car mount holster

Postby hec » Fri Sep 08, 2017 8:44 pm

I am new to the forum and a CHL holder. Anyone know if it’s against the law to attach a holster or magnet to hold a gun in your car or truck? Is it against Ohio law to have the weapon mounted this way? Must it be holstered on me? I’ve seen many people who attach holsters in their cars under the dash in between seats, under the steering column. I’ve been searching for a definite answer and can find none.
Thanks,
hec

There is no law in Ohio restricting how you can carry in your vehicle. There used to be a law requiring the gun to be holstered on your person or unloaded and properly stored, but no longer. With your license you can carry how you like, including a holster mounted to the vehicle. Personally, I'd stay away from the magnet type for vehicular carry since I have doubts it would hold the handgun securely in a crash but otherwise knock yourself out.

Thanks,
It seems that the laws can be really confusing. I have the go-magnet mounted in my truck. Works for me. Very powerful. Easy to find and grip if you need it fast.
Thanks for the reply.

It's dumb and dangerous.
Never settle for the ordinary.

Rights cease to exist when restrictions are put on them.

Be sure you have something that protects the trigger.
