Thread: Truck Gun

  1. #1

    Default Truck Gun

    Two questions:

    1) What do you use for a truck gun?

    2) How do you secure and/or conceal it?

    Mine is about to get zeroed. It's a Chinese SKS with a Hogue side-folder so it is very compact. I've got 3 - 30 rd. steel mags and 3 - 20 rd. composite mags (Tapco). I'm almost done with my work on the gun; now I have to find a way to securely mount it so it's accessible but not easily removed in the event of a truck break-in.

    A gun to keep in the truck, in the event it is ever expedient to have one. There's a bunch of stuff on YouTube related to the guns, but not so much how people handle mounting, securing and concealing in a truck.

    I keep my PT845 with zombie loads in the center console and a .380 under the driver seat.

    I use one of those finger combo slim safes that fit neatly under the driver's seat, which is cabled in, when I have to leave my gun in the truck...other than that, I have a CCW permit.

    I'm thinking more along the lines of this: http://www.guns.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/197.jpeg

    The idea being something mounted but reasonably concealed or inaccessible so it meets legal requirements. Locked/secure as I intend to use either a .223/5.56 or 7.62X39 (most likely as I have a compact SKS) that I don't want to make easy for someone to walk away with.

    I have one of those - nice 'lil bulldog vault that takes care of things at the office where my CPL doesn't apply.

    All I have is a mosberg 158 .22 rifle at the moment. I'm fond of the sks and glocks .45. As for where to put them, idk. Never had one to keep in the truck.
