    1. I know that its not a good idea to leave firearms in a car/truck.agreed.

    2. Its best to have a firearm on your person even when in a car/truck when its needed.


    Has anyone made, modified a center console or some other type of place to keep a pistol that is ready when needed? Ideas, Pictures or links would greatly be appricated. thanks

    Something like this from
    Cabelas ?

    It's for newer trucks, but some searching on the web should turn up something similar for whatever you drive. Another option is a small, locking handgun case with a cable that attaches to the seat frame.
    Like this one

    Case law on this matter has a certain twist here in Arizona.
    If the gun is hidden in the car, all passengers must have a CCW or they can be charged with carrying concealed without a permit.
    The ruling stems from an incident wherein a CCW holder had his pistol stashed in the center console of his car. His wife, not a CCW holder, was riding in the passenger seat. Man gets pulled over by the police. He dutifully informed the officer that he was a CCW holder and retreved the pistol from the console. The cop charged his wife with a concealed weapon violation. It was upheld because the court ruled that she had access to the concealed weapon, therefore, she needed a CCW!!! :what:

    So, unless all people who ride in your vehicle have a valid CCW, it's not a good idea to stach a gun in your car here in AZ!!

    I keep my gun under my control on my person.

    I used to put my 45 in the center console in my suburban ,the drink holder would lift up and there was a huge space under it to hide stuff.Most chevy trucks have the same thing

    When I had my Cavalier, I would keep my SP101 in an ankle holster in the center console. It was a leather holster, so it was big enough and strong enough to keep the gun at the perfect angle to draw from.

    I haven't kept one in my truck.

    Unless the laws have changed recently, wasn't a pistol in the vehicle if it were in plain sight OR in a holster?

    My solution. I don't feel comfortable having a car gun, but I do sometimes need a secure solution occassionally.

    These are what I prefer and have used/ suggested I guess for 25 years or so now.
    Simplex is the name of lock, mine has Simplex on the box.
    No batteries, easy to change combination.

    These meet regulations in jurisdictions where one is to have a lockable container as well. [See CCW regs on travel, etc.]

    Sales Reps put one in the trunk, hidden as well.

    Kidnappers put Sales Rep in Sales Rep's vehicle trunk, , there is a backup handgun, ammunition, light, knife...even spare disposable phone.

    Sales Reps not only train and practice breaking out their own trunks, also other makes and models.
    :)

    Thirty-something lady Rep keeps a .44 spl in her back-up lock box for instance.

    :)
