I'm a mild prepper myself. By that I mean that I'm not neccessarly trying to prep for TEOTWASKI but more for a short term SHTF natural disaster or political situation.

My plan is also get home and hunker down. I never understood the whole take to the streets and run thing. That's another discussion though.

Myself, my truck's setup is a lot more low key. I never leave my house without my G19. In an ammo box I keep 4 loaded (JHP) mags (I carry one spare on me as well).

I also Keep a Hi-Point 916 with 4 spare loaded mags in there incase I have a passenger with me. People can say what they want about Hi-Points. Yes they are cheap, ugly and Bulky but they are accurate and I've got about 2500 rounds through that Hi-Point without any issues so far. I also keep a holster for the Hi-Point with it as well.

Other basic supplies I keep somewhere in the truck:
First Aid Kit
Blankets
Gallon of fresh water
12 Granola bars & 12oz Beef Jerky.
Flashlights
Folding ponchos

Nothing huge, but it should be plenty to get me and a passenger back home if need be if something bad happens. If we ever go on a road trip or travel for the holidays I make sure to increase the food and water.

I have this setup in the center console of my truck, but I don't have a dedicated truck rifle, so to speak. I will toss the Winchester Trapper in .44 Mag in the back if it looks like there might be trouble about...like when the verdict comes in on the George Zimmerman trial, for example.

That's pretty cool the way you wrapped the lever on your Winchester with parachute cord.

Anyone with a WJ and and an 18" 870 SHOULD know that the spot under the rear seats seems to be crafted specifically to fit that 870.

Badge 315,
Nice setup for the Glock! Did you do this yourself, or is this something you purchased? Its giving me ideas for an old plastic paddle holster I don't use and maybe some screws, velcro? Your setup would be perfect for the middle console in my Explorer!

When I was working private security in South Dallas I always had a carbine, two glocks and plenty of ammo in the vehicle because I did not have the luxury to call in back up personel.

Now that I don't work security anymore but mind my own business as 'normal' citizen , I only carry one Glock and an SKS in the truck. No set up to write home about

Actually, it's a Fobus paddle holster that I wasn't using anymore, mounted to the lid with self-tapping screws. Here are some close-up pics that better illustrate how it's mounted.

Call me a wimp, but I just make due with a G-19, a spare mag and a small backpack with first aid kit, a water purification pen, a water bladder and some other misc. outdoor gear (rain poncho, multi-tool, rope, compass, spare clothes, flashlight, lighter, survival blanket, etc.).

I'm set up if I have to ditch the car and hoof it for any reason, but I'm not ready to fight my way through a Russian Paratrooper Company.

I read the whole thread. DW, good man. The stickers are a no no to me but I like the general vibe of preparedness. Depending when, and where you live and travel, you have every chance. Sometimes, for some people, things go south. I see no reason to chirp about your setup in fact. I am inspired. The 870 goes into the trunk today.

I'm envious. I would not do the stickers, but I still respect the idea. I would ride with you.

It is

"Anyone who happens to be near my car can see it"

vs.

"Anyone in the world with access to a computer and the internet can see it"

There's a difference. Edit: Noting that the car/plate is now associated with a specific online identity. (A picture of a parking lot where nobody has any idea that a particular car is a particular person's would be a little bit different)

More to the point, anyone with a computer and internet access in Marion County, Florida, who may recognize that red Pontiac Sunfire couple (with the firearms-related decals in the rear window) can see it. Anyone as such who may be looking for firearms to steal for criminal purposes.

And if they read this thread they will know that the car is parked at some convenience-store every night.
How many convenience stores are there in Marion County, Florida?

Nice Answer Sheriff. Sounds like if I was gonna get stopped, I would like it to be a cop like you. Which, by the way, I have been stopped several times over the last few years, and only had one bad experience with a young, over zealous, edgy as hell newcomer to the sheriff's dept.

Well, to me that's just one specific scenario (and, in fact, a very good illustration of why it's a bad idea, but it is not the only risk, if that makes sense).

Fundamentally I see it as a matter of "Why raise the odds that someone who sees you online and wants to do bad can find you", without regard to particular motives (some motives will be more likely, some less).

i've got just the typical "texas errand run" load out. long gun behind the seat in a soft sided case which is covered by an old horse blanket, it might be a rifle or a shotgun depending on the time of year/situation/destination. and even though i know it's gonna wad a lot of panties, my truck gun is just that, the gun that lives in the truck. the only time it leaves the truck is for it's monthly cleaning, inspection, and function check. my windows aren't tinted, my interior is trashed, my radio is still stock, and the inside smells like stale contractor and cigarette smoke, and the interior is the nicest part of my truck. trust me, no thief is going to give my truck a 2nd look.

also, i don't have an entire resume of everything i've ever owned or done plastered across my back window or bumper either. it's a damned truck, not a rolling twitter account.

I understand that an image of a liscense plate online will probably increase the chances of it being seen. My point is: who cares if it's seen? Personally, I could care less if 5 or 500 people see my liscense plate. It wouldn't affect me either way.

You're illustrating that it's potentially dangerous to show online images of ones vehicle and location. Blurring out the liscense plate numbers wouldn't affect that. If a person is carefree enough to be willing to share personal details of their life, what they drive, the city they live, the place they work, the stuff in their trunk, etc..., then what difference does a liscense plate picture make anymore?

I get that some people want to remain 100% anonymous. Those people don't start threads like these. So, for people that are willing to share of themselves online, what greater harm is done with a liscense plate image when so many other personal details are public?
