    Lock box for car

    Today I will be adding my gun to my permit and starting to carry (para warthog). Weapons are prohibited from my work and I am looking to buy some sort of lock box that can be secured in the vehicle. I have looked online and I have also done a search on this site. I have found some information but a lot of it is older and I was hoping to find an option that has been succesful for folks since then.

    Thank you

    yep. that's the one I'm planning to use for my truck, and I might buy one for my motorcycle too. I'm a little concerned about the quality of their locks, but I really haven't found any others to choose from.

    I have the same type of lock box as the center of mass safe.
    I purchased it locally for about $25.00. It works well and just happens to fit nicely between the bottom of my driver's seat and the seat adjustment bar. You can look under the seat and never see it.
    I would also suggest the large size.

    That's the one I got. Actually, two - one for each car. Cabela sells it under the "Secure-It" brand name. I only saw the medium size there, for $29.99.

    The packaging states "TSA Approved", though I haven't flown with one yet. I have used it inside a roller suitcase though, with the cable secured to the telescoping handle frame inside the bag.

    I also use this case under the Secure-It name. The best price I could find was from Cheaperthandirt. I ordered two and they came keyed alike which was a pleasant surprise definitely get the large one no matter what gun you are going to conceal.

    It is probably pretty easy to pick too.
    It is not the Bill of Privileges. It is not the Bill of Permits. It is the Bill of Rights.

    People should not be afraid of the government; the government should be afraid of the people.

    X2... the small is simply too small.

    Yes, get the large...
    I have the CM safe for my car...the idea is to place the safe where it is hard to find. This safe just slows 'em down, obviously it is better than storing a gun in the glove box. If you were in my car, you'd be hard pressed to quickly find my safe...up under a seat (not easily seen), or inside a tail light compartmnet, again, not easily found...I never leave a gun in a car for very long.

    I also have the same in my truck, works great if you have to leave the gun in the truck. It also works well for airline travel, fits well in any suitcase.

    The "COM" storage cases are good (and no they aren't all keyed alike) and yes, as everyone else stated, get the Large......

    Another option is from Galls, it cost's more but it's pretty cool:
    Electric car safe


    Gives you quick access with a key option as well
