 years. You were lucky if the car was there, let alone the gun. FL is getting to be similar down South, so, No, I would never do that.

I've had truck/car guns in my two cars and truck 24/7 for many years.

My idea of a car/truck gun is something powerful enough to go though a car door and way into the person inside. Something like the Stainless Ruger 357 Security Six.

To LeonTheProfessional;

Originally, your gun was not a Single Six but a Super Single Six. That's because the Single Six had fixed sights whereas the Super Single Six had the adjustable rear sights. I know because that was my first gun, which I bought on April 5, 1968, the day after MKL was killed. I had a Single Six on order ($65) but when I went in to the gun shop that day, it had not come in but they had a few Super Single Sixes ($78). So I bought one. Mine also had the 5 1/2" barrel as does yours. I had a ball with that gun and am sorry I ever traded it in.

Glock 26. I can carry it in a pocket if I decide to go somewhere I hadn't planned on, and it uses the 33-round mags stashed in my get-home back. What's not to love?

If NC would let me keep a long gun in the vehicle on campus, it'd be an 870. But, only handguns.

My XD40 sits in my truck a lot, ergo "truck gun".

I think my 79 Marln 1894c .357 would be a perfect "truck gun" but it's about flawless and is not going to go knocking around behind the seat of the truck.

Unless your vehicle is stolen there is a way to greatly diminish the odds a pistol will be stolen from your vehicle. Install a pistol safe. I have put these in 4 vehicles. I use the safes with integral simplex locks that allow setting of your own combination. The push buttons, then turn knob, design makes them very fast to open by feel alone. I installed the in two ways. For the two trucks I bolted them to the floor sealing the holes and exterior bolt heads with silicon, and using locking nuts inside the safes. In the two cars I used the thickest of vinyl coated steel bicycle cable, very heavy eyebolt installed in the safe, and a Master No.220 lock that defeats 24" bolt cutters and probably 36". The cable passes through the seat mounts. In the trucks a light jacket thrown over the safes provides concealment. In the cars the safes slide under the seats. This may all be illegal in your locality so you have been warned and don't think about coming after me if you get pinched.

I keep a Type 53 rifle under my truck seat. It's there for emergencies. It's rugged enough to not need much in the way of care, short enough to fit where I need it too, powerful enough to handle everything from defense to putting a crippled animal out of its misery, and cheap enough that I won't cry too much if it gets stolen.

Tokarev chambered sub gun base. Cheap, reliable, high capacity and penetrating performance that being in a vehicle needs. If only it could spit fire in automatic burst like originally intended, it would make an excellent controllable suppressive defensive to offensive weapon, however that would then make it an NFA weapon then carrying in a vehicle is out of the question.

How about a trunk gun? In my Toyota.

Was a Stoeger Coach 12, broken down and kept in a 22' tripod zipper bag. Two boxes of 000 to round it out.

Now I just keep a .22 revolver in there most of the time.

I keep an old S&W model 10 .38 under a towel on the seat. I park in my garage at night so don't worry about it getting stolen.
I don't understand keeping a gun broken down in a case. What good is that if you need it quickly? Unless you plan on getting stranded in the wilderness, if you need it you will need it quickly under most circumstances.

I keep at least a pistol in my truck or car at all times, along with a survival kit (3 days food and water). Breaking down isn't funny. For the quick defense idea, I usually have my carry gun. Everything else is kept locked up, but accessible within about 30 seconds or so. The point is to have a backup weapon in case I forgot mine or my main pistol broke, a long gun in case I have to survive for a while, and an extra level of firepower for unexpected travel or if I end up with a REALLY bad day going on (riot? pack of feral dogs?). It's about planning ahead - if you have one of something, you have none. If you have two, you have one that will work. I do the same with methods of communication, tools, and spare tires.

An old cut down H&R single is usually in my truck. Shown in 20 ga with 12 ga and .357 bbls. The pouch holds 27- 20ga shells or about 20-12ga or a couple boxes of 357s. I usually carry it with the 20 ga bbl however, less recoil holds more rounds.

Whole package is only 18" long when taken down. 12 ga shown in this photo. Both shotgun barrel now have fiber optic snap on front sight as shown above. The dime is my take down tool. It only costs 10 cents.

Saiga carbines are the perfect truck gun. Rugged, reliable, nothing pretty to worry about, powerful enough, and cheap (at least they were). They are, however, a little slow to deploy when someone's just thrown a brick through your window.

That's where the P90 comes in.

I've got something similar, Rossi synthetic stocked 12ga cut-down to 18"s. I also noticed something interesting when I took it to a Gun Show looking for accessories. The second reaction from most people was that it is intimidating. I think this is because of the imagery of so much power in a slim, light weight, short shotgun that its single shot capability implies will be carefully fired with intent to kill. The first reaction is of course "Is it legal?"

Thanks for the pics. Although I've seen this idea written about on here before, your post has sold me on the idea.

A few years back, another member (sm I think) posted some views on various advantages of single shot shotguns. The posts stuck with me and now seeing your post, well, I think I'll give this a shot for effectiveness in my purposes. At worst, it'll be fun, interesting, and low in cost. I like it.

Used to carry my M44 Mosin in my old full size bronco. I used a coated hook screwed through the floor with a nut cross threaded onto the end so I could pull the hook up and get the rifle loose.

Never bothered carrying a truck gun in anything else after that though. Never saw the point.

I should add that I keep a bag in my truck with 150 rounds of .22lr, 50 of .22mag, 50 of 9mm, 50 .357 mag, and .50 38sp. This allows me to always have extra ammo for my single six as well as for whichever gun I'm carrying. Just one extra level to always being prepared. This is separate from my GHB which stays in the tool box

To me a truck gun is a long gun that is always with you in your vehicle/truck. So, as far as my definition goes , I would have to say no I do not have a truck gun. I do, however, have a couple of handguns that stay in the vehicle all the time. There is a Smith and Wesson Lady Smith, model 60, 357 mag in the console and, there is a Glock 23 with extra loaded mags in a bag attached to the rear door of my Xterra. In addition to those two handguns I pretty much always have a long gun or two in the Vehicle with me. Currently there is an AR-15 with 5 loaded mags and a Hi-point 4095 with two mags in there as I type. I also always carry a 1911 with me on my person at all times so, currently, I guess you could say that I have 5 truck guns, depending on your definition. As far as my definition goes, I have no dedicated long guns but I always have a long gun with me. I always leave guns in my vehicle. I have the right to expect that they are safe when the vehicle is locked. I will not let others criminal behavior affect the way I live other than being armed at all times. If they get stolen I have more and they can be replaced. It would be no different than if they broke into my house.

I had a "truck gun" stolen from my truck in 1989 in an overnight vehicle burglary. It was a Taurus M66 revolver, and was recovered 2 1/2 years later.

I don't currently stow a "truck gun", but have entertained which of my guns would fall into that role (I have not ruled out resuming that practice with a gun that would be routinely retrieved from the vehicle.)

Among those up for consideration are that same Taurus revolver, a Hi-Point C9, a Grendel P-10, or a Phoenix HP-22A. That last one is the most-likely to ever take on that duty, but I do own more than one truck, so there may be more than one such gun.

I have carried a gun in my truck ever since I saw Reginald Denny drug out of his delivery truck during the L.A. riots and hit in the head with a brick. That guy is totally screwed up today.

I have carried just about every gun you can think of. My current favorite for about 4 years now has been a S&W model 65. I also have a Glenfield model 75c in 22lr with a spare 100 rounds. I have 24 rounds for the handgun in addition to the 6 in the cylinder.

We use to clean offices late at night and twice I have used a gun to encorage some nasty people to keep moving.

Before you cut down a nice single shot shotgun check out the H&R Tamer. I have the 20ga. Its nickle finished with a modified choke. It came with a goofy "snake charmer" style buttstock that I replaced with a standard rear stock. http://www.hr1871.com/Firearms/Shotguns/tamer.asp

Right now its beside the bed. I used to carry it in my Jon Boat. I called it my canoe gun. It has also spent time as a truck gun.

I also carry knives, hatchet and a machette plus fire making stuff.

When I get my truck later this month, I'll be looking for a truck gun as well. I daily carry a 9mm, so I'm considering a long gun. I've still got a Remington pre-model 11 auto loading shotgun on hold at the LGS (really should go get that) which I want to cut down to a Bonnie and Clyde whippet gun.
I think that will suffice as a decent truck gun, although its a bit slow to load and I can't legally keep it loaded. I don't consider a truck gun as an emergency piece, that's the CCW role, but more a firearm of opportunity.

Yup, i have an original snake charmer as a camp gun. Pretty fun little .410. With slugs or buck it make a decent SD gun. Mine is modified to carry extra shells.

You can buy similar stocks for the H&R. The H&Rs are cheap enough to chop down or you can buy an extra barrel to chop pretty cheap (particularly the 20 ga ones) on ebay.

Here it is with laser for point and shoot work. Lots of fun to shoot that way.

Over the years I have carried a variety of guns in my car/truck. Usually an old single shot 12 ga. shotgun or .22lr rifle.

In my view, something like the AR-7 survival rifle by Henry would be an excellent choice. Although a Hi-Point carbine also sounds good.

Currently I am carrying a Ruger Mini-14 in a hard case, behind the seat.

What about the ubiquitous double barrel shotgun as a truck gun? This cheap old 20 ga Wards Hercules has been sitting in my safe for decades. Basically a $20 yard sale gun. Nice thing is they break down just by popping off the forearm. Real tempted to cut the barrels to 18". Whole package would only be 18" long. Double the firepower of my cut down single shots.

I don't leave a gun in the car in FL. It comes from my living most of my life , 45 years in NY, and your car get's broken in to or stolen, "if not in a parking garage", and even there it's not safe. Also in NYC, my carry permit stated that you were not to leave your gun in the car unless you are in the car. "the polar opposite of FL". So I just don't do it, having a decent car, it is a target for thieves.
Being in a gated and patrolled community with low crime rates, didn't stop a gang of kids from breaking into 22 vehicle's in 1 night. It's not worth having to explain it to the cops, so I just carry on my person, spare ammo in the vehicle.

Stevens 520 Takedown. Resides under the back tray in my '05 Grand Cherokeehttp://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r197/adam11082/5BFE11D2-914B-4970-A27D-21C96E9EE1EB-12745-0000091D825140EB.jpg
That reminds me of a 12 ga. M97 shotgun my dad used to carry in his truck. The barrel was 20" and had no choke.

He routinely carried hundreds of dollars from a restaurant till back and forth from our house everyday and made one trip to the bank once a week. He was a WW2 combat vet and everyone who knew him knew that he was never very far from that shotgun. The gun went almost every where he did. It came into the house every night and went in the truck every morning. He kept it in the kitchen of his restaurant during the day.

That was a truck gun. It's in my safe right now.

Closer look at the Wards Hercules. Basically it is a low end Stevens though I don't know what model. I doubt if it is worth much more than $100 but I will try not to cut it.:D

My truck gun for years was a 10mm EAA witness. Cheap accurate and reliable power for what I was dealing with. Now when I take the truck it is a glock 20. Less stuff to rust in the glock!

I travel by car all over the Southwest. My car is newer and has enough spares and gear (get home bag) that I could live out of it for a couple of weeks in an emergency. While I prefer a Holiday Inn Express (haha) in a pinch I could survive using gear that is in my trunk.

While I own a bunch of older rifles and handguns I've decided that I want enough firepower in a couple of modern firearms. I have cases for my 2 choices that don't look like gun cases. That way pulling into a motel for the night I can off load with my other luggage without disturbing guests in the lobby...hehe.

My choice is my Glock 20SF in 10MM and my Glock 20 Mech Tech Carbine conversion. Incredible portability and firepower. Both use the same ammo.

I never leave these firearms alone in the car. In areas I travel you can expect trouble with thieves boosting items out of vehicles and I couldn't sleep much thinking about this.

Probably in rural areas this wouldn't be as much of a concern.

Excellent kit, makes sense if you travel as you do.

Oceanbob, your approach is like I had in my truck working west texas. I always had enough supplies to go a while in the back in action packers. That way I could empty the truck into a hotel room pretty quickly.

Good job on the 10mms. Same as I am doing today (g20 that is).
