12 Ways of Use Gun Magnet to Hide a Gun in a Car
In this day and age, every gun owner in America needs to know how to hide a gun in a car (with or without a rare earth magnet gun mount). With the recent rise in crime and politicians talking about taking away our 2nd Amendment rights, it has become more crucial than ever to practice smart and practical firearm concealment.
In this guide, we will teach you 12 different ways to hide a gun in your car with a gun magnet. These vehicle firearm concealment methods can be incorporated into your everyday life, or just used for specific occasions. We will continue adding more techniques to this list as we find them, so you can circle back to this as a growing resource (similar to our post on how to hide a gun in your bedroom). Let’s get started!
1, The side of the radio: one of the most common ways to hide a gun in a car
This method isn’t the most inconspicuous since anyone approaching your vehicle from the driver’s seat will see your mounted gun. However, it allows you to position your gun very closely to your right hand for easy access during emergencies.
Installation tip: depending on the make of your car, you may have more circuitry on the side of your radio. To avoid poking holes in important things with screws, try using strong 3M tape to secure the gun magnet. If you’re worried about the gun magnet damaging your gun, read why it won’t here.
2, Beneath the steering wheel: advantages and disadvantages of hiding your gun between your legs
A close friend of mine first introduced me to this gun magnet installation. The idea is to have the gun magnet installed 8″ or so below the steering wheel of your car. With the gun tucked underneath the wheel and blocked by both knees, it’s hard to spot. However, it’s slightly uncomfortable as the gun juts out and impedes your legs from moving freely while driving.
Installation tip: since the area below the steering wheel generally has open space, you can screw in the gun magnet without hitting any important components.
3, The center console: the more versatile, James Bond method of hiding a gun in a car
This is the go-to place gun owners hide guns in their cars. It’s versatile, big, and doesn’t require installing a gun magnet. Gun magnet positioning can also vary since you can position the gun magnet/gun on the center console cover, side, and/or bottom. However, such an installation requires opening up the center console in order to access the gun. Thus, accessing your firearm in an emergency is more difficult.
Installation tip: if space is too limited to use screws, use 3M tape to secure the gun magnets.
4, The side of the center console: the side piece
In this scenario, you install the gun magnet on the driver’s side of the center console. It’s much easier to access during an emergency situation as it is positioned right next to your lap. However, drawing the gun will appear less organic to a perp. It is also exposed – anyone approaching from the driver’s side will see it.
Installation tip: get a low profile gun magnet for this installation, or install the gun magnet higher on the center console. Otherwise, the gun will rub uncomfortably against your leg.
5, Car door: don’t slam too hard
This gun magnet set up is a bit of a fan favorite as well. After installing the gun magnets on the driver’s side door, you’ll be able to attach and draw your firearm at a moment’s notice. However, this installation is on the left side of the driver. Thus, accessing the gun for a right-hander is not quite as easy.
Installation tip: when installing the gun magnet, ensure there is adequate space between the grip of the gun and your door handle. If installed too closely, drawing the gun from the gun magnet may be difficult as your hand may bump against the door handle.
6,Car door side panel: no gun magnets needed
This concealment method doesn’t require too much work. Since the side panel acts as a pocket, you have both the option of using a gun magnets or simply placing the firearm in the side panel.
Installation tip: depending on space available in the side panel, it may be difficult to screw the gun magnet in. Instead, use strong 3M tape to install it in the panel.
7, The trunk: Hollywood’s way to hide a gun in a car
This is a popular concealment method among many gun owners, but also an unwieldy option. You install the gun magnet on one of the sides of your car trunk and attach your firearm to the gun magnet. However, with your gun in the trunk of your car, reaching it in time during an emergency situation would be very difficult.
Installation tip: for extra security from thieves, lift up the carpeting in your trunk and hide your gun in the space below (if available).
8, Under Car Seats: where you look for loose change in a used car
Like the trunk method, accessing your firearm from this position during an emergency is not easy. However, this is a better longterm method to hide a gun in a car as the area below your car seat is hidden from the view of thieves peering into your vehicle.
Installation tip: installing a gun magnet beneath a car seat is a bit difficult, but not impossible. If possible, look for a solid metal piece to position the gun magnet on, and use 3M tape to mount it in place on the piece.
9, Seatback: jammed between the magazines
This doesn’t take a gun magnet at all to install. Just slip your gun into the backseat pocket of your car, and you’re good to go.
Installation tip: just drop in your firearm!
10, On the car roof: no, I don’t mean mounted on the roof like a .50 caliber machine gun
I know, I know. Those guns aren’t held up by gun magnets, and this isn’t the most inconspicuous way to hide a gun in a car. However, this is hands down my favorite method of vehicular firearm concealment. Since the roof of your car curves forward to meet the windshield, a low profile gun magnet installed close to the sun visor will be undetected from all outside angles.
In a scenario where a perp is approaching your car, you’d casually reach one hand upwards. As this is a very natural motion (adjusting the rearview mirror, sun visor, etc.), no one will think twice. However, your hand will then be positioned to draw the gun from the gun magnet hidden on the roof in a very organic motion. This allows you to smoothly draw the weapon and defend yourself (and your family) in times of need.
Installation tip: when positioning your gun on the gun magnets, point the barrel towards the direction of the window on your non-dominant hand’s side. For example, for right-handers, point the barrel towards the driver side window. This allows you to draw the gun quicker since the grip would be positioned on the right-hand side.
11, Underneath the car: for long-term emergency concealment
As you can tell from the picture, there is a lot of room beneath a car to hide a gun. With this gun magnet installation, you are able to conceal both handguns and larger firearms.
Installation tip: you probably don’t want to drill into the bottom of your car – totally understandable. You thus have two options: 1) use 3M tape to install the gun magnet, or 2) simply place the gun magnet on the slide/stock of your gun and put it against a magnetic portion on the bottom of the car. When needed, you would reach below the car and draw the gun, taking the gun magnet along with it.
12, Behind the radio: your personal vehicular gun safe
This one is a bonus – and no gun magnet is required! If you watch Hot Day Pleather Seats’ video on how to remove a car radio, you’ll see a small area below where the radio goes in at around 1:45. This is a perfect place to hide a smaller sized gun in your car for long term concealment – barring searches made by very determined thieves, this is the most secure way to hide a gun in a car.
Installation tip: on top of being a great place to hide a gun in a car, this is also a good place to store emergency cash, credit cards, etc.
