For my situation I have a high probability that my truck could get broken into so rifles are out. Looks like my XDS is my best candidate because I'd be more upset to lose my sig.

Purchased the Micro Roni for my G19 after testing one out that a friend owned:

My criteria:
Stability to improve accurate rate of fire
As compact as possible
Take same Glock mags, to include the short mags that will not fit in an AR model 9mm platform
Effective range out to 50 meters: Must group within a pie plate size

I timed my 5 shot groups with my G19 and then in the Micro Roni. There was improvement with both accuracy and time which was a major concern for me regarding any system that locks a pistol into it would be susceptible to a loss in accuracy. I did not find this a factor.

It folds up and fits in the center console of my Ram 1500, easily fits in any pack. It works for me regarding I already have many Glocks.

Pros:
Compact: The most compact solution I have found to date.
Flexible modular platform for my already owned G19
Stable for accuracy and speed, but not by much
Cost: Not much of a jump in investment if you already own a Glock 19

Cons:
Cost: If you must purchase a Glock AND a Micro Roni, you will be north of $800

Stability: Though there is a measurable improvement in accuracy and speed, I ask myself: Should I just stick with my EDC Glock 19 as there is not much more in accuracy or speed?

In summary the decision came down to the fact that it opens up more options for optics and BUIS than there are for a Glock 19 and it is easier for the novice to fire with an acceptable degree of accuracy.

To me a truck gun is a $300 or less Pistol or shotgun that"s always in the vehicle. Has nothing to do with my EDC. You can build an AR pistol now for about $300 but, not sure I'd leave it in a truck.
Trucks are thief magnets looking for guns.

No, it’ll get stolen. Vehicles are almost as secure as tents.

My truck gun is a psa ar pistol 10.5" in 9mm that takes glock mags. My reason for the gun is that I EDC a g19 and also keep mags strategically placed in my truck so why not have something that takes the same mags and ammo as my EDC but can also be more accurate when I need it.

The advantage that should have been noted is that the AK with the unnderfolding stock can be fired but the AR with the folding adapter gets you only one shot if there's a round loaded.

This is kinda one of the advantages to the AK vs the AR in the "truck gun" category... disposability. An AR with a red dot, a lawtac folder, and all that other stuff gets to have a budget that's a bit too rich for my blood to risk getting stolen.

You make a valid point, but I see all stolen guns as the same. I dont want any of them stolen and out on the street to be used for crime. The risk is just too high for a full time gun in the vehicle for me, unless you have secure storage for it.

@Shwell11 : Some years ago I had one of my "bug out bags" stolen out of my vehicle, it didn't contain any guns, but did have some knives and a lot of high dollar gear in it. GPS, multi-tools, etc etc, I think when i added it all up, I lost about $2k worth of gear that day. And this was from my "safe" parking lot at work. I currently have a very solid lockup in my vehicle, I still don't leave expensive or dangerous things in it unattended for very long. This is especially true when I travel. Yea, it's a pain to unload the car into a hotel room for the night. A folding wagon helps a lot.

I will not leave a gun in my truck due to thieves. Until I am motivated to purchase a bullet proof security container that is solidly mounted to the truck, I will not leave it in there. I will not risk arming a criminal.
