    I was wondering about the legalities of carrying rifles and more to the point, carbines like the kel-tec sub 2000 in a car or truck.

    When I am hunting and that kind of thing, I generally just toss my rifle in my rifle rack. I carry my handgun for my self-defence weapon, but since I bought my sub2k it has opened up other possibilities.

    I was wondering about having it in my truck when I am running around. Can a person toss it under the seat and conceal it? I have my concealed carry permit, but am not sure about something like that. Anyone know the answer? Thanks.

    My initial thought is it would be illegal in Oregon because it’s not a "Handgun" but rather a "Sub-Rifle". In Oregon a CHL only permits you to conceal a Handgun. But I may be wrong...
