    How do I CCW in my car? Any sort of "mountable holster" for the dash or something?

    how do you guys carry when you're in your Subaru's?

    I carry my Sig 229 DAK in a CompTac CTAC IWB holster which I absolutely love, but for long car rides it's the most uncomfortable thing on earth not to mention the fact that when I have my seatbelt on I cannot access it very well at all, so I believe that carrying on my person while in the car is neither a good idea for comfort or the possibly where I may need my weapon quickly.

    So how else can I carry while in the car? I drive a Subaru Impreza WRX STI so it's not exactly your typical truck where you can just put one of those SmartSafes under the seat, definitely a no-go in a small car like my STI.

    Is there any sort of extremely secure holster that I can mount underneath the dashboard or somewhere under the steering column or something to that effect? I do not want a safe for the car, but some sort of mountable holster that is extremely secure.

    I found a system sold by DeSantis called the Kingston Car Seat Holster which looks like EXACTLY what i'm looking for, but it attaches directly to the seat and i'm not sure if it will work on the STI's seats or not. Here is a link to it... http://www.desantisholster.com/n92.html



    Besides the DeSantis Kingston Car Seat Holster, does anyone have any other ideas or suggestions?

    Thanks!

    You could try an option that a friend of mine has considered. Just get a cheapish kydex holster and mount it under the dash with screws. Of course you may not want to start drilling holes in your car. But it can be done.

    Andrews Leather makes a "Carjacker Crossdraw" model that you can attach to either belt or seatbelt. Got one and love it.

    I don't know about you, but from one performance driver to another, I would NOT want to be drillin holes or do anything perminant to that car (as far as guns go).

    If you must, I would consider using double-sided tape or something like that to hold the holster. Consider mounting it back where your dash ends on the underside. Someplace extremely unnoticable.... if you can use that seat-mounted one, I would go with that.

    Yes, and we all give him hell for it when we talk to him.

    I use Mark Garrity's C&D Crossdraw holster and love it. It easily attaches to my belt at 11 and thus avoids the seatbelt.

    Here is mine.

    Fobus sells a universal home/auto mount for $39.99, you would also need a Roto Holster from Fobus. The holster cost is $29.99. I have not used this system but I have seen it in the Cabelas Shooting catalog.

    Thanks. It's refreshing to actually get real answers, and not "Why do you need a gun? Are you some sort of nut?" .

    I use an Ace Car Holster from http://www.smartcarry.com/products.htm

    It is a velco on the outside holster, velcro closer on the top you can pull the gun through and a velcro pad (glue is 3M) you can stick anywhere. I mount mine by the gear shift in easy reach/no bending over to get it. I have bought multiple pads to place in each car, bed frame and anywhere else you want. The holster also comes with a basic metal clip to make it an IWB in a pinch.

    Works for me very well and holds great. Give them a look.

    I just used industrial velcro setup to mount an old holster in the console of my suv. It works great for my G23.
