    I was all over E. KY today; left home with a sidearm on the belt, the 870 slung beneath te seat protective cover on the back seat. Nothing to be see back there but dog dander and hair, flip the cover up, shotgun to hand. But when I cross state lines no long guns of any type. And in certain directions, nothing that holds more than 6-7-8 rounds on my body. I don't even want to take a chance on a LEO deciding to let a judge decide if it's 10 rounds only, or 10+1. I'd just as soon not stumble into a firearms felony. A shame our gun laws are such a patchwork of interpretation. But if you think the gun laws are hard to read, try stumbling your way through the knife laws of various states. Enough to make you wanna just stay home.

    but that's just my methods.

    Everywhere I go the G19 is in the console. When I am going to the ranch or such other places the Mini 14 Ranch Rifle is in the back seat. Double barreled coach gun is always beside the bed for those unexpected knocks in the night.

    This is my trunk gun...


    I would be worried about too much power, so I am going with 9mm. If something might happen that requires more, I'm staying home that day.

    Monadh how have you liked that gun so far? I’ve been thinking of picking one up to play with.

    I like it a lot. It is very easy to shoot groups with it, very little recoil, and the trigger on mine is very good. No malfunctions yet. I have replaced the cheap Bushnell red dot with an Aimpoint Pro.

    I have had 2 CZ Scorpions, and there is no comparison between them and the AK-V.

    I’m very interested in one. I was hoping it was Going to be a piston gun vs delayed blowback. I wonder how it compares in recoil and accuracy to the SIG MPX in similar barrel length. I have the MPX PCC and can hit the X ring as fast as I can pull the trigger.

    Yikes. I take it you’ve never shot any type of action shooting sport? Missing with a shotgun at close range isn’t as hard as people think.

    I have one of those, and they are not limited. Nice thing about them, the flash and blast are enough to stun a BLM/Antifa riot


    Very accurate.

    EDIT - OK, so it has a SBA3 brace and my Saint doesn't. Not sure that makes it "limited".

    "Truck gun" is there because a probability of engaging targets in other trucks/vehicles and/or at extended range exists.
    I'm taking a carbine/"AR Pistol".

    I wont speak to what you should or legally can carry in your vehicle in your location, I will say one can never have enough good shotguns and if things in November go badly the M1 variants with their wood stocks as opposed to black composite are going to be your good friend and best bet so why not get one now and start training with it.

    My son-in-law picked one of those up a couple of weeks ago, he really likes it. As of late, my bag gun has been a CZ Scorpion.

    It is a AK-V made by Palmetto State Armory. It is a 9mm pistol that uses readily available CZ Scorpion Evo mags, but PSA has redesigned the mags and made them more reliable and cheaper.

    I bought this to replace a Scorpion Evo I gave to my daughter for her apartment, and frankly I like it much better.
