I'm going to add one to Rentacop's list. If at all possible set your alarm to passively arm instead of arming it with the key fob. If your car has RFID you may have a button on the door handle to lock and arm your car alarm. Use it instead of the key fob. If you can't do these two things shut off the horn beep or light flash that signals the entire area that you just armed your alarm.

I constructed a key code lock box in my truck just by my feet. If you get the key code wrong twice then all the doors shut, lock and the alarm goes off with a weak nerve gas that renders the perp unconscious in less than 10 seconds.

Just kidding. But would be good to have.

First thing, yes I leave one in my truck. It's old and it's my throw away gun....hell...it's not even registered to me, but that's a different story. Secondly, if you aren't aware enough to know that it's gone, then that's another issue. I always check to see if its there when I get in. If your vehicle was broken into, the key is not to have it so visible or easily accessible accept to you. Plus, I like having a backup gun if I'm in my truck.

Until fairly recently, my guns were worth more than my vehicles. I'm not about to add to the value of my vehicle by leaving a gun in it unless I have no other recourse.

This is a handgun section, so, pistol? Absolutely not. Even just overnight means you secure it! SG has a few inexpensive tethered cases I know work reasonably well because someone tried to steal a gun from my luggage at an airport once and failed to get into it with either prybar or a hammer.

A longun is a different thing as far as I'm concerned though...

I leave my pistol in my car, generally in a Nano safe secured to the car seat when I am at work, as I cannot carry there. Unfortunately the safe will not fit under the seat, and is in plain view in the car, which is not a good thing. I could move it to the trunk, but that might bring questions that are unwanted where I work.

When I go home, to the store, or most other places it comes out of the car and with me. I live in a good area, but we do have car break ins to deal with in the neighborhood from time to time. Probably kids, but kids can steal and sell a gun too.

Liberal BS saying responsible people lock up guns? It would seem to me, locking up guns, in your car, home, business, is conservative, not liberal. Might want to revisit that concept and chew on that for awhile.

I am with the NRA 100% on the concept of gun safes. Lock up guns when not in use. Store guns and ammo separately. Never let an irresponsible child or adult obtain access to your guns. Hiding a gun, is not locking it up.
