Having some more goodies in the vehicle only serves to streamline the process.

We usually drive a hatchback, so no trunk. The Rossi 20 gauge/.22LR combo is perfect for the tight confines of our daily driver.

Image

There's even room for a couple of boxes of ammo and you can still get the bag zipped up.

Image

It's light and small and doesn't attract any attention until its time to snap it together. The short stock and barrel make for better handling in tight spaces. And once July first gets here (85 minutes to go!) it is legal to take to (just about) any Hoosier employer's parking lot.

Ah, I see, I digress then. That is an excellent choice of a gun to keep in your vehicle, haha.

Mossberg 500 Cruiser, newly designated trunk/back seat gun. I only like to give her the best, Buckshot and she's accompanied by a box of target load just in case I get that sudden itch to go to the range.

Heres my "trunk gun", a true franken-shotty. No part of this gun is from the same original gun, it aint perty but it runs as smooth as you please. I have parts enough to build two more guns if I want, but I took the best parts and made one good runner.

Graphic example of the difference between Parkerized finish and Blued, showing just how non reflective parkerizing really is.

I'll re finish the whole thing one day but it's not a priority, it works perfectly, so I'm not too concerned how it looks.

Speaking of trunk guns, I just took the Marlin 336 out of the trunk, inspected, certified it in good working order without finish damage, and put it back.

I made sure to pack 6 rounds of 170 grain 30-30 and 14 rounds of 150 grain 30-30, in the buttstock storage wallet/pouch.

A little CLP wipe-down on the receiver, barrel, and mag tube, and it's ready for service for another month, until I re-certify it next month.

then an explination would have been better than roley eyes. il admit iv never heard of registration stickers, only paper registration forms. iv seen stickers that indicate the YEAR the reg expires ( here in MA its on the top right of your rear plate) but its accompanied by a form with the owners name, address, vehicle make, model, reg/plate number, VIN etc.
Texas has stickers, they are on the windshield right next to the inspection sticker.

BUT...

You still have to show proof of insurance, so you STILL have to open the glove box...

in my state i cannot have a long gun in my trunk

however, i have a CPL, so i can carry pistols.

the thing is, my state also has a weird overall length statute, any any rifle or shotgun that falls below a certain length must be registered as a pistol.

my main trunk gun is an over-folder Mossberg 500 (w/Knoxx Spec-Ops folder).

sometimes i have a PS90 5.7x28mm carbine in the car, but i don't keep it there all the time. its just too expensive to do that.

but if i'm feeling extra sprightly, the PS90 in an Assault Systems case fits behind the passenger seat very nicely.

both the 500 and PS90 are considered pistols by my state and are registered with the state police as pistols.

also, i always have a SIG in a Wilderness Safepacker that threads thru my seat-belt while driving. Easy access, but still secure and discreet.

I like ur trunk gun and want to know MOAR!

Is that an AMD 65? Is it SBR'd? If so, how?

I keep a Safepacker in each vehicle, they come in very handy. Also use them while bush-hogging or riding the ATVs: very discreet and keeps most of the dust and dirt off the handguns.

Moar infos, please. Is that a dedicated .22 upper, or a factory-built .22? If I'm unclear, what I'm asking is this: since the gun has no buffer, I'm wondering if it's a normal AR lower with a .22 upper installed, and presumably some kind of plug threaded into the buttstock threads, or if it's a whole gun built from the factory as a .22. Also, who makes it, etc.

I stopped someone late one night who kept a revolver in his glove box. It is an understatement when I say my heart just about jumped out of my chest when I saw his hand touching that .357 :shock: Needless to say, after things settled down, we had a loooong talk about how telling the officer there is a gun in the glove box before reaching in there is a good idea.

I would hate for myself or another officer to shoot a law abiding citizen just because they don’t have the commonsense to keep their damn dick-skinners away from a loaded gun while dealing with LEOs.

FYI - I don’t mean to compare donjulio to this joker I stopped.
Here's an idea, citizen: You know the place in your ride where you keep your firearm? Keep your damn registration and POI somewhere far away from there.

I keep my PF-9 in the center console. My papers(how dare you Nazis ask for my papers? RAAAAACISTS!! :lol: )are in one of the roof pockets(depending on your vehicle, they can be in a dash pocket, door pocket, glovebox, whatever). Should I be pulled over, I will present the required paperwork, and will go nowhere near the center console.

That way, my firearm is always at hand should it be required, but the officer pulling me over doesn't have an Oh Shit moment that takes 10 years off his life. Everyone's happy.

This concludes your Common Sense 101 course for today.

CMMG AR15 Lower w/ Spikes Tactical .22LR buffer plug. The upper is a normal AR15 upper w/ an 11.5" 1x7 twist barrel. I know that 1x7 isn't ideal for .22LR but at the distance I use it at I'm not concerned with it, and for some reason I have better accuracy with 1x7 twist barrel shooting subsonics through my suppressor. I built it, as in I put everything together - I didn't machine the lower & upper. The rail system is a daniel defense... omega, I want to say. Still waiting on my SBR stamp to come back so I can throw a folding stock and front grip on it.

It's one of a few of my toys. I generally don't have the EOTech on there, but I did for the picture. My intentions are for it to be as light weight and mobile as possible... although the suppressor does make it pretty front-end heavy. Although .22LR might not be the prime choice for a lot of people, it's not my primary weapon system, and I like the fact that there's no recoil and I can put 30 rounds quickly at my target, while moving.
Any more Q's feel free to ask! :)

Being that I got one cheap ($0), I threw an SKS in my trunk. I'm thinking about a Keltec SU16 or similar since it'll work in my GHB, but I don't want to buy a gun I wouldn't normally want to shoot.
