Well armed hippies? I doubt you guys are very dirty.

I don't have room for a gun safe in a bus so my Python is in a drawer under my chuds. How would you keep a rifle or shotgun out of sight in a bus?

I've been thinking about this when I finally do my build. I want to build in several safes for both pistols and rifles (as well as valuables). I'm thinking a normal sheet steel rifle safety locker built into a wall, a floor cutout or a piece of furniture will work well (the kind you can buy from Dicks Sporting Goods and other stores). It is light enough to handle easily to get it in place, but can be bolted or welded into place and "integrated" into the build to hide it.

robin make sure you never get pulled over with it out of sight unless its in locked box. mucho trouble in wrong states. In oregon you cant have it hidden unless locked. unless you have the CC permit.

Yeah, I like to leave the guns at home when I'm traveling. My protection system isn't for traveling. It's for when I'm out in the woods, but yes I know what you mean. Apparently it's really easy for veterans to get CC permits, but I don't have one. I'm thinking blanks would actually work for deterring wildlife, considering you could actually see them coming.

I think the chinook drive train would lend itself better to bus life, all the moving parts on the roof, plus folding rotor disks at the push of a button, its a lot of work to fold the 53 blades lol
