Glove compartment guns?
Colorado has laws that allow me to carry a loaded gun in my glove box, so I did so. This morning, a police officer told me that my car had been broken into along with many other cars down my block. The thieves opened my door somehow and opened my glove compartment and dumped the contents on the seat, but did not take anything. The thieves did not notice the other smaller glove compartment above the main one. In that was my chambered Ruger LC9 9mm pocket pistol. I kept it there because it fit and if was stolen, I would not really miss it (although, if the cops told me that my stolen gun was just used in a triple homicide, that would be troubling).

Colorado allows a person to carry a firearm in a vehicle if its use is for lawful protection of such person or another's person or property. [C.R.S. 18-12-105(2)] Colorado law also allows a person to possess a handgun in a dwelling, place of business, or automobile. https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/csp/colorado-gun-laws

2017 Chevrolet Sonic LT sedan interior.
The thieves opened the lower glove compartment but not the upper one that resembles the hatch on an airbag.

What kind of guns do you recommend for glove compartments?
Anyone recommend any gun holders for cars?

TITAN Gun Safe Pistol Vault
http://www.titangunsafe.com/2/60-TITAN_Gun_Safe_Pistol_Vault.html
Although many people just keep guns in the car glove box or central console (flip-up compartment between the front seats of a vehicle).
Some states allow this, some only allow this if the car driver or owner has a valid concealed weapons permit, and some states forbid this.

A cheap Kel-Tec mouse gun will fit in such consoles, but keeping guns in such may result in stolen guns if the car is broken into or if the car is stolen.

The Gun in the Glove Box https://www.concealedcarry.com/safety/the-gun-in-the-glove-box/
Unfortunately, It is the First Place Thieves Look
Theft from vehicles accounts for 36% of all thefts according to the department of justice. 1.255 Billion dollars of personal belongings are stolen in 1.85 million car thefts each year. That essentially calculates to a 1 in 100 chance that any US citizen with a drivers license will experience a vehicle theft each year.

When the thief breaks into your car where is the first place they always look? The console and the glove box. Thieves know these are the most common places to keep electronics and the best place to find your home address (via the registration and insurance cards). Keeping a gun in the glove box is a sure way to invite it to be stolen.

Car gun lockers are more secure, but a lot less accessible than simply stowing a pistol in the glove compartment or central console or under the seat.

Looking at some of what's available out there in the area of quick-access handgun safes. Trying to just make viewers aware that these things on the market and what features you might want to consider, regardless of what brand you buy. The best ones to purchase might just not even be on the table, but these are the ones I happen to have right now and DO represent features that are worthy of consideration.

>Glove compartment guns? aka Truck guns here in Tx.

Ultimately end up being guns that we as the owners do not mind risking due to limited cost of the weapon system.

With one liability side huge cliff hanger.

>my stolen gun was just used in a triple homicide, that would be troubling).

All of these are options.
>>110948
>>110944
>>110945
None of which fully removes the nagging concern of does that limit my liability.

End of the day, man up and lug your shit inside and put it away. I have been in your same shoes literally, but a little worse in my loss of property. It was a lesson for me, and should be a wake up call for you.

Your state currently has no laws about reporting fire arms stolen.
http://smartgunlaws.org/reporting-lost-or-stolen-firearms-in-colorado/

But considering their private sale restrictions regarding NCIS checks, I am shocked that they do not.

I personally like this option though if you are looking for a car holster. Just be responsible and carry your shit in.

While I could easily be wrong, that lock looks like something seven-year-old me would've been able to rake open with a couple of bent paperclips in like two minutes.

You're probably right. Or the anchoring cable could be cut quickly with wire cutters. But these cheap gun lockers are to keep snatch-and-run thieves and children away from your gun.

What do you folks recommend for cheap small guns to keep in your car and that you would not really miss if they were stolen?
You don't want to trust your life to utter garbage, but you don't want to risk losing your best pistol to a car theft.
I chose my Ruger LC9 9mm pocket pistol because it fit well in my little glove compartment and it's a nice shooter. I also would have used my cheap Kel-Tec P-11 12-shot 9mm DAO as they cost under $250.

I dunno, maybe a boat anchor from HiPoint? As I understand it, they're actually breddy reliable; I guess it's hard to fuck up straight blowback.

Seems like alot of people use Hi Points for car guns. I remember someone here mentioning way back that they worked at a car auction and most of the guns they found when going through the cars before selling them were Hi Points.

As a former owner I'd say they are pretty reliable. Ugly as sin, heavy as fuck to the point I think it would be excellent to beat the shit out of someone with, and apparently bordering on Nokia levels of indestructible going by Demolition Ranch.

I'm not even a Colt fanboy, and ultimately, you can do as you please, but what the fuck bro?

>[T]hey are pretty reliable. Ugly as sin, heavy as fuck to the point I think it would be excellent to beat the shit out of someone with, and apparently bordering on Nokia levels of indestructible...

That does seem to be the consensus.
>> No. 110996 ID: 3e843b
>>110993
The consensus of anyone who has handled them with an open mind atleast. Too many gun snobs will either never give them a chance because they look like Frankenstein's monster's big black cock or act like its a total piece of shit even when they do handle it even if it runs flawlessly.

I mean I can't blame people for thinking the Hi Point is crap just by looks, its like a Deagles short bus cousin. It looks so shitty, like you'd think cheapo Lorcins and Raven Arms pot metal pieces of shit would be better quality. But like a meh girl with a big heavy sweater that makes her like like a fattie, whats underneath makes up for the outside.

While it might not have a slim waist, big ol titties and a mouth that could suck your dick so hard you gain a few inches, its a pretty solid bitch that does a fine job putting bullets towards the general direction of targets reliably while not raping your wallet.

The 1903 is not US Govt stamped and no I would not use a M1908 the same way.

The revolver was not my call, but again cheap reliable and all purchased privately.

Pic related, it is that conversation.

End of the day though, be a big boy about it and do the needful.

We no longer keep firearms in the vehicles permanently when parked at the house.

I would also rather not arm dangerous people outside my front door
