Today on The Arms Room we rounded out 2016 by talking about the use of weapons from the vehicle and what some of the necessary supplies are that you should have in said vehicle. Some good options for carry while in a vehicle may seem taboo to some people but appendix carry and even cross draw are viable options. It is also important to keep in mind where you store your weapons if they are staying in the vehicle and what can happen to them in the event of an accident or wreck. Also keep in mind that just because you lock your car doors doesn’t mean your weapon is secured, you may want to take a look at some type of vehicle weapon safe for storage. Its been a good year for The Arms Room thank you to all our listeners and be sure to stick with us into 2017. Join us for our first show of the New Year as we talk about our New Years resolution to get everyone a dam medical kit!
