I had always thought of a truck gun as the 30-30 Winchester or 30-06 rifle in the rifle rack that hung on the back window of a pickup in the south to midwest to west.

But between the laws mentioned above and the break ins mentioned above, those days are long gone.

My truck "gun" is a little pico with a laser sitting in the console.
It's just a fine get off me pistol, very accurate for it's miniscule barrel!

As a kid on the farm, there was usually a single shot 12ga and a 22lr in the back window of the pickup (A "truck" was 2 ton or greater...lol) and a machete in a leather sheath behind the seat. Non of these things were for personal protection. The pickup was never locked even when we went to town and the keys were left in the ignition. The house was never locked either. People respected each others' property and looked out for each other. I farmed and had a trucking business with my dad for 15 years after college and needed a truck gun. The John Deere dealer also sold guns and had just bought a bucket load of sks rifles and russian ammo. I gave him $100 for the rifle and $150 for 4 big spam cans of ammo. That thing banged around under the seat of the truck for years. I sold it a few years after I quit farming. I don't keep a gun in the Jeep now.
