    A couple of years ago I started carrying an AR-7 rifle (.22 cal., 8 rd. mag) in the built-in tool box in the back seat of my Toyota Tacoma. The good folks at Toyota left enough room for the gun (folded of course), an axe, saw, tools, rope, binoculars and a lot of other stuff for an off-road excursion gone bad. Most of you know this niffty little rifle stores in it's own plastic stock and is only 15 inches long when stored. Am I breaking the law? I have 3 mags for it and don't keep them loaded.

    You should be fine because it's not a handgun. I had a rifle rack behind the seat of my pickup when I was in high school. You also wouldn't violate any local loaded carry ordinance.

    Oh yeah, high school and the gun rack, remember it well. We had a large farm in those days and I'd keep a .22 Winchester Mod. 06 behind the seat of the old Chevy '61 Apatche 10. As I remember, I didn't even lock it, no gun of course. Thanks for the reply.
