The problem I’ve always had with trigger locks and conventional safes is that if you need your gun quickly you’re out of luck. A year ago I bought a Gunvault http://www.gunvault.com/ It only takes seconds to open, and you can even open it with your eyes closed- dark bedroom in the middle of the night.

You’ll pay more if you buy direct from the company website, so I would not order from them, just do a search. Best deal I could find when I got mine was www.mydiscountstation.com

And for securing your sidearm in the car check this out http://www.center-of-mass.com/
Just got two of these a few weeks ago and have been happy with them, can’t beat the price. Also you can get multiple safes keyed the same.

Cool.

I only own rifles, but I will keep those in mind if I ever get a wheelgun.

Good ideas. I have thought about the gunvault. Have you had any problems with it? Also is it battery operated or completely mechanical?

Battery operated. You can use a circular key in the event the batteries die. Consider mounting the vault to the underside of a surface, like a desk or a night table next to your bed.

No problems at all, this thing is VERY solid. I’ve had the same set of 8 AA batts in it for a year, and I use it almost daily. It has a low batt indicator to let you know when to replace.

For about $30 more you can get the deluxe model, this one is AC powered with batts as a backup and it has some other cool anti-tampering features like an alarm.
