    Trying to figure our a relatively secure way to store a long gun in my extended cab 09 (annoying back seats) tacoma. A cased mini 14 or pump shotgun would fit widthwise, but I'm trying to come up with something a little more secure. Does anyone sell a "vault" or toolbox type thing that might work - I would like a container I can bolt or at least cable down.

    On my last truck, I had a toolbox, but don't want to give up bed lengh with this truck since its a little smaller than I'm used to.

    You could look at a narrow tool box such as this UWS slimline...

    I'm bookmarking this thread. I've got product info from SHOT Show last month sitting in my office at work regarding hard cases that will secure to a vehicle floor (i.e. truck bed).

    When I get back into the office on Tuesday, assuming no one else posts info on the company I'm thinking of (I can't recall the name), I'll post info here.

    There is also Truck Vault, but they're quite expensive: http://www.truckvault.com/

    I don't know how it would work for your vehicle, but there is a solution for securing an AR (and probably a Mini 14) in an 05+ double cab.

    The rifle will slide into the underseat compartments, but it is easy to scratch the parkerizing on the barrel. For security, I found an open-ended adjustable 3/8" cable lock from Master called the Python. I found it at Lowes for around $20 with an 8' cable. It's a beefy plastic-coated cable, and will just fit through the ejection port and magazine well of an AR15. That can then be looped through a frame-attached securing point, in my case an unused LATCH point. Both the upper and lower halves of the AR are secured, even if someone tries to disassemble the rifle.

    The whole thing is completely invisible to the outside, and about as secure as I could find without much drilling and vehicle modification.

    to hide it out of the way in a double cab you could cut out the inner edge of the black shelf thing behind the rear seats, allowing a long gun the fit back there.
