Steering Column Holster

I just ordered one of these for my truck and was wondering if anyone has one and what are their thoughts on it...

I'd check with the laws of your state! Some states like Nevada & Arizona allows you to have a firearm in the open. Some like California & Illinois you will be subject to arrest and possibly be shot, if stoped and loss of the weapon.
The other side I dont think I would want that scratching up my steering colum!
I have a holster like that mounted inside my center counsel.............

I just put my gun in the door pocket or center console for long trips. Shorter trips- under three hours- I just keep it on my hip.

Steve is correct, in Illinois concealed means concealed, it can't be out in the open where it can be seen like that

I am with you. Always on my hip unless it's a long trip. Like driving to Florida from Ohio. LOL

I have to admit, as a former LEO, if I walked up to a car and shined my flashlight inside, like they all do, I would be a little nervous when I discovered a firearm in that position. I think it would be better to have it concealed and hand an officer your permit along with your drivers license. Let him take it from there.
As far as dealing with bad guys, I would think if it was concealed you could still retrieve it if the need arises. Just my thoughts. But of course I don't live in St. Louis, you might be right.

Thanks for the feedback gentlemen.I had a conversation with a neighbor of mine who is with the Missouri State Patrol and he told me if he walked up to the door of my truck and seen that I would be looking at the end of his barrel until everything was straightened out.He wasn't sure if it was legal here in Mo, but in his definition of "concealed firearm"this was far from it.Cancelled the order and thanks again for all your replies.

To be totally honest,there were two of us on the computer the night I ordered the steering column holster..Myself,and Johnnie Walker was doing the thinking and ordering..Twelve inches of snow/-5 outside and a bottle of JW. Makes me wonder if I should invent a breathalyzer for my laptop....
