This might be a touchy subject but, here goes...

I am interested in setting up a place to hide a compact pistol (most likely a Sig P220 or something of similar dimensions) and two mags. I will be attaining my CCW permit in the next few weeks and am trying to see if any other ZX3 owners have set something up like this. Sorry if this is a touchy subject to some, I don't mean it to be. Yes, I know how to use a weapon and all the other questions that might come up and will be irrelevant to my questions, which is: Where did you set it up (meaning within the vehicle) and how did you go about it (have someone else do it? DIY? How?)?

isnt that what the glovebox is for? well in an emergency that's too far away i guess. me i'd make a zippered puch in hte front seat (like at teh front of the seat) and then jsut cut out a bit of foam to make it look stock. cant get any closer than that...

I would put it down by your driver side leg attached close to your seat, on the center council kind of hanging down to the floor, if your right handed its probably the best place for it other than in your lap, then put one mag in the glovebox and the other keep in the pistol.

I wouldnt suggest anything in the door because the last thing you want is for the pistol to fall out into the street.

I also have a CCW permit, but most of the time when I'm in the car I'll have my pistol either in my hip holster or shoulder holster, depending on what I'm wearing. Having it on the hip can get uncomfortable for long trips, so I usually take out the gun and put it in my glove box. The glove box is big enough to hold some decent sized pistols. It fits my Glock 34 which is an extended slide version of the regular Glock 17.

when I was a kid my uncle kept his 357 and holster on the dash lol



Hey you could do the Pass. airbag delete but leave the airbag cover and make it openable, kinda far away but would make a cool hiding spot

That's what my next door neighbor does... retired cop....

As far as the original post, I would say that between the console and seat is a bad place. Because if someone saw it, it doesn't take much to break the glass and get it. I'd say the glove box would be the safest/ easiest place for it.

You may want to be careful about concealing the weapon in your car.

According to Virginia State Police, the weapon must physically be on your person turning transport (i.e. a motor vehicle). If it is not on your person for transport, the weapon must be wrapped and/or locked and unloaded.
