Another popular solution is to employ a holster dock, which allows you to dock a holster with an attachment that’s been fixed to a part of the car’s interior such as the console, under the steering wheel, or possibly strapped to the car seat.
Some people will place their carry gun in a console or a glove box. It seems a good idea, but can pose hazards.
First, if you have to reach for insurance and registration during a traffic stop…police will not be amused. Second, the jostling and bouncing around that can occur can be dangerous, especially if the gun goes into the glove box or console with the trigger guard unprotected.
You can also place a pistol in a mobile safe, which can fit under the seat or in the trunk.
