    Does anyone have a good setup for a 1993 Honda civic? It's a very small car that doesn't have much room, looking for a good setup. Please post pics, thanks.

    What state you live in? There are some different setups or you can improvise and save a ton of money

    Do you have a seat pocket behind the passenger seat? Like for a map or something like that?

    Are you planning on leaving the gun in the car? Or just to have it handy while driving? For the latter a Remora holster between the seat and console works well, or attach a Kydex holster to the console where your leg will cover the gun. As for leaving it in the car no where is really safe but some areas are better than others. The seat back pocket, under the seat in a safe, in the trunk in a safe, under the dash in a mounted holster.

    I live in NC and I don't have a pocket behind my seat. I can't carry at work so I have to leave it in the car.

    they make a safe that can be bolted down in the trunk of the car or under a seat, outside of that a hiding spot that is not the norm like glove box or console will depend on the car interior and how clever you are willing to get with it.

    What I really need is somewhere to mount a holster that makes easy access but is not in the open. I don't think I have many options, as of right now I have it between the seatbelt and center console.

    What car or truck are you driving? A full console? You might be able to make a pocket or cubby for a holster if there is somewhere that is just a blank fill in spot. Some like the strap on holster that goes under the steering wheel, or under the front of the drivers seat. Where ever you find a spot make sure that the seat belt will not keep you from access if it is retracted all of the way and locked.

    I am doodling with a pop up holster for a car or truck that is spring loaded and will replace the cup holder on a console or other available space.

    I(f you are right handed you could look into a modified left hand kydex holster strapped or mounted under the steering column.

    This way the pistol is between your legs pointed toward the firewall with the grip facing correctly for your right hand to retreive it like a normal draw.

    kind of like this (found on google images):

    I had the very same dilemma, for me my most uncomfortable time to carry is in the car. I'm a big guy so there isn't a lot of room for a gun to fit, also not a lot of room makes it VERY hard to draw if I ever needed to. So i have done a lot of research on this and have found there are actually quite a few options out there. The holster that SSGN_Doc posted is actually a holster sold by the NRA so if you go to the NRA-store online you can find that holster. My only concern would be if that panel in the civic is strong enough to support that much weight (you can always reinforce it). The NRA store has one other option I believe that attaches to your seat belt.
    I found another site with designs I like so much more! The web site is: http://www.texascustomholsters.com/
    They have lots of pictures if you scroll to the bottom of that first page.

    I like this design the most

    image-3023524128.jpg

    But my main carry gun is a model by beretta that is no longer made and NO one makes anything for so I decided to make my own out of kydex but it will be similar to the picture I attached. If that interests you to make your own let me know and I can show you where and how to get started with kydex.
    If you can't take your gun into work with you personally I wouldn't leave it just in a holster in my car I just don't feel comfortable doing that my self. So what I did is I went on amazon and I found a little lock box that just fits 1 gun and it has a steal cable you can attach to your seat base. You can get a 3number combo or a key lock. I'm sure someone could still get it if they really wanted but I'm sure it would slow them up.

    I hope all this helps let me know if you have questions and good luck!

    I would get a strong plastic holster and then bolt it way under your steering wheel

    That could work, you may need to make some kind of brace behind the panel to help support the weight ( that depends on what gun your using of course, I don't remember if you said what kind it is). But that should be fairly easy to figure out

    I usually park where I can see my vehicle during the day (paranoid).

    My dad leaves in the door of his pickup, I've taken a standard hip holster and riveted to the bottom of my front seat next to and on frame of the lever that allows for adjustment of nearness to steeringwheel. Tried it on console between seat and console, but got in way of buckling belt and was too tight a passageway for quick access.

    I would rather have it between the seats for quick access. So far that has been a challenge because of the size of the vehicle.

    I would take a picture but the confined space under my seat disallows for one sufficient enough. Sorry man.

    I understand your desire to have it more readily accessible, that's why I tried it on the console first, the problem is that your draw hand has no room to grab it without doing so fingertippedly, which is slower and less ready than under the seat. If your seat was made of plastic you could do it on the correct side of things, or if your seatbelt assembly is solid enough you coupd attempt to affix it that way, but stay away from screwing or drilling anything into it, go with zipties at that point.

    Ok, thanks. I have a spot beside the center console but evergreen will be able to see the weapon especially if they're in a truck.
