Default Car Storage

Does anyone use a "car seat holster" or some kind of special holding device in their vehicle rather than the good old glove box?

When I am not actively carrying, I slip it into the split between the seat on my right side, butt foward for a crossdraw.

All my vehicles have a driver's side open compartment on door for an easy reach...I tried the overhead compartments; don't like them as well....
With the increased frequency of "road-rage", I'm starting to "up-size" my calibers....

Please don't store a firearm in a car. Cars are not secure, and any hype breaking glass for your stereo becomes an armed hype.

The best place to carry a pistol while driving, is on your person. If you crash and / or have to get out in a hurry, chances are you're going to have to go back for your gun.

Makes good sense to me. Storing and carrying are two different things but in a car only carrying makes sense.

Occasionally I do have to leave the gun in the car for short periods, when I visit a restricted area. I use a thick security cable and lock. Someone would have to use some real heavy tools to remove the gun.

Most thieves carry bolt cutters.

when I need to keep a handgun in the car and I can't keep it on me, I usually put it in a biometric fingerprint safe I have in my trunk every now and then. I just bought a new one a few months ago from ebay, for only 109.99. The listing is under 'Biometric Fingerprint Gun Pistol Safe keyless new NIB' if you are interested. This may not be the fastest way to retrieve it in a hurry, but its safe and thief-proof.

You realize this thread was 2 years old right?
