    Gotcha... Mitch Rosen makes a holster called a "Counter Carjacking" holster that has a metal belt clip, easy on/off and proper angle for comfort while driving.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Wow - I just did a Google search on it and your thread on the holster from back in December came up as the first listing!

    Nice, but a bit too expensive for me right now. I'm ordering a Crossbreed QuickClip this week. One holster at a time.....

    Does your car have a center console? That's a legal car carry in Florida even without a CWP.

    I have a center console, but it's open. My passenger glove compartment does not have a lock. I guess I can keep it in there though while I'm driving and move it in the COM when I park.

    You could mount a cheap fobus paddle holster to the underside of the dash. You could do this for under $20.

    I sometimes keep a firearm in a holster wedged between the center console and the driver's seat...doesn't move and can be covered with an extra hat...still quick access.
    I also have a COM safe under the back seat...hard to find...used only for short stops...

    Try this for accessible car carry

    SSHMI Links

    Very flexible mounting option for holstered firearm in vehicle. Poor marketing (heck of a time finding via Google) but interesting....

    I have a cheap holster with a thumb break that hangs on the seatbelt of the middle seat. I ran a piece of string from the holster to the leg of the seat. It hangs off and is just as accessible as my gear shifter. It holds my P95 and I cover it with a rag.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I may try mounting a cheap holster somewhere under the dash.

    How about a cheap fanny pack for when you are driving. Not recommending it for edc but just when you are driving. The gun would be in your lap, easy to reach but still secure in case of a car accident. If you need to exit your car quickly, you can just unbuckle and go without worrying about having to retrieve your gun first.

    When you get to your destination, put your gun in your COM carsafe or your edc holster, unbuckle your fannypack and your ready to go.

    I use the center consol of my pickup truck. And in my wife’s car, she has storage space on the driver’s side door.

    I always keep my pistol there. More conferrable than warring in a car.

    BTW… The best way to keep your pistol from being stolen from your car is to make sure no one knows you keep one in your car. If you car is one in a hundred, the odds on a BG picking your car to break into is slim.

    But let a B&G see you get out of the car and lock it in your trunk safe. Bal-a-bing you car is broken into, and no lock is 100% safe.

    Just in case you’re wondering is very common for B&G to stake out a parking lot they are going to hit.

    Makes sense. I plan to put the COM safe under my drivers seat so when I need to store the gun, just pull the COM up from under the seat, lock the gun away, then back under the seat. Should be a quick procedure.

    You can be very creative in how you car carry however its important that you follow Florida Law when coming up with a solution. If you use a holster mounted inside the car make sure it has a thumb break. Good luck.
