I looked at doing something in the console but felt it was too reachable by my kiddos. At present they don't even know it is under the dash. While minimal the blackhawk serpa provides some resistance (retention) to slow them down should they discover and want to pull it from the holster. If you don't know how to operate a serpa holster one would have to get down on the floor to look at the holster and sort it out.
It goes without saying that my kids are gun-trained. How to handle and do not touch.
My other concern with the console is how often it gets opened, thus exposing the weapon for the world to see. Same goes for the drivers door pocket (and I am not left handed).
