Rifle storage in a ST

So there is an offroad park/ shooting range not far from here. Id like to take the 90 and do some shooting but need a place to store and secure an AR-15. Anybody have some creative ways to lock up your rifles in your 90 STs?

that is one creative solution and yes of course you are welcome to come. is there a tuffy box or something specific to rifles that might go behind the seats for example?

How much of a deterrent to you need it to be? A locked pelican case with one of these through the handles and around the seat base would keep someone occupied for a while, unless they came equipped with large bolt cutters or hack saw.

Thats not a bad idea. I really just want something that allows me to walk into a gas etc without worrying someone will walk off with my gun.

I made a 3 sided box that was open to the rear door. Mine was made of wood you could get one made from steal or make one of the jeep ones fit. http://www.4wheelerssupply.com/catal...ducts_id/72927

That would make it tough to get my dog in an out of the tailgate. She is 130lbs so not much fun to lift over the box. Id like something that went right behind the front seats.

How about the LR gun box? I think that bolts to the floor, if not, I'm sure you could do it.

Also, where is this shooting range/offroad park you're talking about? Sounds like a fun time.

Is your AR fixed buttstock or collapsible?

There is a gun case available at Cabelas and the such, that you could bolt on top of the rear of the tub, b ut I do not think it will accomodate the fixed buttstock.



or leave it on plain view and carry a nice pistol Uzzi, so when the bastard tries to take it , make a colander out of him

LOL

John,

Do you know what length is your barrel?

I have a Bushie M4, Carbine with the stock closed, 14.5 barrel and the suppressor on is just right for that space, and my buddy's AR with match barrell and fixed BS , did not fit .

I am now looking for a Pelican 1700 to mount it on the tub in the 110

Most Bushies with fixed stock were made with the 20" barrell nd a LOA of 40", while the Carbine Collapsable stock and 14.5 barrel is only 32" LOA

I had this built a few years back for the range

Also - if it's just an AR15 and not a long gun - you can get by with a smaller lock box as the as the AR15 breaks down with just two pins.

In my exMOD I have a small job box held in with chains in the back.
Looks like the small one here 13"x19"x32"

I did not think you could have guns in California anymore.
