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?

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.

get caught carrying around a fire arm up here and you'll end up facing a fine and possible jail time.
