    Truck gun

    I wasn't sure where to put this and as I suspect we all have an opinion on the matter mods please move to appropriate area if you feel this is in the wrong place.

    What's your idea/ideal truck gun?
    What's in your truck/car?
    The perimeters are very loose ;guess what I'm asking is what do you keep going. The vehicle to deal with what ever you are likely to encounter? Be that injured livestock,shot opportunity on a game animal,pest/varmint removal, hordes of flesh eating clowns from mars.
    What have you or the factory done to make it elements proof? How did you come to the choice you made?

    Rossi 92 carbine, 44 mag. Williams ghost ring receiver sight for quick target acquisition. Short, fast and powerful.

    16 inch AR 15, a 1911 and a Ruger MK2 target, handles everything that I have ran into

    I was thinking 1894 Marlin in 44 mag. Shot shells for reptiles. Marlin has a better scope mount system than Rossi.

    TAURUS 709 SLIM BLACK 9MM 3-INCH 7RD FIXED SIGHTS and a extra mag.

    This gun was highly rated at gun test magazine and I have less than $200.00 in

    Grab a gun has then for 185.00 shipped about $10.00 more than I paid

    People may laugh, but a mildly bubbaed Carcano M38 cavalry carbine in 7.35 and a pocketful of clips. It shoots a mystery 170 gr round nose jacketed bullet ridiculously good, and goes with me every time I go out to our property (wooded with short sight lines). Picked it because it was accurate, foolproof, disposable, lightweight, and handy.

    For years it was either my Rem 870 Wingmaster 20 ga or my ruger 10/22 with a full sized Bushnell banner 3x9x40 scope. Deer rifle scope, no wimpy stuff. Knock 12 ga hulls at 75 yards every time, laying down flat not standing up.

    Now, I have a Hipoint Carbine in both 9mm and .40sw either would do very well as a truck gun. Slap in a mag and walk.

    I have a Yugo SKS that would also work in that role.

    And I have a Win 94 AE in old reliable dirty thirty that would do very well.

    I always preferred magazine fed for truck guns though. Was just simpler to load and unload.

    A 16" M94 AE 30-30 Saddle ring Carbine is my main truck gun. It wears a Williams peep rear sight and Firesight front. It's light and fast handling...powerful enough and well suited for my needs.

    Circa 1970 "Plain Jane" Remington Model 760 with iron sights in .30-06, for which I paid 100.oo. - It lives, in a "sleeve" on the seat-back, behind the seat on my PU.

    With tongue in cheek...

    It all depends on where I'm taking the truck that day.

    Danged. My idea of a beat up old single barrel shotgun doesn't seem to be in favor here. But, it sure works on rattlesnakes and skunks. The other is a generic .22 LR rifle. Used to see this combo in the racks on pickups on main street all the time. Windows down too. Different time. But, there is a tool for every job.

    Rattlesnake Charlie,

    Fwiw, I carry a box of 150 grain GCCB "deer loads" & a box of small-game PBCB loads for "the small stuff" in the truck's glove box, 24/365.
    BOTH work fine out of my cheap/old pump-rifle.

    yours, tex

    Chopped down Savage axis 30/06 with a 2.5 power shotgun scope. Friend of mine's uncle who is a FFL got into a factory offering when the Axis I was being phased out in favor of the Axis II's. I think we paid $170 each after all was said and done but we had to take a dozen....and I regret only getting the one...wish I would have got 3 or 4...ah well.

    So nobody worries about the truck being broken into and the gun boosted?
