Thread: Leaving guns in vehicles.

    Leaving guns in vehicles.

    Too often we see news stories of "they stole my gun out of my car"... too often if you learn more you find the vehicle wasn't even locked.

    Listening to scanner today there was a bank robbery nearby. A witnesses got the tag number and vehicle description of the get away car.
    Turns out the car was stolen last night out of a driveway in a nearby town, and there was a pistol in the car when it was stolen, the same car and pistol the guy used to rob the bank today.

    90%+ of the time, the gun is on my person, so leaving it in the vehicle isn't a problem. If for some reason my gun is in the car and not on my person, it never gets left in the vehicle.

    For instances where I must leave my gun in the vehicle because I am going someplace, such as the courthouse, where it is illegal to carry, and they have mental detectors, I have a small keylock safe secured to the vehicle, where I place my gun and I lock the vehicle.

    Who the hell leaves a gun, or any valuables for that matter, in an unlocked vehicle anymore?

  3. I leave little in my car these days. Gotta take accountability for that.

    Sometimes you just have to leave it in there but as a long term storage no thanks. Most of your break ins are junkies and bums just grubbing for change. They wonít even bother to break the glass an draw possible attention unless something particularly sweet is evident.. leave a computer , wallet or gun visible and for them itís like winning the lottery.
    Stuff it in the trunk buried in something and nobody is ever even going to look .

    I keep one of mine in my truck but I at least keep it in a 10-gauge high-dollar console vault.

  6. Have a console vault also. Worth every penny and keep other valuables in there too so it's not just a single purpose buy.

  7. The only time I store my pistol in my car is when I have to enter someplace where Itís illegal to carry or at the gym. But as soon as I get back to my car I re-holster. In the unlikely event my car is stolen during said period which is unlikely considering my carís safety features prevent it from starting without my key fob or if itís broken into and stolen then my firearms are insured through USAA.

    Fortunately I live in a state where itís not illegal to carry in places that have a no guns sign except for government buildings and schools so my gun goes wherever I go but my truck gun is separate from my carry gun.

    And how safe would that be?

    Well since itís stored in a very expensive steel safe thatís bolted to the truck, theyíd have to work pretty hard to get to it. Itís not just left in the glove box or under the seat if thatís what you mean.
