I did see a lot of gun racks in tx, I see them now and again here in Indiana but imo it doesn't matter where you live, hanging a firearm in your rear window in plain sight of anyone is asking for trouble.

This is why my long gun rack is mounted to the back wall of my regular cab trucks. The extended cab my wife has has a custom built box under the split rear bench, carpeted to match the interior of the truck. Out of sight, out of mind. It kinda prevents that "Come an take me" urge from happening.

Now if I could only come up with a way to conceal the bows......

Its a Texas thing--
Honestly you rarely see them anymore- Fact i don't think i've see any in many years- Back when they were common it was a well--simpler time

That is my observation as well. When I was growing up in rural eastern CO most folks had a rack in the back window of their PU and most had a 22 and/or shotgun in it.
Here in rural AL you do see it sometimes, right now is deer season so it is more common until the end of January.
