The main drawbacks to this would be people with higher vantage points (Toll booth collectors, etc) freaking out.

I think if you had a straw tied along side and sticking straight up, it might camouflage it enough that no one would guess.

actually keep it in the map pocket on the back of the passenger seat. I usually drive with my arm on the center console, or draped across the top left side of the passenger seat, its convenient either way. Extra mags in the upper part of the console, usually 3.

That is a great idea, but in Texas, it has to be hidden from sight.

I'm not a fan of car rigs. I want the gun to go with me, not the car.

If I'm driving a car my first option is always to use the car to escape a threat. If I must resort to a firearm while seated in a car I want the gun to be located in the same place every time regardless of the vehicle I happen to be in.

IWB for my SP101 at roughly 3:00. Keeps it hidden if standing or sitting. I've driven well over two hours like that without issue.

I don't own a car.

Bicycle and walking only.
Try that in my state in WINTER (@ 65)
and report back after six, long, grueling years.

Start a thread about bike carry,
and I'll be there.

My dream bike,
which will carry a RARR 5.56
in addition to the LC9s on my belt

How do I carry? In the car the handgun is locked in a case and the best place for that case is in the trunk or far rear of an SUV...no ammo loaded in the cylinder or magazine...Glove compartment or in "cabin" built in locking location is not suitable for a handgun to be carried...

A long gun..locked in a long gun case..unloaded...in the trunk or in the far rear of an SUV or vehicle with no trunk.

Personal carry ...illegal ...welcome to San Diego

Can't do in Florida. Must be concealed.
I always keep gun rugs in our vehicle so I can comply with the law.

"Securely Encased" in a vehicle (unless it's on your body)
This means a hard or soft case that snaps/zippers shut,
or a holster w/ a thumb break.

Florida Law:
Legal to carry a loaded firearm in your vehicle as long as it's securely encased.

Even if you don't have a carry permit.

I think the NRA is a little out of touch with reality, just as politicians are.

I make no changes when I enter or exit my cars. It stays IWB at approximate 4:00. I don't personally care for "car carry rigs". YMMV

In SC vehicle carry law with CWP or not...

(9) a person in a vehicle if the handgun is:

(a) secured in a closed glove compartment, closed console, closed trunk, or in a closed container secured by an integral fastener and transported in the luggage compartment of the vehicle; however, this item is not violated if the glove compartment, console, or trunk is opened in the presence of a law enforcement officer for the sole purpose of retrieving a driver's license, registration, or proof of insurance. If the person has been issued a concealed weapon permit pursuant to Article 4, Chapter 31, Title 23, then the person also may secure his weapon under a seat in a vehicle, or in any open or closed storage compartment within the vehicle's passenger compartment; or

(b) concealed on or about his person, and he has a valid concealed weapons permit pursuant to the provisions of Article 4, Chapter 31, Title 23;
