Truck Guns.

I’ve been giving some thought to the concept of a Truck Gun. I define it as a firearm, in long gun or major caliber that even though is reduced in size, it is too big to carry concealed and should be stashed in a vehicle. The Truck Gun use is as force multiplier in the case of multiple attackers or wherever a higher degree of firepower is required. The shortness may allow it to be used inside the vehicle without being too cumbersome.

I contend that Truck Gun should not be subjected to NFA regulations. It should be something I can go NOW to a gun store and walk away with it (or withing whatever “waiting period” you have in your locality. If modifying an existing gun puts you in the NFA, it will also will make it not valid. Why? Because I say so 🙂 Actually the less trouble you have to deal with paperwork, the more likely you’d get one.

With that, here is my very particular list.

Rossi’s Ranch Hand in .44 Magnum

Pros: A Lever action is an old proven design with little chance of failure. Six shots in 44 magnum with modern ammunition cannot be sneezed at.
Cons: Slow to reload unless there is some sort of speedloader for Lever Actions nobody told me about.

Serbu Super Shorty, 12 gauge.

Pros: It is a 12 gauge for Pete’s sake! Intimidation value is high.
Cons: Capacity is 2 in the magazine plus one in the chamber. You can probably add a SideSaddle for extra ammo. Where are the sights?
CORRECTION: Linoge just slapped be in the head and let me know this baby is considered AOW and subject to ATF paperwork…damn it!

AR Pistol 5.56

Pros: Light Rifle goodness all around. High capacity and easy to reload. (I like the 20 round mag.)
Cons: Barbie gun. Will you be comfortable leaving it in the truck without care for 6 months?

Draco AK Pistol, 7.62×39

Pros: Proven to death AK system. High capacity (I’d go with a 20 round mag) easier to reload than shottie or lever action. Stash & Forget.
Cons: Recoil will be a consideration. Crappy sight system will force you to get a better one.

A consideration for all guns is that you must install a sling. Not only will it keep the gun with you, it will also provide you with a semblance of stability while shooting.

I would probably end with the Draco with some sort of very small red dot because I am more knowledgeable of the AK platform.

And this is why you don’t ask cops about gun laws.

Because a lot of them, Chiefs included have no idea what they are talking about.

Chief Dolan is expressing his “concern” about the expansion of the Castle Doctrine in Minnesota. The bill would allow a person to shoot a trespasser who is outdoors on a patio, porch or garage — as long as the defender has a reasonable fear for his or her safety.But Chief Dolan cites that his entry teams (Read SWAT) would be endangered by such law.

Huh?

Wait, if you are sending a SWAT team to a location is because you are expecting a high degree of violence which include GUNS in the HANDS OF CRIMINALS. Unless St. Paul regularly uses SWAT teams in locations like kindergardens while checking for code violations, rank and file police officers will understand that there are proper uses of dynamic entries in some occasions and some which are less than indicated.

And I still cannot figure out the degree of idiocy of anybody that would say that it is legal to defend myself inside my house, but I become John Wayne Gacy anywhere else in my property. Is saving my life less righteous if I am visiting friends or staying at a hotel?  Why is it legally better to be raped or murdered outside the home?

Mind blowing….

What?!? Brain Hurts….

Call me paranoid, but I think these are trick questions.

Are Girl Scouts good at selling cookies door to door? Or Are Llamas good for producing Angora wool?

I am going to name these pearls of “Logic” Pzychedelic Zen. The only way to follow and understand it is to ingest expired LSD while riding the Rainbow Farting Unicorn.
