    I'm just curious who carries a long gun in their trunk all the time and potential situations it would be useful in to them.

    On the farm we do, its a old Winchester .22 rifle with a K3 Weaver scope on the top of it. Used for livestock or anything else that needs a bullet at the time.
     
  3. I don't but I'd like to be able to find a way to conceal something in my Jeep. I don't want to stash something under the seat or anything because anyone who broke in to steal anything would find it. I'm thinking I could stash a handgun behind one of my interior panels in the back. Unless the Jeep was stolen and stripped nobody would find it, and I could still get to it easily. I wish I could come up with a place like that to store a rifle though.

    I would do it if I lived in a more rural community, but living in the city I would feel uncomfortable with the idea since someone stealing it/my truck would always be in the back of my mind. My uncle lives in BFE Idaho and always keeps a beater SKS in his truck.

    10/22 most of the time.

    .243 700 anytime shit gets serious.

    I usually end up leaving my 10/22 in my trunk for a few weeks after taking it out to shoot, but that's just because I'm lazy and don't really need it in the house for anything.

    Legally, I would be able to, but I'd rather not deal with the hassle if I was pulled over. Fucking state sucks!

    Back when SKSs were cheap, I considered one for a truck gun. Nothing I have now would fit the requirements for a truck gun:

    1.) Inexpensive to replace
    2.) Reliable
    3.) Good sights/accurate
    4.) Cheap to feed.

    I have a .22 that stays in the truck box. It is a brazilian made knockoff knockoff of a nylon 66. Cost me $50 and so far has gone bang everytime I pull the trigger.

    Never clean it, scared it might not work after that.

    I keep my BCM backup rifle in my trunk.

    Mostly because I might get the bug to go shooting any day, and sometimes I get stuck on the wrong side of the water when traffic gets REALLY bad.

    Ever think of using some sort of plastic storage bin from say walmart or something? I use the shit out of those for everything, and they make them in about every imaginable shape and size combo..

    As for the OP - No I don't keep a rifle in my trunk. I have hatchback, and really no where to conceal it. If I come up with a way I might try to find a cheap lever gun and throw one in there, or maybe my old bolt action 410...

    yeah that's what I currently use for mine, one of those really low profile ones but is the full length of the rear cargo area. just was thinking something more like a gun case that would either stand up or lay down, covered in black carpet (the stuff people use for homemade sub woofer boxes) or something. but you're right, that option of yours is probably the easiest

    My AMD-65 usually rides with me, it folds up small, I built it for like $200 and it's reliable. I almost always have a handgun on me, but the AK is more for taking care of animals I may hit or encounter.

    Sweet. I generally have my AMD in my pickup. Cased and unloaded, technically should be legal here in OR. Plus it is NOT readily available while seated, or anywhere in the truck for that matter.

    Yes.
    I only use my truck for hunting, fishing and cruising around on logging roads.
    Most of the time the sks is behind the seat. During moose/deer season the .338 goes along for the ride as well.
