Plain ole glove box here. One in every car. Yes, I realize that it can be broken into, but so can anything if someone wants it. This will just detour the more honest thieves! I Like a lock box under the seat idea, but two probs. I go in water that deep, and don't need to flip thru keys unlocking it while being jacked.
2010 JK. Rubicon Express 3.5" superflex, 35" BFG KM2s on Mickey Thompson Sidebiters, Poison Spyder Rocker Knockers, Poison Spyder rear Rockbrawler II bumper, Poison Spyder front Rockbrawler bumper with Warn M8000-S, AEV Snorkel, Spartan front locker. Oh, and tons of "Trail Tattoos!"
Looks good. Thats exactly what I have for when I drive because I appendix carry and its usually not very comfortable to do drive like that with me XD. I need something for my range days to transport my AR
I have a CCW but I always hated carrying inside the waistband while sitting in my Jeep (or any vehicle) so I just bought a cheap Fobus paddle holster, cut some of the excess paddle off and heated the remaining paddle with my wife's hairdryer so I could mold it flat and get rid of the curve in order for it to fit flush against my center console. Then I drilled a small hole in the paddle and used the existing torx bolt that holds the side panel on to the console to attach the holster to it. Simple as that!
Now I have somewhere to securely put my CZ75 while driving. It is a lot more accessible now than inside my waistband and very quick to draw should I ever need it while in my Jeep.
Brought back memories...LOL. My first jeep was a Korean War era Willys. Bought it from a military surplice store. Had the mount and disabled .50 also. Switched mine from Army to USMC as my only mod. LOL. Had to get all kinds of permits to even mount the gun for Vet parades. Sold it to an American Legion Post.

I don't have a pic handy, but I keep mine in a holster sandwiched between my seat and the e-brake. It's tight enough that it's not going anywhere and it's enough tension that I can draw the gun out without pulling up the holster with it.
I like this in that the gun rests naturally under my right hand and it's not visible from outside the vehicle when I'm running doorless.
It also makes for very easy/natural draw in the event that it is ever needed. If you are ever in your vehicle and have need to draw your weapon, you want it within easy reach and you don't want the bad guy(s) to realize what you're doing when do draw until it too late for them.
Just my 2 cents.

States and local municipalities and counties many dictate how guns can be legally stored in vehicles. Here in WA, it's legal to carry a loaded weapon but it must be retained and on the person with the weapon.
Best idea would be to check all your local legal regs for carrying weapon in a vehicle before you start drilling holes, etc.
