That way, in a situation where you have to make a quick manuever or in the event of a crash, the pistol will stay secured in place and not be able to injure anyone in the vehicle. For the passenger seat, if you pick up a cheap nylon style holster (Uncle Mike's or Bulldog ~$15), they usually have a pretty secure metal belt clip that you can use to attach to the passenger seat belt. Just pull the seat belt across the empty seat and buckle it and then clip the holster to the seat belt. This isn't really a viable option if you have a passenger in the vehicle though.astro_wanabe wrote: If you get a license to carry a concealed deadly weapon (CCDW) then you gain the added "privilege" of being able to carry your deadly weapon concealed. At that point it can be anywhere in the vehicle, readily visible or not, as you wish. Generally when CC'ing I just leave it in my waistband. The less your trigger is exposed the less chances there are for a negligent discharge.So it has to be on the dash, or passenger seat untill i get my permit. My concern with that is it sliding it around and falling off the dash and hurting someone if it fell on them, Had that happen once. Had my pistol on the dash and it slide off and struck me in the knee. So could I mount a holster to my dash to secure it safely so it cant slide around? But still be in plain sight?
Here's a good thread on the subject. I think there might be a 2nd thread with pics of dash holster setups on this forum as well.
Your life is made up of 2 dates and a dash... make the most of the dash!
