I use an electronic gun vault. It is bolted through the floor under my driver seat.
Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

I think we covered this a while back, BUT
I teach all my students to place a chain through the seat brackets of their vehicle with a paddle lock through the chain. If you place the lock through the trigger guard behind the trigger (this works with all TRUE double action revolvers and autos) the the gun is then anchored to the vehicle and the lock behind the trigger renderers it unfireable. Place something over it to conceal it from view and you are about 99% safe from theft of unauthorized use. Few, if any, BMV criminals carry the tools necessary to get it or will spend the time it would take to get it free. It takes just a few seconds but it is worth the peace of mind it will give you knowing your gun will not fall into the wrong hands and you will not have to get another one.
Hope this helped,

I don't have a carry permit, but in MS, you are legal to carry concealed in your vehicle without a permit. This leads to a LOT of people leaving their pistol in their car all the time. I bought a few small guboxes with hefty cables to lock them to the seat posts; i gave one to a nephew and one to his wife and one to my car to keep my pistol safer when i go in the store.

I am stongly considering getting a permit to carry all the time, maybe after New Years.
