How to lock handgun in car safely?
Okay, thanks to you all I now have the law down for how Ohio works. Looks like it's very easy for a Kentucky boy to carry there. You guys have heard of Kentucky right? You know... the promised land. ha! Just had to fit that in there somehow. My question is I need some suggestions on what you all do when you leave the house carrying but sometime during the day you have to go to a place that doesn't allow you to carry (ex. run in the courthouse or something). My glove box doesn't even lock. Have a 2007 Ford Focus and that must have been a high dollar option. ha! I've heard of people that use some type of lockable boxes that slide under the seat and then use a cable to lock them down. Just looking for something simple, tough, and of course doesn't cost $150.00. Trying to at least lock it up in case there were a break in. Any suggestions? What do you use? Thanks again for the help!!!
Cabela's sells a small locking box for handguns....
I have one of these steel locking boxes with attached steel cable, sold by Cabela's for $30:
Secure It handgun lock box
It isn't perfect, but it would sure slow a thief down unless he had a cable cutter with him. It can also be used to store a gun in your suitcase for air travel.
