    where do you hide your firearm when you have to leave it in your vehicle (i.e. when going to a federal building, school)? i noticed that some folks usually have a portable vault under the seat buy i think that's one of the places a burglar will check first. thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    I have a small safe with electronic lock bolted to the floorboard right behind the center console. Strong enough to keep someone out of it for longer than any criminal will care to spend breaking into a truck,and where it's bolted down there's no good way to pry it up,if that's even possible with the hardware I used.

    If I know that I am going into those places I dont bring my firearm with me. Its too costly if I leave it my car only to have some scum bag break into it and steal it. I just stop back at my house to get if I need to go out again.

    Yep, thing to do is post your gun security and where you keep it on the World Wide Web. By doing this you may now be qualified to work for the CIA.;)

    Do you know my name? My state of residence? The city I live in? Where I work? The street I live on? The places I frequent? What kind of truck I drive?

    Can you answer any of those questions with a yes? Because if you can't answer yes to most of them,then it doesn't make a lick of difference that a guy on the internet named Jstrong secures his gun in a bolted down pistol safe in his truck when its not on him.

    Yes you can be identified on the web. It happens every day. My point however is why is it important to ask or tell anyone where your choice of concealed carry is?
    Concealed carry permits are just that. It is a very personal thing or supposed to be. Please fell free to expose your choice of carry.:)

    I use an electronic gun vault. It is bolted through the floor under my driver seat.

    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,
    Jim:)

    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.
