All,
I have an old Police 870 Riot Gun (20" CYL Wingmaster) that I would like to use as my truck / get home gun. I drive a 2009 F150 King Cab. Anyone have experience of suggestions securing the weapon? I am thinking under the rear seat with my BOB and the barrel removed. I do not like the idea of a bed toolbox, but I may have to use one under the softcover in the bed. Also, I am going to send the 870 to Guncat and have the barrel shortened to 18" and threaded for choke tubes so I can use a MOD choke. I will also have the bead replaced with a big ole fiber bead.
Thank you, looking forward to hearing about your truck guns....





Moderators, thank you for attention, if this is in the wrong forum, please move as necessary.

Could you drill 2 little holes behind the rear seat to mount it to the cab wall? Or what about in a sofr case behind the seat? I'd think a truck gun would be more useful assembled.

Agreed, keep the barrel on it.

I think I have a solution for you... One sec...

You don't have to drill any holes with the following...

HUGE +1

If you need it ASAP, will you have time to re-assemble the weapon?

I like the under the backseat idea item. Thanks and yes I will keep the barrel on it.

I think the under the seat box would be your best bet at keeping OPSEC. Out of sight and out of other people's minds.

I have a 2000 F-250, and I use an overhead rack from Big Sky. I ordered it from Cabellas. It is surprising how nobody notices my guns up there. I've had people that took a long time to notice it , and some not at all.

DU-HA works great, although you probably can't fit your bag in it. Get one anyway, and then get a storage box for the bed. Put the gun in the former and the bag and additional emergency gear in the latter.
