    What are some creative ways to hide a gun in a car? Is there a way to modify a seat to make a pocket to slip the gun in or something like that? I was going to bolt a pistol safe to the floor behind the passenger seat, but that is a bit out in the open for me and I'd like to put it somewhere a smash and grab crackhead would not think to look. Any ideas are welcome. By the way I drive a small economy car if that helps any.

    Get an empty tampon box, put the gun in it, and toss it in the back.

    No male of the species will ever look in there. I promise ya.

    McDonalds?

    + 1 to the McDonalds bag. However I have an empty cup (with straw) and balled up cheesburger wrapper at the top of the bag giving it a more tawdry appearances. Takes a desparate thief (maybe looking for spare fries :D ) to paw thru your fastfood garbage.

    But I DO like the empty tampon box idea :evil: ALOT

    Big SLURPPY cup

    I remember seeing Robert De Niro using a very large SLURPPY cup to hide a little back-up palm pistol .38 revolver type in a movie once. :cool: He left the straw in the cup. :banghead: I can't remember the name of the movie right now. :banghead:

    :confused: Does anybody re-call the name of / or remember seeing the movie?????????

    Secure It

    I have a lock box called Secure It. Meets TSA specs and comes w/ a 1500# test aircraft cable to wrap around whatever. Will hold a full sized semi-auto and will defeat a smash and grabber unles he has a bolt cutter on his person. I hook the cable around the seat frame and then stick the box between the seat and the door and it is invisible in our car and the SUV. It's really handy when we go out to NV (where our CWP's are not honored) just park the car on the UT side of the parking lot, lock up the firearm, and walk into the Casino and eat King Crab (which will happen tomorrow!!!):)

    Careful.....Check your local laws first. If you get caught with a gun in SC in any other place in the passenger compartment other than the glovebox or the console, you could be in a heap 'o trouble. Unless you have a CWP, then it has to be on you or your pocketbook, or GB or console.
    Now if you're talking about safe storage while the car is parked, I could probably come up with a dozen places if I thought about it long enough. Maybe a flap on the carpet where you could store it under the padding?

    i have a Secure It box as well, i keep it under the driver's seat, with the cable attached to the seat frame. i figure it will stop a smash and grab thief well enough, and it wasn't that expensive.

    In Florida, "securely encased" supposedly means that you have to physically open or undo something to access the weapon. In a snapped holster, in glovebox, inside a box with a lid, in a compartment, something. I think the lawyer who wrote the book of advice and info specifically mentioned having a pistol in a paper bag would be really pushing the limits of the law, and would likely wind up a test case (bad).

    I assume you are wanting to secure it while you are away

    Check out Center Of Mass. Make sure you scroll to the bottom of the page. Take the cable and wrap it around one of the seat mounts in your car then put the safe under the seat, or under a floor mat, or throw a towel, rag, or something else that is convenient on top of it.

    Using a holster with a clip on belt fastener, cut a slit in the front of your drivers seat,,, low center, as low as it takes to get to the cross bar, clip the holster on it, and take a piece of fabric similar to your seat, and crazy glue it to the front of the seat, so it comes up and falls over to the front to cover it. Totally cover it, so IF/WHEN it is discovered, it can only be through a search, nothing visible from outside.....

    ONLY if it is legal, of course....... wherever you are

    Here in Georgia, you can carry a pistol in the compartment or open in your car without a permit.

    I have a center console right up next to my front seat, so I stick my holster'd .38 revolver right in between them, sliding from the front. The clip on the holster keeps the holster from coming out w/ the gun, if pulled. I'll try to get a pic later...

    Lincoln Town Car has arm rest in door that swings up to reveal console. Took me a couple of weeks to notice it when I bought the car. Nice place and it meets Ky law.

    Hiding a gun in a car?

    Well i don't think American citizen should have to hide a gun in their car, Truthfully i believe if you have a gun and you have a permit you can holster it.
    Everyone respects a man with a gun. On another note the movie with Robert D.
    i believe it's Taxi not sure though. By the way this is my first post i love this website

    Depending on how you carry, it can be rather tricky to safely and successfully draw while seated in a car. It's preferable to many to have a separate one for quicker access. That's why I support car carry, but one should do what works for them.

    SC law :

    a) secured in a closed glove compartment, closed console, closed trunk, or in a closed container secured by an integral fastener and transported in the luggage compartment of the vehicle; however, this item is not violated if the glove compartment, console, or trunk is opened in the presence of a law enforcement officer for the sole purpose of retrieving a driver's license, registration, or proof of insurance; or


    that would be the deal breaker if you were to have it out in the open

    Driver's seat cushion...a slit, horizontally, in the front allows a Pistol in a Holster or not, to be slipped in...stays put...towel or folded blanket on seat drapes over the front...

    Also, under folded blanket where Seat cushion meets seat back...but, making sure it cannot slide down into a crevice, it goes in a fold of the Blanket.

    Older Vehicles, always lots of room up under the Dash for as secured strap-snap Holster in any position...


    Older vehicles also, espeially, under the floor Carpet, to one side...

    I always thought the soiled undies method would be (theoretically) quite effective...:D
