I think what I would do is just not leave it in there all the time. I also worry about theft in my area though.

I leave some guns in the car overnite but i live in a very low crime area. Sherriff deputy across the street another about 5 houses down. They come in and out all times of the day and nite.

Right now my bersa thunder 380 is in my truck.

Leaving one in there as its permanent home isnt a good idea. Anything neglected.for a long time prolly wont fumction when you need it most even in the best climate.

Yeah, I'm in a low-no crime area so theft is no worry of mine. Thanks for talking it out with me guys, sounds like I've got an action plan to achieve what I want while still caring for my pistols properly.

i live out in the country and a low crime city, but mine usually get taken out and put in the house when i get home. mine usually get practiced with on a regular basis, so they all get cleaned and oiled regularly. plus, doesn't matter where one of my trucks is parked, they are always locked.

When I am out in the woods or desert I will often carry one of my handguns on the front seat or under the seat. I keep it in its padded case which is easily opened. I think in either location I would have plenty of time to get my hands on it.

I mounted a holster in my car and truck to hold my carry weapon(s) I just switch them out to hold what ever I am carrying that day. I always stage my carry weapon when I get in the car/truck as IWB is too hard to draw from @ the 3:00 with the seat belt on. When I exit I just re-holster my weapon as I stand up, this way I don't have to worry about the weather or car break in"s. Car holsters can be made out of Kydex in 30-45 minutes and are cheap to make, easy to mount, and will hold your weapon in place while going 4 wheeling through W.V. anything worse than that and I figure I have bigger things to worry about LOL.

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 hope you made an official complaint.

Was this a traffic stop?

I used to live in a good part of a different city. My neighbor,caddy corner, was a KBI agent, and we had a deputy two blocks down.

The only property crime in our neighborhood in those few years, was the KBI agents house. They kicked in the back door and cleaned out his house.

He eventually sold his house to a Kansas Highway Patrol officer who kept his duty vehicle at home.
His vehicle was home the night someone got into my truck and cleaned it out to the tune of a $1600 insurance claim.


LEO PRESENCE MEANS LITTLE ANYMORE. Don't expect it to keep your property safe.

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

because I didn't want untended loaded weapons about, I would keep

my CCW and my CCW only, loaded, and with me, at all times.

So what I do is keep all others unloaded and locked up...

That's exactly how I handle the same question. It makes it so much simpler that I only have one handgun and one rifle, and very little money to afford more than that.
