    Firearms and in car security

    Hi all

    Im keen to get some advice on a lockable rifle case/make and how to secure it in a car to the seat with a wire cable lock.

    Is there a particular lockable case to consider and how do you secure to the vehicle.- is there a case that is robust enough.

    Or how do you guys cover this?


    Thanks in advance

    Brattonsound do a range of 3 specific vehicle boxes which are designed to lay flat and bolt to the floorplan, obviously the vehicle would need to be suitable. I am considering putting a semi-permanent mounting frame in my Discovery for the Brattonsound so I can take it in and out at will. I currently carry firearms with bolt out, ammunition in a separate bag and the rear cover over the load-space. Very, very, very rarely do I carry firearms where I am not going either directly to or from my ground or range. If I stay overnight I always leave it with the gamekeeper/ranger etc to put in their gun safe.
    I also use a locked aluminium framed air-travel approved case to generally transfer my firearams in the car, I put a chain through the handle and around the case and secure to the luggage shackle in the boot. These are generally avaiable - I got a shop soiled aluminium rifle case for 60 which sustained significantly more superficial damge the first time I travelleed with it over-seas!

    David... You are putting yourself in a very precarious spot by leaving your rifle with someone else! Unless that is on their ticket or they are an RFD and book it in/out you are both breaking the law and breaching the terms of your FAC... it's not like a shotgun!

    This is very similar to the one I use and is approved for air transport (if you get the chance to go shooting over-seas). You can get away with a plastic case within Europe but USA regulations require an aluminium framed case and they are pretty secure. This was from a quick google serach, but there are plenty of other vendors:

    I concur - the two I have left it with so far are licenced RFDs so I've got that base covered and I always ask - but thanks for pointing it out Vipa, very good point.
    I also keep hold of the bolt.

    I use 1 of these: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...FcQKfAodv1cbMQ

    I keep the rifle in its slip with the bolt removed and the cable passed through the rifles action and out through the ejection port.
    The cable is then routed round a fixed solid point in the car (seat chassis) and locked with the key.
    Sorted!
