    Ok, where does everyone carry (in the truck)? Glovebox? Console? Something cool? Here's mine. Its a Glock 27 in a fobus paddle holster, with the paddle between the steering column and the plastic dash surround. Sorry for the dirty truck!

    I like that steering column idea. I have a model 27 with paddle holster and will try it out when I get home.

    I usually keep it on me as it is pretty comfortable when driving. If no one is riding with me it is on the passenger seat a lot of the time.

    The below the column holster looks nice... until you get in an accident. Your knee would own that thing, or the other way around. When I get my carry I plan on mounting a holster in the center console.

    How well does the holster hold onto the steering column? Can you draw smoothly from the Gobus without having to hold the holster? I like the idea.

    It holds well...the points that usually hook under your belt hook onto the lip of the plastic dash surround. There's about a half inch of play, but it draws clean without holding the holster. I like the location because its a much smoother and less obvious draw than trying for it on the hip with a seatbelt on. A lot of times I'll carry that gun on my hip in a different (blackhawk SERPA) paddle holster, but when I get in the truck it goes under the column. However, the Fobus never moves. The SERPA is too wide for the space.

    Here's a little less subtle idea I found online:

    Geez... Mad Max Taco!! I just keep mine in the consol. It is pretty safe where I live. Most of my neighbors have killed off the idiots:D. I have used my piece more to dispatch wounded animals more than moron people.
