Gun storage in Jeep

I am wondering if anyone has any experience with the Smith & Wesson Quickdraw safe? I searched for this specifically but didnt find anything. I like this due to the portability and its size, my concern is the fact that it isnt hidden like the other under seat storage boxes...

Thoughts on this thing?

No personal experience but I'm all for secure storage, but I'm also all for keeping the weapon on your body if in a CCW state.

I like that. But I use the Tuffy secure underseat storage when I don't want to carry Mr. Glock on me. Out of sight is the best deterrent to theft.

it's neat.... but I agree with ^^^^

I keep mine on me, or I lock it in the glove box or an under seat box.

If you have a 2011+, I'd suggest the console insert from Tuffy. Gives you a secure compartment that you can easily access while driving and is still out of sight.

Good point, people steal safes for a reason.

Thanks for all the opinions on this unit...The reason for another place is some of the people I travel with, carrying makes some of my family nervous and Im just looking for an alternative.

I would never bolt something like this to plastic. While anything in a car can be stolen I would make it very very tough to take.

Sam, that is a very nice piece!!

I have one and I lock my LCP in there when I'm at work. I even mounted a leather holster inside that holds the LCP. My only complaint is that it is very small. I miss the under seat drawer.

I'm going with the Bestop under the driver's seat steel box. Should arrive tomorrow. I plan on inserting a piece of foam with a formed cutout of my companion to keep it from bouncing around.

I use the bestop under seat. Perfect for the times you can't carry it and don't want anyone else to touch it.

If I'm driving in a rough area and I've only got a shorts pocket to carry in I put it next to the ebrake instead.

In the car I either have it out or have it locked, no in between. At the house I use a quick access lock but the gun stays in one place all the time unlike the jeep.
