I've thought about that. What kind of holster did you put under the seat? I'm trying to avoid drilling holes since I just got a new truck 2 weeks ago and don't want to go that extensive just yet.

I took one of the cheap Uncle Mike cordura holsters and zip-tied it under the seat to the seat wire. The holster fits a 4" revolver fine, and some smaller pistols will even fit in it while in their holsters.

Ditto. Same here. I have a cordura holster zip-tied under the seat to the frame. It has the snap strap on it but it super easy to release.

The Castle Law carries over to your car, truck, boat, airplane. Anything you can have in the home, you can have in your vehicle. So it doesn't matter if a firearm is concealed or not. A trooper pulled me over a few years ago, for a trailer taillight out. I had an LR-308, wearing a suppressor butt down in the passenger floorboard. He never said a word about it.


WRONG!

A handgun in a vehicle has to be concealed unless you have a LTC, in which case it doesnít have to be concealed but must be in either a waist holster or shoulder holster.

You had a rifle, which is allowed to be carried in public in Texas, much different laws than a handgun.



I'm not saying you're incorrect, but I've gotten pulled over a few times with the pistol in the door pocket by my foot, officer approaches from passenger side and can clearly see the gun. Simply give him a courtesy notification that I do have a gun by my foot, and they usually reply with something like "don't reach for yours and I won't reach for mine." This happened a few times before I got my LTC and I never had any kind of issues. I think it just depends on the officer and how he/she wants to handle the situation. Just my thoughts


Thatís good, because Iím not wrong at all, I even posted the law for you to read.

No need to get defensive, just simply saying a lot has to do with the officer and their discretion. Appreciate the info

Bring it to me. I'll happily drill holes in a brand new truck. smile

I completely replaced the bed on a brand new Laramie dually.

The holster I have is a JM4. It has magnets in the flap for IWB carry. Being a lefty, I place the holster in the driver door slot in my F150. The magnet, when flapped open, sticks to the speaker.

I cannot remember the name or where I saw it, but a while back I saw a lock box that looked almost spring loaded and would essentially launch your handgun into your hand. I wish I could remember the name. Maybe someone will come up with it.

Put the pistol anywhere you want it. In a plastic bag like a Walmart bag or one darker. What ever it takes to not see it. You just pick it up and start shooting. No reason to remove it from the bag.

Iím surprised I havenít saw that in here. It may not be classy but I canít think of a better way to have it exactly where you want it.

Guilty on both. I live in the ghetto and sell on the black market. Need any of the goods?

I also have smoke alarms, CO detectors, and fire extinguishers in the house. I've come a lot closer to pulling the gun than I have to pulling the fire extinguisher in my life.

I'm a firm believer in better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

I get it. Mine is in the center console. I never felt the need to create some spring loaded gadget or special holster to draw it faster.

Well I found a set up I'm gonna try. Go-Magnet has a 3M adhesive backed steel plate that doesn't require any drilling and can go anywhere I want it to. For $25 I figured I'd give it a shot. Shipped this morning and should be here early next week so we'll see!
