    I just avoid leaving guns in the car. I carry mine and let it sleep indoors on my night stand when I'm not carrying it.

    ^This. The only time I leave my firearm in my car is when going into the post office.

    No will not go off but, I Don't know about pistol ammo but rifle ammo will shoot high when hot or "cooked"

    I would feel much safer with a revolver in the hot car vs a FiveSeveN (Poly frame with rifle type cartridge). I would not think it would get that hot if you keep it out of the sunlight.

    I hope you park on the street or some other parking lot when at the post office.

    It gets hotter in the Middle East than most of the areas around here. And we kept our ammo over there in metal crates and ammo cans, and I never saw a round cook off.

    Yup. On the street. The PO here doesn't really have much of a parking lot, and it's at the back of the building besides. So parking on the street is more convenient, aside from being necessary.

    You'd be a little pile of dehydrated goo on the pavement before the ambient temperature in the car got hot enough to cook off a round from a stored weapon.

    Been there done that! I guess I like learning the hard way, never again

    I have a carbine in my car quite often in South Texas heat. Think of all the LEO's with firearms in their trunks. Also, I've left a handgun in the glove compartment for days before with no issues.
    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

    You cannot have a firearm in your car in the post office parking lot?? Do you have a link for this?

    Oddly enough, I've never actually read the wording of the law, but it's always been my policy that I'm not gonna even touch federal property while carrying. I don't need the hassle, and even if the parking lot is technically ok, I still don't want to be the guy who runs into the LEO that doesn't know the law at all.
