Every now and then, I have to disarm. I try to avoid it, but sometimes you have to go to “gun-free” zones to get stuff done.
Like getting new license plates. Or meeting friends for dinner at a restaurant I’ve never been to and seeing the
please rob my restaurant gunbuster sign.
Because, you know, it’s safer to leave it in a box with tempered glass sides than on my person.
Anyway, several years ago I bought a car safe thingy similar to this one from GunVault for those situations where, despite my efforts at avoidance, I have to leave the gun in the car.
For a while, I would transfer it from my jeep to my wife’s car when we would go on trips and stuff. Then, I just started leaving it in her car full time. So I bought another one, only this time it had a combination lock instead of a key lock.
In any event, they’re pretty cheap. They secure to the car via aircraft cable–I loop the cable around the front passenger seat bracket. I just found out that they’re also TSA approved for transporting firearms in checked baggage. That’s definitely an added bonus.
I highly recommend them.
