    So I always lock my car.

    I can't fathom any good reason why someone would leave his gun in a car in an apartment parking lot. Every reason I can think of brings up a "well, the heck with that, I'll just go home" reaction in my head.

    I recently bought a handgun lock box for my car. It's the type that has a cable that gets looped around your seat bracket. I don't see that I'll use it that much as my gun is almost always with me. I recently got chosen for Federal jury duty and have to drive into Philadelphia for it. There is no way that I could possibly take a handgun into the Federal building so I'm stuck with either going through Philly unarmed or lock the gun in the lock box in my car. Even with an alarm and the lock box I don't feel the gun is totally safe.

    I have a similar lock box. I was kinda squirrely at first- but now do not hesitate to use it.
    I slip mine under the seat so it can not be seen, and no one knows it there anyway.

    In Philadelphia, if your gun is stolen out of your car, even if it was unloaded and in a lock box, and you report it stolen, your concealed carry license will be revoked on the grounds that leaving it unattended constitutes irresponsible firearms use. Since you can't carry into schools, government buildings, courthouses, post offices etc., if you leave your house for any of those destinations you can't take your gun with you in the car without risking the loss of your concealed carry permit. Oh and by the way, it's the law that stolen guns must be reported so if you fail to report it and it later turns up somewhere, not only will your permit be revoked but you will be prosecuted for the failure to report.

    It looks like Philly is continuing its slide, into becoming NYC south.

    One of the things I dislike about the 2004 F150 I bought recently is the lack of a lock on the glovebox. I need to get a little pistol safe to bolt down in it. I never worried about it in the past since I rarely went anywhere I need to disarm for. But, I seem to find myself in hospitals and doctor's offices a lot lately.
