Chuckle.  I spent a bit over a decade in western SD, Rapid City TBE.
It was rare to see a shotgun in those rear window racks, more likely a 
triplet of some boat hook 22 RF auto plus a pair of pre-64 Winchesters in 
some 'reach out and touch someone' calibers.  But my 52 Ford PU was a wee 
bit more discreet about it, a socket on the floor beside my left foot, with 
a bracket on the dash so the barrel was mostly hidden behind the front 
doorpost.  Very handy, 5 seconds including stopping time when game was 
spotted, to the thump of a meat hit echoing back at me.  All very quietly 
done if the door latches & hinges were well lubricated.  That fed my family 
well for about 10 years & 3 engine swaps.  A 52 with the I badge on the 
hood wasn't expected to hike the front end and run off and hide from more 
'modern' vehicles, but it could. ;-)

Cheers, Gene
