    The old "2-3 rds per gunfight" stat oft cited is WRONG.

    It includes suicides, ADs, warning shots, animal put downs, etc. all of which typically involve only one shot total being fired. And many of those circumstances have nothing to do with an actual gunfight.

    Anything you leave in a car will get stolen so pick the gun you wount miss if someone steals it.

    You got that right, brother Kodefour. I carry a G17 with 17 rounds of 115gr JHP +p+ rounds. I hope to never have to reload with my spare 16-round magazine.

    Allowing a handgun to get into the hands of a criminal is not acceptable. I don't lock up my guns only to avoid financial loss but to keep from being part of the problem. Retaining your weapon is a huge part of firearm ownership responsibility.

    If you will leave a gun in the car keep it secure. Secure is subjective. Where I live that means locking your car and avoiding things that would draw attention to the fact that you are a gun owner. Most other places a locking car safe will be needed to secure a weapon properly.

    I dont understand the point that a gun car is bound to be stolen. I mean how often your car is broken into? My car has never been broken into and i also do not keep weapon visible "if" left in the vehicle.

    This is humorous. You guys do not know squat about a gunfight yet you sing away as if you were a bird. These threads go on and on and are almost always perpetrated by a troll or someone with the mentality of a troll. Semi-auto versus Sixgun. . .

    I have read this tripe ad nauseum. Why? Masochistic, I suppose.

    Guys run amok grabbing whatever stat they can find and regurgitate them w/o ever thinking about them. NYPD shooting stats? Please. Some could not hit a bull with a bass fiddle.

    Another guy is going to only shoot as a last resort to neutralize. Yeah, okay. Walk into a room on someone who has just beaten your wife to death and then get back to me. . . but, then again, based on the posts I see here, it wouldn't surprise if you retreated and dialed 9-1-1.

    The spray and pray mentality seems to have displaced the old mentality of being a marksman, even under duress. Odd, though, as it seems me that the 14 round 9mm has been around longer than the .357 magnum. I suppose it takes decades to sink in.

    To each his/her own.

    I think I'll stop torturing my eyes with this stuff, too old for it.

    You guys keep hashing it around. Adios

    Survey says...

    .
    Glock


    Has any firearms manufacturer ever specifically made a car gun?

    I know some have made trail guns, target pistols, pocket guns... but has anyone ever made a car gun?

    Just about any gun can be a car gun in my opinion. Some will be better choices than others, for sure.

    As far as a manufacturer to specify in print that a certain model is designed for being a car or truck gun, I'm sure manufacturers don't need any anti-gunners to get all wound up on thinking about all the "car guns" out there.

    Could be stolen, just like a stereo, laptop, phone, wheels, or the whole car.

    If I felt the need for a "car gun" It would be a AR15 or AR10 with a 10" barrel.

    For starters, I don't drive a car. I drive a truck. My truck doesn't have opposable thumbs. I doubt it would be a very good shot?

    Or, do you mean a gun for shooting cars? When are they in season?

    Seriously, it's irresponsible to leave a gun in a car. Ask my stepfather, retired LEO, he kept a .45 in his. Wonder where it is now? You know, since it was stolen.

    Except that a stereo, laptop, phone or wheels aren't typically used to kill someone.

    That's not what I said, but you know that.

    If you want to keep a gun unsecured in the car, you're an irresponsible fool.

    At least secure it if you're going to do it.

    It seems this one has run its course.
