From what I have heard is its a gun you can beat the crap out of, use, abuse and not have to worry very much.

Any gun you can swing out the side window without knocking out your front glass.

Kinda like a "tree trunk gun" only in a beater Chevy pick-em-up.

See if these pics work....

Generally agree with above,its a rig that isn't particularly "valuable".But then that's a relative term....meaning,what's valuable to one....may not be to another?

For me,it's more about the time of year(what's in season).Right now,a Savage short action,SS .223 makes sense.Any "more" scratches just add to it's character.

Reason for response....and it's prolly better served in the hunting section....is:I finished up a job "early" today.The "truck gun" is the above Savage,so took a nice long walk on the property with the tool at hand.

In the past,I've had truck guns that went un-cased.Nowadays...they're cased.Just sayin,they don't have to be complete "beaters" to qualify as truck guns?

According to the yahoos on American Guns, a truck gun is when you strip down a Winchester 94 to its screws, rebuild the receiver out of titanium, mill a new stock and handguard from endangered Brazillian Chestnut Hemlock, laquered with the same material used to make space shuttle heat tiles, secure it in a custom designed forged aluminum self-locking rack mounted with gold plated bolts and fairy dust, and cut a check for a $5,000 bill for a gun that only cost $300 in the first place.

That's the Discovery Channel's version of a truck gun.

Taurus model 72?? I have one in stainless I bought off a co worker who was hard up for cash. I'm not a big Taurus fan, but man it is a tack driver!! One of my favorite plinkers!
