I live in Ohio where there are tons of CPZ (Criminal Protection Zones) where I can't take my pistol. That means disarming all the time.
Since I carry a Glock 30 Condition 1, I'd like to do as little "gun handling" as possible when removing the pistol. I like to carry in a Comp-tac infidel, with which I can easily remove the whole pistol + holster combo from my belt.
Last week I picked up a slim keyed in car "gun safe" from Gander mountain. Nice little box (the very standard kind) that comes with a little steel cord for securing it to a seat. Problem is, my G30 does NOT fit in there when its in it's Comp-tac Infidel holster. The added width of the holster just makes it impossible to close the box (even If I remove the foam).
Does anyone have any recommendations for an in-car safe (not the kind I need to build into the console) that I can use with my holster?

you don't have to remove the holster just the firearm. and if in a firearm free zone then you need to store it unloaded and separate from ammo. Where is the question.

With a glock pistol my greatest risk of ND comes when reholstering... so I choose to reduce that risk as much as possible. I've read every word in the Attorney General oh Ohio's CCW book and I haven't found any requirement for a CCW holder to unload the pistol when locking it up. In fact a locked box is one of the enumerated "allowed" methods of firearms transport.
The most ND/ADs happen when you are loading/unloading the gun itself. I take my G19 out of my holster whenever I have to disarm(not very often in AZ) and put it in my gun safe under my seat and my holster goes in my glove box.
Sure, that makes sense. I'm super careful when loading/unloading. I have a special "Safe direction" in my house... and I'm super anal about all the safety rules. I just worry about re-holstering because I've seen some cases of Cops having ND when an article of clothing gets caught in the holster. If I do like you and unholster and reholster off-body, that alleviates many of my concerns, good idea.
While the GunVault mini looks like an attractive option, I just don't know how/where to hide it in my car.
When you lock up your G19, do you unload it?
No I don't unload it.The only time I unload it is when I am at the shooting range or cleaning it.
I have a "NanoVault" from Gunvault but it only holds my pistol (HK USP Compact or Walther P99) with a mag and a spare mag but it won't fit with the holster. Therefore, you should get the Microvault which is bigger and I think that it comes with the security cable that you can attach to your car seat frame.
This is what I use (NanoVault 300 by Gunvault - $30.00 in Amazon)
