    Also, can I see a picture of the back window for this truck to see if the tell-tale "Free Gun Inside" signage is present?

    I realize that it might come in handy or it might not. The overwhelming chance of me having to use it or my sidearm is probably very close to never. To answer your question as to why I'd want to use one as a truck gun is simply because I can, I want to, it makes me feel more secure (whether it will actually make me so is debatable but irrelevant), and I don't lose anything by doing so... Something to possibly gain and little to lose...

    FYI: I wouldn't keep it in my vehicle indefinitely, overnight, etc....
    If you did not want this to turn into a "truck gun" debate why did your OP state that you wanted our opinion on if the shockwave would make a good truck gun?
    If you just wanted our opinion on the shockwave as a shotgun we could have given that. But you asked what we thought about it as a truck gun.
    Kinda hard to answer your question without bringing up truck guns.
    And as stated I have nothing against keeping a rifle in my jeep, do it all the time

    I have never really heard a definition of a "truck gun". I suppose like most things people have different meaning and uses for such a thing. I have no gun that lives in my truck nor do I leave any guns in the truck overnight anywhere. My wife has a tendency to want to go on impromptu photography adventures and around here that usually means Grizzly bears March through November. In those cases or when we pull our trailer camping I have my 18" barrel 870 loaded with magnum slugs. On short hikes I pack the shotgun and the revolver on my hip and the bear spray. Camping its with me in the camper or in my truck on day trips so my answer is No on the shockwave but, I do carry a shotty when out and about in the way back. I would not even try and fire those magnum bear loads from a shockwave type of gun. Your liable to a have a deeply imbedded bead mark in your forehead.

    In your area I agree that a shotgun w/ magnum bear loads is a viable "truck gun" on backcountry trips. Thankfully, we don't have grizzlies here!

    1: I wasn't asking you (but thanks for sharing what appears to be a not so good way to do this, given certain factors yet to be determined)
    2: That's not a Shockwave
    3: Are those physically locked in place?
    4:Is the bolt locked open on the AR?
    5: Was the picture taken with a potato?

    The "Cool" factor is there.... The Useful factor is NOT there..... "Truck Gun" ....... ok......It's NOT a Long gun, it is sold as a "Other" ....In reality..... It primarily falls intro s Handgun type..... Personally, I wouldn't wanna take it outside my own State and into other states where I just might get myself placed in the Pokey...... Some States may not allow it ... The "Up in the air" type gun...
    Defensive Shotgun is more than enough "Truck Gun" for me......

    Straight from Mossberg's website.... may wanna check Individual State Laws.... >>>>>>>>>https://www.mossberg.com/category/series/590-shockwave/

    BTW, Gotta be 21 Yrs old to buy it, which deems this more "Handgun" than "other"

    This is more typical though:
    Still no Shockwave

    Well, it has been done this way in this particular truck for over 50 years.
    But nowadays America has become afraid of its own shadow.

    Yep, and I'm sure it will be done a long time from now..... Just watch out for those Jack-a-Lopes you encounter down your parts...They jump out of the Drain Ditches at the craziest times...
    NOPE, not "afraid of my shadow" in any way shape of form...
    I can walk down the street with these weapon pictured below, or place them in the rear window of my vehicle, but just because I CAN, doesn't mean I "Should"
    I don't invite anybody to take my guns from my vehicle, especially if they're NOT secure...Rural areas may be different, but highly populated areas, nope not for me.

    BTW, I'm in one of those FREE-er parts of America too!

    In Free America they need to tighten those slings up.
