    Well I would not rely on hiding it.

    My home was broken into back in 2014 and the thief (or thieves) turned over everything except the gun safe. They will turn over everything in your home too.

    Drill a hole through the gun box, run a padlock through it, attach this to a heavy chain, and attach the chain with another padlock to your metal bed post someplace where it cannot be removed without a torch or hacksaw.

    For my car, I attach the chain to the metal base of the passenger seat.

    This is what we have for Jeep use only.

    https://www.amazon.com/SnapSafe-Comb...5%3A2470955011

    We attach the cable around the bottom of the seat frame and tuck the box under the seat. We use it for short-term gun storage only when we go somewhere that we can't carry the gun inside.

    At home we use a full-size Liberty safe.

    I have the Gunvault MV500-STD that I have used for years. I bought the biometric version at a door buster sale at Cabelas and have been disappointed in it. Finger print reader fails 1/3 of the time. I got so aggravated with it that I switched back to my original push button model. Wouldn't want to bet my life on the biometric model in a home intruder situation.

    I have had mine for 3 months now. I access it at least 2 times a day and have not had to change the batteries yet. I am using Low Self Discharge Amazon Basics Rechargeable batteries.

    The instructions for the safe say do jot use rechargeables. Just like 70% of electronics I buy. Never had a problem with it before. I don't buy regular one time use batteries.

    If you have battery problems with the safe try using a quality low self discharge rechargeable batteries in it.

    I would not want my life to depend on batteries (I feel sorry for everyone who wears a pacemaker too).

    That looks good.

    I prefer key safes with a padlock drilled through it though.

    To each his own.

    Cornee, no system is fool proof.

    If they want to they can bring an oxyacetalene tourch and cut through anything.

    The idea is to make it hard for them not easy.

    The only safe place for a gun of any kind (pistol, revolver, shotgun, carbine, or rifle) is on your person.

    And besides your gun the only thing on this Earth that you can trust is your dog. Or cat.

    Pets won't ever kill you for your insurance money, revenge, or because they are unfaithful.

    What's your point? It sounded to me like you thought I just had my safe sitting wherever I keep it, not bolted down to anything.

    It's bolted down and it's hidden. What more do I need to do?

    And it's cor-neil-e-ous.

    Since I have only one pistol, I bought the Gunvault 2000 a couple of years ago. big enough for my pistol and 2 mags. I chose the key lock version over the combination model. Comes with 1500 lb. cable retainer. FAA approved. I can use it in my truck, car, home. Cost less that $30.00.
