How have people adapted their Gator for shooting out the front window and for carrying a rifle/shotgun? At present the front window only opens about 6inches. Any and all ideas appreciated

I have a Kawasaki Mule without a front windscreen. I've mounted a cross-bar - a 1-1/2" pipe - between the A-pillars. This is wrapped with 1/2" thick foam pipe-lagging. Makes a great shooting rest. A rifle rack sits under the roof, fixed between the front and rear cross members of the roll cage. If I'm out and about with two rifles or a rifle and a shotty, I keep the primary in a soft bag on the passenger side and the other in the rack. If I'm out doing other stuff and have a rifle with me just in case, I keep it in the rack. Will put up some pics later on today.
Working on a more of a quick-draw scabbard but not there yet.

Cheers

Some pics of the rest and rack. The connecting bracket thingy is normally used in chain mesh fencing. Also a pic of the rack supplier.

Cheers

In the past I've don't similar to ANTSA but instead of foam fixed around the bar used a sheepskin paint roller cut down the length of it. The inside plastic glided along the bar allowing it to freely slide left to right for a nice pan. But as Ronin says just stand in the back and get someone else you trust to drive.
