If I remember my USFS training, bear spray is literally no different than regular mace. Itís the spray/volume that sets it apart (as youíve mentioned). I really donít see how in light of those facts itís any different legally. Although I could see a really crappy DA trying to peddle to a jury that itís different because ďmuh BEAR sprayĒ.

Personally, I donít keep a long gun in the vehicle permanently. As others have said, thatís how you get stuff jacked. If I gotta go somewhere where I might need it, Iíll just put it in there for the journey and take it out after I get to where Iím going. About the only thing I permanently keep, weapons-wise, is loaded mags in some of those old school Alice clip mag pouches.

I had a buddy lose a ~$3K Nighthawk because he kept it in his console. With a ďcome and take itĒ sticker on the back. Which was promptly stolen when someone did a late night smash n grab. Joke is that ďyeah well it looks like they did come and take itĒ. Took him years to find that funny.

In some states, carrying a loaded rifle or shotgun isn't covered under the same statutes as carrying a loaded pistol.

Also, several states have somewhat obscure anti-poaching laws that specifically cover rifles in vehicles and the conditions under which they can be transported.

yea its pretty much the same with a little lower capsicum only regulated by FDA as pesticide. Not sure if that opens door to different laws but if you grossly misused it probably. It's lower concentrate but I've been hit with some backblast it will incapacitate humans, for sure.

I keep 9mm on me. Normally, another higher capacity 9mm in console. No long gun. Too many DNR rules about carrying a long gun in vehicle. Night hunters & such.

I CONSTANTLY have to remind myself to take them out going some places. Especially school zone areas, etc. I’ve slipped up before and forgot. Same with the Post Office.

The Kel Tech would be my choice though Gsniper was speaking of.

Most auto break-ins are opportunity crimes - no tools. Go to Tractor Supply Co. and get one of those thick, coated Master cable locks. Loop it around the steel seat post, bolted to the steel truck frame, and through your mag well. Use your pistol to get to your other "Pistol"/Firearm/Rifle - odds are you will never need your longer gun *that* fast.

Mr. TDY.
Are you talking about cameras watching your truck in the driveway? Sure. But I'm talking about not contributing to the Anti-Gunners agenda, and arming scumbags, when some Meth-Head breaks a window while I'm in Tractor Supply Co. buying Dog Food.

4 German Shepherds watch my Jeep in the driveway, and my house, 24/7.

AR pistol in a racket ball racket bag with 2 30 rnd and one 20 rnd mags in a mag pouch with a canvas strap on it so I can grab and go. SS 109, with last two tracer.

I found some Hornady Black ammo, 75 grain Interlock soft point that is made for SBR's. That's what I carry for mine.

Do you have a truck gun in your truck? Why did you pick that particular weapon and what have you done with it to date.

I keep a POF AR Pistol in 5.56 in my truck. I picked it because I want more range and accuracy than my CCW in the event of a active shooter. I got it out today to kill a coyote, but Wiley was too quick.

Thought you were into oddball 6. whatever?

All I read was, I have to go to Tractor supply. No problems there, I can practically open my own just by hanging the sign above my garage door.

No. Driveway & home secure. Only reason I lock the house is because of a grandson.

Just about every business has a camera outside and stoplight here. Turning into fucking China.

If going out of state for the weekend or a trip, I bring an ar15 in the trunk and have my issued sig on my hip. I dont leave guns, ammo, or anything related other than a benchmade knife/glass breaker/belt cutter in my car overnight.

I just purchased a truck/travel gun. It's a 44 magnum lever action. It's pretty much legal across the country so it's good for travel as we drive through "slave states" such as Illinois.
