However, you may still be able to carry the gun if you follow a few basic tips. It`s important to note that even if you can, you`re still breaking concealment laws and could potentially face criminal prosecution if a law enforcement officer wants to write a ticket. In cases where you do not have a locker, we recommend using a locking cable for your firearm. These are usually available for free when you buy a gun in Nebraska. To safely disable the gun with a cable lock, you need to remove the magazine, empty the chamber and lock the slider. Then slide the cable into the recess of the magazine and out of the eject port before locking the cable. This makes the weapon unusable and safe to store. We also recommend placing the gun somewhere in the back of the vehicle with the magazine elsewhere to make sure the gun is not easy to use.
