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?

No, I just stay in gun free zones. That way, I am safe.

** LMAO The only places I know that's truly gun free is Jail or Prison.
I doubt one would feel very safe there either.
Most other places the bad guys can still have guns.... It's the law abiding citizen that's left helpless.
