So..., would this be a bit too much?:




Oh come on, you knew someone was going to do it.

They may, but a pistol isn't even a Truck Gun. And a Hi Point C9 is, well, the new Bryco-Jennings-Lorcin-Raven...

"The C-9 is the most recovered weapon involved in a crime by the Chicago Police Department between 2008 and 2010 in both the category "recovered firearms, used in a crime within a year of purchase" and the category "recovered firearms, regardless of date of purchase."

Old PU Trucks all used to have racks in the back windows. Most had an assortment of devices and other accoutrements. Usually a good shooting woodchuck rifle, maybe a shotgun, often a fishing pole and occasionally, a pair of panties and other window dressing. I wouldn't say that most were beater weapons, actually we value the long shot on Chucks, at least a couple of my buddies had 22 hornets and they would reach out and touch them, leave quite a mess behind in their wake. I suppose they would have done the same to a human but we dont hunt humans in Rural upstate NY, they only do that in NYC, Syracuse and Albany! Most Truck guns weren't any flashier than the truck they were in, nice truck, nice guns; POS truck, plain old guns.

Most of my friends that drove to school had guns in the window, many of the teachers did also. We didnt take them on the playground but it wasnt odd at all to be out in the parking lot during lunch or study hall checking out each others guns, just dont get caught smoking, that would get you in a heap of trouble! Funny, not too many school shootings when we had lots of guns in the schools, odd how that works isnt it?

High Schools in the US, including in the cities, had rifle teams and clubs until Martin Luther King Jr. got shot and that started the cascade of shutting them down. Before that teenagers on the subway in NYC carried their rifle in a cloth guncase. Is odd how that all works...

I carried a Remington Model 11 in twelve gauge and a Savage Model 29 pump .22. Usually had part of a brick of Winchester .22's and a couple of boxes of number 6 or 7 1/2 shot.
