    I broke off my 7-pin.
    I've got a 2006 DCSB and I'm looking for a solution to my 12 gauge laying across my back seat when I go duck hunting. It fits the window, so I'm primarily looking at a window mount so I don't have to drill roof holes. Does anyone have any experience with either?/what are your preferences? Pictures are appreciated.

    I saw a guy fit a 12 gauge in the storage under the back seats of his double cab, He said it wouldnt work if the shotty had a stock though which im sure yours does. Maybe a tool box in the bed with a lock?

    I got mine from Wal-Mart.. it kinda just snaps in the window ledge. I dont know the brand but at least you know the store. I think I only spent about $20 on it.

    If you're just using it while hunting and want something you can remove easily when you're done, I'd go with a behind the seat rack. Simple to install and remove, storage for three guns, and not something you can see without looking in the vehicle.

    Thanks for the advice @AWorthyOpponent and @ST3VE and the great pics, i checked out the one in Wal-Mart, but now I'm leaning toward a ceiling mounted rack, anyone have any gripes or good things to say about ceiling mounts?

    Interested in the ceiling mount as well.
    I have the behind the seat models like above and a dual window mount.

    It has ends like this one http://www.ezmountcorp.com/model110.html

    hmmmmm.....camo......nice I may have to order that....

    The ends slip under the rear window seal and my shotgun fits in the bottom mount. I use the top mount for hats, dog bandannas etc.
    The behind the seat one seems to get used more for tp, water bottles etc. since the dogs are usually in the back of the cab.

    We normally just case the guns and slide them under the max 4 dog bed and against the back of the cab when duck/goose hunting.

    None yet! It's new!
    Don't advertise. You got something in the truck, you case it and you put it out of sight.... at least if you're anywhere around civilization. It's just an advertisement for someone to break into your truck. Sometimes I wonder if it's even wise for me to have an NRA sticker on my back window.

    My dad has a gun rack that has suction cups on it. It works pretty good, but his old truck is a single cab, and every once in a while if there was a big temp swing, they would un suction themselves and smack you in the back of the head... Other than that, they work great! lol.

    I agree...no one needs to know that I carry guns, legally. No need for NRA stickers but I do wear NRA gear.

    I would never advertise anything about guns on my vehicle, but I live in Massachusetts.

    1) It's an invitation to be broken into.
    2) It's an invitation to get hassled by the Gestapo.

    I love getting the knowing head nod from old men who look at my hat in the dash. also its a hat which can be removed when I'm in seedy areas. condition yellow always be aware of your surroundings.

    Might be worth checking out what the law is in your state. I haven't seen the law myself outhere in PA, but I have been told on many occasions that visible gun racks in trucks aren't legal. CO might be different/same
