My truck gun for going into unfriendly states or Canada is an inexpensive Turkish pump action 12 gauge. It's a simple reliable gun that is good to 100 meters depending on the target size.?.........
I have a A Texas CHL and out of state Florida and Arizona licences .I'm also lucky to have a magical nation wide CHL to include NYC, Wash DC, NJ California all other prohibited states.
Hope this helps .
Yup. I have one (18") and like it a lot. Just wish Ruger went with PMags M3's instead of a proprietary magazine ...I’m surprised that the Ruger Gunsite scout hasn’t been mentioned more. It fits the bill. .308 (7.62x51), bolt action, detachable magazine shortish barrel options (16 and 18”). I just traded a m1a for one due to moving to a states that isn’t towards friendly towards firearms. Great general purpose rifle.
I am not much of a com-block guy, but I love this PAP and I tend to run it as my truck gun. I fear the day I ever have to use it because 762 out of a 10" barrel with a gnarly brake will likely make the ears bleed, but that will be the least of my worries should that day ever come. It packs away nicely with the VZ58 side folder and ammo is cheap.
Which shim do you have under that VZ stock?
