Any of you guys have any experiences with car/truck holsters? I'm thinking I'd really like to have a holster in my truck somewhere - perhaps in my console between the bucket seats. Of course, I'd only do that once I have my CCW license (hopefully next month). I've seen one or two, and I've thought about getting a left-handed no-clasp hip holster and just bolting inside my console... I think it'd be cheaper than the ones I've seen specifically made for this purpose. I drive a Chevy Silverado 2500 HD, so I've got plenty of room for this exercise, but I've never tried to do this. Anyone have any tips?

Your idea sound good, so many places a handgun can be concealed in a vehicle. Of course just be sure everything complies with your local laws. What State are you in?

I dont know about Kentucky, but here in Texas whether you have a CCW or not the weapon in the vehicle must be concealed, in Louisiana the law is the same.

Well, that's the plan. And as for the prevailing laws... I hope to find that out in the CCW class.

Weird that it has to be concealed in some states. Wonder what the reasoning is.

The key here, is that the weapon is actually "secured"...sudden stops, impacts turn everything in the vehicle into flying projectiles...

Yup - that's right where I'm starting - bought one last night. It's hard to pass up a $13 holster...

EDIT

Well, nuts. Here's what I just found:

Automobile carry:
Firearms (rifles, shotguns and handguns) may be carried loaded and in plain view; loaded handguns may be carried in the glove compartment (center console box carry is not allowed).

That under-the-steering-column holster is looking better all the time. Hmmm...

The reviews of the holster is very good, not one person on you tube gave it a bad mark. They praise the retention and one guy claims he used his for a whole year without any cracking or splitting. This guy made a IWB holster out of his

Ah - looks like Kentucky has been amending the laws to relax things if you have a CCW permit. Looks like you can pretty much carry it anywhere you want based on some reading I've done.

Here is the problem I have with a gun in the car/truck and not on the person. If you get jacked or separated from you vehicle the gun is out of reach. I carry on me all the time and what I found works is tuck my shirt behind the holster when I sit down so if need be unbuckling the seatbelt and grabbing the gun is all one move
