Portable In Car Safe - How Do You Secure Your Handgun or Valuables in Your Car?
What do you do with your handgun when you need to go into a location which restricts your ability to carry it? Do you place it in your car glove box, in the trunk, or hide it under your car seat? Doing so is highly irresponsible, and in some cases illegal. Using the trunk can be obvious to others, plus the trunk is very easy to break into.
