Default What .45 small handgun will fit behind the C7 nav screen?

I have a 2018 z06 and I wanted to buy a small .45 that would fit behind the infotainment screen. I was thinking of the springfield xds .45 but not sure if it will fit and I dont want to buy it then have it not go in there properly.

Do other car forums have so many threads about guns? Seems very weird to me.

Yea, was thinking the same. Seems like a good time in this country to give this kind of a discussion a little breather while the dust at least settles in Florida.

I like the feel of the xds in .45 ACP but just want to make sure it will fit in there

Not a good place to store a hand gun; it takes very little pressure to retract the screen....even in lock mode.

Nice! That's my concealed carry but I haven't tried to see if it fits in there. Nice to know that it does.

I have the Springfield XDS 45 and it fits. It is tight. I put the magazines on the bottom of the space and the pistol on top.

Sig p238 behind mine, if .380 is good enough for Bond, it's good enough for me

Love this car!

Your gun, like my guns, should be in your hand, holster, or a locked safe. Your freakin' radio is none of those.

People leaving their guns where others can get at them keeps giving responsible gun owners a bad name. Is it your fault if someone breaks into your car and steals an unsecured gun? Yes, it is.

Seems like a good time in this country to give this kind of a discussion a little breather while the dust at least settles in Florida.
It would be pretty much impossible to commit a massacre like Florida with a gun that fit behind the radio screen. That's a rate of fire and capacity issue, and anything that fits behind the screen would have neither. So I see them as pretty far removed from one another, but your point is taken.

People have been storing their guns in their cars for a long time. You're also driving around with 20+ gallons of gasoline. Better put that in a safe as well, if that got in the wrong hands...

My Springfield .45 Cal XDS fits. Put both of the sights flat against the front of the box and you should be fine. It doesn't fit when placed at any other angle in my C7 GS.

Anyone else notice where the "worriers" versus "warriors" reside. Seem Cali & the Northeast (most restrictive states) seem to have the most worries about what I do with my gun. By the way the screen IS LOCKED when in Valet mode. Not advocating one way or another on your choice to carry, already decided by an overwhelming majority of states. Again please don't flame anyone if you disagree, just answer (or not) the OP's question. We have a political/religion/flame on section here on our forum. Thank you for not jumping down my throat, just making an observation.

I know and I agree! That's one of the reasons we have literally millions of illegal firearms floating around out there. Also guns stolen out of night stands, that kind of nonsense.

In a world where a biometric gunvault runs $149 there's just no excuse for handguns in drawers.

Being responsible doesn't make me a "worrier" any more than owning a gun makes you some kind of "Warrior". But you do have a good point: the hidden compartment isn't the worst thing in the world because I think it remains locked if you smash the side window, so it's at least a 'little' secure. But not enough for my tastes.

I think this thread will go sideways shortly, so I'm out before the lock!

The gun the killed Kate Steinle? Stolen from the car of a BLM agent.

Guns are weak, beating someone with your fists is much better and you won’t deal with the law

Personally, I'm still looking for the forward-firing minigun deployment switch...

God made all men, Sam Colt made them equal. except in Gun Free Zones as we saw again this week.

And BTW - size does not matter, caliber does not matter. Carry whatever you are most comfortable and profecent with. Having that gun on your person is much better than having a 45 in your radio storage bin or your safe at home.
