I'm guessing this is a "troll" post but maybe not.
Find out what the Federal, State, and Local laws are regarding this before you do it. You probably do not want to be arrested on weapons charges.

There are so many things that make me want to say "not a great idea".

I'm a gun enthusiast, too, so don't take my comments to sound anti-gun.

Personally, I don't like the idea of a gun rolling around on a vehicle locked and loaded with the safety off.

It could discharge accidentally during a rollover or accidental contact with your culvert, shock from impact (a remote possibility, I acknowledge) could cause one.

The stability of the vehicle would be compromised, too.  A heavy item like that would affect the suspension quite a bit, the COG would be completely altered.  There are bound to be other issues I'm not thinking of at the moment.

Not to mention it just goes against every bit of firearms training I've ever had in my life, civilian or military, to let a hot weapon go out of my hands downrange, where I potentially can't control its discharge.

I believe it would easy use a servo to pull trigger and mount a small camerathat will work with your phone align the camera up to sight gun in. I will be attempting this feature in upcoming months. lets go rabbit hunting!!!
LOL i thought it would be cool to put a Paintball gun on a body

Excellent advice!

Why arm the extremists who are trying to take away our right to own firearms?...On second though if you really have a .22 pistol I hope someone takes it away from you(parents?)? If you keep posting like this you will likely have to remind people you are 44 years old a lot. If you have come to your senses why don't you go edit this idea out? []
