Titan Security Products is a company that allows you to have a permanently mounted gun safe in your vehicle. The Titan Pistol Vault can be mounted underneath or to the side of your seat for extremely quick access, thanks to the two mounting brackets. This safe is made of 14-gauge steel and doesn’t require any batteries since it uses the Simplex push-button locking system. What I like about this safe is that opening the safe causes the grip of the gun to move upwards, allowing you to get a quick grip. In other words, you don’t have to reach inside the safe and fumble around to get your grip.
If a permanently mounted safe isn’t for you and you’re looking for something simpler and less expensive you should take a look at the Gum Creek Vehicle Handgun Mount. This allows you to mount your gun in a holster directly below the steering wheel for easy access. This type of setup is not a safe and if your vehicle gets broken into the gun is not secured from a thief taking it. But if you’re going on a four-hour road trip and don’t want a gun on your hip for comfort reasons, then this handgun mount would make sense.
If you want something more permanent that you don’t need to take in and out of the vehicle, you may want to consider the Console Vault. The Console Vault is a gun vault that simply replaces the center console in your vehicle. It’s made of 12-gauge steel, has drill-resistant locks and is designed so it can’t be pried open with tools. You can buy the Console Vault with a combination lock or with a key lock. The reason I like this vault is because it’s more discreet looking. The outside of your center console stays the same and the vault is only noticeable when you lift up the console to access it. Also, since this replaces the inside of your center console, you can fit a lot of valuable items in it, such as your gun, cash and jewelry, whereas with a lot of the gun vaults you can only store your gun and a magazine or two. From a convenience standpoint, if you have to leave your gun in your car often, this is probably the best type of gun safe for you.
The TruckBunker is made by the Heracles Research Corporation. The TruckBunker goes in the cab of your truck underneath the seats. It’s a large vault that allows to you store numerous long guns. Plus, you can secure the TruckBunker via tie-downs so you don’t have to do any drilling if you don’t want to.
Finding the right gun safe or holster mount to secure your firearm when traveling is as vital as buying a concealed carry holster. After all, there’s always going to be places where concealed carry is prohibited, including federal buildings, churches, schools and certain business establishments. While it’s never ideal to be away from your firearm when you’re out in public, a number of manufacturers in the industry have developed products designed to keep your gun safe and secure in your vehicle. Scroll through the gallery above for a brief look at four such products. To get a more complete rundown of what’s out there, please visit https://www.personaldefenseworld.com
