I had a Center of Mass, worked well but I wanted something a little harder to break in to. I picked up this safe and bolted to the body of my truck.
It's easy to reach from the driver's seat. I can remove my weapon and secure it without overt motion.
I picked it up for about $40.00 on line.

Generally, if I know I'm going somewhere like the DMV or the courthouse, I just leave the gun home in the safe. These days though, almost everything can be done online from getting your tag and license, to paying tickets. There's rarely a reason to go into any of these buildings.
And occasionally, I will have to enter a school. Again, I know when this is planned, and leave the gun at home. A gun in a car is of no use to me, and is at a huge risk of getting stolen. Almost all criminals steal their guns from cars and from houses where they are unlocked or poorly locked.
Gun security is something I take very seriously.

Thanks for the nudge..I just picked up a couple of safes from Sportsmans Guide. One is for the truck- an ADG Sports thats 12-1/2"x12-3/4"x3-1/2" electric w/key override weighs 14-3/4lb. for $71. One for home is a Sentry thats the same lock arrangement and dbl. walled, 12-13/16"x 10-3/8"x5-5/8" that weighs 23lbs. It's on closeout for $26. Plus it's fireproof. I'll let you know if they're worth it when they show.
