I love all the morons who are all to happy to second guess your actions and bascially call you an idiot. Geez...if he wanted that he'd ask his wife what she thinks...and she will continue to remind him of it for the rest of his life if my experience is any indicator. I keep my guns locked in a Gunsafe Minivault 500 STD. I think they are around $80 on Amazon.com Its not designed to stop a determined thief but it will stop a snatch and grab and the keypad means you don't have to rely on a key. If your homeowner's insurance won't cover it (forget car insurance--doesn't apply) then if you are an NRA member you have $600 of theft coverage there... If you aren't an NRA member shame on you. I've had a gun stolen from my car in a similar situation--rear window smashed out. Nothing was in plain view and I don't have ANY bumper stickers or any other kind of stickers on my car. It happens.
