What to Know: Buying a Gun Safe for Your Car

In 2021, over 8,000 guns including shotguns, rifles and handguns, were reported stolen or lost in the United States. Many of these thefts were reported to be unsecured firearms in cars. We know that a priority for responsible gun owners is the safety of those around them and the ones they love. Investing in a gun safe is a simple, but effective, deterrent to thefts.

Why Would You Want a Gun Safe in Your Car?

Gun owners have a variety of reasons for owning their firearms. While some people maintain extensive collections as a hobby, many more people use guns for practical reasons. Securing your weapons, especially when traveling, becomes essential. A car gun safe or pistol box keeps your weapon out of reach of those who aren’t meant to handle it — thieves or wandering hands — while keeping it close to you in case of an emergency.

Security For Your Needs

You’ve got multiple options when deciding what works for you. Many car manufacturers, including truck brands such as Chevy, Toyota and Dodge have options for a concealable, customizable gun safe built into the console. For those looking for something with more flexibility or not interested in upgrading truck models, a mountable gun safe is a great option. Whichever way you go, having a lockable location for your firearms adds a comforting level of security and protection. 

Fort Knox knows each individual gun owner has their own preferences to consider too. One size does not always fit all, especially when it comes to what to protect. Those looking to get a gun safe can look at four styles of safes, each mountable to cars, trucks and RVs. In particular, our CAB security box is a favorite when it comes to securing firearms in vehicles; Equipped with a 10 gauge body and a Simplex® mechanical lock with three sizes to fit whatever space needed. 

Regardless of what you choose, investing in a Fort Knox car gun safe will provide you with peace of mind. From compact cars to the largest trucks, we understand and provide the safes needed to effectively protect your firearms wherever the road might bring you.
