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 a firearm because a policeman is too heavy.

We in Canada are civilized people that know where guns are needed and who should have them................

If you grow up Canadian with no guns allowed to be carried in your society you learn that guns are not the answer to any solution........

All my years of growing up in here in Ontario, Canada I had never once seen a need for a gun or it's use except maybe some hunting....if you are into hunting for animals..

not human beings.....

No.....never needed one......
