    The box is mounted to the console and will discourage the casual smash and dash. When closed it is accessible from the driver's seat with a key. When left in the car a black scarf (looped around the gear shift) camouflages it enough to make it hard to see from the exterior. It easily holds a full size pistol, phone, and wallet if you're in the gym.

    Dimensions on this are ~11" x 8" x 3"

    [I cannot recommend this company due to the legitimately horrible customer service.]

    Now when I say he bolted it down I'm not talking about that little cord it came with.
    He drilled holes in bottom of the safe, and in bottom trunk and put two bolts to hold it in place.
    He put silicone around where the bolts were to keep water out as well.
    I definitely wouldn't trust that thin cable. Thicker cables than that can be cut in less than a minute with rather small hand tools.

    Thank you for some really good ideas. But I think the small safe under the seat would work pretty well for my compact car. …
    And, they have the advantage of being able to be swapped between vehicles if needed (for travel, etc.). Unless something has changed, the folks who toss vehicles to steal things generally don’t carry much in the way of tools. If it’s for temporary storage (ex. when going into so-called gfz’s), should be sufficient.

    I have a Hornady lock box for our personal vehicle, while not 100% break in proof it has a thick steel bracket you can secure to the lower mounting point of the seat . It weighs about 12 to 15 pounds. and place under the seat it will give you just enough room to get it open with the key. Very discreet and it’s going to take some one a bit of time to defeat it.

    Might be an option?
    I may have the same box...not the fastest retrieval system, but a brute to break into to steal a firearm!
    I've only used it once or twice (going into a federal building) as I believe in have the firearm on the person and not just stored in a vehicle!

    I have a biometric/key/code lock safe bolted in my wife's trunk and one under the flip-up back seat of my truck. However, these are just pistol sized. Most anything is just going to slow someone down, but hopefully discourage even trying.
    These hold a gun and ammo permanently, since I try to carry when I'm able. I know I'll always have a gun in close proximity if I'm not carrying.

    Thanks. Looks like a decent price on a biometric. Have you had any issues with it being cold in your car in the winter?
