    I need help choosing a safe for my car.

    Hi. I'm about to get my Ohio ccw license and I'll need to purchase a safe to store my carry firearms in when I have to go into somewhere with carry restrictions. I'd like to find something relatively inexpensive that I can store my glock 29 and my px4 compact in and all I've been coming across so far are too small to carry both. Anybody have any experience with this situations? Any suggestions? Thank you for your time.

    Look at the gunvault NV300, about $29 on Amazon. I have two of them, one in each of my vehicles. Does the job for me.

    Stackon makes a nice safe that's under $50. I use it when I have to drive through Illinois.

    I have a Honda accord coupe. In Ohio you are required to keep your gun in a a locked compartment in your car. It isn't considered secure if its just in a locked car. I'll check into the safes you've suggested so far. Thank you.

    The nv300 is too small for both of my guns.

    I'm thinking about getting a stock on PC900-B. Does anyone have any experience with stackon biometric safes?

    I use the cheapo $26 key lock Secure It and the Gun Vault Nano single gun safes. I have them in each of my vehicles and one mounted in each of my two suit cases for air travel. I bought mine from Sprotsman Guide and Gander Mountain. They work for me.

    How much security do you want?

    Since you don't have a lot of room in the passenger cabin, have you considered something in the trunk that you could bolt down?
