    How would you have an ar-15 in a truck. I live in Illinois so a gun has to be inclosed in a case and unloaded. So i was wondering under these circumstances how would you have the gun in your truck?

    Just keep the gun enclosed in the case and keep the magazine unloaded. What are you stumbling over? Do you not have enough room in the cab (S10 or similar small truck)?

    Yes a s10 so there is not much room at all.

    My recommendation (if it is legal) would be to either forego the AR-15 and get a good pistol and pistol safe to lock it in OR get a hard Tonneau cover for your truck and make a rack or holder of some kind to keep the case in one spot.

    It is legal to put it in the glove box or similar place. It just has to be enclosed in something.

    They make a small pistol lock-box that comes with a cable. I routed mine beneath my seat so I can take off my pistol when I am going into a building that does not permit carry. In your case you could easily put a pistol in it and keep the ammo separate. Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/Secure-It-Handgun-Storage-Safe/dp/B000HBB15U

    IMO, a gun that you would keep habitually in a truck (or any vehicle, but especially a truck) should be an inexpensive throwaway, something that you wouldn't mind losing. I don't think an AR-15 would qualify as that, unless it's a real beater. I transport guns in vehicles only for specific purposes. They are much safer and more secure to keep at home.

    dbrown, What is wrong with placing the AR-15 in a soft case and putting it behind the front seat. I know in even a small truck such as a S-10 there is room behind the front seat even if you have the seat all the way back.:confused:
