    I see your in Sacramento. You're probably too young to remember this but perhaps you should read up on the 1991 Sacramento hostage crisis.

    Or read up on the San Ysidro McDonalds massacre. In my hometown San Diego on Wednesday July 19, 1984, 22 people were murdered and 19 were injured while dining at McDonalds. Nobody was armed, so nobody could fight back.

    I suppose the most basic reason to carry on your person is so that it gives you a fighting chance when SHTF. And nobody can predict when and where that is going to happen.

    in my truck I lay a towel on the console and seat and slide my Sig239 40.cal or model 1911 between the seat and console. Then cover the grip with the rest of the towel . The towel protects the console and covers the pistol, plus is right at my hand. Plus there is always a small 9 on my right hip unless I going to work, it is considered Foreign Trader zone so I can not carry.

    Fascinating. I just read up on FTZ's. I was unaware of their existence. I like your towel method, it is very practical. :)

    Not worried about it getting stolen?!?!?!?!? Until it gets used by some punk to kill someone else - kinda shitty attitude dude!

    And IIRC you dont have to inform an officer in WA that you have a weapon on you although it is a nice thing to do.

    Agreed. I've heard enough stories about cops getting their shotguns snatched from trunks. If the guy who takes it uses it, I think you can get sucked into it when the courts come around.

    You don't have to, but it's both a matter of courtesy and safety. You reach in the glovebox for your papers and they see you fishing around a gun, you got problems. Before they approach the car, dispatch/computer will usually warn them about the CCL as well, so it's in your interest to let them know where stuff is.

    i would think that if you immediately report it stolen...have the serial # entered into NCIC...that will absolve you of any issues

    Besides...when officers run serial numbers...unless the gun is stolen...no ownership info comes back regardless

    I also dont think dispatch or a computer can tell you if the driver of a vehicle is a permit holder...as you do not know who the driver is until youve made your initial contact...

    Many states allow for non-permit holders to legally carry in their vehicles (such as SC) and again...we dont know that there is a gun in the vehicle until we either a)see it...or b)are informed by the occupant that its present

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    i have a blackhawk serpa that i mounted in my center console for my sig 226. the belt clip is removable and is held on by 3 bolt holes. I got some screws of matching thread type and put a few holes in my center console and bolted the holster in there. Works great. I'm still debating on "breaking" the finger lock on the holster to make the gun easier to remove.

    personally...seriously...i dont want to run into a family member of someone i've put in jail out and about somewhere and be unarmed

    I have a great temper...im one of the most patient people you'll ever meet...but I'm also a realist...and i understand that there are people out there who want to do me and other people harm...and i swore an oath to protect people from harm...therefore...i carry a gun unless im going drinking

    FWIW, I keep my weapon UN concealed in the truck. Much more easy to access if needed.
