I found this on ebay, thought it might work well to lock my carry gun up in my vehicles. Thought I'd bolt it to the floor rather than use the cable though. Anyone have any experience with these?

Sisco, no personal experience but am considering the same. Here is another link, looks like the same box. I like the low profile and the cable so it can be hidden under seat and then pulled out if needed. Only wish it had push button/keypad instead of key. Good luck.

I have one. They are ok for the price, but not super secure. They would prevent a smash and grab, but not a determined thief. I think someone with a big screwdriver could have it open in a minute or two.

I got it to provide a place to stash a handgun away from my daughter, and for that I think it is great.

If you want something super secure, take a look at http://www.handgunsafe.com/safes.htm. You can order them with a key lock, if you like. Totally different price range, though.

Local gunshop got some in this week so I got to get a look at one. Not very heavy duty, would stop an honest man and that's about it.
I did find suitable boxes in the office supply section at WalMart. Built heavier and cost less! One even has an electronic touch lock.
They don't have the security cable but a drill press and a bicycle cable lock would fix that.

I also picked up one of the "wal mart" lockboxes for the vehicle and drilled and bolted it into place (not under the seat obviously :D ). Disguised it pretty well so I doubt anyone will realize what it is.

Just a suggestion, I'd avoid any combination types where a battery powers the unit if you are going to put it in the car.
