    Perfect Car Gun?

    What are your thoughts regarding which guns are perfect to be kept in a vehicle?

    I believe that a Taurus 3" Judge loaded /w .410 no. 4 would fit the bill perfectly. Although currently I keep a Kel Tec P11 9mm in my vehicle.

    Ive been waiting to get onto this topic. Hopefully you get lots of replies. Ive been leaning towards a small carbine for a car gun. Like a kel-tec sub or a hi-point carbine. Both are small enough to not be a burden in the car and if you have the extra room why not pack something with a lil more punch then a pistol? I spose the car would be a good place to have a nice size revolver also. If i owned a revolver it would probably be a car gun.

    I think any revolver with up to a 4" barrrel and .38+P or larger caliber would be good.

    First of all, I do not keep a sidearm in my vehicle.
    My primary vehicle weapon is the one tucked into my waistband...a Kimber Ultra.

    Stay armed...keep it on your person...stay safe!

    folding stock AK, shotgun, or KT sub 2000 gets my vote

    If I'm in it, there is already a pistol in the vehicle.

    With the CWP, the gun stays in the holster that is on me.

    I would think a short barreled shottie would be cool to keep in the truck.

    Yes lets be realistic. We all know hanguns are not the best fightstoppers. So why not keep something bigger where you have the room and are legally allowed to do so?

    If I were going to keep a gun in the car, I'd also make it a long-gun that's well secured.

    If I were to choose a handgun to keep in the vehicle however, I would agree with a large caliber revolver.
    Or a Glock, simply from a reliability standpoint. If its going to always stay in the car it won't get maintained near as much. It'll collect more dirt, dust, lint and such as well.

    Notice that AR's were not on my list. Moslty for the same reason, but partly because...well, that's an expensive "truck" gun to beat up. lol!

    For a number of reasons I'm against leaving a weapon in a vehicle unless you have to dis-arm for a brief moment to go into a post office or if you have to leave it in the car while you're at work. But I would never just leave a gun in a vehicle on a regular basis. I think guns need to be loaded to be any good and should be with the person.

    I also don't go in for the "beater" gun for a truck or car. A gun should always be sutiable for it's intended purpose, not the storage conditions.

    Brainstorm on this....

    I'm already looking for a sub-2000. Half the time I carry a Beretta 92fs. With the 2000 set up for the same mag, it's be kind of nice to keep the sub in the car, 92 on my person so that one mag would fit both. That's what I want to do anyway, but I do like being able to have a rifle that shoots the same ammo and use the same mag. Just my opinion so far.

    I suppose I had a different idea than most, but I envisioned a gun that is reasonably quick to grab and easy to maneuver while seated in a seat. I know my carry gun while in its holster is not very accessible while I am driving.

    Saw some real world testing of the Judge and ammo such as bird shot and buckshot in .410 & it was NOT impressive. Unless you need a snake gun, you are better served with pistol or revolver and standard ammo, which has far better penetration and accuracy. I'll stick with my Glock, riding in the console when in the car and in my IWB, when I exit my vehicle. I also have a Charter Arm Undercover that stays by the tire changing equipment, in a closed case, knowing there will always be a gun available, should my wife or I be stuck on the side of road with a flat.
