I have the same (or at least VERY similar) holster for my Glock 19. I haven't really looked closely at it as I was in a hurry the one time I tried to mount it like this. I know the belt clip does not go over the side of the glove box as the pistol sticks up too far to close, but how do you have it mounted?

I'll mess with it and try to figure it out on my own while awaiting a reply.

I'm sorry, that is true. I keep forgetting that California is not it's own socialist country.

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.

tomthbomb In Texas you can transport it in your vehicle if it is out of sight. No trunk, no glove box, just not visible. That gives you a lot of leeway.
06-15-2013 07:21 PM
donmeca2020 Over here in florida you can carry in your vehicle even without a CCW permit. as long as its in the glove box or trunk. i myself just got my concealed weapons permit and plan on carrying occasionally... going to questionable or unknown areas, doing any type of craiglist transactions etc. but definetly something out of sight would be better for deterring thieves.

Also i work in one of the fields of law enforcement, so its definitely not a good idea to leave a gun in any vehicle. thats just asking for someone to rob you even if its out of sight.

I was thinking something like this, only using that molle G.e.a.r. seat back organizer thing. I have a holster that mounts with that molle system anyway.

so just remove one of the bags big enough for the holster to fit inside and cut a hole in the back of it so the straps can stick through and be mounted back to the molle. When you need to carry, unzip the bag and put your gun in the holster. When you aren't in the jeep put the gun in a lock box or something, and zip that bag back up and nobody can see the holster.

rockhard426 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.

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.

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.

Andy 1965 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.

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.

3JKs1H1 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.

Sgtt45 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.

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.

sevenservices ^ 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.

Barmanvarn 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.
05-10-2013 07:56 AM
HK_Runner 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.
05-09-2013 11:49 PM
peck1959 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.
05-09-2013 10:00 PM
Barmanvarn 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.

reade 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.

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.

fireguy 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.
