Default Piece for the car?

Do any of you keep a piece in your car? I'm thinking about having one for home, car, and person, with a couple of extras for plinkin' fun, of course.

Anyway, I'm curious about proper care and if there are temperature concerns I shoupd be aware of. I have no problems with the understanding of cleaning, but need to know if there are any other considerations, such as temp limits, I should keep in mind.

Thanks fellas.

I don't need to keep one in the car, it's on my hip.

Agreed

But also check with local laws. Here in Pennsylvania it is illegal to leave a firearm in the car..permit or not.

my xdm 45 is too big for a ccw but i keep it in the truck. i dont care if it gets a little dirty or beat on, its gonna work. i wont treat my 1911s like that. its hard to get to my new agent while driving but i can pop that xdm out of the center console and i got a full size handgun 13+1 ready to go. in wisconsin it doesnt matter with a handgun visible or hidden in a car now if you got a ccw. other state may vary check your local laws

For me, I have checked the local laws. It's how I got away without having a CC permit for years. MS vehicle carry is VERY lenient.

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

Local LEO's still treat you like a criminal even with a CCW here.

I had a run in with the local PD last year, I alerted the officer that I had my weapon so he didnt freak out while reaching for my wallet(I carry on my 5 o'clock above my wallet) he didnt give me any problems and was appreciative that gave him the heads up. While running my permit and ID, his buddies showed up and surrounded me guns drawn. I understand being jumpy when a firearm is involved in a routine stop but I had already given my info and the first officer had my pistol secured in his car.

I checked local law and there are no restrictions for peoples with CHLs, which I don't have yet, but plan to very soon. For those without I can have a loaded firearm in the vehicle, but pretty much just in the trunk, or if no trunk a locked glovebox or console.

This wasn't my concern or purpose for the post, though. I was asking about any worry about weathering. I live in the northwest where its cold and wet climate and am worried about problems with a gun left out in a car because of it. Thats my querry here. Any responses to that?

I would look at it as any other object containing metal left in that climate. It will eventually rust or gain some sort of corrosion. Not o mention any salts that may be in the air. I have no personal experience but i would assume without constant maintenance this would be n issue...unless you're parked in a climate controlled area such as a garage.

No garage, nor salty costal air, and I'd of course keep up with regular maintenance/cleaning after rounds at the quary. Hmmm... I guess it depends on if it would simply be left in the car at all times or occasionally used and properly cared for after. Hmmm
