Would this be in addition to another rifle that's carried?
I have a 10/22 target tactical and do not like the takedown model one bit to be honest. For me the vote goes to the AR and here's why. I have far more trigger time behind an AR platform than I do a 10/22 platform (except for the target tactical which weighs somewhere between a ton and a blue whale), so AR for me.
Personally, I'd go w/ the 10/22 takedown.
If I already had a 10/22 takedown, that's what I would go with. If I was purchasing a new gun, i'd go with a marlin 795 for a .22 truck gun.
How do you carry a "truck gun"? Visible to all, or elsewhere in the cab (and interpretable as concealed)? Or locked in the toolbox? Or what?
I have heard "AR Pistol" (with a CCH) for this reason. You can have any pistol anywhere in the vehicle with you with a CCW. Long guns, not so much. An AR pistol, with an arm brace in case you ever really really need it, would seem to be pretty nearly ideal: familiar, high (standard ) capacity, carbine round instead of pistol, still small enough to maneuver in a vehicle, without worrying about whether it is visible all the time.
Is a truck gun for cases when you go back to the truck for it, so accessibility from the driver's seat isn't important? I am completely unclear on this. Most of the realistic scenarios I can come up with for needing a long gun in my vehicle would need it to be accessible quickly, whether driving or not. But the last thing I want is a visible long gun in my car driving around RTP, either on the road or parked most places.
I'm with Jim..
More info please...
FWIW, a "rural" truck gun and an "urban" truck gun may not necessarily be the same gun. Where will you be spending most of your time with this truck?
Rural truck gun...
30/30 lever gun or 10/22
(I almost chose a .410 pump shotgun with various ammo...bird shot...buck shot...PDX self defense ammo...VERY versatile platform for rural situations)
AR platform, preferably .308, or the M&P 15-22
The "pistol rifle" may be the ideal choice here. Take an ar or ak pistol (your choice which) and put one of the sig or sig type braces on it. If the shtf enuff that you really need it i doubt anyone will be watching close enough to see if the brace is against your cheek or your shoulder.
This could also change depending on your budget. The CZ scorpion with a brace would be awesome but definitely much pricier.
If you are set on a 22lr keep in mind the sig 522 which has a side folding stock standard.
I'm on a Mossberg MVP Scout kick these days. It's small, uses my already available M1A magazines and with .308 it'll knock down anything that may arise.
I'd go with an AR pistol with Sig brace/KAK blade.
I am not sure I see the value of a .22 LR truck gun (unless you're going squirrel hunting).
I think you should go all ISIS on this, .50cal mounted in the back!
Kel-Tec su-16c lots of firepower in a very small package
Depends on the use. Theoretical zombies/SHTF/whatever...legit farm use...occasional squirrel slaying...possible 2 legged predators...impromptu plinking...decoration...
I read somewhere that Mark the plumber is suing the auto dealer for exporting that truck without removing his company decals before is is got ahold of it.
Yeah. He has been getting death threats and it has hurt his business since that image has been plastered everywhere.
.22 ammo is not reliable so that would cause me to look for something else.
17hmr or 22mag make good options and keep ammo light and reasonable priced. Only down fall is I wouldn't consider it a reliable large animal caliber.
I'm thinking a 5.56 ar pistol with a rim fire conversion kit would give you some versatility.
Nah go for this...just got the ad today and I dont see how it cant be perfect for any scenario...
Maybe cost but ammo for a 30-30 is not a problem at all. Im reloading my first batch ever today and it might just turn out to be my most affordable 30 cal. With the small powder charges and lead bulleta.
10/22 but I am not a fan of the takedown. No particular reason, just prefer the standard rifle.
i posted a while back..this is mine...reasonable and plent of ammo around or my sub 2000 with 33 round mags
Best truck gun is my old beater sks
Best truck gun.....
I was thinking on this one. All I came up with is:
The one not found by the po-po and holds zero.
I guess you're thinking a .22 in order to get small game to eat. In what scenario would you need a truck gun in order to get small game to eat? I'm just not following that lone of thinking.
