I lock mine in the console.
This is a discussion on Securing when can't carry. within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I lock mine in the console....
I use a COM safe...it works well. A determined well prepared thief will most likely still get to it, but it will keep a smash and grab thief from getting to it. Also, it's portable (you can move it to a different car easily) and isn't obvious to the public as to what's in it. There are other options available...

In glove box or center console locked. Also, in my opinion, if anyone can see the safe they might want the safe and thus break into your car.
I do not see any real specs on the COM gun safes. What are they made of, total dimensions, etc?
If I go onto Skyline Drive where cc is still illegal, and I lock my rig under the driver's seat, am I covered?

I can't fit a single gun safe under the seat in my small pickup truck, so I put the pistol under the seat, and leave a very large dog to keep the gremlins away. He has a definate attitude about strange people messing with his truck!

We can carry in Florida vehicle as most of you know as long as it is in a "closed" container... zipped leather case works for me. Fits in the driver door pocket almost completely out of site. Easy to retrieve if needed while driving if not carrying. If it is noticed (never had a car break in other than a total theft in Cleveland Ohio 30 Years ago) it looks like a CD case as you only see the edge of it. Insured if stolen.
