    Lock box for the vehicle

    I've been looking at different ways to secure my carry piece in a vehicle for those times when it must be left behind.
    I checked out the "Secure-it" brand, local gunshop got some in but they seemed kind of flimsy for the price.
    At Wal-Mart yesterday I found a Honeywell lock box, fire resistant (wouldn't count on that much though) for $14. It's pretty sturdy, two layers of steel with some fireproofing in between.
    I drilled holes through two sides and ran a Kryptonite bicycle cable through it which will wrap around the seat support on my F150 then just slide the box under the seat.
    It won't stop a determined thief but I think it will deter a snatch and run.



    I'm a child of the 60's, but I got over it.

    I sure that would work just fine... its a fine example of the K.I.S.S theory.

    It also looks easy enough to move it to another vehicle if need be.

    That's cool. That is like the one I use, the normal popular gun lock box if forget the name but your's look's a bit stronger. How is the strength of the corners that the cable is through? I might give that a shot as well, the price is right on it for sure.

    Way to be creative and thrifty! I think I paid $40.00 for mine and it is a tight fit with a commander length and not real strong but will prevent a snatch attempt easy enough.

    Cabelas have some that go inside the center console, which look pretty solid, but I dont know if they are deep enough to carry a full size weapon like you (and I for that matter) carry. I think yours could work well though, put it under a seat and attach it to the seat harware or something like that. Here is a link and photo of the ones sold at Cabelas:

    Update: It won't fit under the front seat of an '01 F150. Fits under the back seat OK though.

    Thanks Sisco. This looks like a winner .I have an 06 F150 And did not want to drill any holes to mount a box. Tom

    I bought something like that for $30, which works fine. But I wish I had thought of something like you did.

    I did something similar to a LIFEJACKET pistol case. Just drilled two holes, threaded a cable thru it, attached a lock and secured it under the front seat of my locked car. A car thief with the right tools and plenty of time can still get my gun, but it will take some time and effort. I also took plenty of pictures of the rig for proof. If my gun is stolen, I can show that I took "reasonable" measures to secure it.
