    Another vote for an SKS. I have one I keep in a cheap long gun sheath that zips up behind the seat. It's kept unloaded, and I have 4 stripper clips with 10 rounds of soft points each in the glove box.

    The rifle is beat all to hell from pulling years of duty as a tractor gun, but it shoots just fine. I just spray painted the dinged up wooden stock with flat black paint and theirs your " black rifle".
    You can pick them up for around 300 bucks.

    Learn how to clean it blindfolded, to include setting headspace and timing!

    And hump it (in a team) 20 miles to put it into action, in under 8 hours! However, having it as a 'Truck Gun' makes it even better

    Cool truck gun

    You mean none of you would go out and have an 8 thousand dollar custom made titanium 30/30 like the guy on the Tv show did... lol... don't get me wrong those folks build some neat guns but really who has an 8 grand 30/30 for a truck gun I guess somebody with more money than sense ... I had an old mosburg 500 for years in my truck..

    My "truck" gun is not necessarily a defense gun. My truck gun is used primarily for hogs and coyotes and other things like that. It is a mini 14 so it would certainly be useful as a defense gun as well. More times than not I have a 12ga and 22mag as well. Of course I spend as much time in pastures and woods as I do in town.

    How times change! Got my first one for $72 (They were $65, but I paid an extra $7 to get the blade bayonet). Got another one for $125 a year or so later, and thought I'd paid too much.

    Sure wish I'd loaded up the truck with all of 'em I could carry for $65 a piece!

    Regards,
    Jim

    I carry a Kel-Tec 2000 folding carbine in 40 SW with daylight laser and open sights. Very compact and doesn't look like you are carrying a weapon when you take it into the hotel room. Just hook it over the handles of my wheeled case (label down) looks like a small laptop case. However I got mine when they were still available and cheap.

    .30-30 lever gun. If you can't find a good used one under $300 you aren't walking into the right shops. SKS would be even with that. The rounds have similar ballistics and price, so it's really up to what you want to use.

    Another vote for the split ticket of .30/30 lever gun or SKS. You can shorten the SKS a couple of inches by removing the grenade launcher muzzle appurtenance, you can save a pound by losing the bayonet, and those stripper clips do make it load quickly. A short-barreled .30/30 is even lighter and handier than the SKS, and gives up a few rounds in capacity, but doesn't have to be shot dry before you reload. You'd be well-equipped with either.

    In Maine you can not have a loaded rifle or shotgun in your car... Long arms must be unloaded and stored away from ready access. A CCW permit holder can have a loaded pistol or revolver, so in addition to the Sigs the missus and I carry on body, the designated "truck gun" is a nicely appointed AR pistol and half a dozen 30rd PMags with various types of ammo. It's not dedicated to a specific vehicle, rather it's kept in a nice compact case that we grab on the way out if we're going anywhere more significant than the store, etc.

    If we're heading to the folks place (5 hours away) we throw it in the truck.... If we're gonna go back-woods camping we throw it in the motorhome.

    If you really want a "black gun" as your truck gun, an AR pistol might be a good choice for you... You can build it over time and the overall expense won't hurt as much.... Or perhaps an AK pistol that's less expensive, but still packs a full power round into a compact firearm.

    I'd second the Mosin, if it were not for the darn corrosive ammo. Yeah, you can buy newer non-corrosive ammo, but at $1 a shot, it defeats the purpose.

    The Brown Bear I use in mine is more like 50 cents a shot. I think an M44 or M38 Mosin-Nagant would be very handy. The .30-30 and SKS rifles also make excellent choices IMO, as all are cheap, powerful, handy and reliable. That is what I picture when I think "truck gun", with probably the most classic being the levergun.

    I prefer a lever action in either .30-30 or .357
