What do you do to keep your gun safe in your truck?

Guys,

Just bought a Taurus 40. She's gorgeous. I would like to keep it with me at times, but couldn't stomach the thought of someone breaking into my truck and stealing her. How do you secure your gun in your truck? Is there somewhere sly to put a safe or something?

If you don't mind changing up your center counsel some there is an awesome product I'm looking at getting from Counsle Vault. It is a vault that installs inside your center counsel and looks factory. They are a bit pricey but protecting your firearm and not getting a passable felony charge against you it's worth it.

I was looking into these, but don't wanna lose the whole center console for it. May be worth it, though. For now, she'll have to stay at the house til I see another viable option.

yeah after a while the thread was Canada vs USA. I didn't realize you were asking in an 7.3, good luck!

Something I've done for years is use my Fobus paddle holster. Take it off your hip, and it will fit on the drivers door panel clipped in. Easy draw access, and when you get out of the truck, you can easily wear the holster concealed.

Funny thing, I noticed the same thing today with my fobus. I figured that when I went and grabbed it that the holster and pistol would come out, turns out it fits perfect and the pistol can be drawn from the holster while its in there
