I have to agree. Although an obvious 2A and NRA supporter, it seems like anything with the NRA logo is an invitation for a BG to break your glass to see if there's a gun inside. I avoid all logos and advertising to avoid that potential hassle.

I carry in a car the same way I carry in a restaurant, theater, WalMart or anywhere else.

Since Florida has over a million concealed carry licensees, all cops know. And, since none of those licensees has ever drawn against a cop, every cop is relieved if you tell them.

In Florida, it's assumed that everyone is carrying.

I carry it on me. If it is located anywhere else and I have to exit the vehicle in a hurry it will probably get left behind

In a Remora had one in both door pockets this weekend traveling keep a micro fiber cloth lightly over them if I am trying to keep them out of sight but they are often in plain sight when driving depending on vehicle , always a back up some where on vehicle.

​Yes. You no longer have to conceal your holstered firearm while in your vehicle provided you have a license. If you do NOT have a license, you WILL need to keep your handgun concealed. Keep in the mind that the handgun must be "on or about" your person. This generally means that you must be able to access the firearm without "materially having to change position" to retrieve it. In layman's terms, "within arm's reach." It still must be in a holster.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I've been using a clip holster a lot, lately. I frequently carry my Texas-made Bond derringer in that. If I go thru a rough place at night, I clip that to my shoulder seat belt, and let it rest on a fat belly for quick retrieval. Some things are very good, and gun laws are getting very much better, here. I pity my CA cousins for the life they are suffering to live. I keep tellin' them...

I always have my SP101 at 4 o'clock in an IWB Crossbreed holster, but it would be hard to draw while seated. However, I have a Taurus M605 in the center console all the time, as it stays in the car. I can get to that in a flash. Bear in mind that this is legal in Virginia. It might not be legal in other states.

NRA sells a nifty under the dash mount. If I had a .45 in my car and if I had one of those holsters I would...along with the .380 in my pocket

My carry gun stays on my belt (OWB) at 4 o'clock in or out of the car. My wife's carry gun is in her "Carry" purse, and I keep a P-95 in a safe under the back seat.

In my truck- my holster tucked between the drivers seat and the center seat, another three oclock in side my belt.

Course I'm in Az and have had LEO's see it and border patrol with no issues.

I live in the most restrictive area of the most gun restrictive state. I cannot get a CCW unless I can prove that my life is in danger (as it is anytime on the road anyway). The preceding does not mean that I travel unarmed. On every road trip, I carry either my Glock 17 or Colt Gov't. .45, with loaded magazine, in a metal "gun safe" lock box. The lock is a combination lock on the front of the box.

Here, the law requires carrying the gun and ammo in separate, lockable areas of the vehicle. Sorry, not possible with a small hatchback. So, I carry the gun, with mag not inserted, laying side by side in the unlocked box on the passenger seat within easy reach.

If I am stopped by police for any reason, I simply reach over and spin the lock wheels to lock the case. I have been stopped for various reasons, many times (not for bad driving or law breaking), and have told the Sheriff or CHP or City cop that I have an unloaded firearm in a locked case in the car. One or two cops wanted to see the case and then said "that's fine, continue with your trip" after seeing that it was indeed locked. None of them even wanted to see the gun, or even asked about the model or brand.

The last time this occurred was at least a decade ago. With current events, my next stop might have a somewhat different outcome. I don't care, and will still carry this way. To use a favorite LEO phrase, "It's better to be judged by twelve than to be carried by six".
