Not a good idea, period. You never know who you're messing with, what if the person you were trying to scare has a firearm themselves?

Hypothetically speaking, If I were carrying a pistol with me in the car and some dude tried to "scare" me by wielding a firearm and pointing it at me, I'd take the time to practice a failure drill(two in the chest, one in the head or pelvic area for you non-military type) on said person. Definitely would not take my chances in today's society. It would stand in court too because I was acting in self defense in fear for my life.

Hell, if you wanna fuck with a tailgater or "fast and furious" racer, dial 911, give them your location and direction of travel and report the person as a drunk driver. Be sure to give them all the car details as well.

I've actually never been shooting up in Sac, I just moved here in august, but I'm down to go. I can bring my M1 at the very least, I'm working on acquiring a sage intl. stock with rail mounts so I can attach all sorts of neat technology to it.

If I had a weapon, why would I want to tell you where it is?

Wouldn't being hit in the head with an aluminum bat hurt in general? LOL.

I have a friend, who in highschool, carried a giant scottish claymore in his car. Completely impractical. haha

I've only got an AR-15 and a Remington 20 gauge from when I was younger. I don't keep either in the car, but I'm in the market for a .45 as a Christmas present to myself.

Because thugs know that if they are going to break into a house they better be certain no one is home; because they know 1 out of 4 chance the owner will have a gone and they will be shot.

Same with a car, there is always that risk that the car owner can shoot you. (less of a risk than house tho)
No kidding. This happened in the neighborhood across the street from me:

The way I see it, if someone forcibly enters my place of residence, they have just marked themselves for death, armed or not, they are a threat to my life and the lives of my family and I will dispose of them properly.

I have a Glock 30 SF. Packed with .45 high performance jacket hollow points filled with incendiary gelatin for defensive use. When the bullets hit the unfortunate victim, the gelatin becomes hotter than the sun. I also have Night sights and the clip draw so I can carry without a holster.





I own several businesses, and nowadays you can't be too safe. I shoot every week to make sure I am on point if I were to ever use it. I'm purchasing three more to keep in my car, my work car, and at home. I'm also getting a shotgun to keep in my closet and a 380 auto for the wifey.

LOL you have incendiary rounds for your .45 glock?! Do your enemies wear steel armor that you must defeat to kill them? Jesus man, that's a bit overkill, but totally awesome haha.

Incendiary rounds are fun, especially when your target is an old blown up tank and your weapon of choice is the MA DEUCE!

Don't mess with Texas. That's not a joke, people that break into Texas houses have a lot of balls lol. Everyone and their mom has a gun here, I know people that carry everywhere they go (Wal Mart, corner store, whatever). I just turned 21, and will almost for sure go get a concealed license.

I travel for my job, and I guess I watch too many movies, but I'll most likely keep a gun in my car.
