That would definetly be nice, unfortunetly my 23 is to big to fit up there. How do you like your M&P?A good hiding place for a small weapon or other small valuables is under the cup holders. Open the map storage compartment reach down and lift out the cup holder. The two center overhead compartments are good for keeping a weapon within quick reach. My M&P Compact fits in there nicely...just release the door and it swings down nicely.
I find the door pocket less than ideal to access, mainly because the door handle/rest dooda and the seat make the angle difficult. Those overhead compartments as mentioned in earlier posts are good for a smaller weapon. I sometime put the holster between the seat and console and cover it for access inside the truck. But to be honest, I often just shuffle ithe whole setup forward on my hip so it isn't stuck behind the seatbelt and leave it there. Not ideal really, but better than it being in a box.I also have a keypad safe that I thought I needed and bought at a gunshow, and have yet to install it ina vehicle. Under the rear seat seems like a good place to secure a weapon when you can't carry, but I han't decided where to carry when I'm driving. I'm thinking in the door pocket, covered with something. I would have to reach for it weak hand, but that's not as obvious as reaching to open a compartment. Security is an important issue that I havn't thought about with the new truck. I have had a pistol stolen out of a different truck, and it's a real PITA.
Here's a few of the older threads, might provide some more ideas. I rarely carry a gun on me because I work on an AF base and you can't carry weapons there.There are several older threads related to this subject. Some pix of mounted holsters, vaults, etc. Get us a pic of your set-up Steady. Same for any of the others that have not piped in on the older threads. :director:
