Default Leaving gun in car

Work at a hospital and have to leave the gun in car for 10 hours. Is there any type of insulated box or something I could try to keep it from rusting or literally freezing?

get a gun vault that you can physically mount to your vehicle. keep your pistol oiled. if you live in a really high humidity environment, then throw a couple of those dessicant packages in the gun vault with the pistol. if the temperature is close to freezing, rust is not an issue. don't worry, the pistol won't freeze.

Google is your friend! check MidwayUSA. i am sure they have something. check out the biometric gun safes. many of them have provisions for mounting them to something stationary.

I would be cautious about using one that requires electronics if the weather is that cold. Condensation might also cause problems with biometrics. Also look at the ones available that use a mechanical pushbutton lock as it will be reliable in all conditions and usually last a lifetime. Fort Knox, V-line and FAS1 Safe are a few that use this lock.

+1 I agree, I live in Ohio and use a Bulldog gun vault that uses a key. No electronics.
