Just wondering what some of the other Forum members use as their truck or car gun. I keep a stainless S&W Model 645, but I'm thinking about adding a Stoeger Coach gun in 20 ga. What's yours?

Ive changed my truck gun out a few times but its often an inexpensive yet ultra reliable firearm most times its been a revolver.

Kel Tech PMR-30 with two full magazines. When travelling away from home, Chiappa 1887 12 ga and my 627-5 with both 357 mag and 38 spec. and sometimes the another favorite to shoot when visit ranges. Usually PMR-30 in 22 mag is always with me.

Glock model 27 with an extra mag is my daily carry. Wife carries a new Glock 43 with a spare mag a well.
My shop gun is a EEA Zastava Serbia 9mm with TWO extra mags, just because I can.
Shed gun is a Mossberg 500 20 gauge loaded with buckshot.
House gun is a Mossberg 500 12 gauge with a few mods, loaded with 00, as well as my daily carry.

P.S. Every. Single. One. has a round in the chamber.

Since I carry a handgun all of the time I sometimes slip a Marlin lever action in 30-30 or .22 magnum under the saddle blanket in my truck.

I miss the gun and acts in the back window. Not very good place to have to in a pinch and now days open invitation to theft.

Currently my 1908 vest pocket. But next purchase after my RPR and optics will most likely be an S&W Governor. Alternating 45 Colt and 410 defense loads, should have a little more stopping power than my 25ACP.

I usually have two. Model 19 S&W 2.5 barrel and my Mini 14 with 20 rounder in it. I live in a very rural area so the rifle comes in handy from time to time.

Truck gun

for the money I don't think you can beat a Sig sp2022 9mm. You can get these new for under $500 or less depending in your location. It should come with two 15 round (standard capacity) magazines in most of the free world. In Calif you will get ten rounders.

Nothing special; Just the same EDC & Back-up sidearms "on body" as they should be (IMO). If I'm driving aways, I'll throw a carbine in the back.

I usually keep a shotgun in my truck when I am close to home. In town I usually carry a 30/30. The 30/30 slides right under the seat when I get out of the truck or I can just ride it on the dash and cover it with a towel when I get out of the truck. Even though it is a JM Marlin I only have $50 in it and I have never hunted with the 30/30.

Whatever is on my belt when I get is typically my 'truck gun.' Currently, it's a Glock 36 .45 acp (about 3 years)...in the past it was a 2.25" SP101 for about 10 years.

Interesting question...I picked-up a stainless Ruger P97 DAO .45 acp pistol about 2 years ago in order to have a 'truck gun'...however, upon shooting it, it was quickly elevated to an 'in-home' defense gun (currently hidden on a very high up shelf, upstairs, next to the computer area) in the event something happens (in or around the home) and I am upstairs when it occurs. Funny how it 'grew' a set of Meprolight Tritium night sights and the 2 mags that came with it are now 6! I was amazed at how accurate it was and how easy to shoot (mild recoil) + easy + quick second/follow-up shot was...definitely a keeper!

Always have my Charter arms undercover .38 special in the vehicle we're driving. Long trips I'll throw in my P89 and a couple of spare mags. If I want to take a rifle along I'll grab my m1 carbine and a couple of thirty rounders and tuck them behind the seat.

Just my every day carry on my side...I think 13 rounds will be fine in most cases..
