    I don't like to leave a gun in the car, but I have been known to leave my 25 year old Taurus 92 with and extra mag stored under the backseat. The gun is accurate, dependable, has 1911 controls, and I like the gun. I'd hate to lose it, but it is extremely comforting to have available when having one on my person is difficult.

    my truck gun

    My only complaint is that it takes a couple moments to open the case, then screw the gun together & load it. So I have been considering having a machine shop cut the threads so that it will just take a 90 degree twist to secure it. And I also working on a way to keep the tube loaded.

    You could try Big Sky gun racks. They have ceiling and truck mounting options.

    You might also want to take the Hoppes out of the case. If it breaks or leaks, it could easily kill any rounds it comes in contact with.

    Exactly so.

    What make/model of shotgun is that, AdioSS?

I can not carry in a hospital in our state so again the gun is in the car, if I have a dedicated car gun that is concealable I always have something I can get to.
    I've not read every reply here so maybe somebody already said this. But from what you say you need the question is more like "where makes a good car gun". And where you keep it (so it's easy to get at yet secure) depends on your car interior type.

    Does a good old fashioned car club prevent a break in to steal the car? I still like them.

    Have you found a good easy on and off holster?

    Good luck with your solutions.

    The Hoppes, boresnake, & knife were in the case mainly for the picture. That knife is a bit too long to carry or even keep in the truck.

    The shotgun is a Marlin Model 43 12GA.
