    In the summer IWB or OWB it doesn't matter, my cant while standing is forward, and when I am in the car seat it works out to be straight up. If you notice the seatbelt buckle usually is about 40 degrees forward.

    When I enter the vehicle I 99% of the time lift my shirt and/or jacket/coat up and tuck behind my pistol. I can always get my pistol out while wearing a seatbelt (buckle up).

    In Minnesota once in awhile I have to wear my parka, and I unzip from the bottom of my coat so I can aways have access to my pistol.

    My gloves in the winter are thin but warm fleece.

    I found away to position my pistol perfectly in my cup holder near the arm rest. The grip of the gun sticks up, that way I can grab it quick and easy.

    On my hip in a holster, just like when I'm out of my vehicle. In other words no change to carry position.

    I don't change my carry method in my vehicle; I use IWB and SmartCarry. For IWB I always check after getting in the car and put on my seat belt if I can get to my firearm and draw it safely and adjust accordingly. In my SmartCarry I've learned that if I were to need to get my firearm out quickly I will need to release the seat-back down with my left hand while drawing (and this is feasible with the seat back dropping or down) with my right hand. I figured situations where you would need quick access would more than likely occur while you were stopped so dropping the seat back would not make a driving hazard. I practice this from time to time to make sure I am able to do this quickly.

    Most of my driving is commuting to work. I usually cc in a Smartcarry with BUG in an ankle holster, but the ankle gun becomes my primary while driving.

    I would imagine adjusting your Smart Carry while in your car may get some strange looks..
