    I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
    And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
    As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
    God Bless

    I'm not sure if its been mentioned in the previous 5 pages, but (at least in Florida) a weapon needs to be in a clickable compartment like a glove box or center console. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but having a gun just hidden is illegal. Even with a CCW, it has to be concealed on your person or in a clickable compartment.

    clickable? that's a new one... Wouldn't that be pretty low on practicality? Not a lot of difference between "clickable" and "under some papers".

    Oh wait... government.

    Good point and thanks for the input. In Oregon we are allowed to carry concealed with a permit and allowed to keep a hidden loaded weapon in your unattended locked vehicle. When it comes to guns I follow the rules. I made several inquiries to the proper authorities to be sure my idea was legal. I don't know about other states so I'll have to find out prior to visiting.

    There's a few people on this forum that know Florida law inside and out. I'm sure they will chime in tomorrow and clarify the "Clickable". The way I understand it (my CCW is from Florida), the glove box is OK. "Under some papers" is illegal even with a CCW. I haven't researched other states and I carry my weapon concealed on my person in Texas.

    GunSling-R Vehicle Holster Mount

    If you don't want it locked and you have room under the seat this could work for you. Won't help with a break in though since it will be easy to find and grab.

    Trunk Mounted Handgun Safe

    I like the idea of a more solid safe mounted in the trunk for a normal size gun when you have such a limited space in the cabin. In addition, I always carry a .380 in my pocket. While I don't have quite the same confidence in this very small gun, at least it is always with me. It's not the round that concerns me, it's harder to shoot such a small gun accurately and hit the target. If I have the need to use a gun while seated in my vehicle, I think my P3AT will stop the threat at a point blank range.

    Like you, still looking for the perfect solution in limited space and something this is a good compromise.

    In short terms, what FL law says is anyone who an legally possess a fiream can conceal a loaded handgun in a private conveyance (any privately owned vehicle--yours or otherwise, meaning not a cab or some other "public" transportation) as long as it's "securely encased" and not visible. One must have a CC permit to conceal on or about the body.

    FS 790.001 defines securely encased: (17) “Securely encased” means in a glove compartment, whether or not locked; snapped in a holster; in a gun case, whether or not locked; in a zippered gun case; or in a closed box or container which requires a lid or cover to be opened for access.

    The statute states nothing about being latched or "clickable." By FL statute, you can have a handgun under the seat as long as it's in a zippered case or even a "snapped' holster. The intent is that something has to be opened to access the gun. This is one of the many legalities of handgun carry that I've found many LEOs are not aware of, insisting a gun under the seat without a permit is illegal. I had to print out the statute to convince one LEO that he was wrong.

    Sorry, but that's all I can add. I drive a smart, so no "trunk anything" for me....

    OK, I came to this after five pages of posts.

    My suggestions :

    Get a Mc Donalds bag, insert gun. insert smelly burger and fries wrappers over the gun, making sure to get some mustard, onions and a bunch of pickles on and in the bag so it's so stinky nobody will spend much time looking in it or taking it (except maybe to a trash can which is the weak link).

    Or, remove the air bag from the steering wheel, insert gun, maybe with some velcro attachment so it doesn't rattle. Quick secure blaster storage, and you can re-install the air bag when it's time to turn in your lease. (air bags are for wusses anyways, right ?)

    Or, build up a small cover from fiberglass under the carpet either on the side of the console, on the floor near the console of just in front of the seat. In most cars there is a support beam molded into the floor at the front of the seat where wiring is routed through, this makes a good spot for a molded pocket under the carpet that is still easy to access while seated.

    Or, buy an SUV or pickup truck with a large enough console to hold a real safe in it.

    Or, what I did in two of my cars, but it doesn't meet your stringent guide lines.

    The Gunsling-R looks like a good product. Unfortunately I'm space limited under the seat with all the electronic seat adjustment gizmos. This would be a great option for someone wanting to bring a pistol in their car, stow it for easy access, and then if they want - take it with them when they leave the car. This would work especially well if the seats are countoured like mine and there isn't really much room between my 3:30-4:00 carry position and the seat's side bolster. Kinda fits like a glove.

    I tried the McDonalds bag approach but once when I had to draw my pistol I got pickle juice in my eye and ended up getting shot (kidding).

    I like the under carpet idea. A friend who modifys cars to race told me about that so we measured and only a micro SA would fit as there is too thin a layer of foam in the floor pan.

    I think you'll like the idea I came up with. Photos to follow by Monday. Thanks for the ideas.
