I'm wondering if anybody has any info or ideas on a suitable gun rack for my 91 Legacy wagon. I had a rack in one of my pick-up trucks that held two rifles overhead. It was the NUTS! I most always have a rifle or two with me and it would be slick to stow them someway nice-nice instead of leaning on the passenger seat or bouncing around the back.

man it's been a long while since someone has brought that up (it was back when we were on EXboard) but you could make a system to hang it overhead in the cargo area or IIRC there should be some mounting points for a net of some sort in the cargo floor so you could theoreticaly make a rack to mount to those and hold your rifles/shotguns

If you like the styly of rack you see in the pics of the wagon, I can replicate a set for you....?

 

I built a set for a wagon I hunted out of last year....worked out great.....:)

 

Let me know, John.....

I'm sorry gentlemen, the NRA officials will be by shortly to revoke your membership. Please do not leave the premises.

Sounds like fun to me. :D

 

I've got one out of my truck I'm thinking about modifying to install in my Hatch. I was going to shorten it and mount it on the back of the rear seat. That way with the seat folded down it's easy to reach behind and grab in a hurry. You never know when it might come in handy out on the trails. :lol:

 

Psst John, check your PMs.

Mudrat, I have no doubt you could fabricate something along those lines. Trouble is, the rear seat in my Subie is ALWAYS folded down. I tote two beagles around with me and seldom have use for the passenger seat, let alone the rear, I need the deck space.

Just go to the local police supply and get the kind that mounts the gun vertically at the dash. No concealed issues to worry about and people won't cut you off very often.

I'm thinking the Cabelas overhead two gun might work if I mount it, either cross or longways in the rear. Theres no way theres enough headroom up front. The overhead is sweet because it does a decent job of concealing the guns from casual view. Theres enough guns on the street as it is, I've no interest in adding mine!

The rack does seem a bit spendy at $60 bucks plus shipping. I hate paying shipping based on price. Actually, I hate paying shipping period. I'm a cheap motherchicken, I know. http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/links/link.jhtml?id=0005330220670a&type=product&cmCat=search&returnString=No=0&hasJS=true&Nty=1&Go.y=9&Ntx=matchall&Go.x=23&Ntt=gun+rack&N=4887&QueryText=gun+rack&noImage=0&_D%3AhasJS=+&_DARGS=%2Fcabelas%2Fen%2Fcommon%2Fsearch%2Fsearch-box.jhtml.22&Ntk=Products&returnPage=search-results1.jhtml

Wow you are right in the middle of the park! I went to the NYS Ranger School in Wanakena right beside Cranberry Lake on the Oswegatchie. Good times....anyhow, just saying hi :)

Cranberry Lake is some sweet country, the state campground there is my favorite in all the park. Great fishing too! That whole area is not so over-run like its gotten around here. Been here 11 years, but will be moving to North Carolina in a couple weeks.

Turns out the overhead mounts via sheet metal screws, so it requires a double roof. If I'm not mistaken, the Subie does not have that. Possibly it could be mounted to a cross member, but I've no idea what the roof construction is under the headliner.Back to the drawing board......
