Truck guns used to be guns that were hung on the gun rack on the back window that stayed there. Everyone had guns in their trucks and they usually never came out until the early 80's when people started stealing your guns. Most people had a 30-30 or a bolt action rifle and a shot gun. They weren't beat up guns. They were just hunting guns that stayed in the truck.

Man o man, I miss seeing those. I remember as a kid thinking that was about the coolest thing one could do in my eyes...

When I was in my pre-teens my dad used to keep a shotgun and a .22 rifle in the rack of his truck. He never locked his truck and if it was hot he'd leave the windows down. No one ever bothered his truck or his guns. I knew I'd better not touch them w/out permission or I'd tote a "whoopin"! Or worse I'd get my shooting privileges taken away.

I also miss the days when this was common. Most everyone around when I was growing up had a rifle and or shotgun in the back window of the truck. My grandpa always had a 12 ga. and an old wooden cane, not for walking but herding cows.
