    Definitely wouldn't keep a gun in there. ...Maybe if it was bolted down in a locked steel case.

    A GunVault Nano is under $25 and offers reasonable protection for your firearm when you can't carry into "no-gun" places.

    As has been said GunVault, tethered to the seat which is bolted down. It'll take moire time and hopefully someone notices, but again this is only for when I am somewhere I can't carry. And so far, never over or at night.

    I also supposed he could have kept it in the car unloaded (in addition to locking it up)

I never leave anything in my car from that date on. A lesson learned the hard way.
    This is why I don't even lock my car. The only thing more valuable than the window is the car itself and its insured.

    One of main reasons why i dont support any public establishment with prohibit gun signs.... You have a law abiding citizin getting shot or killed by there wn gun. Remember bg dont obey laws be careful and be safe people, stay one step ahead always, just saying... Eddie.

    The price is certainly reasonable, but I'm not sold on the security part. Even though a pair of dykes will cut right through that cable(with a good two hand squeeze) this guy said his screwdriver was probably quicker. Might not be a good choice if you plan to leave your gun in your car for extended periods of time like not being able to carry at work. Will only prevent the most basic smash-n-grab and if I was going into vehicles looking for guns, I think I would have a couple small tools with me. Especially knowing how many people use these little lock boxes.
