Default Motor vehicle gun

What do y'all keep in your vehicles? I've changed my mind so many times, but I have a Taurus Judge just to have for snakes and such, and I loaded it with .410 gauge #4 shot shells. What do you think about if for a vehicle gun?

For me its whatever I carry for the day, either my LCR or 3" kimber ultra carry.. All depends on what I am doing for the day or what I am wearing. I like to carry the 45 but the LCR has become my daily go-to piece

Saw a video that explained that the Judge was the ultimate anti-carjacking piece.

I just dig the versatility of it, though ammo can be a beast to find.

Ive seen testing done that showed that the Judge was not a good choice if you are running shot through it. The barrel apparently isn't long enough to get enough velocity for the shot to reach vital organs. But the slug, or .45 LC will more than get the job done.

In answer to the OP. For me it is whatever I am carrying that day. Normally my Ultra CDP II.

I don't carry every day, just when I feel like I need to, but I sure like having one in the vehicle wherever I go for those times when I'm not carrying.

Regarding the penetration and the vital organs, I'm of the feeling that, if a bad guy tries to carjack me, I'll give him a faceful of #4 and he'll probably leave me alone. Then I'll have to find a way to stop the bleeding from my ears.

I have a box of the .45 LC....doubt that I'll ever use it.

I think the Judge would be perfect for a "truck gun". Just like our famous deer hunter from a while back..."Shoot 'em in the face!"

Now I'm thinking Ruger LCR with Crimson Trace. Judge is too long to fit in my center console. Studied the LCR a lot....sounds like a great little concept.

Depends on where I'm going and when. Into Anchorage, I recently got a Kel-Tec PF9 that fits perfectly in my inside vest pocket. Going out of town, in the winter I generally take a 4" .357. When the bears are out generally my 5" Super Blackhawk. I'm trying to decide how to mount a rifle rack down near the floor so it will be covered by the seat. I think an SKS and pump 12 ga would make the perfect truck combo. Plus your sidearm to give you time to get to them. Of course, the .44 Marlin would go nice in that rack too...

If I can ever get it from the dealer, my truck gun will be a 4" Charter Arms Target .44 Special.
