    Vehicle Carry

    How do you carry in your vehicle?

    Its kind of difficult to get your weapon out when you're sitting in a car, so do you move it off of your body to a place inside the car when you're driving?

    How can you protect yourself if your weapon is in your vehicle?

    I thought this would go without saying...

    Assuming you're in the vehicle too.

    I guess the point I'm trying to get to is seeing if people take their guns out of the holster and put it in a place in their vehicle for easier access when they are driving...Its a pain to draw your weapon from concealment if you're sitting on it.

    When you're in your vehicle, it can be a much better weapon or means of escape then your gun....but something could happen when you're stuck in an freeway parking lot bumper to bumper...

    I have something mounted under my dash out of sight. Under the seat is too impractical and the glove box just doesn't work. I can't put my pistol between seats cause I have a bench seat (its a truck)

    CCW is IWB, .357 rev for anti-material/ anti-vehicle use in a holster mounted between the seats and a shotgun behind the seat all three.

    Sometime IWB, sometimes OWB...sometimes between seat and center console--it depends on where I'm going and what I'm doing.

    Driving to/from work--IWB or OWB

    Stopping at a drive through--between seat and console before getting on the road, driving home after work (I work on Fed property, but park on a public street)

    No different than anywhere else. IWB .Unless it is a long trip, then I may switch to a shoulder rig, but not usually.

    It'd be a problem if I was right-handed. I'm not. It isn't.

    I didn't vote because the obvious choice wasn't there. I carry however I am carrying when I get in the vehicle. Sometimes OWB Sometimes IWB , Smartcarry, shoulder, pocket. I don't ever put the gun in the car where it is not on my person.

    No option for me, I pocket carry... doesn't matter if I'm in the car or not.
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    even on my long 9 hr trips, which i do way too often, mine is in my IWB.
    its in someone else's car that doesnt know i am carrying, and since that is my only holster really its my only option. but i have NO problem sitting still crammed in the back of a tiny car with 2 large smelly CS majors (ok well maybe i have a problem with that part) for 9 hrs with my gun. it honestly doesnt get uncomfy at all.

    Primary seating in a car is ankle but also keep my IWB carry also. I have a gun safe mounted in the trunk to deposit my ankle carry when not needed.

    IWB, since I refuse to move the gun from one place to another as I get in/out. If I'm somewhere questionable or my spidey sense tingles, I do the ghetto-tuck and tuck my garmets back and/or behind the leather.
