    those of you that have a CHL, do you carry on your person while in the car or do you keeo your gun within easy reach but not on your person? My car has bucket seats that don't lend themselves to either comfort or ease of access should the need arise. I'd been considering building a mounted holster behind the passengers seat back for concealed yet easy access. it would also make it easy to transfer from "car carry" to "concealed" prior to exiting.

    thoughts?

    I like to keep mine on my person all the time. While driving, I usually have to "scoot" the holster (IWB) a bit one way or the other to find the most confortable ride, but it isn't bad at all. :happy0001:

    I usually keep it on me, but I think I might try something else, cause IWB isn't the easiest draw from inside a car seat.

    I have one tucked away in a blind cubby should I need to draw while in the car strapped in instead of trying to draw from the hip or pocket.

    When the driver.....I put my IWB left of belt buckle (cross draw) this gets my weapon ot of the way of the seat belt buckle. If I'm the passenger.........right side of my belt buckle.

    Your taking the presumption there is only one in the truck...
    I don't remove mine from the hip, I do have one that is easier to get to in the truck.

    It depends: IF I'm not in the truck long then definately leave it on the hip. Long trips I usually put it in the center console if I'm by myself. If my wife is with me then she has hers in her purse. I've considered ankle carry for long trips as it would be easier to get to (I think, have not tried it out yet). So far on person carry I haven't really explored other locations other than 3-4 o'clock and is not the easiest to get to while sitting in my truck.
