How do you carry in your car? I know a lot just use their CC but others have In car systems. For me, I cannot carry at work (I work in a sporting arena) so I carry in my car all the time and CC while not at work.

Thats a good idea I'll have to try that on extended trips. I usually wear IWB on my right side but the seatbelt is a PITA thus I tend to not wear it unless going on the highway. I stick the gun between the front seat sometimes also.

How secure would your holster and weapon be in an accident with this set-up?

That's a decent question. The holster isn't really moving unless it's a side impact. The weapon is in there tight but might become dislodged on a really really hard hit....but I don't think that's gonna matter much if I get hit that hard.

Your interior looks familiar. Here's what I do in my Explorer. I am right handed and can access it easily from the drivers seat. It is pretty secure being bolted to the floor and no problems displaying especially if I open the door.

Mine is an explorer too. Yeah mine does show if I open the door all the way. But the only time it's in there is during work (to and from) really.

I like the 'pocket' made out of cotton or whatever, that hold the gun pointing down, between my legs. easily accessible, completely concealed, safe in an accident. Issue is getting gun back into concealed carry from there after parking. No worse than keeping it anywhere else, though.

I most prefer the seat-belt holster that keeps the gun pointed to my left on my chest. Very accessible, though concealment is rather moderate. Also, gun is pointed at LEO if I get stopped, or my arm, depending on driving position.

Most often, my gun is in a Maxpedition bag in a holster with more mags, on the seat next to me, or the gun is just sitting on the seat next to me. Black gun, black seat, conceals well, but safety in an accident is nil. That sucker would be out the window.

That's good. I guess you could drape something over it if you needed to. Looks like a LH paddle would work well for a right handed cross draw. I think you could probably reach it there. There's many reasons for me not to have a gun out in the open even in my vehicle but a lot of people use various holsters mounted in their cars. Space for something else and accessibility while driving are usually concerns, especially in passenger cars.

Does it stay there while you are at work?

So you just leave the gun like that, unlocked and out in the open for some dirtbag to steal it? Especially working in a sport arena, car break in are HIGH. Also if you get car jacked, that door is going to come flying open when the SOB has a gun pointed at your head. Say bye, bye to your gun, and any element of suprise.

I have a simple car safe for those times I need to leave the gun in the car. I usually CC either pocket carry or with a cheap IWB uncle mikes holster. This way the holster and gun can both go in the safe.

Actually with the door closed it can't be seen, since it's in between the door and the seat.
I'm not really following you on the car jacking part. The person would have to break my window, reach in and open my door from the inside to have my door come flying open.
I'm not really sure how a car safe helps you when you are traveling, what's the time from threat to ready to fire?
But yeah while I'm at work I have a micro safe in the car. (It's locked under the front seat) While I drive though It is 3 inches from my leg.

No micro vault under the front seat. Though I'm sitting at my desk and can see my car out of my office window (it's about 15 feet away) the off chance of someone breaking into my car isn't something I'm willing to take.

I just have mine under a folded t-shirt and have a fake lock box (full of 1.5 lb of junk) attached to my seat rail with a cable lock.

I carry mine in a Black Hawk holster mounted in my center console. Works great

Keeping secure at all times is something that every gun-owner would naturally want to...I would think?

If the paddle holster in the OP is just on the map pocket by means of the paddle attachment, it's going to move in an impact. It COULD become a "missile" inside the cabin and cause injury.

It could also come off during a low-speed collision; perhaps the type of collision where some drunken idiot would like to cause you bodily harm during the aftermath.

Most folks who carry a handgun know the importance of a good quality holster and belt. Why? Because keeping the weapon secure until you need it is important.

Weapon security is indeed important; even when in a "car holster".

While I like the car safe for NPE I am not a fan of holsters mounted in the car. While they may keep the gun handy and secure in the event of an accident, if you need to emergently bail out of car from a carjacking I want the gun on my person. I have a carjacker holster from Andrews leather. When in car gun goes from IWB to carjacker.

I will usually take my Glock out of my holster if I am driving a long distance and the gun starts to feel a little uncomfortable after a while.. I usually just sit it on my floorboard...

like the OP, I took an old holster and stuck it in the door. it's a galco matrix paddle holster. with the sport seats in the bmw, it's uncomfortable to carry iwb/owb because the seats just hug too tight, so when i get in the car, i move the gun over to the matrix, when i get out, i move it back to me. (being very careful to make sure nothing is in the holster or in the way).

for long distance drives, i usually use a shoulder holster. we just went on vaca and took the wife's car and i had no trouble carrying owb with an xconcealment holster.

On my hip works best. Always always in a lockbox or on a cable lock in any unattended vehicle. Left unattended in the glovebox/armrest/under seat/door pocket = Fail.

According to what rcw? I have been through 9.41 a million times and never seen that this is required.
