Bought a Center-Of-Mass car safe
This one. I bought the Large size, 9.5" x 6.5". My thinking is that I'll rarely use it, but.... if my car were to break down or something and it needed to be towed in, and I didn't want the gun in there but I had no opportunity to "ditch" the gun somewhere, it might come in handy.

Always good to have it in the car "just in case"--I use mine whenever I have to go to my kids' school. It's better than sticking it in the glove compartment or under the seat.

I like mine...it's hard to find in the car...if someone broke in...they'd have to really look...don't think it would be seen!

I have 2 of those. I use them when I travel by air. One for my G17. I lucked out when I got mine, both had the same key#, so only need to carry one set of keys. Great product.

Same here. IMO, the best airline case you can get.

I got 3 of them. One for each car, just in case, and a third to take with if I need to go somewhere I might need it (e.g. travel). I didn't want to remove and reinstall in the car in those cases as I would inevitably forget to put it back in the car and then need it unexpectedly.
As Arkhangel mentioned, if you get more than one, you can get all of them key-ed alike. Each comes with two keys, so you'd have lots of spares to put on each key chain.

That's the one I have. I carry my Glock 27 and P3AT in it when I fly.

I use mine every day because I can't carry at work. It comes in handy when going in a forbidden area during the day too.
I actually have two COM's that are keyed the same.

We have two of those. One in each vehicle.
I LOVE IT!
It's so great for easily stowing the gun when having to go somewhere you can't carry. I recommend these to anyone who's looking for a cheap way to securely stash their gun in a car or even around the house.

Allow me to join the "me too!" crowd. I treat mine like a Mean Mother In Law treats a wuss son-in-law. it is full of scratches, I bang that thing everyday against the base of the seat and it is still holding strong.

Yeah, those are one of those items on my "gotta get soon" list!
I plan on getting one for each of the front seats of the car. (one for wife's gun and one for mine)
I may end up getting 3 or 4. I want them all keyed alike which is why I've been putting it off a bit. Getting 3 or 4 is starting to get into some bucks.

The one Janq posted (Secure-It) looks identical to mine. It turns out the guy who runs center-of-mass happens to operate a few miles from me and I picked mine up in person. While chatting he said he didn't have them made, but rather found a source somewhere and just marketed them under the COM name. So it's possible that the Secure-It ones are the same exact product at a better price. But to give the guy a plug, he will do orders with key-ed alike boxes whereas that doesn't look like an option with the Secure-It through MidwayUsa.

I bought two at my old local gun shop. The sold them in singles or two packs. The two packs are keyed the same. I bought a two pack. I keep one in the jeep and the other will go in the g/f car.
