I am just as nice as anyone lets me be and can be just as mean as anyone makes me. - Quoted from Terryger, New member to our forum.
I think that a AK pistol would be a great choice for a truck gun, I am looking into that option myself currently, I would get polymer mags instead of steel though, with the winters in Michigan I wouldn't want to worry about the vehicle heating up and condensation forming on the previously frosty mags and causing them to rust

Here in Arkansas our church carry bill failed. CHCL holders are still unable to carry a handgun in church. Many people just break the law (one legislator wondered out loud what the fuss was all about, since so many people just carry anyway) but I'm not a lawbreaker and I think CHCL holders doing that sends the wrong message about who we are, providing we're not in a SHTF scenario.
Arkansas law is SILENT on carrying long guns (anything with a barrel longer than 12", under state law) pretty much anywhere. Of course, federal laws still apply including the Gun Free School Zones Act (don't get me started on that one!)
For this reason I've thought about buying an inexpensive Draco AK-47 pistol with a 12.25" barrel for one main activity: church! I'm always wearing a suit, so I would think I'd have a decent shot at concealing it. What do you all think? Could I hide it? What carry method might work and with which product (holster)? What ammo should I use?
I am a CHCL Instructor in Arkansas and know the law quite well. My primary concern is whether I could conceal this.
Edit - Nevermind, I think I understand what you're asking..
A single point sling would be the best option, though I'd never do it. Having said that, I've 'concealed' a LWRC PSD 8" Under an overcoat before during an 'exercise'. It can be done. Just like a full size pistol on a small person, it's all in how we carry ourselves.
Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe
Of course, my desire to do this is more political than practical. I don't want people in the church to see it easily (scare people) but do want to tell these stupid legislators next time around that I carried an AK-47 while they won't let me carry my Glock.
Stupidity abounds in the Arkansas Senate.

Buy your AK pistol, and USE it! It's expensive, but if you load 12rds, then the rest hollow/soft point, you will be covered for almost anything.

Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.
I would think for your purposes, an off-body option might be better. What about a soft-sided briefcase or messenger bag? If you have young kids, folks most likely won't even give you a second look. I know that it would be hard for me to conceal a Draco pistol on my body w/out a long coat. When I wear a suit, I like them to look like they fit too.
I've decided to wait on buying a Draco pistol. There are just too many on the wish list.
I'll keep my freedom, my liberty, and my guns. You can keep the change.
I had an AK pistol for a while, but have traded it off and am semi-sorta-looking for an AR pistol now. I can put a red-dot on an AR pistol easier and I can use the tube to get a cheek weld on it if I want or need to.
