    I carry in an IWB holster at 3 o'clock. This works well for me when I'm driving, as I also have ready access to the weapon, even with my seat-belt on.

    Car gun

    I keep a Beretta 21 in a little compartment in my car. It's kind of in front of the center console, below the radio and gear shift. Perfect size to fit the eretta, not obvious, and easy to open, but the release button is not obvious if you don't know it's there. The gun and a spare magazine in the compartment also serve for pocket carry if for some reason I'm not carrying a full size gun. I make a short trip to work, less than 2 miles, and I don't carry at work, but I might need to make a quick stop for gas or a drink or bagels or something on the way to or from.

    If it said McDonald's (coffee) on the side that would be a dangerous weapon.

    I keep mine in the center console inside a rubber holder I have rigged for it when I am not carrying in its usual holster.
    Yoda, I am, yes.

    Personally I want my weapon on me at all times. I think there are too many ways to become separated from my weapon if it isn't on my person. I practice presentation from my IWB holster while seated and belted in my vehicle.

    That's just me.

    One option is belly bands on the outside of your clothing while you are driving. It is simple to take on and off, and you can access your gun very quickly. I wear my gun on my weak side like a cross-draw. You don't want it in front of you where if you have a wreck you will be slammed into the gun.

    The cup holsters are a good item. We retail them. They are VERY cool.

    Local trips...gun stays IWB.
    Long trips...second gun is tucked in seat.
    Local trips through a bad area...second gun is under my thigh.

    How do you keep it from sliding out when you have to brake hard? How do you keep grit out of it?

    That's a good point. Being a citizen of the PRC I can't carry a loaded weapon in my car. If I could it'd be in a cross draw holster on my left side. I'm right handed and I'd like to be able to draw and fire quickly at somebody who has approached my door with a weapon.

    Mine is very simple, on the console covered by a small towel. By the way I do like the large softdrink cup.

    I've been known to take my carry pistol out of the holster and place it within reaching distance, oftentimes under my strong side leg in the car. Otherwise, I'll carry the G19 as a vehicle weapon, and still depend on the one on my hip for a last ditch effort.

    I have a holster between my console and the front passenger seat. The pistol grip is next to my hand as it lays on the console. The gun is easy to cover with a hat or shirt if I'm in traffic where people can see in the vehicle (such as large trucks next to me). The gun is wedged in pretty tight, but I still need to strap the holster in so it doesn't go flying if I hit something.

    I like the Kingston holster, but I'm not sure how that would look with a rag over it if I need to step out of the car. It might be obvious that it is a gun.

    If I'm not in my own vehicle, I may use a shoulder holster.

    I figure there are just too many ways for a gun to become inaccessible while in a moving vehicle, so if I'm going to carry in the car, it should be secure. But I've tried the holster at various positions and none are viable: (I'm right-handed) 1-2 o'clock: jabs into my stomach while seated; 3-5 o'clock: can't sit back because the grip hits the back of the seat; SOB: self explanatory

    How do you manage to carry at 3 o'clock comfortably?
