Do any of you put something over your seat to prevent your firearm from wearing a hole or scratching the leather? I just sold an F250 that had gotten a hole worn in the leather due to my handgun.

Picking up a Shelby GT500. Not going to f-up the leather on this thing.

Any suggestions? Needs to look good too.

My patrol car used to have a similar issue. My only suggestion would be to try a cross draw holster. Some folks feel it offers better access when seated in a vehicle and clears a seat belt better than a strong side holster. At one point there were several custom makers who made a specialty holster for driving. I have not shopped for one in quite a while so I don't know if they are still offered. I once tried a holster system that attached to the steering column under the steering wheel. It worked but I kept getting out of the car and forgetting my gun!
As for seat covers, I have tried that but would guess they would show wear fairly quickly too.

My C7 Z06 has serious seat bolsters. I have carried forward of the hip for many years to avoid the issue.

Picking it up tomorrow and I'm going to try appendix carry. I never had a problem while wearing a gun belt since the cuff case and other items on the back helped prevent the butt of the gun from digging into the seat.

Will try a few different options. Thanks for the responses.

Shoulder holster is perfect for driving.

I have a separate holster attached to my car. While I dislike having to transfer my gun getting in/out of the car it does help a) comfort, b) preserve my seat, c) and make accessing my gun while seated 100x easier.

I generally pocket carry or use a vest for either my J-frame or Sig 938 as appropriate.

Wear a coat. I have for years. there might be a bit of wear on the lining, but linings can easily be replaced.

Keep a clip on cross draw in the truck & just switch out as you get in & out.

A shoulder holster, or off-body are the only things I have found to prevent seat back wear.

I bought heavy-duty seat covers (camo) for my pickup. I carry daily back & forth to work and the seat covers show little wear! It's been 8 years now!
