    Likewise form Washington, and at 4 o'clock just works for me while driving

    Yep!

    Hands goes down front seat belt and right hand disengages the belt. Left hand clears the belt as the right hand goes to the pistol which should have no cover garment concealing it in the car, draws, rounds the top of the stiring wheel and gun is brought up on to target. This has got to be practiced alot.

    Back up guns are great to have stashed but a big lesson learned from the '86 Miami shootout is not to off body carry a primary in a car.

    Primary IWB on strong side. Secondary goes from pocket to in between the seats. Starting doing this after seeing the police chase someone down the sidewalk right past my car wile I was in traffic.

    That's actually a larger mag, for a GLOCK 17. That's why it sticks out.

    The way these are mounted are illegal in Florida. It would have to have to be completey concealled with a velcro opening at the very least. I keep mine in the console on longer rides but otherwise IWB 4:00 in my Explorer. In my car the seats wrap around so tight that I have to put it into the console but would like to mount it like you have here with a velcro flap. Does anybody make such a thing?

    Normally during the week my M38 is in a Smartcarry. I know this isnt the fastest access but considering my threat level its sufficient. I drive a Jeep which adds to vulnerability but. I live in a small town getting trapped in traffic is slim to none. I always leave getaway room in front of me in case I need to move in a hurry. I commute from house to work from work to home. I have two redlights and two stop signs on my commute. I figure a 2000 lbs weapon and will use it first to get away. Other times I have the family I apply the same mindset of an escape route. I have the benefit in the wifes truck of auto locking doors. Also if the family is with me I will have my Glock 26 at 3:30 IWB. It rides in a triangle actually between the seatbelt, body and seat and is easily accesable. If I leave the vehicle it simply goes with me. I guess my short answer is its in the same spot it always is.

    Usually, in whatever holster I'm wearing, right (strong) side carry.

    However--if I am going to be spending a lot of time in the car--an extended drive, for some reason--I'll switch to a shoulder holster. A lot more comfortable, I've found.

    If I'm alone in the car I just set it on the passenger seat... But if someone is occupying the passenger seat then I keep it inbetween my driver seat and the center console

    Not being critical, but please rethink this.

    Your gun could get knocked off the seat at the moment that you might need it.

    Taken straight from the infamous '86 Miami Shootout wiki:
    The initial collision that forced the suspects off the road caused some unforeseen problems for the agents, as the FBI vehicles sustained damage from the heavier, older car driven by Matix.[7] Just prior to ramming the Monte Carlo, Manauzzi had pulled out his service revolver and placed it on the seat in anticipation of a shootout,[7] but the force of the collision flung open his door and sent his weapon flying. Hanlon also lost his .357 Magnum service revolver during the initial collision, though he was still able to fight with his Smith & Wesson Model 36 backup gun.

    Now I understand that civilians are not going to be rapidly approaching two heavily armed felons trying to ram them with a vehicle but there is a lesson to be learned from these mistakes. I am a big proponent of on person carry.

    Great Point one reason I have it mounted. I carry on person but one the very few occasions I do not I am content in knowing that my back up Glock 26 is exactly where I left it; Even if I were to be flipped upside down the retention is more than enough to keep that Baby Glock in there.
