Wearing a firearm while seated (even for short hops) can be cumbersome, and longer road trips will be downright irritating. Plus carrying a firearm on your person while seated will seriously compromise your ability to draw.
A concealable, easy-to-install car holster will almost certainly make things a little easier and give you a better experience when traveling with your EDC piece. Vehicle safes and lockboxes can also provide longer-term secure storage – but will slow access to your firearm.
We researched over a dozen car holsters, safes, magnetic mounts, and lockboxes to see how they perform for short and long-distance travel in a variety of vehicle types and identified a number of features & models that make for an ideal vehicle holster. In our opinion, there’s no one-size-fits-all car gun holster so we provided a variety of options within this guide to make sure you find the vehicle holster that best fits your needs.
