    Has anyone done this? I'd like to bolt a small safe under the seat for a pistol. I have a good friend (he's actually our rangemaster) who always has at least one rifle in the back seat of his pickup. While I like his mindset, I wouldn't want my truck getting broken into and having my rife loose in the hands of a scumbag.

    So I guess I'm also looking for creative ideas to keep a rifle locked in my truck. Maybe I should just get one of those sig 556 pistols and find a way to secure it.

    I would rather have a well mounted Steel Safe than a hiding place. That is what SWAT does with their full auto weapons in their SUV's.

    Check with Santacruzgunlocks.com They make a simple, but effective long gun lock that is easily bolted in the vehicle. It will not be out of sight but it will be secure.

    That's pretty cool, but does it lock in some way?

    Well, here are some all-steel options. I know the second one isn't what you are looking for, but I posted it for others that may be looking for a larger, locked storage option.

    Console Vault

    truck vault I found out later these start at $1485.

    Mountable Safe

    Low-Profile Safe This is a Police supply company and has many in-car storage solutions. Check this site out for sure!

    Hideaway Safes

    There are others, but they are selling the same types of products as these companies and a lot of these are either the manufacturers or large distributors with good prices. I hope this gets you closer!

    How much room do you have under your seat? TekGreg mentioned quite a few options as well if you have the space. This one can be mounted horizontally as well and it's 3/16" steel with a Simplex lock. Your gun is holstered and it presents it to you once you enter the combination. With this style lock you don't need to see it, just feel the buttons and push the correct ones. Very easy, reliable a fast even in the dark.

    In my Explorer I don't have room under the seat so I have it mounted behind the console. I can access it quickly from the drivers seat.

    Very nice, perfect for under my seat. I also want to get the DU HA for a rifle or shotgun.
