Heck yea, my bone stock unmodified 1999 Ford Escort doing the same out by Christmas Valley a few summers ago, its just more fun in a car. Ive got a rifle rack mounted to my shopping cart roof rack but its holding a shovel and a Pulaski. Got the cart off of highway 99 after a car hit it.Preach it. Back in the day I'd baja an OLD Ford Festiva all over. Front wheel drive, light as a feather and the whole bottom was like a sled, it'd skim right over sagebrush and such that'd stop a jacked 4x4.. and it cost $300.
That coulda been me. Winchester Pre-64 Model 70 and a Savage 99.I saw an older model truck last Sunday night in Oregon City with two rifles in a rack in the back window. I couldn’t make out what they were but it sure brought back memories of my dad’s truck with the rifle rack full.
I’m getting one of these for the Jeep Wrangler.... spreads across and braces up in the roll bars.while I don't have a rear window rack, I do intend to make an 'above the front seats' rack for the Prius. I'll be able to easily store a compact AR variant up there. Due to the height of the car, nobody would ever see it unless you knelt down and looked up but then the tinted windows blocks most of that view. Completely stealth.
When completed, should hold two rifles or possibly one shotgun and one AR pistol. That is a winter project.
They legalized it in Washington state....there have been several famous cases and in all/most of them the prosecutors declined on them. Can't get juries to convict.General degradation of honorable/moral society. You cant leave that stuff in plain sight and expect it to be there when you come back.
If they legalized shooting thieves - it wouldn’t be nearly an issue.
Can you cite some cases because as far as I am aware - use of deadly force in Washington state is not legally protected except for the defense of people from serious bodily harm, or to prevent felony acts from proceeding.They legalized it in Washington state....there have been several famous cases and in all/most of them the prosecutors declined on them.

Why not gun racks? My buddy in Seattle says homeless people and your regular thieves sometimes break out car windows just to steal the butts from your ashtray. Unfortunately, these days putting a rifle in plain sight in your vehicle is just an invitation to thievery. And a flag for the cops in some cases.
I was thinking about one of these pre-made, I'd need to flatten out the 'roll bar' C but that wouldn't be too hard to do so I could properly mount/secure. I'm curious of the depth and how far it hangs down. I sit low and back in the car anyway, behind the B-pillar so I don't think this would be an issue in my head clearance.
