Truck

The system holds an M4,Shotgun and handgun in your large vehicle:

Some issues I have with the product:

  • It’s aluminum.  Yea I know it’s to save weight, but that’s at the cost of having easy as butter to break into.
  • The lock mechanism looks weak.  Seriously, an L-bracket secured by two screws?
  • It opens up only in the direction of the driver, creating a barrier to the passenger.  I think i’d rather have it open forward, so the passenger could quickly get a gun too.
  • The price.  For $2400 I wish it at least came with an AR500 steel plate in the lid so that a person could take cover behind it if they got ambushed.
  • It’s tied into your factory door locks.  So does that maen if a thief smashes the window and hits the unlock button he can have all your firearms?

As far as my last gripe goes, I know it’s not meant to be a safe… but it very well could be one if it the product was done properly and at least provide the thief with some barriers to entry.  Lastly it appears their target market for this product is law enforcement, not the regular guy.  I don’t know how much of a problem law enforcement has with vehicle weapon theft, but i’m sure the issue is not that widespread considering how stupid someone would have to be to do that.

For an extra $205 you can order this in your new Ram 1500:

Interesting idea, but I still think keeping the guns discretely inside the cab is a better idea.

Also, call me crazy but having the guns point directly at the drivers back seems like an accident waiting to happen. It’s only a matter of time before someone might put a loaded rifle in that box and it gets rattled around enough, or something hits the trigger and it goes off.  Having them point out the side or the back of the truck wouldn’t really be beneficial in lots of cases either if such a discharge were to occur.

An armored, 4-door, 4-wheel drive, 6.0 turbo diesel truck capble of running on JP-8 and other military fuels. This Non-Standard Tactical Truck (NSTT) can be internally transported in a CH / MH 47 helicopter. Built from the ground-up with the intent of being armored and operating in unforgiving terrain, the NSTT can operate in any denied environment.

Looks like a capable truck, that’s for sure. The suspension looks to be a bit soft, especially on the track at the 1 minute mark.  I suppose they likely go with a standard style suspension and try to make it decent on most terrain, rather than a complex adjustable one that would be a pain to repair.

The big WTF point in the video is at 1:09 when two guys are in the truck taking live fire from an AK-47. Like Solomon mentioned in his post, why the hell would you do that?  I get the fact that you are confident in your product, but really?? Putting a camera inside would have sufficed.  I’m surprised those guys agreed to something so stupid.

A lady was telling her neighbor that she saw a man driving a pick-up truck down the interstate, and a dog was hanging onto the tailgate for dear life!

She said if the pick-up truck driver hadn’t been going so fast in the other direction, she would have tried to stop him.

A few weeks later, her neighbor saw this truck at the local Bass Pro Shop.

The pick-up truck driver is a local TEXAS taxidermist with a great sense of humor!

Taxidermists are a twisted lot anyway!

And it is not a dog in the first place; it is a Coyote.

Can you imagine how many people tried to stop this guy?

From AR15.com user ObsoleteMan:

It started with some inspiration from the video game “Army Of Two”.
The main characters use weapons equipped with shields.
I thought these gun-shields were an innovative, if not entirely practical, idea.

The functional components: A railed AR, Havoc 37mm Flare Launcher, Beta C-Mag

Extra components: Molded plastic grip with horizontal & vertical gripping points.

Just got around to putting up another video.

I continuously ran over one of my Tactical Stock Adapters for around half an hour. It was clear nothing was going to happen and I figured I had enough footage, so I cut it up and just showed a few of the different angles so it wouldn’t be as boring.

The plastic is fiber reinforced so it can handle much more weight then a Honda Ridgeline, but it was the heaviest vehicle I had access too.
