A “truck gun” is a gun left in your vehicle all the time. It is a bad idea. It is.
But, if you can’t have a CHL or a loaded gun in your car, it is still a bad idea.
What am I saying?
It is a bad idea.
BUT not having a gun is a bad idea too.
See the laws denying you and me a loaded gun are horrible laws.
They put us in legal and mortal jeopardy.
In my Ohio context, and your state may be different, I can have an unloaded gun in passenger compartment. It MUST meet legal
Definition of unloaded.
For me there is another problem too. I don’t want some scumbag stealing my gun and using it to hurt someone or even themself.
But I also don’t want to be without a gun or have to keep taking it to and from car.
That increases chances of bad things happening.
So to where I am going….
Taurus makes guns that can be locked so they won’t function….
There are also gun locks for most guns that render them unusable, to a point.
I hear many people say an inexpensive gun is a good truck gun because of its low cost if stolen. That is INSUFFICIENT.
We don’t want a scumbag stealing our guns.
CHLs are tyranny and cause lots of problems, way more than they solve.
Train. Know your laws and if you can only have an unloaded gun, you better be able to get to it and load it fast when you need it.
But honestly, most of time you won’t be able to.
In other words, because of CHL and other tyranny, you will probably die without a defensive firearm.
You cops and politicians with your damn gun control tyranny make the world much less Safe!
I am left with no choice but to mitigate the danger you bastards create.
I train for my sitrep. I equip for same. I have no other choice.
I have no gun in my car now. I won’t either until I work this out.
I don’t want a scumbag stealing a gun from me.
Also, CHL holders better consider these notions too. Leaving a loaded gun in you car or even an unloaded one is a bad idea!
But the damn “genius” cops and politicians still make you do it.
For example, if you are carrying and must enter an area where guns are prohibited, you must leave your gun in your car. We have already established that is a bad idea.
Criminals are opportunistic. If they see you leave your firearm in your vehicle, and they can get it, they will.
Or if they see you handling your piece, and you are oblivious to your surroundings, they may just come and take it from you.
See all these damn laws force you to reveal and handle your gun in public.
That is a bad idea!
Not to mention, criminals don’t follow gun laws anyway.
The only things gun laws do is place good people in danger!
It is all they do.
Cops and politicians endanger us all.
Support them and their bull shit at your own peril.
You cops and politicians are a menace to society. You really are.
Also, being in a car is almost always an extreme tactical disadvantage to begin with! Your fields of vision and mobility are extremely compromised.
Hell, look at all the cops being executed in their cars. And they have their guns on their hip.
See people feel way to safe in their vehicles. Truth is they are death traps.
Being in a vehicle is a bad place to be under fire. Often times your only option will be to return fire and that better be fast.
I have other options I am considering.
I suggest you get some type of armor and shielding cops.
Everyone. You are in danger in your vehicle, armed or not.
You better train and equip for surviving in your vehicle and it better be more than just having a firearm.
I told you all to give shields to cops, and you should, it would greatly increase their odds of survival.
I am currently building a shield system for such deployments.
Cars don’t stop most rounds. Cars cannot outrun any round. Nope.
I don’t like cops really. I do try to save them though.
Train and equip your cops to egress their vehicles tactically. Body armor alone won’t do it. You need shields too.
Egress won’t always be possible so shields used in conjunction with body armor will help.
Body armor is static. It does not cover all areas. Shields can be moved to provide additional protection.
They can buy cops time to move and return fire!
If cop can’t move, they can move shield in a manner to buy time to return fire while providing required protection from perp’s rounds.
Also, I have told you to build protection into cop’s cars!
It would save many cops.
The poor bastards are sitting ducks.
I am not without empathy for cops.
I guarantee you I put more thought into saving cops than cops put into saving me.
