That is a really NICE car gun. I generally keep something under $700 in the car and carry the expensive one on me.

I have a XDs 45, eight loaded mags, and a grand cash in a lock box bolted down under the seat of my truck. I always carry but this is part of the back up plan. Just like the well stocked go bag behind the seat. The chances of being home if the **** is slim and none. The stuff will likely not be needed but if... it's with me.

Anyway, being that you can't take a gun in, and not wanting to leave it (especially my EDC, a G19 at that time) in the car/truck in any location, let alone that particular area, I did both. What's that, you ask? I bought a S&W Sigma for $250, brand new. 14 + one rd of 40 S&W, won out over a police trade in M&P 10, or similar. The reason that I went with the Sigma was that I could very easily take it apart and take the slide assembly and mag into the hospital and leave the frame locked up in the car/truck. If someone broke in, they may be stupid enough to take the frame. If not, all the better. But back then, it was all but impossible to get a complete slide assembly for that pistol, anywhere. If they did take it, I was planning on buying the same pistol in 9mm and I'd then have two guns in one. Once back at the car, the pistol could be reassembled in less than 30 seconds.
I didn't break any laws, and I didn't leave a weapon for someone to steal and possibly cause harm to someone else.
So, that was my answer to the same question.
Is a slide and magazine really no longer considered a firearm? I've heard of lesser pieces of one being construed as a firearm.

Neither a slide nor magazine are considered a firearm by the BATFE and are not required to be serialized. You can legally send a slide and magazine via USPS with no special documentation, not so with a serialized frame.

I have my carry pistol on me at night and weekends. 5 days a week when I go to work I have my 2022 in a Snap On tool bag with my phone,cigs and other necessities . It goes from the truck to my toolbox and back. It sits on the passenger seat and is easy to get to.

Hey once in awhile I have a "grease gun" in my vehicle.....actually I had one in my vehicle all weekend while in Kentucky......my M3 Grease Gun made in 1944. I was shooting it at Knob Creek over the weekend.

In all seriousness I have a MK25 and a Henry AR7 in my vehicle but I have a long commute to work each day and this is my "get me home" kit. As for my EDC-yep its my
P225A1 and I carry 3 extra mags in my day bag (full resupply of my EDC mags)

I agree 100 % with the above statement. However it is sad that if you get caught with a magazine with the capacity larger than 10 in states like New Jersey, California and others, you are in deep doo doo. It is only a part. A loose magazine will not cause any harm. I wonder when those states will ban your index finger: after all it could be used to activate a trigger. CUT THEM OFF !!!

Fake news picture or did it really happen in New Jersey ?

If I'm in the car - there are two guns in the car. One I am carrying, one carried by B.O.B. in the trunk. BOB carries a P226 in 357Sig and two boxes of ammo.

Depending on the circumstance of my being in the car - I may have one of three guns on my person: P229 357Sig, P239 357Sig or Taurus TCP.

Whichever pistol I'm carrying at the time. If I'm stopping someplace "restricted" (e.g., USPS, hospital) it's in a lockbox cabled to the underside of the seat frame.

This is a pretty personal question and each and every one of us need to carefully consider our needs. Not too long ago, during my travels through the marvelous metropolis known as Daytwa, one of the major intersections was submerged. I'm talking 30 feet of water, no vehicles were passing. This bottled up traffic very unexpectedly for me, coming into it totally unaware. It literally took me eight hours to get home that evening, normally an hour and a half. While stuck in this fiasco, I had an epiphany - What if this had been an incident of violence? Would my trusty G19 have served me adequately? Vehicles were stacked up bumper to bumper on the expressway, people milling in and out of cars to observe the spectacle, and the power in the area was out, as well. Complete darkness but for vehicle headlights and flashlights. Fortunately for all involved, it was peaceful, no violence at all, just a bunch of people wondering what had happened. The next morning, my 870 and M400E got a new assignment, trunk duty.

This is true for Massachusetts too. It's a felony to possess any magazine over 10 rounds that was manufactured after September 13, 1994....because they are wicked dangerous!
