So I just bought a 2005 Durango. I got it for towing and other 4x4 needs, but last night I had an epiphany. The thing has a tool compartment behind the rear seats that normally holds tire irons and hitch tools and shit.
This compartment is 37 inches long, 6.5 inches tall, and 2.5 inches deep. This is, obviously, totally large enough to house some bitchin firepower.
I thought about tucking a Mossberg 500 JIC in there, but here's the problem: I am in kommiefornia. It's illegal for me to transport a loaded gun. It's not illegal for me to transport loaded magazines, they just cant be in the gun.
Obviously this makes a tube fed shotgun like the Mossy less desirable. If I needed to go for my truck gun I'd have to load the tube from a side saddle before being ready to go. This means something with a detachable mag is preferred. Given CA shitass gun laws that means no SBRs, no mags over 10 rounds, and no pistol grips unless the mag requires a tool to remove, what would you keep in this hidden compartment?

I'm doing a paper on the M-16 in Vietnam and am currently going through old transcripts of government hearings. Here's some stuff I thought /k/ might find interesting.
*Disclaimer - I don't hate the AR-15 platform or think it's better or worse than whatever else, I have no agenda, just thought you guys might want to read this*
"As you know, when I first got over here I was carrying an M-16. The weapon I had never did fire right until I worked it over and did some things to it that, I know, could have gotten me in trouble if anyone had told the wheels.
When I got my M-16 it would fire one round and that was it. IT would fail to extract the cartridge casing from the chamber and when the bolt came forward to strip another round out of the magazine there was no place to put the fresh round. The only thing that could be done then as to assemble the cleaning rod; pull the bolt to the rear; then use the rod to drive the spent cartridge out of the chamber." -- letter from GI in Vietnam
