Consider a little .380, I carry a Walther PPK/S in my pocket nearly every day. The only time I donít carry it is when Iím carrying open. If you want something a bit more powerful consider the Rohrbaugh 9mm.
For a slightly less costly option, check out the Keltec P3AT (.380) or PF9 (9mm)...both weigh less than a pound full loaded and don't cost as much as a Walther or Rorbaugh.

Pigs are not safety experts. Most of them are safety hazards.
At the Appalachian law school, students went to their vehicles grabbed their guns and then stopped a school shooter.
While the Texas Tower shooter was picking off students, bystanders got their longguns from their vehicles and kept him pinned down while cops moved in to his position.
A school principal also ran to his car, parked several blocks away from school, got his gun and stopped a high school shooter.
Of course, nothing is as good as carrying a gun in the pocket.
I admire any American who carry's his M16, AR15, or AK in his trunk or pu truck (it can deter a rogue govt).
The Texas Tower stories about the armed citiizens saving the day are "urban legend" Everybody ran for cover until the cops got there.

I don't understand your question then.
If as you say such, then why the concern about placing it in the trunk?
Just carry the thing.
One question: How is it that you're able to carry in all 50?
Like I explained before, because of my body type, carrying a gun in or on my belt or in my pocket makes my pants fall down. I can tighten my belt for short amounts of time, but if I keep in tight all the time, I get what the doctor calls "pressure" sores on my gut. Pressure sores can be very painful, especially when the pustules get infected with ingrown hairs

I keep it well-oiled with WD-40 and inside of a sock

That was my first thought. Anytime I see someone wearing one I think they're a poofter.
Can't assume that someone who wears a fanny pack is a homosexual. There is a home for retarded adults in my neighborhood and many of them sport fanny packs with their track suits.

I donate used clothes and household items to the home. I brought them a used clock radio just yesterday. The alarm is broken, but the radio still works

The gun lock was bought after the fact, and I can't seem to find contact info for the manufacturer. I think I am going to get a sturdy screwdriver and punch it out with a hammer

Even so, if carrying concealed is uncomfortable for you, why not carry openly?

Iím rather fond of my Walther. I also have a little Colt Mustang, I just prefer the Walther.

For me I donít care about cost when buying a gun. I demand quality though. Thereís nothing wrong with Keltec, I just prefer other options.

A fanny pack? Maybe a good idea but not very fashionable...

Because handguns are regulated more so than long guns, it is better to carry a shotgun in the trunk.
For example, you can't stay overnight in Chicago if you have a handgun. D.C. also has very rigid regulations for handguns.
I would not advise keeping an expensive shotgun in the trunk ($1500+).

Because of gun laws it may be the only option. A shotgun almost always gets stored in a locked container (or locked in a rack). An exposed longgun could attract thieves too (very stupid.)

You are completely wrong and probably you don't own any guns. I spent 6 long years in the Marine Corps on amphibious tractors (armored personnel carriers). I stored all kinds of weapon on the tractor. We spend weeks at sea (in a saltwater environment). I trained in the Carribbean sea (and North Carolina) where high humid temperatures are common. A car trunk is nearly a perfect place to keep a gun stored. A gun should be stored in a gun case anyway, and barrels must be lightly lubed regardless of where the gun is.

Again you put your foot in your mouth and prove you don't know what you're talking about.

I learned how to care for firearms in the Marine Corps. Guns are stored in the armory. After I cleaned mine I would leave a heavy coating of grease on them on the inside, and a light coating on the outside (and then leave them in the armory).

Put the fking gun in a pouch or put it between rolls of fat !!

If you don't use a belt then you must use a fking fannypak !

I never carry a gun in public but I've made several gun pouches. A pouch is the best way to carry except maybe the pocket holster.

And, you should have a small steel safe in your trunk for a handgun (if you don't bring a longgun.)

Guns are prohibited in so many places you must have a lockable container in the vehicle.

Hmmmm, don't get your panties in a bunch because fannypacks are unfashionable and you still wear one.

I am going to tell you how you can carry your weapon anywhere in the USA in your car loaded without being arrested. Put it in the glove box. You do not want anything other than the gun in there. Keep your license, registration and proof of insurance, over the sun-visor If you are stopped in a state like Illinois, do not answer the standard question regarding whether you have any weapons in the vehicle. Do not lie. Just refuse to answer as is your fifth amendment right. Do not agree to allow the officer to search, take a quick look or any other variation of a vehicle search. That is your fourth amendment right. He may ask you to exit your vehicle . Comply with his request. He is allowed to search you and the immediate area around you that is within your immediate reach for weapons but he can not go into your closed glove box without permission or probable cause. If you are going to travel across county and want to take a weapon, that is how you can do it.

Anybody who caries a fanny pack in my neighborhood would get into about three fights a week.
Very rarely would I carry it in that contraption. It is only good if you are wearing PT gear. It is too slow on the draw and it looks too obvious and blows your cover.
