    What is the make and year of your car? That would help people better understand the specifications of what you are asking for.

    You specified "on the console" = what console in what vehicle?

    Regardless, sounds like any solution to this would be 'way' too obvious to LEO and Thieves = easily seen.

    Heck, I have a holster that clips on my closed ash tray. Anyone can see it and that doesn't bother me a bit. I am not going to leave it in the car so I am not worried about thief's and in Ohio I can carry in my car anyway I like so I am not worried about the police. There really is no other place I can get to the gun easily if I need it. If I can't get to it easily there is no point to have it is there.

    I have one of these:

    Gum Creek - Vehicle Holster Mount, Steering Wheel Handgun Mount, Anti-CarJacking, Anti Car Jacking

    Works great, fits both of my handguns and is not easily seen.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    I just tuck my IWB holster in between the console and seat...fits snugly.
    In FL, the gun cannot be seen from outside the vehicle, so I just set my hat over it. One must have a permit to do this, otherwise it must be in the glovebox.

    Tuck my LC9 between the seat and console in my superfly. I then put whole rig in my pocket when I get out.

    Same. Never had a problem with the gun moving at all, either. And it's easily accessible at a moment's notice.

    My car gun is a SW99 and I just clip my Kydex tactical holster to the pocket on the back of the passenger side seat. It is within easy reach and
    secure in the event of violent braking or other unexpected manuevers.

    Can't be easily seen from outside the car since the gun and holster are black and the seats are black leather. If I want to wear the holster I just disengage it from the seat pocket and put it on my belt.

    Being a "leftie" (not politically, of course), the seatbelt doesn't interfere with access from my strong side OWB holster.
    It is easier in the truck than in the car, but is doable in both.

    Thumbs up on the Desantis Kingston holser. I have one in each of my cars. I just move the car gun into which car I'm driving at time. I'm a lefty too but I don't like to have to re tuck every time I have to leave the car, so I carry a car gun and a CCW when driving.

    Thanks. That Kingston is my favorite, truth be told. I've seen Police use a similar method of carry, and while sitting at a traffic light, they'll just sit with one hand resting on the grip of the gun between their legs, in case someone takes a shot at them while stopped at the light. It's pretty much the quickest draw method I've seen for a vehicle. It's also easy to transition to your carry holster before leaving the vehicle.

    Same here. Bought a cheapo canvas IWB from Gander Mnt that stays in my car. It fits my XDm's and Glocks almost perfectly and when I'm driving, I have it snugged in between my seat and the center console. I drape my jacket or a hat over it for obvious reasons.
    I so want a Gum Creek, but my car's steering wheel doesn't have those gaps necessary to attach the holster, so I'll continue with what I have. Plus, since it fits almost all of my pistols except the full size 1911, it's slam dunk practical.
