    What's your carry system when in your car?

    Mainly if you are going to carry IWB and you get in your car, do you just wear it normally and if you have to draw you deal with reaching back and getting it or do have any special thing you do?

    In the winter months I carry in a shoulder rig. In the summer in a belly band. The summer carry can get tough, but a holster in between the seat and console works great.

    In the car I rely on pepper spray and the gas pedal... if I'm forced to I can pop the seatbelt and pull my revolver.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Just as normal. I don't want to have to mess with holstering/unholstering or anything else. As mentioned above, SD option #1 when driving is the gas pedal. If that can't be used, I can still draw even from behind the clipped seatbelt.

    For long drives (multiple hours) sometimes I unclip the holster from my belt and set it on the passenger seat, or in the center console (for comfort). I always put it back on before getting out at a rest stop or to get gas, etc.

    Of course, half the time on long drives I instead have to unload it and lock it up in the back

    I carry in the appendix position. It allows easier access to the weapon while buckled up.

    yeah normally thats what I do...I may make sure that that side is "untucked" so I can get a better grip and quicker than fumbling through a sweatshirt and jacket but yeah normally...now I carry at about 3 when im driving so im not sitting on it...so its not totally blocked either.

    it depends on where i'm going or who i'm with. normally however if i'm already CC when i get in the truck i stay CC. I figure if need be a V-8 moving 6500 pounds of American steel will beat a few .357 mag rounds any day. If i'm going to work or if my back is bothering me that day then the gun goes in the center consol

    Depends on where I'm traveling and how far. Mostly normal edc. In some areas I will move the gun to a Galco deep concealment and slide it under my leg. My leg conceals it and the holster protects the trigger. It's mighty comforting in that position, I don't have to move to lay my hand on the grip, and its still concealed.
    I reject your reality, and insert my own.

    If it comes to it, I have my gun in an OWB Crossdraw holster. It's hard to beat while driving if you ask me. Sometimes I have a holstered handgun jammed between the seat and the shifter console. Like others have said, I'll try to drive away if possible.

    I leave my CC where it is (I can reach it while in the driver's seat), if necessary I'll go to the spare in the console.

    I learned about this the hard way. I did this for a while, then had to make a defensive driving maneuver one time, and had the gun fly across the seat and get lodged down between the seat and passenger's door.

    Even for long drives, I now usually carry at 3:00 as normal. If I decide to have it off-body for a long drive, it goes in my Maxpedition Jumbo Versipack in the ccw compartment, and secured tightly to the back of the passenger seat.

    Now, if ihave to make a maneuver, it's still where I need it.

    If I'm going to be in the car for an extended period, I wear my shoulder holster for fall and winter time. In the spring/summer it would be IWB Crossbreed or my SERPA CQC set up for cross draw paddle configuration.

    Always at 3:00. Sometimes, depending on situation I will carry a BUG crossdraw in a $44 Bianchi 100 Proffessional clip on IWB.
