^^^ That is nice! I have a nanovault like this one: . It is cabled to the seat support and is used for short-term storage of my car pistol. Going in the curbstore, lock it in the nano; going in the house, take it with me.

What you do not want to do is leave your gun in the car in freezing temps then take it inside where it is warm. The gun will begin to sweat and moisture will build up inside the gun, especially in the firring pin area. Then when you take it back out into freezing temps, the moisture will freeze and could jam up the guns operating system. I go with one posters suggestion of a small cooler. The temps will not vary up and down so quickly. Just like after a day hunting in cold/snow areas. You leave your gun outside to hunt the next day.

I keep mine in my car for similar reasons. Keep it clean and oiled in my console with two dry packs! We will see! At the first sign of rust, something else will be arranged! Good thing about Glocks, over half is made of plastic and rustproof-

I wouldn't worry about it getting to cold or hot. Any well maintaned gun should work well in any temperature. Unless your in Alaska and it 30 below. As far as rusting sounds like you have a humidity problem. I would just put it in a air title container.
