    On the body vehicle carry

    I'm sure there are a thousand of these threads, but oh well let's make another.

    I drive a lot for work, a thousands of miles month.

    I usually carry a Glock in a Crossbreed Supertuck which is great.

    However inside my car it's very slow to draw from.

    In Montana and Wyo I'll just slip a Glock in a pocket holster and put it between the seats.

    However I'm Washington bound next month and I do believe (I could be wrong) that you have to keep the weapon concealed and on your person. I think NoDak is the same way.

    I'll be driving through and working in the Seattle area. I was there last summer and was able to recieve my Utah permit luckily for the last half of my time there. Place worries me.

    I like OWB but I can't seem to hide my 23C in my Galco Fletch under anything but a hoodie. How are the Crossbreed snap sides? Are they a little slimmer and keep the gun tighter to your body?

    I was thinking appendix carry but I'm lacking in the flat abs department. However I'm curious of the Crossbreed Appendix off to my 2 O'clock would work with either my 27 or 23C.

    Also thinking about going to a shoulder rig under a snap shirt.

    I had a Blackhawk shoulder rig but it was impossible to hide.

    How are the Galco Jackass's? Is there any nice leather rigs that carry vertical inside of horizontal so the muzzle points downward?

    Another thing about going to a shoulder I'd probably have to option to carry my 27 like I normally do as a backup gun.

    Thanks guys!

    When driving I carry in a shoulder rig with a snap shirt (Cabelas, top 4 "buttons" are snaps). Sometimes if I want to be extra stealthy I use a Kangaroo Carry (also a shoulder rig but very stealthy). I want access to my weapon with my right hand when behind the wheel. If you run through the logistics you will understand why. Space is your friend. A car mounted holster between the driver and passenger seat gives you the same advantage.

    Take some extra time to research the laws in those different states, sounds like you have already begun to do so. Good luck.

    Most any holster either IWB or OWB is going to be difficult to get to while buckled in. This is one of the few areas where a good shoulder holster can actually work very well. We used to train on drawing from a level 3 duty holster inside a crowded patrol vehicle. It aint easy but can be done w/ practice! Good luck!

    I get along very well with an ankle holster for long trips in the car. Might give it a try!!!!!!!!!!

    I could also look at using my 5.11 holster shirt, but I'd prefer a good holster.

    Maybe with the vehicle my garage I'll train on drawing from my Crossbreed.

    How's the Crossbreed appendix?

    What's better to hide horizontal or vertical?

    How not to love a Galco Shoulder Rig Lite (all suede) for driving. I used to do that in Detroit with a .45 under a sweatshirt, too easy.
    I liked vertical with bbl pointed up for a natural draw.

    I dont seem to have that problem when driving and I carry a right now a SR9. But ive seen folks go shoulder holster which I have done in the past, or use a Remora or Sticky holster and just move it to the left side for cross draw which is fast also. Ive never actually had one of the Remoras or stickys but a lot seem to like them for that

    I use the Fist Inc. #42 Driving Holster quite a bit. I am 6'0" ~200lbs and sport a smallish spare tire around my middle. The holster in one position sits canted very nicely for the draw while seated. When I want to get out of the vehicle, it can either remain canted down to be covered by my garment and belly contour, or it can be rotated up into a more vertical crossdraw orientation by pushing a plastic tab.

    Sitting for long periods of time? Ankle carry. Easy to access while sitting down.
