Mr Rohr asked a question to Mr Murphy:


Would you tell us about your arrangement with Michael Kincaid, who illegally sold this Performa 990 semiautomatic to Kevin Peltier smack-dab out of the trunk of his car.

What is the meaning of "out of the trunk of his car"?
Does it mean weapon is placed in the out of the trunk of his car?
