Could not agree more with your statement. Never ever leave a firearm unattended if it is not locked up in a safe or vault. When my weapon is with me it never leaves my body until it's getting put back in the safe.I have several firearm decals on my rear window including a 6x6 Glock one. Proud as hell supporter of the NRA and not once has my Jeep or truck been messed with or tried to be broken into @Ed El Man

I used to. New problem though while I try to reassess things.

I have a Ruby with leather seats. And the butt of the grip of my G43 pushes against the seat while I'm driving. Enough to put a substantial indentation in the leather. Over a short time of everyday carry, I'm betting my seat will be ruined and need to be reupholstered.

I've carried appendix, but I DESPISE that position for a multitude of obvious and less obvious reasons.

Anyone else have this problem? Does the seat hold up to 3 o'clock carry position?
UPDATE:
I've discovered a high-tech fix.

I use an old folded-up trail map and jam it behind the grip of my pistol as I'm driving. It has prevented any leather damage to the seat, and is barely noticeable.

LOL. Hey whatever works. Condolences to the Farkle Industry.

Regarding when and whether you can or should shoot, arbitrary laws should be the furthest thing from your mind.

Your job is to assess the threat, and decide whether you need to shoot in order to stop the threat.

Legal concerns have no place in the moment of a fight. They will only diminish your effectiveness.

As my late friend, hunting partner, and mentor Colonel Jeff Cooper put it, legal issues are Problem 2.

They have no place in your mind while you are solving Problem 1.
Hold up! You were friends with Col. Jeff Cooper?

I carry at least 1 pistol and 1 AR everywhere I go. Don’t judge me, you don’t know where I go.

When I go to Texas I’m basically a 3 gun match on wheels. No offense Texas, but y’all is kinda unstable. Lol.

I "usually" carry a S&W 9mm Shield 2.0. It's super compact and easy to conceal.

My main issue is that I don't have a lock box in my JK so I don't have anywhere to put it while at work. Which also means I don't have it while going to/from work or anywhere I stop enroute. So lately I've been looking at console lock boxes for the JK so I can have it with me all the time. Having a CCP doesn't do a lot of good if you only have it with you sometimes. Chances are good that when you need it you wont have it.

Guns are scary.
I've found that those that think guns are scary have never been properly taught how to shoot one. Once taught properly by a trained professional, they find it quite enjoyable. :) Find a reputable gun range near you, a great instructor, and go have a blast (literally & figuratively). :)

So when you leave your Jeep, are you carrying that AR....or is it unattended in an unoccupied vehicle?

I alway have an XDS 9mm at my side. If I’m going on a trip I have a side folding sbr AR-15 suppressed.
Seeing as Wisconsin isn’t exactly a huge state, I’m assuming you either enjoy asking BATFE to leave or have a pistol brace you can swap onto it?

I’ve seen various hints in many threads that make references to firearms. So I’m curious: how many of you carry a weapon, open or concealed, in your Jeep?

I’ll start. My answer is “yes, always.” My EDC is a SA XDm .45 cal, concealed.

If you are anti-gun, please don’t shy away from posting. Your opinions are valid too.
While I agree that “anti-gun” folks are welcome to post here, I thoroughly disagree that their opinions are “valid”.

Per Oxford dictionary: valid - (of an argument or point) having a sound basis in logic or fact; reasonable or cogent.

There is nothing logical, factual, reasonable, or cogent about the notion that I don’t have a basic human right to armed self defense. I’d be happy to debate any statist on here who believes in the validity of that Delaware LTC application or any other magical/despotic beliefs they might have.

Hey let's take it down a notch buddy. I had to look up 3 words in your post because I didn't know what they meant. It's one thing to be pro gun but it's another to be all proper English statesmen.
