Thread: Securing Guns in Vehicles

    Securing Guns in Vehicles

    What methods do people use for securing guns in vehicles or are there indeed any methods available that are safe and acceptable? Are there lockable storage lockers commercially available that can be secured in the boot for example? In this months BASC Magazine, there is an article on a 'Hunting Pack' for certain Isuzu 4x4's. But what about the rest of us with more regular vehicles?

    You could use a normal gun cabinet or get one made to fit. Maybe a trigger lock with a cable to the chassis, or a good dog!

    Steel cable bike lock fed through a suitable part of firearm, trigger guard or breech as appropriate and round solid part of the vehicle, tie down point, seat mounting etc.

    also take the bolt with you or the fore-end if a shotgun

    It is acceptable to take 'reasonable precautions'.

    Have a look at Part 7 of this https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...y-handbook.pdf

    From my point of view, car locked, rifle out of sight, ammunition separate and bolt away with me does for most circumstances.
    If the car is to be left for a while in higher-risk areas, I pass a security cable through the spare wheel and secure the rifle through the receiver to that.

    For travelling in the car I keep the guns covered up in their cases, use a kryptonite motorcycle lock and cable looped through the trigger guards and attached to the strong metal hook loops in the boot of the car and take out the bolt/s and keep with me. I made a lockable wooden box to transport them in but it was far too cumbersome with all the other gear I was carrying.

    The quick, cheap and dirty way...

    Buy a cheap hard rifle case off ebay or elsewhere.
    Buy one of these and one of these .
    Drill hole through case big enough to admit cable, in line with trigger guard .
    Pass cable through case and trigger guard. Secure to load loop or similar in boot.

    I remove the bolt / forend and ammunition after that it's s useless Piece of metal and wood just keep them out of sight too and that's plenty safe enough
    There are no perfect men in this world ..... Only perfect intentions

    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .
