As I drive and don't feel comfortable with it on my waist (unless I'm wearing my Blue Stone vest) I place firearm in a cigar box in passenger seat.

Things to consider:

If you plan on carrying it on your person, how accessible is it? If you can't easily draw it, it defeats he purpose of carrying it. Make sure you find a method that works for you.
If you decide to carry it in your vehicle, again make sure it is easily accessible. Also, what do you do if you're in an accident? Is the gun secure? If you separated from the vehicle, you won't have access to your weapon.

Glad your carrying- practice and train!

[QUOTE=clearsights;932017]one on me and the other in a holster under the steering wheel.



What do you do with the spare when you get out of your car?

In Wa. State you have to secure the weapon, make sure it isn't visible and lock the car.

Another thing to think about if you leave a gun in your car, is that if you have a passenger that doesn't have a carry permit and you leave the vehicle, they are in violation.

In a car accident, any firearm not secured could go skittering out onto the pavement for any passerby to pick up. All firearms should at least be in a mounted holster while driving to protect your CCW from confiscation for not securing your weapon and a possible civil suit for improper actions with your firearm by an unlicensed person.

A security holster mounted under or on the seat does an admirable job as long as a lockbox is available when unattended.

What does the ATF have to do with it?

depends on where you live and the laws there. in wa open carry is legal, if im just going for a short drive i keep it on me, but if im going on a longer drive i have a holster attached to my seat, that ways its secure and easily accessible.

While a holster in the car/truck is very effective. I wouldn't use one unless I could stow it when I get out of the vehicle. To a thief the holster screams break in here. Even if you have no weapon in the vehicle a break in is expensive.

I don't put any gun related stickers on my vehicles. No need in advertising I have a gun.
