I too just put my XM-9 Sub-Compact in the center console. My XD-M .40 3.8 also fits in there. I put it upside down (hand grip up and barrell to the rear). But I am left handed and it is easy for me to cross-over and grab it with my left hand.
In Florida it needs to be concealed (not in plain view). There is some rule about the need to make two moves to get to it (something like that).
Do a search on this forum. There was a string a while back or some ideas with pics.
As of 2000 in Florida it needs to be concealed in a closed container such that you must open the container to fire the gun. This means a box or glove box, but not a paper or cloth bag such as a purse. If you don't have a permit, it can't be on your person.

Is there anything made to hold it "up", let's say the headliner? then it is out of sight but "RIGHT THERE" for quick access.

My brother rode once in an unmarked (undercover - it was an old Pontiac Grand Prix) FBI car that had a shotgun in a roof rack. That's not something I'd improvise, especially knowing the Challenger's headliner. And car guns should be large, unlike your daily carry, but that's me. I only use steel 1911s and I'd hate to have one of those come loose over my head or anywhere in the cabin! Our cars have a fairly high beltline and we should take advantage of it by not having to reach up.
I'd personally prefer a setup where the gun is on my strong side and within immediate reach. Could be between seat and console (I'm right-handed) or in the door (if you're not). Under the seat sounds interesting, I gotta admit.

I keep my Hi-Point C-9 in the center console or on my hip.
I'd actually like something alittle smaller to stick in the driver side pocket since I shoot lefty.

A bobtail Commander fits inside the console upside down, barrel to the rear and grip up, for those wondering. Not nearly as good as the Charger's console, but it works. In that case I recommend removing the bottom tray and replacing it with a thick piece of cardboard covered with felt fabric.
