    Long story, but I have four of these all keyed the same. Great company, by the way.
    Yep! What R&G says is the way to go.

    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.

    If they just prowl the car and happen to have a set of bolt cutters with them, which many do, ditto. They can break into the strong box later, in privacy.
    i agree with you on this one! and in the event a bg gets your handgun when it's not in your control, whatever that idiot might do with it is on you too.

    I hope you are kidding. Not only is it "locked" in a vinyl bag, it looks like a bank deposit and isn't attached to the car in any way! A thief would never take that! Hahahaha omg..

    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.
    Meanwhile, take a look at Discount Hunting Gear, Discount Hunting Boots, Discount Shoes, Discount Ammunition, Discount Ammo, Discount Boots, Military Surplus, Outdoor Gear at Sportsman's Guide they have a few more

    I'll either bolt or cable lock the one in the truck underneath the rear seat, it's pre drilled
