I haveread numerous posts about stowing in a safe bolted to the car. Descriptions and or pics would be helpful. Myself, right now I use a lockable plastic box with foam inside. I know itis hardly secure but I very rarely leave my gun in the car. I am looking for input on a more secure method.
If you don't have anything visible in your vehicle, that is of value to a criminal, they likely won't break into your car, unless they actually want the vehicle, in which case you can bet they will find the safe, and or gun.
I don't have much faith in too many vehicle safes. However if I bought one, I would lean towards the models that bolt underneath the seat.
If someone is breaking into your car, simply looking for a gun, and you have it in a safe bolted to the frame, that might be enough of a deterrent. However, if the car is being stolen, and drove somewhere, the safe is going to get opened one way or another, and the gun will be stolen.
The most inexpensive way I can think of is to get a locking cable, go through the gun and around the base of the seat.
