    OK, so we get a lot of people that ask questions about securing a firearm. I put this into the Carry Issues section because those of us who carry, should have a secure way to store the firearm(s) when we are not wearing them, whether that be at home or in a vehicle, etc..

    **** PLEASE NOTE - There is some VERY bad language in this video, however, as much as I wish they guy could get his point across without the cursing, there is some VERY good information here.

    Despite his mouth, a pretty good presentation of lock box limitations. At the end his slide shows his personal website (deviant dot net) which has some good info on firearms transportation on airlines. Thanks for posting.

    Just goes to show you that lock boxes only add a false sense of security. Nice post. Thanks Law.

    I don't think most lockboxes/strongboxes/lockers were designed to be impenetrable. They provide a useful way to put up a slight barrier to someone trying to get in that will hopefully turn away a nosy kid. THAT is their purpose. If you rely on such a lockbox to deter a thief, you are missing the mark. And if you fully trust it as a failproof safe against a child, you are also off based. But if you understand their purpose and capabilities, they do provide a nice way to keep your gun fairly ready at hand, but also secure enough to cause at least some hesitation to someone considering getting in.

    That being said, this is good info for many people who do have a false sense of security from such lockers.

    This year's MUST DO list has a gun safe way up near the top.
    I never thought much of those little "feel good" boxes, the vid confirms my concerns, we've already decided to get a Liberty Safe.
    Though this thread is old, it is very valuable!
    Thanks Law!

    I'm ex-military (from back in the day when there was no such things as being "politically correct"), so I guess I just didn't notice any "bad language" in the video. I heard a lot more and a lot louder my first day of boot camp.

    If the lock box can be moved, it is not secure. I believe that you should teach your kids about firearms and you won't have a problem with them accessing them carelessly. Many of us were raised back in the day where there were no such things as gun safes and we survived. We were taught gun safety from an early age.
    Home is where the RV is...

    Kind of ironic, don't ya' think?
