How do you carry your concealed weapons in your trucks

My concealed pistol I carry on me but I have a little pistol safe on my nightstand that I thought about mounting somewhere in my truck to permanently keep my .45 in. It's one of those quick combination safes and thought about seeing if it'll fit in my center council. That way I don't have to worry about my son getting ahold of it since it'll be in a mounted safe and secure. I'd like to see your ideas and pics if you have any.

Why do you not carry it on you??? That's where you need it. Invest in the right carry holster and like me its on my hip unless im in bed sleeping, then its on the nightstand.
If you are referring to a storage place like if you were to be drinking alcohol and therefore would not have it on you then I will look for a link I have somewhere that shows how to convert your passenger airbag to a concealed compartment.

Should have been more clear. I do carry my 9mm on me all the time. I just want to keep my .45 in my truck. My wife carries too and here in Michigan spouses can carrier each others registered guns so if she's in my truck driving she would be fine and covered by keeping a gun in there all the time. Just looking for some safe/secure ways to keep it in there. We do have kids and safety is a must, even though my oldest who is 6 already knows gun safety and how to operate both his BB guns, his .22, 20 ga and single shot 12 ga lol!!

In for ideas too. I keep my Glock as a 'truck gun' and keep my 1911 on my person. I can't carry at work (work with kids) and I can't carry at school (university) so somewhere secure in the truck would be nice. I have been thinking about mounting a small vehicle safe behind the fold down center console/seat (regular cab split bench truck).

I have a "console vault" in my center console. It works great. They offer them with a key lock of a combo lock. I have the combo lock. Pretty sturdy, won't stop someone if they have 3ft pry bar and time but it will stop a smash and grab.

Bulldog safe under drivers eat, attached via the cable to the seat mount. I cant carry at work so I lock it in there, then get it out when I get back. Mine is keyed, I'm not a digit lock person, prefer keys.

21 bucks at Cabelas or Dicks, etc.

A gun is worthless if it's not on you. Keep it close. A locked gun in a pinch is worthless.

I have a 357 in a compartment under the back seat, and I'll usually put my 45 in the center console if I need a place to put it temporarily. I can't drive long distances with my 380 or my wallet in my back pocket (I must be getting old), so the 380 goes in the door/map pocket area, in the smaller section at the rear of the door.

I'd like to find a way to keep my AR-15 somewhere in the truck, but I go to Iowa often and it's too short to be legal there.

That said, I don't have kids (yet), so I have a lot less to worry about than some people. I'm interested what people do though, because I'm sure I'm going to have to worry about kids sooner or later.
