In my truck, it's a G20SF in 10mm, plus another 300 BO AR pistol.

Neither of the AR's are particularly notable with regard to brand, and were each less than $800.

I personally carry 10mm/300BO due to my local AO, and the likelihood of dealing with animals, and/or people wearing heavy winter clothing.
this. I have 2 truck guns, both pistols.
A Taurus .38 and a NAA Micro revolver in .22 mag. I slip that one in my pocket when I go into most stores. Tiny, can't be seen, and something to have if something goes sideways.
If I lived in the country, I'd probably throw a rifle under the seat somewhere.

During my years back home in the high country I carried a dirty 30 and my ruger MKII my one roomie bought me when I got out of the service. That was back when one could buy .22 accelerators for the 30/30. We were always driving in the backcountry to jobs and I hated passing up all those tasty , curious grouse,I would occasionally spot, and then the occasional elk or deer during the season.

Careful about how it's cased, and have the ammunition in a separate case, not too easy to reach.

Just check the laws carefully, especially regarding Cook County (i.e. Chicago).

Been looking at a Henry .357 lever carbine for a long time, for the same reasons.

Yep..

I was eyeballing an old rossi .357 lever carbine in a gun shop recently and was thinking the same thing...

can take coyotes, hogs, and deer easily at reasonably close ranges.. a decent option for most defense situations.. affordable.. and allowed in almost every jurisdiction in the US..

Throw it in a tennis racquet case, throw that under the back bench seat of the truck with a spare box of ammo.. and you've got less than $350 in the investment.. with something that is the 80% or better solution for most situations/scenarios..

I bought a couple of old laptop cases for my KelTec's. Rifle, sling and about a half dozen glock mags in the case.

I have 2 Rossi's in .357, one blued, full sized and one stainless in a carbine. Don't let the Rossi name fool you. These rifles are rock solid and perform well.

Here is the one I got. It takes down into two smaller elements. So far it seems very well made and the takedown feature is tight. Action is smooth.
I paid around $1000
Taylor's Alaskan 1892 Takedown Taking it to the range later today.

Henry use to manufacture the rifles in my precinct in Brooklyn when I was a rookie. The owner is a good dude.

Really liked the concept of the KelTec, I went to buy one of these Friday night and they had sold the two they had in stock that week, then wanted to get a Sig P365 and they had sold that day.

Guy behind counter said due to the BS in Richmond they are not making any new orders until they see what they can sale.

FWIW. I read gun sales were up 30% there.

The Kel-Tec Gsniper speaks of and the cases are a great little deal. I’ve seen his set up and second it. Efficient, not real noticeable. Good set up that won’t break the bank.
