That's a nice spot for it, secure and easy access. With those snaps it can be quickly removed when your ready to exit. I wish my truck had that setup.

The wife and I in the car and I had put mine under the seat. Well when we got home I had to get out of the car and reach under the seat to reach the pistol. I could see it now me with a finger up saying to the BG "be with you in a sec" while climbing out of the car and reaching under the seat. Last time I will do that.

My advice would be to figure out a way to cover it a little more while in the door, but make sure it is easy to get at and out if needed. Maybe a small towel or cloth would be simplest.

I drive a Mercury Grand Marquis. My last several cars were Crown Victorias. It works great in all of these cars to stick a 1911 Cmmander or S&W 3914 vertically between the individual front seats and lower the armrests to conceal the gun.

My daily driver is a Pontiac Vibe, I just slip my IWB holster between the right bolster and the center console, and I am armed in the blink of an eye...
My windows are tinted dark and it is an open carry state so between them two facts I'm good to go.

When I lived in California my local Leo said that I didn't deserve to be armed, concealed or otherwise, they also wouldn't allow me to have tinted windows, it's nice to be nanny-free.

Under the seat will get you jail time in SC. Even with a concealed carry
permit.

Handy location and fine while you are driving. I do have some concerns.
1) What do you do when you get out of the car (at the gas station or at the mall, etc.)?
2) As mentioned previously, you open the door and everyone in eyesight of that door knows you are armed. Usually not a happy situation, especially during a traffic stop.

the console on my camry will hold a commander a spare mag a mkIII can of punch and a set of asp cuffs (the pink or yellow ones) and the lid will still close. In my old jag, an 89 xjs, there is a leather map pocket on the side of the transmission which lined up about halfway between my righ knee and hip. add a cheap clip on left hand galco iwb and you have the perfect hideaway.

The weapon is on my hip before the doors open...shocking...If it doesn't go in, off to the glove box it vanishes...This is only at gas stations...I carry "everywhere" else. As for traffic stops...The concealed carry permit makes its red carpet debut before a word leaves my food-hatch, upon which I kindly let the gentleman know exactly where my subway tunnel is hidden...I don't know about the majority of you fellas, but I've never been asked to exit the vee-hackle on a routine traffic stop...In Tejas anyway...Maybe I'm just lucky.

I too, as hard as it may seem, thought of this thankfully before anyone on here, or anywhere else, pointed it out first. It is warming however, to know people on here actually believe I haven't a brain. HA!
