The gun should be fine in the console as long as it's your gun and you are operating the vehicle. At least that's how we do things in Texas.

Is what you're saying that you are afraid that even though both

you and your wife insist it's yours, somebody may try to claim it's hers?


Possible, IMO, but not probable. If there were a dispute between

the driver and a passenger, possibly, a LEO might attempt to

assign possession.

First of all, the Invicta 8926 is a very solid timepiece, kudos on the good tatse.

Second, I would take heed of the first responder's comments and experience. Also talk to your local sheriff's office and find out what they'd do in such a situation.

Thank you, it was my favorite timepiece until I broke the glass. I have yet to replace it but miss it dearly.

Exactly. I am curious that a LEO may say because of the location of the firearm that it belongs to my wife. I don't need those problems.

Generally speaking, in the absence of compelling information to the contrary, the owner who is also the driver has ultimate care, custody and control of the vehicle and the contents. If the driver denies ownership of a particular piece of property that is clearly closer to the passenger, the passenger "probably" now owns it. Be it drugs, alcohol, guns, etc.

The lack of knowledge by so many if you is disturbing, espically in light of the resoruces avaialble to you.
The answer is simple it depends where you live. For exanple in Washington state a CCW holder can have the pistol in the cabin of the car and it is fine and legal.
So check the local laws. Especaily when traveling.

Agree. Depends entirely on the state. In Massachusetts, for example, the weapon must be "under control" of a person with a license to carry and that means not accessible to anyone else so a gun anywhere in the car and not locked up is illegal even if it is unloaded.
