Default Carrying one firearm?

For those who only carry only one weapon, when in your vehicle do you remove the weapon for easy access and reholster when you exit?

I carry with a forward cant in a serpa holster. Even from a sitting position access is easy.

I do remove it for easier access, but it's not necessary for me. I can get to it just fine while it's holstered, but why wouldn't I make it a little easier?

I carry crossdraw & wear button up, but unbuttoned & untucked shirts. When I get into a vehicle I make sure my seat belt doesn't trap my cover garment & I can reach my pistol easier than from anywhere else in the vehicle, regardless if a passenger or driving.

Cross draw. Can reach it when seated. Can USE it when seated without BONKING the steering wheel if a threat is on my left.

This is how I carry as well. The only time I will remove it is if, for some reason, it's uncomfortable. I've only come across a few seats that have caused that so far.

I carry just forward of my right hip and like GollyGee, I frequently wear an unbuttoned shirt and make sure that the shirt isn't confined by the seatbelt. I can definitely draw from there. And if I have the wife with me, she's carrying as well and shoots scary good. (never scare a woman who can shoot, it could be your last mistake).

When I'm carrying just one it doesn't matter usually because I carry cross draw on front of left hip and can draw from there either handed w ease.

I carry IWB but generally tuck my shirt in behind the area where the gun is holstered and also adjust the seatbelt. Not to go off topic, but theres always a knife in cup holder and in the door compartment as backup

I got a better back up-454 Cassul strapped to the shifter and a 12 GA in the gunrack behind my head
