    same. if i'm driving somewhere that might warrant an easier access, it comes out of the holster and goes under my left thigh.

    this tactic was taught to me by a friend of mine that trains officers for a living.

    No console, no glove box, no under the seat here in Ma. If it’s not on your person under direct control it has to be in a locked “container” in the trunk.
    Ughh....the place where Freedom in this country all started!

    Zombiekiller, both you and your friend should read this.

    In short, under the leg is a BAD idea.

    http://www.gunssavelife.com/1986-miami-shootout-takeaways-lessons-civilians/

    :)

    As far as the general topic, G Code holsters are FANTASTIC for this. Expensive, but allow mounting options and you can place/grab/move the weapon, in Condition 1, safely and effortlessly.

    I have used a the velcro-backed RTI mount on the car interior, then had a M&P Shield in an RTI mount holster. Then have an RTI mount in my daily carry backpack.

    So the weapon can come 'off' the vehicle and either go into my IWB holster on me, or it can go into my backpack.

    I have many RTI-compatible holsters for many different pistols, as well as RTI mounts for belts, droplegs, on armor, etc.

    It is a heavy initial investment but it gives TREMENDOUS safety and flexibility as handling the weapon can often be accomplished (as above) with the gun fully seated in a holster covering the trigger. :)

    Why screw around, carry your regular sidearm on your person and an AR pistol Velcroed to the fold down seat. It works in my Subaru. They are cheap enough to build now, put one in every car.

    99Zeus99, right on with the AR pistol comment. Without getting any more specific, with the current political climate and polarization of this country, I am *NOT* getting caught flat-footed in my vehicle during a spontaneous civil unrest / Twitter flash mob situation. Palmetto State Armory has CHEAP pistol kits, soft good suppliers are having crazy sales on plate carriers, and you can buy a set of steel Level III plates for cheap.

    As far as carrying your sidearm on your person in the vehicle, yes, that is an option. Not to get all keyboard ninja, but I have done high speed type vehicle training working in, out and around cars.

    In short, you absolutely CAN draw from concealment seated in a vehicle, but it takes practice and you have to also build a 'task script' that includes getting your seat belt off, rolling down the windows if you can (to avoid going deaf), possibly shifting the car's transmission, etc. If you have never shot from inside a vehicle, holy fricking moly. Forget touching off 5.56; non-suppressed 9mm subsonics are absolute bell ringers. BTW, Federal HST is FANTASTIC subsonic personal defense ammo!

    Doing a one-man-band draw during a massively stressful adrenaline dump, from concealment, seated in a car, with a pistol in condition 1 (the ONLY way you should carry -> forget trying to rack a slide especially in a car), is not something that should be taken lightly. Very easy to inadvertently loose trigger/muzzle discipline from a 4 o'clock IWB due to the biomechanics, weight shift, tight space, etc.

    Locating the pistol off your body, yet low-vis and secured, is most of the time a smarter play. YMMV, not trying to school you, but unless you regularly practice the 'task script' of an IWB concealment car seat draw, you're making it harder/more dangerous on yourself. Try it while seated/belted in your car with an empty gun -> again, getting windows open (DO THIS FIRST) and taking off seatbelt. Get a free timer app for your smart phone (or shot timer if you have one) with a random start time and attempt it with a minimal amount of stress. :)

    All good conversation regardless!!!!!

    Also, I am intrigued with the possibility of forming some Kydex to fit into the rear part of the driver's door sill compartment in the S550. It is relatively large, would def hide a small/midsize pistol yet would be easily accessible quickly with a cross draw. In fact, I'm gonna futz with it today.

    I want a rear-window rack to put my BCM carbine in. Drive around Northern Virginia, cause some heads to explode form emotional reaction.

    I use a cable tethered pistol case if I can’t c/c. That way I can lock it to the car and lock it in my safe.

    I also just printed a mount for my phone charger. It's a little hard to see because it's so hidden behind the charger. Snaps under the dash trim and has a double sided tape in addition to that. Sorry the pics are sideways. S550PhoneMount1.jpg S550PhoneMount2.jpg

    I would think a Shield would fit easily.

    Got my CC back in Feb and picked up my Sig P365 in May. What I really like is that it fits in the fairing pocket in my Road GlideD19F646B-E7F3-41B4-B087-67ABEA3F5215.jpeg
