Does anyone else carry a truck gun or a long rifle with them in their vehicle on the daily as an emergency option? Times are changing and I like to have the option to hunker down and defend if I can’t escape. Situations like Dayton, El Paso, the recent freeway shooting etc. As a last resort, I like the ability to match fire power and distance.
I have been considering that as a get home gun just can’t make up my mind about a pistol caliber carbine or an ar pistol in 5.56. I kind of like the CZ Scorpion EVO carbine.
For me, outside the home I’d definitely go with a rifle caliber over pistol caliber
Yes, with multiple loaded magazines, along with a range bag, a medical bag, a tool bag and a bag full of miscellaneous stuff that comes in handy at times. I keep a carbine with magazines interchangeable with my EDC.
Yup, I have always kept a “disposable” gun in most every vehicle I drove except the ones that went on base. I say “disposable” simply for the reason someone stated earlier on a different thread. “If you are involved in a shooting they will confiscate your firearm, Probably for a long time.”
Usually it was some form of AR-15 since they are cheap and mags/ammo is plentiful. Used to keep a an 18" .308 bolt gun in my truck for trips to the farm but it was not mag fed and as such created issues getting it into action. Started keeping an AR-47 instead.
This takes me back to the days when we had gun racks and a shotgun in our trucks at all times.
Yes, daily i have two truck handgus, a .45 in easy reach and a .38 for snakes since i travel in snake country. Also several on our security team at church have ARs in vehicles at church.
Welcome to the group @Jeffrey12! what’s your favorite flavor of .45?
My truck .45 is kahr
Depending on the season and which truck I’m in there will be a an Ar in .260 Rem, or 5.56, an M1A in 7.62N or a Mini 14 in 6.8SPC within reach.
There’s usually a long range center fire bolt gun as well which could be anything from a .260 Rem to a 300 RUM or 375 Ruger.
I tend to buy them in pairs so I can keep identical rifles in each vehicle similar to how I pair my handguns.
