My EDC is a ruger lc9. But with the way I carry (4 o'clock) its hard to reach when I'm in my truck. Is like to have a truck gun that stays in the vehicle at all times. I don't have a reliable shotgun or rifle to put in there. But I have an M&P9 or a 1911. Which should I carry in the truck and how should I carry it? I.E. where to hide it? I don't have kids and the people in my truck know not to mess with any guns they might find.
dont know about your local laws but here in wisconsin we got oc and ccw so my gun sits on the center console where i can get it if needed. i carry owb 3oclock so when i get out of the truck it either goes in the center console or in the holster at that point.
i always have my lcp in my pocket. ive taken to carrying the beretta M9A1 since the wife has decided she likes it a lot and wants one. we are consolidating our carry guns into what she is comfy with.
anyway depends on your truck and local laws. between the seats under a newspaper on the seat or in or on the center console.

The problem with being stupid is you cannot simply decide to stop doing dumb things...
Having a second gun just hanging around in the truck is a liability for me. I end up with children in the truck that I never planned to transport. I have friends that don't need to touch a firearm in a confined space. There are to many things to go wrong in my life. If I need a gun in the truck I have my EDC.
When I do need to carry a long gun I put it in my tool box. Out of sight is out of mind.

I had an experience today where a random man started cussing us out as we were getting in my truck. I was in and buckled and I'm afraid I wouldn't have been able to reach my EDC in time in case things escalated. Hence my desire for a truck gun
Dude, if you are in your truck and buckled, the door should be closed and keys in the ignition. If there is a situation, you drive off and avoid conflict. Your EDC should be in a position to be accessible anytime. As for a truck gun, I do not think of that as my primary plan of defense in my vehicle. I keep mine in my center console, which is lockable for the few times that I need to prevent access from kids.
The lc9 will never leave my hip. But if somebody attacks while I'm in my truck I need another gun with better accuracy and easier to access
Situational awareness + locked doors should provide enough time to access your concealed handgun.
I could make a list of a bunch of guns i have, or "have", or wish I had. Why would one feel compelled to provide that infornation freely? Do you feel the need to show off? Is it some immature game of oneupsmanship?
