Have you ever heard of a cordless drill?Thieves are lazy. I know a guy that keeps his tools in the back of his Pickup in locked tool boxes. Imagine the shock to the thief to find out he's bolted the toolboxes to the bed in such a way you have to have the bottom drawer out to get at the bolts and have a partner under the bed. He hasn't lost a single tool. Guns are no different. Bolt the lock box down and use that internal locking mechanism should be enough. But unlike the tools, hide the lockbox from open visual. If a thief gets motivated he can still take the lockbox with some pry bars and then try and figure out how to open it later.Most of those cable lock safes have internal locks that aren't exposed.They work on the lock though.Bolt cutters dont work on cables.99% of the time, they will only break a window if they see something that looks valuable inside. If not, they'll just try the door, and if it's unlocked, they will do a quick search to see if there is anything under the seats, or in the console or glove box, and if there is any change in the ashtray.I don't even lock my car. Nor do I have anything of value in it. The cost of a window far exceeds someone just wanting to gain entry looking for something of value that isn't there.Smart is not leaving anything of value in the car let alone a gun.how does this ,make them not smart???
A small secure gun lockbox, attached to the seat post with a cable, will beat most car burglars. Car burglars don't tend to carry any tools bigger than a screwdriver and a sparkplug, and I've never seen any with crowbars and bolt cutters. They want to get in and out quick before they're caught, they don't have the time or the privacy to screw around trying to bust open a small safe.
