bluefront Yep...... I'm in the process of constructing a permanently mounted lock-box in the hatch, bolted to the back of a seat. I'd like to disguise it with carpet (or something). Stay tuned.

bluefront Heh...you just need to practice at it. Your hand passes right past that spot as you exit.....it doesn't take much extra movement to pull the gun out as you're standing up. It does take guts to defend yourself.

The alternative around here is to lose your car....and sometimes your life.

Klondike that pepsi gun idea is pretty good, but a car jacker may be pissed if he sees you going for something, but i guess if u yell i just want mah pepsi man!

bluefront We've had some recent changes in the law concerning carrying guns in your car......in Missouri. It is now legal to carry a gun loaded or unloaded, concealed or not, anywhere in your car, in this state (Missouri).

You do not need a carry permit.....just a legal/registered hand-gun. So this Pepsi-mod is perfectly OK.....just don't cross the state line with stupid Illinois.

CKA Very cool idea and BradWhite great job!

whynotthinkwhynot Car jackers in Memphis can't drive manual transmissions. More than once we've seen stories about a failed car jacking attempt due to a manual transmission.

bluefront Disclaimer.....I would suggest you get a carry permit for this setup. Depending on the circumstances, and where you're driving, this mod could cause some legal troubles, if uncovered. So do it at your own risk.

A loaded gun in your car is worthless, unless you can get to it quickly in an emergency. Car-jackings are a frequent occurrence in St Louis. Let him have the car you say? In St Louis, after you give up your car at gun-point, you are often shot to death anyway. This mod gives you a chance to live....if you find yourself a victim.

You need a small gun to be totally stealth.....my Baretta .25 is a good choice. It fits in my pocket, or in this Pepsi bottle. If you're left-handed, learn to shoot as a right-hander. As you exit the car, pull up the Pepsi bottle about 4-5" with your left hand. The handle of the Baretta is exposed, and you're ready to defend yourself in a flash.

I used a round foam disk covered with black felt, and glued it inside the bottle. The thing looks like an opened bottle of soda.....and the gun is completely hidden from a casual observer. I lined the bottom inside of the bottle with felt, and covered the edges with black duct tape....to keep from scratching the gun finish. This project took about 1/2 hr.....and might save my life.

BradWhite And in fact in MO you DO NOT need a permit to carry your LOADED pistol in your car!

From the website above:

Do I need a CCW to carry in my automobile? - No. Anyone age 21 or over, and otherwise legally able to own a handgun may carry that handgun concealed or not concealed in the passenger compartment of their automobile, loaded. . It only applies when the person is inside the vehicle. If you step out of the vehicle for any reason with the firearm concealed on your person and do not have a concealed carry endorsement, you may be at risk of being charged with a felony.
