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.

I would rather be near the birds than waste my whole life trying to fly.

What he said. If you want one within arms reach you can now get them that bolt to the top of the cab and you can't really see them and they're just hanging right above your head within easy reach.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

For me its about having my stuff stolen. I could care less what others think about having it in the window. Not to mention I would get fired at work, arrested picking the kids up and have my window smashed out at Wal-mart by a crack head looking for a fix. I think I'll just cover them up when they ride along, its less of a headache.
