Damn right, looks like it should have a truck gun like this:
I have yet to find anywhere that is free of crime. Being in law enforcement I find most people simply dont know about how much crime is taking place in their area.You need to move to a better part of this great country. Can't remember the last time I bothered to lock the door to the house or garage.
That's probably true in florida as a whole, I can tell you that in my town the B&E and burglary rates are way down compared to vegas or reno, just another reason I love my area and wouldn't live anywhere else, my neighborhood has had 2 vehicle burglaries in the last year and both were a 16 year old who was caught, before that it's been years since and a home burglary hasn't happened nearby here for years!I have yet to find anywhere that is free of crime. Being in law enforcement I find most people simply dont know about how much crime is taking place in their area.
For the sake of discussion, or at least one of the tangents of this discussion, I think the question of what is a truck gun is pertinent.
I had always believed:
-A truck gun is not a pistol, as that's something for on body (even if you stow it in the vehicle)
*As is often the case in discussions here and elsewhere some folks tend to drift towards pistols a great deal which is interesting to me since a pistol is far less useful than a long gun for most situations but that's a different discussion.
-A truck gun should be cheap enough that it bouncing around in a vehicle isn't a problem since it isn't an investment safe queen. Derivations of this include being cheap enough that if the unfortunate occurs and it is stolen or seized it isn't a significant loss.
-A truck gun should be handy; ie it can be accessed if needed but as discreet as possible based off your common environment.
Other obvious things like reliability, ease of ammo acquisition, etc all come to mind but are just facets.
Maybe I'm just off base, but the above is generally what I started with when answering what I use as a truck gun.

I've seen S&W M&P 15 versions going for similarly low prices lately as well. It seems to be relatively easy to get affordable AR15s the last year or more. Gun sales are still staying high in recent years. They soared in 2008 and haven't really slackened much. Articles earlier this year show Americans are buying over 2 million firearms a MONTH. Nov-Dec and Apr-May are the typical annual spikes, but the overall year over year numbers keep climbing more sharply, the last 10yrs+A “good friend of mine” who’s retired military was able to buy a very nice DPMS tactical rifle at the PX last year for under $400, FWIW.
But seriously, I get the aesthetic of one but practicality is nearly zero.
This whole thread is full of Fudd crap. And it exceptionally tiering
Everyone in here should have a striker fired double stack 9mm in either compact or full size. Only from a reliable platform like Glock, S&W M&P, HK, FN, or even Sig.
The only exception should be a rifle in moose and bear country.
And if you leave your gun in the truck, you’re a problem.
Don’t be a DA. Don’t leave your gun in a vehicle you’re not in.

I didn’t say that in the least.So, to paraphrase your response...a rifle isn't practical for defense and 9mm handguns are "where it's at"?
I would imagine your opinion on this matter might be considered to be an odd point of view to a lot of people. Clint Smith for instance might disagree with you.
Or, was this post a joke?
I will say though, the only firearm I've ever lost was stolen out of my vehicle while I was at work. What I learned is that you NEVER leave a pistol in your car unattended. Unless it's made out of plastic. If you are lucky...someone WILL steal it.
