Vehicle carry options
« on: September 27, 2017, 08:40:37 pm »
Hey guys, been a long time since I have posted. I recently picked up a Glock 19 that I want to carry in my vehicle most of the time. I just looked at a few options and this looked like the best for the price point. I would most likely go with the standard holster option. http://www.gumcreekcustoms.com/Vehicle-Handgun-Mount-p8.html

Have any of you guys used this system? Thoughts? I am open to other options, especially if they are cheaper.

keep it on your person. theres really no reason to ever take a pistol off unless you are forced to.

Try tucking the pistol under your left leg with only the handle exposed (butt facing towards the front of the car) so you car grab it quickly with either hand. This style of transport is popular with the Israeli's. When you get to your destination discreetly holster your pistol in your normal carry holster.

Drawing from a IWB or OWB holster in a car is difficult for most people and slow for the majority of people. ;)

Between the legs or on the outside of the leg?

I am not a fan of mounting my gun in a car especially since I ride a motorcycle but if I were I would seriously consider this. As a plus its an AZ business

Well let's see for most folks reaching the handle of a pistol tucked against the outside of their left leg (against the door)with their right hand would be somewhat difficult, yes?

Well I just bought one of the "Gum Creek" belts and a holster for my XDE (since nobody else has any holsters for it).  And as far as why have one, to me withdrawing your gun out of a OWB or IWB holster while seat belted in your vehicle, just doesn't work well.  Gum Creek makes a solution when you get into your vehicle, insert you weapon and then its easy draw your weapon and with out having to remove your seat belt !

OK not in the car so the kitchen table will have to suffice:

The weight of your leg keeps the pistol in place and your leg shields the trigger. The grip orientation allows for a easy draw with either hand. I've car carried that way for a good while with no problem. That's a larger pistol by the way, that I often wear daily (G21). . (13+1 45acp)

Show nuff home boy....

Now seriously it's NiBx, which does serve a function (less finish wear while reducing friction, with excellent corrosion resistance property [aka sweat] )

;)

Wait we're talking about the pistol not the table right?

There are always negatives to everything. Know the them and weigh them against the benefits, then choose.
