    Answer is simple. Keep it in a fanny pack that sits in your lap (strapped around your waist, of course) while driving. Tuck it in your glove box (locked?) or in your center console when you are not in the car.

    Thanks for the input and good ideas.

    All finished, met all my criteria, and works like a champ. I used a leather backed Kydex (King Tuk style) holster, cut the leather to fit, and mounted it under the dash way back out of sight. It is out of sight, out of my way, and easy to access.

    Mounted holster to underside of dash on driver's side:

    View from kneeling next to open driver's door(you can barely see the pistol under the dash):

    I gotta say, I'm impressed. Great work.

    I've thought of doing this. Nice execution, however, my needs would be to have it set up so that it could be used for various guns, not just one make/model. If for just one gun like an XD or Glock, that looks great.

    VERY nice job.

    And the high-quality craftsmanship matches the car, too.

    [Mine would be done with duct tape... though it would match my car, come to think of it].

    You must be left handed?

    nope. I'm a righty. There simply was no place to put the holster within easy reach of my right hand. It does require me to switch the pistol from left to right but since I shoot IDPA and practice weak hand shooting (including swapping hands on the fly) it's very natural for me. I'm sure any other right handed shooters could practice a few draws and find it easy.

    I'm not a fan of leaving a firearm in an unattended vehicle, even if hidden. If I have to leave the firearm, it goes in the GunVault bolted beneath the rear seat.

    That said, I am left handed & when driving the seat belt causes drawing issues while belted up. so rather than let the firearm bounce around lose, I use the Serpa holsters & mounts. The good thing is, you can rotate the holster on the mount to get in just the right position. Then, when you get to destination, you can unhook the holster & just leave the ring mount on the dash & put the empty holster in the console. Plus with the Serpas you can swap holsters depending on which firearm you're carrying. In the pictures below, one is for 1911s & the other for Glocks.

    Here is one in my Ford Raptor & one in Jeep Wrangler.

    I understand your concern but leaving a gun in your bolted down gunvault is still leaving a firearm in an unattended vehicle. We each have to evaluate the risks we're willing to take (hopefully within the law) and how best to satisfy our needs while exercising our 2nd amendment rights. I do like the swappable (is that a word?) mounting bracket you have used. Nicely done.

    The most practical way to keep and secure a handgun that also doesn't attract undue attention is my "Hidden Agenda" Plannerbook holster from Galco. It also fits both of my handguns as well as keep it locked up (zipper lock mechanism). If I decide to reholster, I can get to my trunk, unlock the zipper, walk back inside my car with the planner, and take the gun out while inside my car. You can't beat that kind of security as well as discretion in one package.

    I'll give you partial credit but have to give the nod to MsHB as well for taking it one step further and closer to my final design. You are both winners! Let me know when you are in Portland and I'll buy you a beer from one of our many microbreweries.
