    I've used a Center of Mass for a long time, but just moved to a Gun Vault Nano Vault 300. Very similar construction, but has a combination lock rather than requiring a key to access.

    - I wonder if the same manufacturer makes the CoM, GunVault Nano and the Secure-It (key or combo) from Cabela's. They look identical to me.

    I picked up a couple of car gun safes from here. Working out fine for my Glock 17 or Glock 19
    Based on the remarks in this thread, I ordered the CoM safe and just finished installing it in my car. Very ingenious attachment and very solid. Fits my SR9c perfectly. The tolerances around the lid are much tighter than I would have expected at this price point. You could not fit a screwdriver tip into the gap, so breaking this open would be possible, but not easy and would require some serious tools.

    For leaving the gun in the car while going to a school or such, this is a great option and very affordable. I'm very happy with this purchase.

    However, a word of warning.

    Check the screw that holds the latch hook at the bottom of the lock cylinder from time to time. Had one come loose and I could turn the key all I wanted and the box would not open. It was a bear to open.
    Also happen to me!! I love the COM boxes. I have also used it to check-in when flying
