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.

Sadly, permits are available in VA but I live so close to MD and DC it's not worth the trouble. A few miles in the wrong direction and you could be in big trouble.

It is wise to find out exactly what the laws are for your state. I would ask an instructor, lawyer, or read the law. The police probably know, but don't be too sure.

A friend of mine was nearly arrested in FL for carrying a large knife concealed. The police didn't think a CCP covered knives only guns. He spent an hour on the side of road while they looked it up.

The attitude of the police and citizens varies greatly by state as well. In FL it was considered normal to own a gun. In Md they consider you a right wing nut, crazy dangerous person, or a criminal.

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.

2009 Dodge Challenger R/T Deep Water Blue 20" rims Cool as Hell
1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX 2.0 Turbo Automatic........with 99 front end and rear facia.
1995 Toyota T-100 SR5 Best Truck I've ever owned
2005 Kia Sorento Great car but everybody keeps doorbanging the poor thing.
1975 Mustang II V-8 Highly Modified to 400+ HP, nothing stock except the radiator cap

Re: Gun holster...where to put it?

I have been looking for this type of set up and only found a shelf style for trucks.

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.
