Yes, I remove my weapon from my holster and put it in a place where I have easy and quick access to it. I do this for two reasons. First and more important is to protect my leather seatback. I say more important because the chances of doing damage to this area are far greater than the chance I am likely to need my weapon to protect myself. Obviously if I do need my weapon, then its accessability becomes paramount. And second is the readiness of my weapon to my reach.
