We’ve all heard the term, even used it. This topic isn’t going to be about legalities, rather practicality.
If you’re keeping one in your vehicle, say for extended amounts of time, how are you going to do it? Lets say you live where it can be -20F or colder in the winter. How do you prepare for frost/moisture? Storing the ammo that goes with it? How often do you clean and oil to keep storage issues from developing? How about the magazines? Optics?
A coworker and I got on the topic of patrol rifles kept in cruisers and we got to wondering how the police around here get around those things. The two we were able to ask so far are fanatical in keeping their firearms clean and oiled and will not store their patrol rifles in their cruisers. They have admitted that others do, but they won’t ask what they do for fear of being appalled by the answer. So we got to wondering if there are realistic ways to do just that.
