    Securing/Concealing Long Guns in Vehicle...

    As my gun collection expands, I am seeing the need to be able to both conceal and secure long guns in my SUV, for long trips (hotel stays, etc.). What are my options? Do I have any?

    What is the make and model of your SUV? This is helpful in determining where storage is an option.
    God invented cops so that firemen could have heroes too!

    I would cut two pieces of metal pipe slightly larger that the barrel of the gun . In the first one drill a hole thru the pipe and insert a carrage head bolt and tighten from the bottom of the vehicle. I would also cut another the long way and weld a heavy duty hinge and hasp lock and get a american or master hockey puck lock and bolt that to the bottom of the vehicle also. I would position the long gum so the stock was against the inside of the vehicle. So it can not go forward or back or left or right.

    My BIL put a false floor in his Jeep Cherokee. The false floor runs from right behind the front seats to the tailgate, is wall to wall (fitted) and is about 8-10" deep. The false floor is carpeted in a color and texture approximating the original carpet. He thereby has a cargo area "undercover" as large as the original, about 8-10" deep for rifles, pistols, cases, ammo. etc. All locking up tight, of course.

    you could go with one of these.
    "A well-educated electorate, being necessary to the continuance of a free state, the right of the people to keep and read books shall not be infringed."
    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    I had a box biult that fit in the "trunk" space of my hatchback. It was basically a false floor for that area and the carpet that came with the car fit on top of it so it was invisible from the outside. Deep enough to hold a rifle or two, plus a first aid kit, extinguisher, and a couple of other miscelaneous things. Cost around $40 in materials and labor. A guy who makes speaker boxes made it, and it had only a cheap little latch, but wouldn't be hard to put a good lock on it. The lock and the concealment should go a long way in keeping your stuff safe.

    I could fit 2 ARs, a shotgun, and an Uzi in my Pontiac Vibe.

    First of all I wouldn't want to keep/store any weapons in my vehicle.
    But...if I had no other choice, I would not want them to be seen in any way.
    Superhouse 15 has the right idea, build an false wall or prepare a out of sight hiding place.

    I just keep my rifle in its case in the back cargo area of my Acura MDX.
