I totally understand the rationale for wanting to pack one, I just was curious if there had ever been a situation where one was legitimately used. I carry a full first aid kit in my car and have even been in a situation where I have used a tourniquet on someone who had been in a traffic accident so it is easy to justify routinely carrying stuff like a FAK and fire extinguisher. However with a trunk gun it is harder to justify as I am unaware of a situation where one has been useful for anything over shooting a wounded animal on the side of the road.

All of that being said if I lived in the US I would still probably do it, I'm just not convinced that they are realistically something that will be useful to the point where it is worth the expense, space, inconvenience and risk of carrying one.
