So i have been scratching my head trying to figure out how and where to mount my shotgun. I never leave my house without my .40 cal (on my waist) and i always have my shotgun in my car. So here is what i decided to do:






The materials i got were:

A galvanized steel bar
2, 2" 10mmx1.25 bolts
4 bolts, washers, lock washers, and nuts (whatever size...small 5/16"?)
2 quick fists
Black spray paint

I cut the steel bar into 3 pieces. 2 of the pieces were about 3-4" and were the mounts extending from the seat bolt (10mm) up to the steel bar that the quick fist were going to be mounted on. I connected the vertical mounts to the horizontal mount using the smaller bolts. Painted it, positioned the quick fists and put it in the FJ!

*****Check your state laws to see if this is legal! It is NOT legal in many states******

Good idea, but like Juan said, take it one step further and put a lock on it. Galls and Santa Cruz Gun locks are available. It's cheap insurance. Run a wire to a timer switch. Hit the button and you have 8 seconds to open the lock. They also come w/ either a Medeco or cuff key back back up.

Nice set-up, especially if you don't have any kids sitting back there with wet-salt-stained winter boots.

This is my set-up;






Draw-back is that mine isn't as quickly accessible as yours.

I agree. Loaded, or not, keep muzzle away from you. Nice job.

I like how the trigger is guarded on both sides there. Not sure I like the location blocking the passenger seat but its better than standing it upright for the world to see.



Seems like there was an article in the paper about how a guy had his shotgun on the seat of his truck and the dog jumped in and on the seat, and well, shot the owner. Paw hitting the trigger.
