    Best In-car carry option

    Howdy Fellow CCW folks,
    I am wondering what others do to keep their weapon handy in the car. I have seen that seat-attached holster and am interested in doing that with my SR9. Perhaps that's overkill (no pun intended). How do you carry in the car to keep your weapon handy and accessible?

    I don't put anything on my truck specifically for a gun. I either bring a second gun for really long trips or (very rarely) place my gun under my left leg (right handed). I'm more concerned with people who might be at the places where I get out of the truck than when I am in it.

    I have a console shelf under my steering wheel, 2 extra mags and a tazer I can grab with either hand. Next to my parking brake there is a perfect spot about the size of a thick paperback, 1911 fits perfectly. When I get in I slide my Colt(Salmah :)) out of my pocket carry and into the cubby, unless you are in my passenger seat you will not see it. As I get out my hand slides into my pocket and the 1911 magically disappears.

    The tazer is meant to stall until I can draw my weapon, right hand busy etc.. I do like spray better, but spray in the car is a bad move since it will blind me as well as the carjacker.

    I keep a S&W 44 mag revolver tucked under my seat, when concerning cars and shootouts the 44 mag will punch through cover and concealment

    Your car is the best weapon, all else is secondary.

    I simply keep mine in the holster, just the same as if I'm out of the car. My car is the weapon of choice when I'm driving. If for some reason I need to ditch the car I probably need to do it quickly. There may not be time to grab my gun from the center console (or find it if it isn't secure after a crash/hit). Besides, with practice you can get the gun from your holster just as fast as pulling it from a console. Modify the holster position if necessary.

    Since I CCW in a fanny-pak, I wear it all the time, in and out of the car. It's always within reach.

    I wear an Ankle Holster for in the car carry.

    My "Primary" is behind my hip. I've also usually got another one in my pocket. When I'm wearing shorts, off duty, I may just carry two guns and move the pocket gun to the ankle while driving, and then reverse the procedure and take the ankle holster off before getting out of the vehicle.

    I would think the sugar in regular Coke might gum up the works and keep your weapon from firing.

    I guess it would if you put it in a full cup.

    I'm thinking that the gun oil might make your drink taste funny too...
