8 years ago I carried my rifle through the lobby and into the elevator of a motel here in Texas. The clerk was Okay with it and I had gotten prior permission. The rifle was in a case but the butt/stock was sticking out for all the world to see.I wonder if you can still do that?It’s a shame our world has changed so much that no one, even down here, has a gun rack in their truck anymore. While a rear window gun rack would prove to short for most long rifles, there are models that would fit. Growing up, there wasn’t a truck that didn’t have a rifle rack and most would have an old Winchester hanging in it. I still had a gun rack in my old pickup until the early 80’s, carried a rifle until then too. Then it all just disappeared.
