Easy car concealed carry method
Interesting .... Don't know if I would try it

Looks darned inconvenient to me. You have to flip off the (optional use) hat, draw with your thumb until there is enough grip exposed to grasp it, and then readjust your grip to fire. A lot of people wouldn't have the hand strength to do that. I'll stick with my crossdraw holster for car carry. It gives the added advantage of being attached to me, not my car. No matter what happens, the gun stays with me.

I've had issues myself when thinking about this.

For now I've started keeping my CCW at 4:00 and my Glock 19 in a position similar to his, only more concealed, I'd like to mount a kydex holster somewhere but it would be in full view because of the layout of my car.

Concealed is concealed.

Having the grip exposed is not concealed. I'm am no lawyer, but I could see problems with that in Florida.

Something to think about when trying to come up with a car carry solution. When a car is involved in a collision, the only thing that stops or changes direction on initial impact is the car. Everything else in that vehicle will attempt to continue in the original direction at the original speed. Now picture some road rage yahoo pulling in front of you and jumping on his brakes to stop you, or even worse, running you off the road to hit a stationary object.

If you're buckled up we know where you will probably end up, but where will your firearm land? In the Miami FBI shootout two of the agents lost their primary weapons in the initial collision. They had removed them from the holster in anticipation of the confrontation. Inertia took care of the rest. We know it can happen. Don't let it happen to you.

I tend to lean towards appendix IWB carry when driving,not the most comfortable,but bearable for all my daily driving,and is the most accessible position to draw from while seated in the truck. If I was on a road trip or knew I'd be in the truck ALLL day if probably keep it in center console.

Ankle carry works particularly well while driving, easily accessible...

Getting at my IWB while seated and fumbling with the seatbelt just isn't practical...

Not like the situation has come up yet *knocks on wood* but I like forward thinking...

I don't even have to go to FL to see problems. I see problems in any big box store parking lot. If I have to hang a hat on the gun, I would prefer to shove it down between the seat and the console.

I carry FBI cant (gun angled back, grip up). I have No issue drawing from a sitting position. I had someone try to draw on me in the car, they struggled, I beat them to the punch.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

I like the idea to just buy 2 guns, one for the truck, and one to carry. You always have one easy to get to when in the drivers seat, and when you get out you have your carry gun in its preferred position.
