Transporting AirGun on Motorcycle
« on: October 03, 2017, 09:59:32 AM »
I bought a new to me Marauder .25, and had it shipped to work. Tried to time it where I'd drive my truck in, and throw the box in the camper shell. Well, USPS totally screwed with me on the delivery and tried to deliver over the weekend. I got it yesterday, only I rode my motorcycle in as I do most days.

This morning, I thought I'd strap on a two rifle pack I have, and ride in, and put the Marauder in it for the ride home tonight. I got it on, sat on the bike, and thought about this Military Looking thing, and considering what just happened in Vegas, I took it off. Decided I'll just drive the truck on Friday when traffic is a little lighter, and haul the rifle home.

Anyone here ever carry a long rifle, airgun or firearm on a motorcycle?  Am I just being paranoid or practical?

Sooner or later, you're going to need a scabbard for the bike. I don't ride bikes anymore (25+ years ago!!), but all sort of folks make them. I prefer the leathers ones, but padded nylon ones are available. Go to Amazon for pricing. Or, MidwayUSA, but only if they're having a sale.

When you're on the bike, with the gun visible, make sure you have your hunting license with you as added protection. I've gotten out of a tight spot several times because I had the license with me. Cops just don't like folks riding around with a gun really handy (out in the open), I guess.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Kolpin Gun Boots are some sort of plastic, with internal foam support. They're apparently what the ATV guys prefer. At least that is what my friend Ken uses, and he's an avid ATVer and hunter.

Break it down, only one bolt to remove stock. Wrap it up in a blanket or whatever and attach it to your Vespa. Out of sight, out of mind.
Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like.

Marauder is at work in it's shipping box. I'm home with a sick kid. Anyone have any measurements of the action by itself, and the stock by itself? I have a heavy canvas tripod bag that might work with the rifle broken down.
