    I am looking for a used police style shotgun mount for a vehicle. Any ideas on where to get one. Online stores are LE only. I had one, and sold it like an idiot. Now I really want one again. Thanks.

    a. It depends on where it's mounted in the vehicle, there are several types available, (trunk mount, floor mount) and whether you can see inside the vehicle. My truck is pretty hard to see into unless you were planning on breaking into already.

    b. breaking in is one thing and getting something valuable before I get back is another.

    If you think that, you are paranoid. I have left guns in a regular old gun rack for years, no issues. A lot of it is the look of your vehicle. Mine is intimidating and also hard to see into, being lifted with dark windows. Also, the mount I want is locking.

    A car or truck is inanimate and not intimidating.Thieves could care less about your big tires and tinted windows,sorry.
    I always think the guy is 5'2 and has a small...never mind.
    Not intimidating

    Now a early Caddy with the keys in the ignition?
    Intimidating.
    Definitely says "swimmen wit da fishes"

    If you can't see the rack from outside the vehicle then nobody will have a clue that there might be a firearm inside.There are many mounts or sleeves that hang on the seat back that can be secured by a cable lock.
    Not those silly bike locks,a nice,thick cable and a high quality lock from the seat mount to the action.
    Otherwise one of those nice under seat gun vaults come to mind

    Maybe a bungee cord hooked to the heater vents? Layin it on the dash?

    Thanks for your concerns, but I'm not worried. I did not ask to be talked out of wanting one, just if anybody has one or knows where I can get one. Do police cars get broken into and the ARs and shotguns stolen? Nope, cause the police car intimidates the crook. It's not for going to the store either, or my daily commute.

    A lifted truck is about as intimidating as a box of Junior Mints. The look of your vehicle DOES have something to do with it, however...I'll bet your lifted truck says "I have money".
