these work great though I've never tried to put my gun on it. Don't forget it when you leave the car!

I hear many people, when they talk about OCing in a car, mention keeping their pistol on the dashboard of their car. How on earth do you guys do this without the pistol falling off? I drive a Honda Civic and it seems like there's no way I can keep anything on the dashboard.
Not a very good choice for many reasons, mostly safety. However it's a great way to say hello look at me I'm carrying.

Sounds like a great way to meet members of the law enforcement community, at gunpoint.
CCW permit holder for Idaho, Utah, Pennsylvania, Maine and New Hampshire. I can carry in your country but not my own.
That just sounds like such a terrible idea, for so many reasons.
I agree that it would not be a method I would voluntarily choose, but there could be circumstances where that's the only legal way to be armed.
For example, Nebraska is fairly new to "shall-issue" CC and has no statute allowing CC reciprocity. So if one from another state traverses Nebraska, the only option is open carry, which in a vehicle in Nebraska "must be clearly visible".
(If I am wrong about any Nebraska details, please correct me.)
On the dashboard?
Ouch, it may make a heck of a projectile in the event of a crash.

If you do not have a CC permit in NC, law states it must be in a visible location, seat or dash.
I would not want to carry in dash, but velcro a cheap holster to the dash should hold her in place while driving.

Illegal in Washington gun must be out of plain view. No loaded pistols without a permit. Even if it was legal seems like an impractical place for carry for all the reasons listed
Abort the Obamanation not the Constitution
Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
id advise not to carry on the dash, someone can call and describe your gun and make a brandishing claim, although that works for open carry too but i carry a digital voice recorder when i do so.

a digital voice recorder for when you OC? why?
Protection is a responsibility not just a right.
Also, call me paranoid, but it also sounds like a good way for a parking lot creep to case you. Let's say that if you don't take it with you (for whatever reason), and decide to put it away... the perp now knows for sure what he's going to be looking for when he smashes your window, and you've just armed a criminal.
You're in Springfield MO? I thought if you were 21, you could conceal a handgun in your car in MO.
