While I have tried, I really can not draw fast from behind the wheel of my car. I have a center console and this makes it hard to get to my gun on my strong side. This is bad aspect of having center console, but good aspect is console is place to put gun. The console also serves as armrest and opens straight up so pretty convenient to draw from it with practice. And console interior is narrow enough to prevent gun from rotating much and this prevents having grip in bad position. So to my questions. What do you think of having a dedicated handgun in that location? While I would take it out at night, it would often remain there when I went into stores etc. Naturally, I would be careful to lock my car doors. Also what type or even specific handgun would you recommend? I think revolver has some merit it you have to fire inside vehicle as your grip may be less than perfect and slide could jam against back of seat, etc. And in car jacking situation you could be right up against person. If semi auto I am thinking DA/SA or DA only. Since need to carry with loaded chamber this would seem best approach. Also Smith and Wesson with magazine disconnector might have some merit as easy to slip mag into pocket if have to leave handgun in car - I plan on still having my normal carry gun. So an extra gun could be a bit hard to carry. Anyhow, all ideas, comments appreciated.
