    gun safes

    I'm planning on buying a in truck gun safe like the one sold by Magill's. Has any one ever lost a gun using one. For those who own one what do you think about some one being able to break into the box or cut the cable

    You can never really stop a well equiped thief however your smash and grab jobs will be stopped most of the time.

    The boxes (calling any one of them a safe is a joke) prevent a smash and grab. There's very little to stop a determined thief, especially if they have a little time. Any common bolt cutter with go through cables in about 5 seconds.

    That said, I have one under my front seat for those few occasions I need to temporarily disarm.

    Thank you for your opinions I guess anything that will slow the BG down will help.

    they have other options and are rated well by people I know who own them. I do not own one.

    The safest place for my gun is in my holster, but if you have to leave it in the car then anything that will slow down a theif is a good idea

    I have been considering a car mounted safe recently. Normally I carry it in regardless of any signs posted, but I will be regularly entering a secured federal building pretty often, so a safe is in the works.

    Bolt-down is the only way I will go.
