Ever bring a defensive rifle when traveling ?
Personal Defense TV was discussing battle rifles as part of a home-defense arsenal. When traveling on the road however, I am wondering if you've ever considered bring a rifle in the trunk of your vehicle (in compliance with all local laws of course) for unforeseen situations.
Guess I am thinking that if some big event like 9/11 or some natural disaster occurred - travel may be difficult and we might have to stay put for awhile at the hotel or at a relatives house or wherever we happen to be. Assuming the normal carry rig would be available as a matter of course, it still seems that a defensive rifle would be a useful option for keeping the premises secure. This is worst-case scenario thinking perhaps. but wondering if anyone else has considered this - or am I thinking about all this too hard ?
