    OK, how about a beat around general purpose truck gun. My old Savage Model 24, 22 mag over 20 gauge.

    Ha ha ha ha... There's like 2 guns in this thread that can be called a truck gun.. Mine. 22 mag, either a beat up 15 year old CZ or my Henry 22 Mag.. Neither gets the love. But bang around in the truck a couple of times weekly.

    An even better herd of wild pigs gun. One shot from front to back and it is instantly gutted.

    Who makes that ? The bolt handle is the correct side for my usage. (Right eye injury.)

    Used to keep a .22 mag in the truck. Now depending on what's in season, I rotate...Always have the G30 on my hip though. My RAR in commie-30 would make a good knock-around truck rig.

    Now that is what I consider a truck gun , I have never been able to shooting flying food with a rifle. I have taken many Grouse with a small hole while they are budding at dusk...The old Savage has it all covered.

    I inherited three 24`s a year ago. .22lr/ 410, .22mag/ 410 and a .222/ 20 ga. They all saw time in some trucks or trunks. Pop- pop and my Dad`s. Jeff

    That's a great collection right there . I would love to find a nice .222/20 gauge , have seen a few but they were too rough . Have you shot the .222 enough to have to have an idea of the accuracy potential ?

    Hi daleboy, Short answer is no. All three guns have an issue and it`s hard to get a smith in this area to work on them. Mostly because of the cost. But the good news is the .222 has the least issues. Broken buttplate and a missing selector button if I remember right.I will dig them out of storage and access. I`ll let you know how it shoots if or when I find some ammo. I do know my Dad shot turkeys and groundhogs with the .222.Have a good one and be safe. Jeff

    3374DC65-81BF-4E94-9683-748ABEEF7A7F.jpeg Guess it depends on just how the "truck gun" is used. This 20" T/C 17AH is always in the truck during varmint shooting season. I like how you can drive around with it open between the seat and the console, one in the chamber, and be real quick into action. It's short and easy to handle in the cab and also a great window gun. The forend works well against the A-pillar or a window sill when quick shots are the thing. I don't worry about dings or dents. I've used it on about every kind of varmint and also for hours at a time when the ground rats were thick, or we found a nice spot of prairie dogs. I couldn't even begin to estimate how many rounds have been through that since '93. A lot. Love that thing. 3374DC65-81BF-4E94-9683-748ABEEF7A7F.jpeg
