Hello everyone I'm trying to find a safe that I can bolt under my seat in my truck for when I have to leave in the truck.
Any good sites that would have something like that?

I recommend Gun Vault's Nano Vault 300. It comes with a security cable to attach to the seat frame of your truck but it also has holes on the bottom from where you can bolt it to the floor. It holds guns with a barrel up to 4" long and a spare magazine, so if you have a larger gun like a 1911 or an M9 then you should get a bigger model. This model is very cheap ($39.95) because it comes with a numeric keypad locking version, but they have more expensive ones with biometric locking systems. I have stored on occasions an H&K USP Compact .40 S&W with a spare mag and a Walther P99 9mm with a spare mag (obviously not together!) and have had no problem with it. With a slightly larger gun, I don't think that the safe would close so make sure you check the dimensions of your gun and compare it with the safe.

I have an under the seat vault from Center of Mass http://www.center-of-mass.com/ that uses a cable. It has predrilled holes for bolting it down. They have a wide variety of vehicle safes available.

A right not exercised will eventually be taken away!
I have a center of mass safe also. I use the cable rather than bolting it down. I imagine it would be difficult to access if bolted under the seat - the cable lets you pull it out so you can easily access the contents. I don't recall the price, but I remember shipping was very fast w/ COM.
I have a center of mass safe for each of my vehicles, that way I don't have to keep swapping it out and getting somewhere without it.

There are always too many Democratic, Republican and never enough U.S. congressmen.
I use a Center Of Mass safe too,. I went with the combination lock.
Works great. No complaints.
Center of Mass in my vehicles, the cable is a little stiff to hook up but after a couple of tries you get the trick of it.
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
Just now looking into the COM safes, anybody have any concerns with dirt and grit and cookie crumbs and such getting into the locks? Can't decide between combo or key locks.
Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

Check out Harbor Freight, little more expensive than some of the one mentioned above but looks like it may be worth the extra $$$.

I use the key lock version of the Gun Vault. It works very well. I can't recommend the combo lock version - opening the safe at night without turning on the car light is next to impossible.
Thanks for all the info I went a picked up a Nano Vault 300 this weekend.
