does anyone have any good ideas on how to conceal a gun in an automobile that defies detection:wow:

How about a small pistol or revolver in an empty BigGulp or fast food supersize drink cup? I thought it was a pretty good idea when Robert De niro did it in Showtime. Think about it. During the summer everybody's got one in the cupholders in their car. Nobody gives them a second look. There was a company that actually marketed a molded insert for these cups - until lots of concerns were vocalized from LE agencies. You could probably make an insert yourself easy enough to hold the gun at a certain position.

Edit: If you're talking about a determined search, then I don't know. Dogs will find them no matter where you put them. So will any LEO or security officer with excellent training. Any of the lockboxes add to security but gives a certain "look here!" impression. Maybe underneath a spare tire in the trunk. Possibly underneath a dummy speaker cover. Even in a first aid kit might be a good place to hide.

Never saw the movie, I thought hiding a Keltec P32 in a big cup was MY idea! My wife has a Mercedes 320 CDI, and there is a little holder under the front seats that holds a G26 or CW9 just dandy, and if you did not know it was there, you would never find it.

I always use the driver's side door pocket when traveling. It's the perfect location for quick access. I never leave a pistol in the vehicle unattended over night or for extended time periods. If I did, I'd probably buy one of those in-car safes.

How about putting your gun on top of the front passenger seat then cover it with a small towel, newspaper, folder or any viable cover? That's what I do. :)

In killers (bad movie) ashton has one inside the bottom part of the passenger seat. A small cut in the front padding would conceal a small pistol quite well without being too noticeable. However I don't know if having someone sit on it would be a good idea...

I would make sure it could not bounce around the car in a quick stop no matter where I put it. I put mine in the center console .

I mounted a Blackhawk Serpa on the inside of the center console. Holds my G19 in just the right position to quickly grab it in an emergency. With the Serpa, it is locked in place and has less risk of getting thrown around if I were in an accident. I am very pleased with this setup.

My G30, or anything else I carry for that matter sits in the center console area in it's holster with usually a newspaper or whatever else I have handy to put on top of it. Seems to stay put pretty well in the holster. This is when I have to drive for more than 15 minutes at a time. Otherwise it stays IWB and I deal with it sitting in the car.

Who are you trying to conceal it from?

I just put mine in the (no lid) center console area with a pair of thin driving gloves laid over it. Of course I also have at least one other one somewhere on my person as well.

I also have a steel lockbox fastened underneath the passenger seat with a steel cable in case I need to leave it in the car for a significant period of time.

Put it in a pistol safe mounted in the trunk before you arrive.

I just bought one of these.

Secure-It Pistol Safe (http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct/?productNumber=274442)

It's big enough to fit a full sized 1911 in and flat enough to slide under a lot of car seats. I have to slide under the rear of the passenger seat because the seat adjustment bar blocks it in the front. With the included cable, you can attach it to the seat.

If someone wants it, they'll have to cut the cable or carry the seat with them. It's not impossible to steal, but it will sure eliminate the smash and grab thieves.

One of the buyer reviews said that he had to break his open. It took him 45 minutes and crowbar to do it.

Best option? Carry on your person and avoid establishments that do not allow concealed carry.

He's got the right idea there is probably an establishment that will provide the same service and welcome cc. If you really must then all of the suggestions above will work. In my GM with onstar the onstar box in the trunk works well.

I bought a cheap, reliable Russian milspec surplus pistol and that's what I use for my car carry. It only cost 180.00, and I take the magazine with me when I go in anywhere. If its stolen, Im only out $180, and the thief can't use it without a magazine that he'll never find a replacement for. I keep it in my top console for quick access. Putting it in a safe that requires a crowbar and 45 min work to open if I lose the key makes no sense to me.

I'm looking at options as well. Was thinking about putting a thick security cable like on bikes through it and store it under the rear seat anchored to the frame. Might cause damage to the gun though if a thief messed with it so I dunno

Do what the Seattle police do. . . . Just leave it lying out on top of the trunk!

I want to put a Secure Logic ezVault (http://www.gunsafes.com/Secure-Logic-20730-ezVault.html?gdftrk=gdfV21882_a_7c249_a_7c635_a_7c20730) in my truck, but to my knowledge they haven't actually shipped any yet. It would be perfect to mount under the middle seat.

Stay safe.

Maybe it has been mentioned before, but a lockbox with attached to the seat frame (like the center-of-mass brand safe) works for most people.

For a higher level of security there are console safes, like shown here (http://http://www.consolevault.com/ford-expedition-2000-2006.html).

For the trunk, a metal ammo box with a cable and padlock is easy to make and fairly secure.

The COM under seat safe and the homemade ammo box safe are really to slow down a smash & grab criminal.

Looks pretty versatile, if you don't mind, give us a review offer you get it installed.

False panels. Behind the radio in the dash, fake spare tire(doughnut) with the rubber cut & aired down & shoved in. Taped between the hood & hood lining. And that's just a Google search.

While it might take a bit of effort, magazines can be found for just about anything. If you're leaving a gun in a vehicle the responsible thing to do is put it in a lock box. Your convenience is hardly worth someone else's life.

I have always carried my guns in between the center console and drivers seat. It has worked great for me.

This is what Iíve used for nearly 3 years now. Itís secured to the driverís seat frame and tucked under it so it canít be seen from the outside.

Iíve also used it on New Years when we stay over my daughterís house and have a couple of drinks. The pistol goes into the safe and highest kitchen cabinet away from childrenís reach. Some people even use it for air travel in checked baggage (although I have not done that yet).

My daughter doesnít carry but she has one for they go to the beach, wallets and other valuables are kept secured under the driverís seat.

"Secure-It-Pistol Safe".....I had one for a year, bought it at cabela's..it was the combo not the key...I went to check on it, in the wife's jeep....couldnt get it open...so much for quick access...anyway, now the problem was to get it unhooked from the cable to get it out to the workbench to pry it open...I looked at it...I took a finishing nail and pushed the rod out of the hinge...it opened.

Next time I'm out, I look at something I can mount under the seat...

This has been working out fine for me for about a year. Free from prying eyes, secure key locked, but easily accessible for me and securely mounted to avoid being ripped out.

I would probably just end up spitting my dip in the cup forgetting my gun was in there.

Or forget and throw the cup out when cleaning out my truck.:supergrin:

I just put it in the console.
