    I actually posted this in another area that was wrong, sorry. It is better suited for here.

    I just wanted to get some ideas of others on how you OC while in the car driving. I have a XDm with a BlackHawk Serpa slightly canted so that the barrel is somewhat to my rear and the grip is slightly to my front so that when I sit down in the seat it doesn't bind up and push around on the seat back.

    Maybe because the XDm grip handle is long I am running into this problem. Kind of a pain in the butt sometimes.

    What do you do?

    Thanks.

    If you are using the paddle, take the holster off, put it on the seat.
    Mount a holster in your vehicle to use while driving.

    I carry same as I always do... holstered on the hip.
    At first, carrying in a car was uncomfortable. It probably still is, but I've just gotten used to it.

    Mine digs into me as well. I usually leave it holstered but for longer rides I'll unholster and tuck it under my leg

    That is one of the reasons I use a paddle holster; I remove the holster for long drives.

    I use an Uncle Mike's$5 holster and I don't have any trouble with sitting. Now for a long trips I will just place it in the slot under my radio.

    The way I carry is with two belts, one whith holster IWB the other to keep my britches up.
    Don't confuse me with the facts, I have my emotions!

    I guess that's the difference between no crime and "stopping" a crime in progress. I prefer no crime.

    My USPc in a CQC serpa (belt loop) fit perfectly between me and the seat belt, and doesn't dig into me at all. got i canted forward right around 3 o'clock.



    Just had a wild thought though, what would happen if you were in an accident and unconscious? What does EMS do when they pull you out with a gun on your hip? I guess just call a cop over to handle it.

    But you could come to and be very disoriented, and possibly defensive. I would think the police would handle the weapon, especially if the hospital you are taken to has a no weapons policy.

    You should use the forum search. This has been discussed at length.
