    Don't drive cars, that's what I do!!!

    Last year when I had I car I kept beat up old G19 in the center console. Sold the car, and the gun to pay for school. Now I just have my P229 for EDC.

    There are several options...
    Practice, with two hands, the removal of the seatbelt while clearing the weapon and avoiding the steering wheel.
    Prepare ahead of time to uncover the garment over the weapon and placement of the seatbelt around the weapon to ensure an easier draw.
    Or, as I usually do, when traveling to really questionable places, either take an extra gun (Ruger .357) and place it between the seat and console, or remove the EDC (Glock-36) and place IT between the seat and console.
    The most important factor is SA...it's difficult to defend something you don't see coming.OMOYMV

    If you do a lot of driving, one other option that is really not as crazy as it sounds, is to just wear two holsters. I have a small cross draw holster that has a reverse cant. Without a gun, it rides almost flat against my belt. It's a simple matter to get in the car, remove the gun from the holster at the 4 o'clock position and slip it into the cross draw.

    The holster looks like this

    Thank you Mike and Concealed. Most acceptable and primary answers to this thread. IMO, when you are in your car that can move away, it is a long way from such a simple act to sitting in your car and trying to present a firearm with intent

This leaves enough room for you to get around that car if the need should arise and you won't be boxed in, such as if someone is walking toward your car with a weapon. Don't expect your fellow driver to be able to or even want to get out of your way if you are in danger and they don't appear to be.
    i also avoid the middle lane when stopped, I prefer an outside lane where I have an escape route if needed...

    Somewhere around a year or two ago, we had a member of the forum who had a guy approach his car and IIRC grabbed him thru the window and started to assult or choke him. This happened on a very rural, isolated gravel road in Utah. He struggled to get to his EDC, which was behind his seatbealt. Since that incident, I have installed this in my truck. Made by Crossbreed and the holster is backed by velcro, and they supple a huge sheet of sticky velcro to put on the car or where-ever you want to put it.

    Thanks for all the ideas guys...I wear IWB so to clear my clothes, seatbelt, etc seems like it'd be tough but I'll just have to practice...Ideally I'll just use my 5.8 liters to get outta there

    In my SUV, I have a 9 in the safe in the center console. When on the road, i take it out and place it on top of the safe, but with the console lid resting on top of it. I can get it out fast. My EDC carry is at 3;30, but it clears the belt and I can get at that one also.
    That said: If I am just "going to the store" relitively close by,( like 5-10 min away), I will not bother with the 9, it stays locked up. If on a longer trip with few stops, I can put the 9 (or the 642) inbetween the seat and the console in a old cut up gun rug, and it does not show from outside, even after exiting the car.
    I do go on a long trip with by buddy to NC and Va twice a year in his car. He is OK with guns but doesn't carry. I have the 642 either in pocket carry or IWB, and the 9 in the glove box. When on his property in NC, open carry, because the main problems are bears and other preditory animals. His property is 40 acres in really rural country.

    If your state does not require that a CCW holder have the weapon on his person while driving, or locked up, try my method.

    Get one of those cheap IWB holsters that looks like velvet or sued. They are cloth.

    Cut the threads that hold the belt clip so that you can remove it.

    Get some really heavy duty wide velcro.

    Attach velcro to the holster and the mating half to the cloth upholtery between the drivers and the center seat.

    Mine is mounted just in front of the seat belt buckle.

    This gives you the set-up for a very very fast draw in an emergency.

    I remove my weapon from my belt and place it between the seats as I enter and retrieve it just before I open the door at the destination.

    Also in this location, it is secure in the event of anything other than a major crash.

    The K.L. Null Nullvam Crossdraw "Driving" Holster solves the problem.

    I would hate to be the person wearing that when I get into an accident. Seat belts are designed to distribute the blow across your hips, and that looks like it's in exactly the wrong spot.
