I remember when I was a kid seeing people drive around with either a shotgun or a rifle in the back window of their truck. Now I'm getting old but I'm not overe the hill...yet. Can someone tell me why we don't see that very much anymore? Is it because the guns are much more likely to be stolen nowadays, or is there some law prohibiting carrying firearms in the back window of your pickup truck, or is it just socially unacceptable, or is it for some other reason altogeather. I just remember it being much more prevalent 25 years or so ago.

Probably all the dang thieves around. That's some of my best memories of getting picked up by my papaw in his 69 Ford long bed and putting the rifles in the window rack to go hunting.
