    Those who carry in condition 1 or 0: When you leave the gun in the car, do you...

    This is primarily for semiauto users.

    If you carry in condition 1 or 0, and have times where you have to leave your firearm in your car (for work, at school, etc.), how do you secure it?

    Do you clear the chambered round? Or leave it ready to go but in a secure lockbox? Do you leave the round chambered but take the magazine with you?

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    If I leave it in the car, its in a lock box. It goes in the box the way its carried. The less you mess, the less likely you are to have a mis-hap...

    That's my thinking. I was over on another forum and people who carry condition 1/0 mentioned clearing the chamber every time they locked their gun in the car. My first thought was: Man, more chance for a mistake. Second thought was: Chambering and clearing the same rounds over and over could damage the round and potentially cause injury, at the least a misfire. Doing that about 30 times a month wouldn't be good for the ammo.

    I take the mag with me and lock my gun to the seat rail. I have only locked my gun down 5 times in the last year. I can carry at work. The other day the boss asked me if I had my gun. I said " Well, of course."

    That must be nice.

    Chambered and ready to go. Locked with only my access. No one else has the key.

    Same way it's on my belt: Ready to go.
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Always ready for action regardless of where it is carried or stored.

    Yep, that's what I do, with the spare mags in same lockbox. The box is rather well concealed, too.

    I carry one round in the chamber all day. I have a GunVault 200 under my car seat to stow it during gun-free-zone excursions. It sits fully chambered in a rigged up in-car holster during drives.

    I only purge the round from the chamber for end if day storage. I have a child and even locked up on a safe I want to be doubly careful.

    I remove my holster with gun still in it (same way I put it on), place in glove box, lock glove box and car, and I'm on my way. This is a very rare occurrence, and if I'm in a somewhat busy area it can be done while seated in car fairly quick and safe. I don't like the idea of unholstering, digging around under seat, getting out a box others might see, etc. But that's just me!
