As far as there being an "accident" to prevent. There are no accidents after a theft. If some jerkass is going to rob me, I don't feel responsible for what he/she does with what he/she takes.
I don't want to take this thread and hijack it and go off topic. But to me, being a gun owner is a 7x24x365 responsibility. At the moment, there are forces actively working in the United States to ban and/or severely restrict guns and our right to self-defense (Obama, Clinton, Bloomberg, etc.). It is critical that law abiding gun owners do everything we can to make the clear distinction that Gun Criminals ARE CRIMINALS. Likewise, law abiding gun owners must be seen as responsible and trustworthy individuals. Most of the gun crimes in the United States are committed with illegal and stolen guns and they estimate over half of all stolen guns are stolen from cars. Therefore, knowing that the public's safety and our constitutional rights are at stake; I choose to do everything I can to prevent my firearm from being stolen and used in a crime. Also, in my state, I can be held responsible for any crime with my firearms unless I report it stolen. The liability far outweighs the $250 for the safe.

I just purchased this for my GMC Canyon. I went with the 3 combination as my main use is to secure my firearm in my truck and ensure my young children cannot access it.

The vault was shipped the day after ordering by FedEx and arrived in 2 days.

I went for the recommended install of just sliding the vault in and securing the two screws. It took less than 5 minutes. The foam I received was cut to size of the vault and I inserted it on the inside.

I did cover the bottom of the vault with 3M double sided tape for extra strength and stability, don't think It really needed it but no harm done.

Overall very pleased.

Just got mine installed today. Added a gun magnet before installing to hold my firearm while at work.

I am about to pull the trigger :O on this vault. I am also considering placing two Safariland Quick Locking System receiver plates in the truck. One in the vault and one under the steering column. That way the weapon can ride safely in the holster and be transferred between the two mounting points. Does anyone think those those side bolts will interfere with my idea?

If you're unfamiliar with the holster.

Installed in my truck and now i have an annoying chirp when going over bumps. If I push down on the vault it doesnt happen so its definitely coming from the center console.
