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?

Just stay in gun free zones! Criminals are not allowed to have their guns in these zones.

LMAO !!!

contiki sez...
I am sure glad I live in Canada where I feel very safe and I carry no guns on me or any guns in my home........

** Must be nice where there's no crime or bad guys...It's a wonder you even need cops...

Actually I enjoy living where I have rights...Right to own/carry a gun, right to own and use a radar detector and not have to rely on some yo-yo to flash his lights.

Contiki goes on to say...
If matters get out of hand than police need to be called no guns required that is how we fit into society...........

** If someone kicks in your back door be sure and ask them to "Hold on a minute" so you can try and settle things without violence or call the cops.

Someone kicks in my back door all the police needs to do is bring the yellow tape.
But there is a bad side to that....I'll have to clean up the mess.

oldhillbillyAZ says " 45 Colt Gold Cup "National Match"
One in the hole cocked and locked (safety)
In the car--On the dash right next to the radar detector. (full view)
Concealed---In my waistband with an oversized t-shirt (I'm retired no dress clothes for me.) "

I am surprised the paper boy or the pizza delivery guy in his neighbourhood are not alarmed as well..............

That is what is the matter with the USA and their love for guns...

I am sure glad I live in Canada where I feel very safe and I carry no guns on me or any guns in my home........

We Canadians like to think there are better choices than needing a gun to settle any matters.......

Maybe Canadian don't scare so easy where SOME Americans feel guns are needed to settle the issue......

I don't know why but guns have never been a issue for our family.........

If matters get out of hand than police need to be called no guns required that is how we fit into society...........

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.
