    Sentry Safe Auto Safe, Shooting Supplies, Sentry at Sportsman's Guide

    Sentry web site says retail is $89 and cheapest on ebay is $44 +shipping

    I was worried about the cable , but the person who had it was retired NYPD and said not likely that the person breaking in would have bolt cutters for the cable. Convinced me!
    Looks like a nice safe I may have to look into it. I just found the S&W quick draw safe it looks nice. But it would not work for what I'm looking for. Does anyone have a safe like it?

    YouTube - Smith & Wesson QuickDraw Gun Safe

    I just found that sentry auto safe on Amazon.com for 29.97 all said and done it would be 38 dollars shipped.

    This is the one I am getting today, I will cable lock it in my trunk, that way, out of sight, safe (pardon the pun). I'll let you know (if you want) how it works out.

    Generally, I won't go to a place that doesn't allow guns, but sometime's it's necessary.

    Deluxe MiniVault with Motion Detector 12x8.1x4.9-3

    I'll try and take some pics of mine tonight with a few of mine in it. By the make of firearm you describe, yes they both should fit with ease..

    I have my M&P45 w/ the new Insight X2 compact light attached, 3 boxes of .45 ammo, 1 M&P45 magazine and I still have enough room to get my hand in and get the gun easily.
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    And here they are..





    Lots of room.. M&P45, M&P40c, 2 boxes of ammo, and 1 spare magazine...

    It's normally just the M&P45, the ammo and 1 mag...

    Outstanding! DROOLLLLLLL LOL. What about two firearms in holsters? From the room it looks like it would be no problem lol. Looks as if you could fit a mac10 in that thing and still have room.

    Yea, You'd have enough room depending on the holster type.

    Check your local Wal-Mart and see if they carry the Winchester version like the one pictured. It looks like they are made by the same manufacturer. Save the shipping cost. Tax free NH yea...

    Good luck..

    When I bought my current SUV (used) it came with a safe under the front passenger seat which functions as my "gun safe." If the SUV hadn't come with one I would have had one installed. I take my handgun and put it into the safe whenever I go to a doctor's appointment, go to a store where I will be trying on clothes and leaving my old ones in a changing booth, or picking up someone at an airport. Moreover, whenever I drive through states where I am not authorized to carry and can not get authorization (New York for instance) I follow the FOPA requirements, and the "gun safe" functions as the locked container into which I can place my unloaded firearm for lawful transportation in conformity with federal law. Remember, my SUV does not have a trunk so I need the safe. I would never get another vehicle without one.

    They are sold out on line at WalMart.com. My local store has a unknown stock so I will have to call them tomorrow. Or hey maybe tonight seeing as how they are open 24/7 lol.

    Okay, maybe I am just dense. If I have to dismantle to cross state lines I will do so, and put it in the trunk, separating the magazine from the gun, reluctantly I will. I cannot bear the thought of taking off my gun and locking it in a safe. I just can't do it. Seems totally counter intuitive to me.. where am I off base here? I am clearly out numbered.
