Hello, figured there was going to be a first post, so it might as well be this! I just got (today in fact) my first Glock (G19). I have a CPL, and was wondering, can I leave my pistol in my moms car? I car pool with her, and was wondering if I can bring my pistol with us, and leave it in her car after she drops me off. Her work is maybe 15 minutes from mine. Can I just leave it in her glovebox?

Sure, if it's legal for her to possess a concealed handgun wherever she drives & parks. Make sure she approves.
But you risk having your gun stolen and possibly used in crimes. Laws vary from state to state, so YMMV.

You can buy various "safes" which lock up a pistol, hidden under a car seat or in a console.

She doesn't yet have a CPL. She is going to get one within a couple weeks. The idea of locking it in a safe in the trunk is a good one. I am not too worried about any thefts. She parks in a lot that is under guard (it's actually the parking lot for Qwest Field).

better check your state law - so many different rules and you would feel sad if she gets in trouble transporting YOUR pistol

I'm betting Qwest Field doesn't allow firearms on its property except for those carried by on-duty police officers.

That is actually a good point that I didn't consider. I will have to look into more. Thanks for the advise!

Also I believe in the state of Washington you are not allowed to carry a loaded handgun in a car without a CPL whether locked up or not. I will have to look it up because I may be wrong.

It depends on your state laws.
First the person in possession of the gun must be able to lawfully be in possession of the gun.
Some states allow the driver to keep a loaded gun in their car without any kind of carry license. Some states don't.

Id say lock it in a case, and leave it in the trunk. In a locked case, out of reach of the driver, just store the ammo out side of the case with the firearm and you'd be safe.

TsTanField, thanks for the info, that is a BIG help! So, from reading that, she should be safe if I put it in the trunk of her car, and then lock a mag in the glove box. I was NOT going to keep it loaded. I just wanted to keep it in her car so that if I wanted to, I could carry after work if we went walking around Seattle or something.

H&K 4 Life, TRUST ME! I would LOVE to do that, and personally would feel safer at work if others did the same. But I would be fired faster than you can say Glock. It just pisses me off that they limit my ability to protect my co-workers should anyone come in here with intent to harm. Yeah, like a "Weapon Free Zone" is going to stop some mad man.
