I carry a concealed handgun whenever it's legal for me to do so. I live in a rather gun friendly state but work in a state that could only be described as hostile toward firearms of any type. I therefore had a need to securely store my gun in my vehicle. I purchased a gun vault that is formed to fit the lower center console in my truck. This thing is heavy gauge steel and through bolted to the truck, so, good luck getting this thing out without destroying the truck in the process.

Assuming it's legal to do so (no self-incriminating please), do you carry in your vehicle? Have you done anything special to store your firearm? If so, what?

I carry under, whats know as HR-218 for LE........ so state carry permits don't apply... I have heard however, that you do have to abide by the state law for LE, i.e. if that state has a 10 round mag cap for LE, then you need to follow that instead of carrying a mag that has 15 rounds. I haven't seen any hard documents stating that.

One of the best ways to do both worlds is to check local/county/state to see if any of the agencies have whats called a Reserve/Auxiliary LE division, same simple concept as the Armed forces reserves, BUT just in a LE function. HR-218 doesn't discriminate between full-time and part-time, its LE or NOT, NOW Military Police falls under this as well, BUT the DoD hasn't put out any policy as to issuing some type of ID for MP's as of yet....

Course its the neighbours that ask this question as they live in so much fear daily; needing to "protect" themselves from the threats that surround them. Good grief.

Why do you ask? This is a very private matter that is none of your business.
