Growing up in, and coming from a state (AZ) where open carry (must be in plain sight) was always allowed, I used to just lay my pistol on the front dash, right in front of the steering wheel. Kind of...

Yeah me too,

I'm afraid your description of "bucks" isn't very useful in terminology. WHAT, exactly, is "bucking"? The trailer is hopping up and down, or side to side, or?

OR,

Sure, it will do it, but it's not going to be happy about it. Good idea to take your time. Make sure the brakes and tires are in excellent condition on that truck (especially the brakes), since you...
