The perfect "truck gun" spot

If you guys are looking for a cheap truck gun, the Taurus G2C fits PERFECTLY in the small driver side glove box.

You can usually get these at Academy Sports for $199 but I got it from sportsman's guide for $169.

Keyboard operators please save the "don't leave firearms in your vehicle" and "I wouldn't rely on a taurus" comments. We all know. (I've put over 500 rounds through each of the two I bought without a hiccup.)

I was thinking AR Pistol in the trunk area where the spare would go. But this looks much better. Thanks.

Paultattoo That was my first plan too, but I ended up filling that space with a viair compressor, plug kit, jumper cables, other misc tools and emergency equipment.

How about a SAV gun? Since you know...no one on here has a "truck".

No disrespect, but what good does it do you in the trunk? Last time I was carjacked I would not be able to retrieve it from the trunk fast enough.

That’s why I like Tex’s idea.

In the trunk falls under the “better to have a gun and not need it then need a gun and not have it”.

Fantastic discussion.

My EDC is a Glock 19. Wondering how that would fit in that space, compared to your Taurus.

Looks like my S&W Bodyguard .380 would fit there (I didn't realize there was a storage compartment there, thanks.) My door gun is a S&W Shield 9MM. My dash guns are either a Glock model 40 10MM or a S&W 686 .357, depending on the territory. Just kidding about the dash guns.

Wild Blue I tried my G19 and it wouldn't fit. A G26 would probably fit nicely though.

FishOuttaWater I like your style. Door gun, Dash gun, Console Gun, Trunk Gun...why not!

So it sounds like that compartment really only fits a pocket pistol, maybe subcompacts.

If it fits a SSP250 I am good unfortunately no carry permit so even it does it has to stay in an inaccessible area with the ammunition in a different zip code according to our wonderful political leaders otherwise the "good guys" are the problem and they continue to reward the "bad guys".
