Of course, handguns aren’t the only firearms that need to be stored in a vehicle. What if you need to secure a rifle or shotgun? Well, just like for handguns, there are plenty of companies that produce safes for your long guns. One in particular that I’ve had my eye on for a while is the TruckVault. The TruckVault is a large metal vault that can slide into the back of your pick-up, SUV, van or pretty much any type of vehicle. The vaults come as large as 48 inches wide and 55 inches long to store a number of long guns as well as other gear. Also, for added convenience, the TruckVault has an option that will allow you to quickly access the vault by a remote key fob. – See more at: https://www.personaldefenseworld.com/2015/05/9-vehicle-based-gun-safes-and-holster-mounts/#truckvault
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. – See more at: https://www.personaldefenseworld.com/2015/05/9-vehicle-based-gun-safes-and-holster-mounts/#gum-creek-vehicle-handgun-mount
If mounting the pistol underneath the steering wheel or in front of the seat doesn’t appeal to you, then the Grassburr Leather Works Mount may interest you. The Grassburr mount can be mounted from the top or from the side, allowing you to mount the gun in several different areas of your vehicle. – See more at: https://www.personaldefenseworld.com/2015/05/9-vehicle-based-gun-safes-and-holster-mounts/#grassburr-leather-works-mount
As concealed carry continues to grow across the country, the amount of accessories to accommodate gun owners is also growing.
Owners like to carry wherever they can, but sometimes that isn’t possible, as author Jason Hanson writes. “If you carry concealed every day like I do, you know there are multiple places you’re not allowed to bring a gun.”

“I don’t like leaving the gun in my vehicle where it could be stolen. But sometimes you don’t have a choice, and if you have to leave your gun in your car, I believe it should be as secure as possible. Luckily, with all of the new products on the market these days, it’s a lot easier to keep your gun secure so that it will still be there after mailing a package or paying a speeding ticket at the courthouse.”
