    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.

    Maybe where you are from. M2 is from Texas I believe and out here in Arizona, stuff like that is so common as to be almost boring.

    No, it's Florida...which is almost as bad. :supergrin:

    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. :whistling:

    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.

    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 :supergrin:

    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.

    You forgot your spade, zip-ties, handcuffs, tarp, ski mask, gloves and chloroform.

    Just joking.

    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.

    Dalton Wayne, if you ever have to bug out with the sks and the tac gear....

    ... I suggest you conceal it under a proper cover garment. :supergrin:

    Wouldn't want anybody to get the wrong idea about your intentions.

    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?
