    Usually keep a 12 ga. w/ slugs and 00 buck behind the seat.

    I'd like to keep something ''useful'' in the truck but - in PA - no can keep loaded.

    I do tho always have my Marlin Papoose in back under the seat - very quick to assemble and stuff in a mag and it's good to go. Hardly an SD tool but - now and again useful for small critter despatch!

    Thought about it

    No, but I have considered it. No law against keeping it loaded here in TX

    Have considered it some at home- when we go out to get "lost" in the Rockie Mtns. - we will now.

    Sometimes carry a Mossberg ATP-8 12ga. Since we can't carry loaded here in Washington, all ammo is in Sidesaddle (6 rounds). Can have at least 2 ready to go in the time it takes to get out of the vehicle.

    Like amlevin said, can't carry it loaded in WA. I did keep a 10-22 behind the pickup seat for a while with a couple loaded mags in the front, but I park in some bad areas and didn't want to give it to some vehicle prowler.

    In MA, can't even have an unloaded long gun "on a public way" without having it cased! Hi-cap long guns must be unloaded and in a locked case/trunk while transported. Lo-cap long guns must be unloaded in a vehicle (very old anti-jacking law, I am told).

    I live in Illinois and would have to have the gun cased and unloaded. Even then some of the local cops say that is illegal.

    Bottom line is I don't keep one in the vehicle because I don't want to get harassed by cops that don't know the law.

    I wish I could have it loaded in my vehicle. But I don't carry a long gun in my truck.

    I am thinking of getting one of those SUV caddy things for my Blazer like in Cabelas and such. Lockable sotrage. Like to get a Ruger carbine or Kel Tec SU16 or M1 carbine or something. OK, actually a SOCOM 16 would be nice but can't afford it.

    I would except that I've had two cars broken into (albeit in NYC), so I'm scared it could happen again and loose my long gun.
