So, I went shopping for a holster to secure my firearm while in my car that will give me easy access. I looked at the magnets (didn't want to drill into my new car), under the steering wheel holsters, and a variety of others. I quickly became discouraged in not finding just what I wanted. I changed my search to car seat covers, just for the cushions, not the backs. This is what I found. These sear covers have pockets on the front edge of the seats that seemed about right. I stuck my Sig 365 into a pocket and I liked it. It might not be ideal for all situations but it seems to work for me. I believe that if it is brilliant but it works, it is not brilliant.  So what do you guys think? Yes or no?

I have a PepBoys cup holder in front of the middle seat in my truck.  Perfect place for whatever gun I have that day.  I throw a towel over it so as not to be too tempting.

I like how it looks easy to access, but crash worthless is kind of a big deal to me. I feel I'm more likely to be in a car accident than a shooting, so I'd be concerned that the pistol could "get lost" or become a projectile during an accident. I even carry a pocket knife with a window breaker and seat belt cutter in such a way I could reach it with either hand. I've never been in anything worse then a fender bender, but my military background has made me a little concerned about safety, especially in transportation.

Whatever works for you. Personally, I would consider using the glove box. That's assuming it can be reached easily.

I have the same concerns.  All forms of carry will have its own limitations and the best we can do is to try to guard against what each one of us feels is the most likely scenario.  I will probably keep using this for now until I fine something better.

I always carry on me when driving. If I intend on leaving my truck or car, I use a gun vault in the console, like if I go to a Gov't bldg.
But I never use anything to carry my pistol, other than my V3.
