right now my solution to carrying my rifle and shotgun in my cruiser, usually 80 is to put it in a case and lay it in the back. just wondering what kind of setups people have, 40, 60, 80, whatever, would like to see or hear some space saving ideas that keep the gun out of the way.

we dont have any case law here in wyoming, so we can just put it in a rack and carry.

I installed one of those standing double rifle holders right where the rear heater would go. It worked alright, but took some bracing to keep it from rattling and shaking around. I didn't have jump seats, so I thought about putting some holders on my rollbars.

Someone(maybe look at Cabeles(sp) makes a deal that fits on the back of the front seats, you slide your rifle into it, but you must pull it out thru the rear doors.

I keep a Glock securely tucked against the parking brake lever. It never moves - even offroad.

I bought a upright double gun rack from sportsmans warehouse (made by rugged trail) and mounted it on the cross bars under my seat that connect horizontally between the roll bar stringers. It works great and the rifles are very secure. I don't have a digital camera but if you want pictures let me know and I will borrow a camera

Is that a Thompson? Nice.

I just toss the long guns in the back. I'd rather not advertise the presence of guns in the rig. Other than the NRA and GOA stickers, of course ;).

Look at the cop supply shops, they got some neat racks for mounting long guns, they all have locks as well.

I have been trying to get a picture for you but my friend with a digital camera is on leave. I just used mine this past week during hunting season. I was crossing a field to pick up a deer that a hunter had shot and I didn't expect a 16 in dia log to be laying in the middle of the field, after the "ruff" landing I looked at my rifles expecting to see a pile of guns instead they were securely in the rifle rack, unlike the other stuff in the cruiser they hadn't moved. I am sold. One of a few times when you spend money and get more than you expected. The rugged trail dual rifle rack is available at sportsmans warehouse which I believe is owned by bass pro shops.
