I bought a Maverick 12ga w/ 18in barrel new in about 1993. I now have a better HD shotgun, so this one rides in the trunk 24/7. That said, the vehicle is garage kept, and is locked in an access-controlled parking lot while at work. The gun isn't worth more than $50 on the market anyway, so I might as well tote it around. My daily carry is a G19, with one extra hi-cap mag and one G18 33 round mag (with a Glock +2 extension) in the vehicle.

Although I've carried each kind, I've come to favor a rifle cartridge over a shotgun or pistol carbine round for a truck gun. If another vehicle is involved, shooting through cover is a distinct possibility. A rifle round will accomplish this easier and can place a precision shot if needed easier than the shotgun. An exception to the pistol carbines are of course the .41/.44 mags.

Most times, my Glock 32 rides in the console/glovebox of my pickup. Once in a while, my SKS or 30-30 come along too.

As a plumber, I ran into an incidend where I wish I had my carry gun with me. I was lucky to get out unharmed. Now I keep a gun in my truck at all times and it's usually my S&W model 36 snubby revolver, 5 rounds of Fed personal defense ammo and two speed-loaders right next to it.

Sorry, Guys...

My conceal carry permit is a license to secure myself, NOT my car! My 1911 is for me, NOT for my car, trunk or cab.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, when my 1911 leaves my hip or my hand, it is unloaded. Every single time. The gun is for me. It exists to secure me. When I have it, it works. When I don't have it, it doesn't work.
- Honor is a wonderful and glorious thing... until it gets you killed!

- Why is it that we fire 1,000 rounds and know that we need more practice, but yet we punch a bag 10 times and think we know how to fight?

- When in doubt, train, train, train...
