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. In California only criminals carry guns, unfortunately.

I'm a gun nut and have had a carry permit in the past and will again when I join a handgun club.

But I can't figure out this need to have one in the car. I mean in a free society, you should be able to walk around freely, right. You should not even need "gated communities".

Car jacks are up and other such crimes. Your vehicle is a better weapon if you have to use it.
