I had my truck searched by a cop once.

I had two 1911 45 autos in a sleeping bag in a cargo box mounted in the bed.

The cop picked up the sleeping bag during the search and set it aside never knowing the guns were rolled up in the bag where they would not be damaged.

Later i became friends with thee cop and a few years after he retired i told him about the guns being in the sleeping bag that he had handled.

We got a good laugh about it.

I had my car pulled over and searched 49 years ago. I was young and went to visit a friend whose neighbor was being surveilled by MEG .

I know now that I should have refused the search. I had three friends in the car, two I did not know well, which in retrospect, could have been a problem .

The police who pulled me over, a bunch of them, lied about why they pulled me over and spent 45 minutes tearing into every corner of the passenger compartment of the car and making surprised pronouncements whenever they found something.

Like....WHATS THIS.. ??

For example, a Weston light meter in a leather case, roll of VW tools, or a complete CB radio installation behind the rear seat. (VW Karmann Ghia). There was nothing illegal for them to find. It was all theatrics designed to get one of us to "fess up" on who knows what.

They separated all of us and grilled everyone.

Funny I don't recall them looking into the trunk or engine compartment.

I tell folks today, don't voluntarily submit to a search. You have no idea what they might find, that someone else left in your car, previous owner, your parents pills, etc.

Aftermarket speaker grill on door. Use velcro to keep it in place. A plastic speaker enclosure can hold a pistol.

If vehicle has a center mounted speaker on top of dash, then a 6 x 9 speaker grill can cover a hole large enough for full size pistol.

Bottom of center console can be cut out slightly smaller than its floor. A piece of plastic, especially if fuzzy like in a lot of consoles can do a great cover up there.

I can assume this could be possible. Just because one of my bug out vehicles is a Suburban doesnt mean anything. Of course I would have no first hand knowledge of something like this to work.

Every vehicle is different,but the top of my dash gets pretty hot.Either running the heater on defrost,or the sun in the summer.Heat "shouldn't" affect a firearm,...but......

Think I may move my spare tire outside on a bumper swing and redesign the factory well for a locking lid. I'm replacing the carpet anyways. I also like the shelf under the center console idea

After a look at GA OCGA 16-11-112, it is in regard to concealment of a person
for an unlawful purpose, controlled substances, or other contraband.

Law also mentions previous attempts to conceal all the above.

There's nothing in there about concealment of legal to own property being a crime.

I am pretty sure in New Mexico at the check stations at the highway they used a mirror on a stick to check the underside of our vehicle.

When I go on trips I will often loosen up inside trim panels and and pack the body full of emergency items:chains, jacks, water, antifreeze, oils, trans fluid, break fluid, spare bearings and grease, canned goods and so on. Then snap the panels back in place. That way I have lots of extra emergency supplies without taking up interior room in the van.

Lasers, I thought they only did that at prisons and in the movies. I have never seen that in real life. Of course I never drove thru Nazi occupied New Mexico. I still think it could be overlooked but might have to look for a new placement.

Be careful with those hidden compartments, some States have Laws concerning them. Even though Texas doesn't have laws against them hidden compartments in vehicles have been used as excuses to impound them even though no Laws were otherwise broken.

U.S.-Mexico border, a Webb County sheriff’s deputy pulled over a southbound car that Border Patrol agents had flagged for having hidden compartments. There was nothing in the compartments, but because deputies suspected it was tied to drug trafficking, they still seized the 2007 Nissan Altima. The driver wasn’t charged with a crime.

I have had a couple of used cars searched by local police as a "training opportunity" before I bought them. One alerted but nothing was found. It got returned to the owner.

(3) "Vehicle" has the same meaning as in section 4511.01 of the Revised Code and includes, but is not limited to, a motor vehicle, commercial tractor, trailer, noncommercial trailer, semitrailer, mobile home, recreational vehicle, or motor home.

(4) "Motor vehicle," "commercial trailer," "trailer," "noncommercial trailer," "semitrailer," "mobile home," "manufacturer," "recreational vehicle," and "motor home" have the same meanings as in section 4501.01 of the Revised Code.

Some states are even charging the person building the secret compartments. It's all a push to turn law abiding citizens into felons. It's back-door gun control.

Other states are saying it has to be used to hide criminal behavior (transporting drugs). It's just another charge the government can threaten you with. This is why good people cannot skip out on jury duty. When you do, you lose your chance to tell the government you don't buy into these type of laws.

Drive a black Trans Am and just outrun the smokies. Can't search what they can't catch.

There are several companies that sell customized inserts made for cars/trucks that give you secure storage. It doesn't have to be a "hidden" compartment to work.

A friend in the 70s used to keep his weed in a small metal container that he stashed in the air cleaner of his car. Just one wingnut to unscrew to reach it. The cops never disassembled his air cleaner to look for contraband and he was never caught.
