    Carry for Driver.

    This has probably been discussed before and then buried somewhere in this forum, but I'm looking for some advice.
    I drive Limousines and wear a fitted suit daily. I am seated/driving for about 6-10 hours a shift. I do lots of airport drives and am often required to be inside the terminals to meet clients. I prefer not having to transfer from holster to glove box every time, but I don't want to deal with different interpretations of regulations regarding (Utah) airport security.
    With these facts in mind, I need advice on a safe, comfortable and inconspicuous rig.
    Thanks in advance.

    How about an IWB with a clip, so removing it is easy.

    Or an OWB with snaps.

    First consider no matter what, you don't want to get arrested and/or lose your carry rights, so I'd be sure to know the Laws on carry at the Airport, here in Atlanta, Court just ruled inside Airport a no no. But as for comfort and conceal while driving, I carry a Para Carry 9 in a Smartcarry holster, very comfortable, no print, easy access, Just my 2 cents

    Crap, I just realized I posted in the wrong forum.
    Could anyone be made aware and move it for me?

    If it were me, it would be a shoulder holster. Specifically, the Galco Miami Classic. Just my .02

    If you just need to have one handy, but out of sight, you might try attaching one to the bottom of the dash or in between the seats. I have seen an in-vehicle concealment holster that went between the seats, just can't remember where.

    Look at Mitch Rosen...they have a Counter Carjacking Rig. Looks ideal for the kind of thing your doing, or their Transverse.

    If you can afford it, have you considered having your suit altered to your firearm. Just a thought. That is when you find a holster that is comfortable.

    Whoops! Bersa Thunder 380, got it. Shoulder holster is my recommendation followed by ankle holster.

    As a truck driver I can tell you that while in the vehicle a ankle holster or cross draw holster are the most accessible.

    Look at Center Of Mass Central for a safe to put your gun while in the airport.

    I do not know the rules of the airport so I can't help you there sorry.

    Thanks all for your opinions! I'm currently using a barrel-down shoulder holster, left side. Gonna try this for another month and see how the comfort level is.
