Another option is to "hide" it on the back seat in plain view

I prefer the word "creative".

Besides that, the Tommy drum is difficult to insert under pressure

My grand daughter when last here wanted a "gun".
The boys had all got theirs already.
Being me, I just tossed the keys to a few gun safes to her and said go pick one.

About 20 minutes later, she came back in dragging my former Thompson behind her.

Like these ideas. My thought is to keep it back in the tire well until the situation arises. Also, thinking of using an AK underfolder. I think this is a very legit thread the times we live in are getting pretty unusual.

I don't have a truck, but I do have a trunk. If I am going more than about 100 miles from home in my own vehicle, I usually carry an old Stag (lower) mated to one of the PSA "Premium" uppers w/carbine gas and a 14.7" CHF barrel that they sold several years ago. It isn't a thing of beauty, nor do I like it as much as a BCM or Colt, but it is reliable. And if I lost it to theft or an overzealous LEO, I would be a LITTLE less pissed than if I lost a BCM or Colt. I always keep a set of likely spare parts for an AR in the car, along with about 200 rounds loaded into mags. That way, all I have to do is just throw the rifle in when I am going out of town.

Don't really know where to put mine where it wouldn't be found easy but for pistols there is always this.

Since I remove airbags from my trucks will have to leverage the airbag drawer. Have quite a few hard guitar cases but mine are all well traveled with more anti establishment stickers. No peacefreak stuff. An especially good case to look for is electronic keyboard hard case. They will generally hold a long tactical turn bolt and battle rifle. When travelling and have long hair like me carrying a keyboard and guitar case in hotel gets zero attention. Whenever carry a pair of prairie dog rifles out West the keyboard case is critical.
