    i just keep mine jammed between the center console and passenger seat in my truck in a remora holster. it stays there tight and is easy to get to.

    that holster is a good idea though.

    I wish I could do that. I think in Florida being in plain site is a no no.

    its pretty nice. ohio recently passed a bill where you can now have your gun wherever the hell you want in your vehicle...and it doesnt even have to be holstered (which i think is a bad idea). i could drive around with my gun on the dashboard if it wanted too.

    I'd argue with tinted windows being underneath like that it is not in plain view, as long as you don't keep the gun in that holster when parked.

    I was in pollo tropical the other day and I was standing in line for 3-4 minutes with my gun unbeknownst to me, exposed with many people behind me. I casually felt my shirt and covered the gun without any big scene. Not one person was alarmed by it.

    i like it. but i would hesitate to use it in even a gun friendly state. i dont expect most cops would like that.

    You can, FL code says securely encased or holstered. In fact one does not need a permit to have a gun in their vehicle as long as you have it encased or holstered, but the moment you put it on your person and cover it then you need a permit.

    As strict as NY is you're allowed to carry a loaded firearm in your vehicle


    Just saying, haha.

    I thought you have to have a permit to do that. You can't just have a loaded gun in your vehicle.

    That's walking a really fine line under Florida statute (not code). It would really depend on what the LEO writes in the subsequent affidavit, i.e. how soon did he see the handgun? If he reports that he saw it as soon as he approached the vehicle and looked in the window then you may have an open carry violation/prosecution/conviction.

    There have been incidents in Florida where individuals who were in legal possession of a firearm were arrested, prosecuted and convicted. See attorney Jon Gutmacher's blog for examples.

    I really like this from a functionality aspect, but other than that it's probably not for me. I would rather not have an officer pull his weapon on me during a simple traffic stop. I would rather inform them on my own terms in a calm, respectful manner (even though we don't have to in MN unless asked).

    I agree with PAGunner. That picture is taken from near the floor with nobody in the can. With a person in the seat, i doubt the gun is easily seen from outside the vehicle. I'll be getting one soon.

    In NY you can't even own a pistol without having a permit, so my post kind of goes without saying, ha.

    Thank You Mr. B. This is my understanding as well. Also thanks for the link. I bookmarked it.

    HG. One of the great things about GT is all the great vids that people find and share. Trunk monkey is one of the best.

    Gottcha. So if you have a pistol permit but not the unrestricted permit you can keep a loaded gun in your car just can't carry it on your person outside your car?

    That needs some kind of retention IMO.
