Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Oh! you mean training them in the art of self defence? Mugging is against the law, training is not.

So, no carrying in either place there. So, how do you properly secure the weapon in the vehicle? I really don't think the box with the cable is secure as the cable can be cut. I considered buying or building a real metal box to house the weapon in while it is parked in the vehicle and it would be permanently affixed to the floorboard with bolt through the floor. Any other options? Any real box suggestions? Or, should I just leave the weapon at home?
You might consider a Titan Gun Vault. If the mounting plate could be securely mounted in your vehicle it's more secure than a cable, yet still gives you the ability to move it from vehicle to vehicle, or into your house. We have two, normally bedside, but we can also mount one in our camper.

Here's the Titan info.

A vault within my car would do me no good - I am employed at a nuclear power generating station, and company policy is NO firearms on company property (which is the only place to park) AND every car entering the plant's property is subject to a thorough search (at random). The good news is that my work site is guarded by the most vigilant, heavily-armed civilian force I've ever seen, and the power station is located in the boonies, so I have no concerns about personal safety while at or near work.

So what to do? Anyone got any other idea short of parking in the next zip code and walking the 2 miles to/from the plant every day? My current plan is simply to keep my firearm at home during the work week, which kind of sucks but is better than living in NY where I need a "reason" for my right to bear an arm.

That's why my wife took the class and is also getting her CCW permit. She is a stay-at-home mom, and can use my XD for her protection while at home during the day. I plan to augment our armory with a CCW weapon for her while she's out and about, probably a .38 hammerless snubnose revolver, which was recommended for her by our handgun class instructor.

I too cannot carry at work - and it's a major no-no to have a gun in your car in the parking lot. However, there have been times that I have forgotten (quite honestly) that there is one in the glove compartment.
