    Lockable box for handguns on flight

    Looking for recommendations on a relatively inexpensive, lockable box for a Springfield Armory Micro compact 1911, S&W .38 revolver and a Ruger LCP.

    I will be flying with all three while moving from NY to Texas (FINALLY!) and want to follow the regs by the book. I have heard there are lockable boxes that can also be locked to the inside of you luggage.

    Thanks very much for any input.

  3. I use the center of mass lock box inside my luggage - has worked great so far.

    Bad website, great product.

    Do you just toss it in the trunk? Or how do you use it?

    I have a keyed model and two combination-lock models. Each came with a 1,500 lbs. test security cable as pictured in the following link. The security cables require no tools.

    For the keyed model, I looped the cable through my spare tire mount. Although I haven't yet done this, I plan to use my two combination-lock models in my checked bags when flying...gun in one, ammo in the other. Presumably I can use the included security cable(s) to secure one or both safes to the bed frame in my hotel room.

    But before you commit - check this out:

    The Franzen Armloc II pistol case


    Franzen Armloc II Pistol Case

    This is a really versatile pistol case that locks with either a combination lock, cylinder lock, or both. It has a carry handle built in, and it comes with 2 mounting brackets - one for the bed frame for quick access to your SD weapon, and another for more permanent mount to a wall, car trunk, etc.

    When you want to take the case with you, just unlock it & detach it from the mounting bracket via the thumbscrews below the padding.

    This thing is thing is rock-solid too. Impossible to break in to (without power tools, anyway).

    When mine isn't mounted to the bed frame, it's going with me to the range. This is a VERY high quality pistol case for less than $100.

    (No, I don't work for the company. I'm an IT guy from Sacramento.)

    I use Gunvault Microvault

    You can buy them from Gunvault or Center of Mass. I can get 2 pistols with mags in it. I use it for auto and air travel. Comes with a security cable

  10. Be ware of knock offs folks

    Hi folks, I am brand new to your forum and for the sake of full disclosure I am the owner of Center Of Mass Central. Needless to say I am slight biased on this subject.

    KevinD and everyone else, thank you very much for recommending the safes we sell.

    The safes we sell are the original and we have been selling these since 2003. So be careful with what you buy where because you could be buying the knock off.

    I will get out of your way now but feel free to shoot me a PM if you have any questions. Also, I don't surf forums very often because I am so darn busy so please forgive me if I don't reply instantly. However I will do my best to answer any questions you may have as quickly as I can.

    Take care.

    Since your obviously checking the bag that has your safe in it, do you have to declare it when checking it, if so Does that get kinda messy?
