Carry my S&W M&P .45 and My Winchester model 1894 in 30-30. In California your pistol needs to be locked up whats nice is my truck has a locking center console so no worries there. But the dumb thing about it is your mags and ammo all need to be separate form each other and the gun. So basically if someone pulls a gun on me I will just ask them nicely to let me get my mags, ammo, and gun out.

i have the same one, i put it up for sale recently, but i kinda like it because it is pretty accurate compared to the stories i hear about other gibbs, the recoil is pretty bad though...i am afraid to put a scope on it, but i still love it and thinking about keeping it, it does make an excellent truck gun, i have another magazine for it on the way, mine had some feeding problems but i fixed it.

Older thread but still pertinent. Lets define truck gun. A firearm that you leave in your truck in case you need it. Something that can take some inside the cab abuse from dirt, weather, and moisture. I would have to have something like a model 92 Rossi in 45 LC stainless.

Truck Gun

I do live in the country (cattle country) and occasionally run across coyotes; I carry a scoped Ruger Blackhawk in .30 carbine. I get pretty clean kills at 100 yards +/- shooting 90gr XTP handloads. I used to carry a 10" .30 Herrett scoped Contender but I like the follow-up shot with a revolver, if I need it.
(still have the Contender)

Something that works, your familiar with, and can do work when you need it. Can't hit nothing if your not good with your equipment. We have coyotes all over around here. You can hear them off in the distance. My 45 Colt lever gun will take good care of them. And so will your Blackhawk.

I'm glad I don't drive cross country any more; with all of the laws it would be a nightmare to carry! Hell I was worried enough coming cross country with a U-Haul towing my jeep and everything I own in the back! I looked at the CCW recip. map and it was like a checkerboard, every other state was a no, so I just locked everything up in the back and hit the road. 3 days later I was in Utah and free... and breathed a sigh of relief as I unlocked my PPK. I felt totally naked while travelling, but maintained a high awareness level (as always) without incident.

We call a truck gun around here a short barrel that is easy to move around in the cab. As long as it will be legal. I like the 243 it is a good all round caliber all so my Dan Wesson 375.

Mine's a Mossberg 590 Special Purpose. Speedfeed stock loaded with breaching rounds, side saddle has slugs, and the sling has extra OO buck. It holds nine in the tube, and I keep the tube loaded with OO buck. My wife's vehicle has a Remington model 48. It has been cut down to 18 3/4", and Duracoated satin black. It has a side saddle loaded with OO buck, and it has four OO buck in it's tube. The sling holds more OO buck. We both carry concealed handguns everyday as well.

I'd like to think the ideal truck gun, has some range, and can punch through car doors and other barriers. That would leave out handgun rounds and even buckshot. Some of us remember the hype about the .357 Mag. when State troopers began using them. The rounds would penetrate clean through a car from end to end, go clean through the engine block, etc. That hasn't been the case in my experience. When roaming the desert outside of Phoenix, Las Vegas, Saint George and other places, I've run across abandoned cars that had been shot up, and I did some testing of my own. I set up cardboard silhouettes in the seats and shot from various angles with 10mm 180 gr. FMJ, .45 auto hardball, .44 mag 260 gr. Keith style bullets and others. Most shots would not make it through a door unless they missed the window linkage and crash bars, and engine block shots just made a splatter mark on the block or just barely cracked it. The 5.56mm, 7.62x39 and 7.62x51 actually can shoot through the car and do it regularly, although the 5.56mm is not as reliable as the .30 cals. As far as the guy above that carries the Taurus Judge with bird shot, I hope that if you ever have to shoot someone with it, that he's not hiding behind anything and is within hand shaking distance or he'll just be pissed off.

If you need an Ak47 in your car to feel safe maybe you should move to a new neighborhood, Just sayin..
You don't have a truck, and you wouldn't have a gun in it if you did. Whats the point of your post?

I think Emptyclips was missing the point of the truck gun. Truck or no truck. It's about having something available when you need it. My dad carries a Handy Rifle in .223 in a special holster on his tractor. He isn't worried about two legged animals, but those pesky four legged ones. It will do if he meets a two legged one as well. He also has a holster for his chain saw.

I will find you one. The problem is if you put your saw in the bucket or else where on your tractor it gets bumped around or fulls off. You need a place for it. The holster is just three sheets of plywood with a space in the middle for your blade that is permanently attached to the side of the tractor. Just slip the blade in and head out. Hard to get a picture this time of year, but I will look around for one. Two below and lots of snow.
