    Metal Case For A Gun In A Car

    Is there a specific purpose built gun case made to be installed under the seat, or some other out-of-sight spot in the passenger compartment.
    I want to be able to lock my gun in my car, and have the case bolted to the seat frame, or elsewhere.

    So far I have found high end electronic release combo cases and bulky $30 large cases. Am trying to find a slim , cheaper than $80 case.

    Rocky,Yes, the container needs to be thin.
    My thought is that it should mount to the seat frame, and have the ability to slide out on rails, kind of like a drawer.
    It still has to be secure to the vehicle, plus it must have the ability to be locked.
    I have a console, but I doubt there is enough room in that for a container.

    take a look at this one. I saw it at a gun show and am going to purchase one when I finish paying for the holidays. The steel is 10ga, heavier than most. It uses your own lock. Small company, the guy that makes them, sells them.

    Springer, that is a very nice little safe.Thanks.
    That is closer to what I\'m thinking of.
    I doubt I would get exactly what I want, unless I make it.

    Have yet to find a small side opening safe yet. Found em with big hinged door , but they won't fit / open under a seat or similar small space.

    Rocky before the change over to this new forum, we did a brief discussion on this. Here is the link to that discussion.

    I have two of these keyed the same so I can keep one in each of the two vehicles I drive. Also, I can move them as needed...say to my travel trailer.

    JWB, that's the best yet. I like it.
    American Rifleman just had a whole story on this very subject. I got that in the mail just yesterday. one I looked at was www.truckvault.com

    Now, would this little box cable tied to my seat frame in my truck protect me from the law? If I were to have my vehicle stolen?

    thanks for the link. Don't think those will work. Am looking for a full size auto pistol box, but not much more. Looking to install under the seat or on trans tunnel of a 96 GMC Sierra

    I have two keyed the same and bought extra cables so I can move the boxes between vehicles and if needed, have both in the vehicle. I can put a glock 23 with extra mag or my g27 with extra mag in one with no problem.

    Anything can be ripped from a vehicle if the thief has proper tools, but for a snatch and grab, I doubt if a thief could remove it from a vehicle easily. Besides, with the cable, they are easily kept out of sight and would not attract interest of a safe bolted to the floor of a truck. Also, since they are so mobile, I can take them with me in my computer case if I see reason. Since both are keyed the same, it makes it very convient to lock the guns up and keep them kid safe in the house.

    I also avoid identification on my vehicles indicating that I might have weapons within...other than my bowhunting decals ;o)

    JWB, I did not get my case in yet.
    Can it be mounted to the floor of a car? Is the cable the only way to attach the box to a vehicle?
    I was hoping that it has bolt holes, and I can somehow bolt it under the console somhow. I would like it out of sight, and more secure than just relying on that cable.
