    Does anyone ever leave their gun in their car? Not overnight but if you dont want to carry where you are or if you are not allowed to etc... Where do you stash it? For some reason I cant bring myself to leave it in my car, I am too afraid of a break in or the FL heat doing something bad to the rounds. :o

    It's legal her in kalifornistan to as long as you have it locked in the trunk. I would just leave it hidden in there.

    Would it actually damage the rounds?

    I'm not sure how good it would be to leave rounds in vehicle in hot weather I'de be scared they might cook off or something but probably needs more heat then it would get upto even in summer, I forgot about a couple AK mags in my old car that had a leaky trunk they were in there from about oct/nov till may they'de obviously gotten wet and had some rust on them but they all went boom.

    I've left my gun in the glovebox a few times. The way my ac works though it usually didn't get too hot in there, even with the car off. I'll have to shoot some of my old ammo this weekend and see how it performs.

    Rounds will absolutely never cook off in a car unless the car is on fire. We're talking like 350F and up. Firing hot rounds could cause increased chamber pressure, and the powder will decompose faster at higher temperatures, but these aren't practical concerns. Don't use a 200F magazine thats been in your car for 12 years and you'll be fine.

    Here would be an excellent way to store a gun in your car

    no.


    It is not necessary to have a license or permit to carry a loaded firearm in a private vehicle, so long as the gun is "securely encased". Florida law defines a weapon as being securely encased if the firearm is in a glove compartment, whether or not locked, in a snapped holster (not worn on your body!), in a zippered gun case or in a box or other container that requires a lid or cover to be lifted or opened in order to gain access to the firearm. These restrictions do not apply to any person who holds a valid Florida Concealed Weapon License or a reciprocal state license/permit.

    maybe you should specify that. there are plenty of center consoles without lids. details are where things go wrong in the legal world.

    I leave my cz 52 in my grand cherokee's center console all the time. It's only $160, and cheaper than other equipment i have in the car. it's my standby/survival/inner city gun that i keep in there all the time, and don't worry about. The center console doesn't lock but i'm thinking of making it able to lock some how, or some hidden latch. the only thing is, I don't want to have to unlock it every time i get in the vehicle. and if it's not readily available, then what's the point.
