I am thinking about putting a shotgun mount in the trunk of my '99 CVPI. Any suggestions?

Thanks

I really like the ones that let you mount one over your head inside the car and are unlocked with a hidden electric push button or key.

Can you just picture the look on a cops face as he leens down to speak to you and see's that sucker on the roof...priceless.

Yes... check first to see if it's legal. I understand it'll be in the trunk, but couldn't that still be called "CCW"? Do you frequently find the need to use a shotgun while driving your '99 CVPI?

Oh yeah, cops LOVE stuff like that don't they? It just makes their job so much fun. If I were a cop and I saw that, you'd be quickly separated from your weapon as I extracted you from your car at gunpoint. I think the look on YOUR face would be... priceless.

But .30 calibre twin machine guns mounted behind the front signals are so much more effective..

Dam Coop, you obviously dont know humor when you see it, what crawled up your a$$ and died? You ever see the commercial adds for the credit cards where they go through a senario and at the end the punch line is ..."Priceless", yeah, it was a spin off of that. If your that uptight you must really be a joy to be around.

After all we all know we'd rather see the look on an officers face when he see's these.

Assuming (yes, ASS U MEing) that the gun is unloaded and the chamber is open, you could not legally do anything about it. At least not in MI.

Same for NY. I have been pulled over b4 a couple of times with a load of weapons in the back seat that would make a swat team proud but was never "extracted at gun point". All were unloaded with actions open. Cop gave tham the look over a coulpe of times and payed much more attention but nothing even remotely bad ever happened. I guess some cops are just more professional and capable. Of course Mass is a state where gun owners are looked on as murderous, government overthrowing, kooks.

Bryan- I usually know humor when I see it, but I guess I've just seen too many "anti-cop" posts on CVN in the past. I have a number of friends who are cops and I have a deep respect for them and what they do. I get really b.s. when I read some of the crap that some people write about them in these forums. I admit I have a "short fuse" when it comes to certain subjects, and disrespect for those who endanger their own lives to protect mine is one of them. I'm sorry I did not recognize your humor for what it was. -Coop

I do not normally get involved in posts such as this, but Cooper is a good friend of mine in which case I'm ALWAYS going to come to the defense of. Coop was just making a point that the whole scenario wasn't as funny as others thought. This is NO reason to turn around and make a personal attack against him. Coop and myself spent a good deal of time in Canada and at other northeast meets and he's a great and fun person to be around and I think that EVERYONE who attended STAP or has met Coop in the northeast would agree. This is America so you can say what you want and do what you want, but try to respect other peoples opinions on the board, and if your going to disagree with them (which often does happen and makes life interesting) do it respectfully and not personally.

Put it on the inside of the trunk lid, and bracket it with a couple of Desert Eagles.

I DO appreciate the responses regarding legality and the question of need, but I really wasn't after a lesson in ethics as much as I wanted to know about available equipment to accomplish the task. I carry with me the little card issued by a government agency that allows me to carry weapons in my vehicle and well as concealed on my person, so let's get that out of the way. I just don't want the gun to bounce around and dent the car when I hit a big bump. Any actual suggestions would be appreciated. I truly value the input of my fellow CV.NET members.

They sell brackets to that mount to the inside of the deck lid, I know a couple dept's around here that use them and I have asked them about the mounts before, No complaints
