I carry a rifle in the truck everyday and have carried many calibers but I always keep coming back to the 243. I carry a Tang safety Ruger 77 with a 22 inch barrel and a Styer Pro Hunter with a 26 inch barrel. The 77 is by far the handiest but the Styer is the most accurate and really handles the fast moving lighter bullets I prefer. I'm actually thinking about picking up another rifle and it's going to be a Ruger American in 22-250 and I'll mount an older model Leopold 3x9 on it. Good price on the rifle and more than half the price of the Styer. A truck rifle for me is a coyote rifle since that's it's main purpose around here and it's going to get banged up and scratched up. If deer were on the menu I'm pretty sure the 7mm-08 would be riding beside me. Who am I fooling if deer or on the menu there will be one of my Weatherby's riding gently beside me.

It's hard to beat a lever action in the truck. A trapper M94 44 magnum will carry 10 rounds of thump.

My truck (or Mule) gun is a Mossberg MVP Patrol Rifle in 5.56/.223. It has a 16 1/4" barrel and I removed the flash hider and replaced it with a thread protector. It is short and easy to maneuver in the cab and uses any AR magazine. I currently keep it loaded with 70 grain SP bullets so I am ready for coyotes or hogs. When I finally shoot up all the 70's, I think I will switch to Sierra's 65 grain Gameking bullets.

As cheap as ARs are, one with a 1:8 or 1:7 twist seems the clear answer. With a colapsed stock, they get quite maneuverable.

Yep carry a PSA AR15 in my truck. Buzz watch their daily deals and you can buy upper and lower separately and put them together. You can get a really good deal.

I used to think AR pistols were stupid until the SB PDW brace came out and the ATF clarified the shouldering thing. I now keep a 7.5" AR pistol, talk about a small package. No way I was gonna keep my registered SBR in the vehicle to get stolen but a cheapo AR pistol works well

I never understand the utility of an AR....until I got one. Then another. As has already been said: lightweight, compact/maneuverable, cheap and reliable. Mine carries a 20 round mag in the truck, with some 30's in the console for "just in case."

Not my favorite guns in any sense - except for meeting my personal criteria for a "truck gun."

But for 30+ years it a Marlin lever.

Marc, try a 10 round mag.
It becomes even smaller, and more maneuverable.

I've also been carrying a Rossi .357 for several years. However, I'm thinking about swapping it out for an AR15.

If itís a cheap AR, the Rossi is probably worth more.
