Ohio land of the free. We can have as many guns in the vehicle and anywhere we want now with CCW.

I keep my M&P FS 40 in my IWB leather/kydex and I can draw it while seat belted in but its not quick or smooth. I need a good mount to put it in while driving.

Any good ideas on how to have it within easy reach but hidden when your doorless with the too down?

My S&W M&P 9 clips nicely under the steering wheel on the column and when I get to where I am going it comes off the steeing column and clips onto my belt. In Colorado your vehicle is an extension of your home, the same rights apply. Also a CCW license holder in CO.

When I'm doorless, I have my left leg partially out the door and it makes it more comfortable to had it on me(right side). I work on a base and a few years ago, one of the Federal LEOs asked if I had my CCW yet. I said "Not yet!". He said "Man, you're driving this jeep around doorless LOOKING like you carry?! You better get something before this young kids catch you slipping!" I got my CCW within 3 months of that conversation. Of course, I don't carry it on the base...

In AR you can have a gun visible inside your vehicle if you have a CCW (which I have). So, technically I could drive down the road doorless with gun on my left hip (I'm a leftie) and be totally legal.

That being said, I don't think that would be a good idea for me to try it.

I have a 511 Molle bag that sets beside the emergency brake handle, I drop the pistol in it and leave it unzipped. Very easy to get to and very out of sight. I also have a lock box under the driver's seat for when I need to leave it unattended.

Y'all got me tinkering.

Found an old uncle mikes that I don't use and realized my seat covers are covered in MOLLE.

The holster clipped to it perfectly.

Best place for a defensive weapon is on you! I can't begin to tell you how many people report their guns getting stolen out of their vehicles.

Then you will have to live with the fact, when someone uses your weapon (left carelessly in your vehicle) against another person. Sorry to soap box, but I just see this too often in my job.

Yup, seen it happen (well, after the fact). If a thief spots a holster, chances are high your vehicle will be broken into over another. Guns are easy to sell without any checks, bring a lot of cash, and put you at risk. Putting gun stickers/decals on your vehicle are an even more effective advertisement.

The only reason I don't carry my gun on me when in the vehicle is that it makes for a awkward draw. Considering getting a holster that I can wear in the rig so that I can cross draw.

When I get in the Jeep, I just slide it between the parking brake and transmission in that little nook. Remove when I leave.

^ thats a lot like what I do in the YJ. My glock holster fits nice and tight between the drivers seat and the center console. Under no circumstance will I leave it in the Jeep. If I'm going into the school or whatever, I'll drop it off at my wifes work or lock it up where I work.

It sucks, criminals can still carry in non-carry zones... but, to keep our permits we have to comply.

Leaving a weapon in a vehicle is never a good idea. When it's a Jeep, it's a flat out bad idea as they are targeted enough as is. If you must leave it in the Jeep, at the minimum, a lock box bolted under the seat etc.

I don't quite get this one either, better to have it in your control at all times on your person. In fact I think it's reckless.

If you are referring to my last post, that post is referring to emergency storage only. If someone is picking their kid up at school, going to a drinking establishment, entering a federal building etc. It's common sense and the law.

Easy $20 mount from Bam holsters. It's a magnet. Gun will not stay on during hard off road but for normal driving it's fine.

You need to make sure your state allows you to have a loaded firearm, unconcealed, in the passenger compartment of your vehicle.

Ohio allows it on the person (provided you have a CCW) but not in plain view loaded. "Loaded" used to mean a loaded magazine, not in the gun but available to any driver or passenger. "Loaded" now means a loaded mag in the gun. You are allowed to have a loaded mag nearby, just not in the gun.


Text:
House Bill 495, signed by Gov. John Kasich last month, makes the following changes to state firearms regulations:

* Modifies the definition of a loaded firearm in a vehicle. Currently, a firearm is considered loaded if a loaded magazine is present anywhere in the vehicle, even if the magazine is not inserted into the firearm. HB 495 further clarifies the definition in current law to give gun owners various options for storing loaded magazines during transport.
* The measure becomes effective March 20.
Sources: National Rifle Association and Ohio General Assembly.

Practice, practice, practice!

Again, NOONE in this thread has said they are doing this so they can leave the gun in the vehicle unattended. It is so you have quick access to it when you are driving. We all know a Jeep is not a very secure vehicle to leave valuables.

My little Ruger LCP and two mags fits just perfectly in the top part of my center console. I like how you can select the upper part of the lid to access the gun or the lid itself (concealing the gun) yet revealing what's inside the console itself. And, the whole thing can be locked.

All i'm saying is laws need to reflect reality. A firearm with no mag in it at all is not loaded. But wait there is more. Say you are a cop walking up to a vehicle and you see a pistol. Slide locked forward, no mag. That pistol could have 1 in the chamber, but by this definition it is not loaded. This definition makes no mention of this all too possible scenario.

Ambiguous laws like this, and each state says something different, make it difficult for me to carry in my vehicle. If i cross the state border to go to a match with my firearms, I have to stop and adjust where/how my ammo and firearms are located so it is legal.

Western states have a more relaxed attitude about guns in vehicles Danny. I can ride with a gun on the passenger seat if I wish in NM. I don't have a CC permit but I can carry if the gun is in plain view.

If I feel the need to keep a gun close at hand when in my Jeep, I just place it in the pocket behind the passenger's seat. Out of sight, easy to reach, and cushioned. I place it grip toward me resting on the grip and barrel at the furthest point from me in the pocket. I'm tall so reaching the gun there is no problem for me, but others may need to adjust some.

I would think someone with sewing skills could make a nice insert for that pocket to customize this sort of arrangement.

Wet Okle seat covers

Just another option. I had these covers in a car with the holster add-on on the drivers seat. It was pretty cool because there is a right and left hand draw pocket and it blends in because it is the same material as the cover. I posted a picture from the Wet Okole site but it's a little hard to see. Another nice detail is that the pistol hangs out of sight and the other pocket can be used for magazines.
It kills two birds with one stone because the covers are high quality and come in a wide variety of colors and styles.

Best place for a Holster mount is on you, either outside the waste band or inside , Never a good Idea to leave your weapon inside unsecured. What if you have to get out in an emergency .. will you remember to grab your Gun ? , If it is on you then you won't forget it period , like others have said, if you have to leave it, get a Tuffy under seat lock box and lock it up for peace of mind if someone were to break in looking for stuff. Cause in a Gun Battle seconds count , you don't have that extra time to go back and get your gun if you forget it.
