    Firearms vault in a 2011 WRX

    I am new to this whole idea of having a car as my main motor vehicle. In the past putting a vault in a truck is an easy thing but in a car, the room is limited. I would like to know if anyone out there has put a vault for a pistol in their newer wrx without drilling holes. Added bonus points for quick access and not using a cable as the security mechanism. Thanks oh yeah pictures would be wicked pissa.

    Butcher block

    found the off-topic thread but didn't reveal what I was looking for. The gun, girls and a wrx video is mildly humorous. I may just have to resort to leaving it on the dash while I am driving around... right next to my open beer wad of cash and pound of weed. In all serious light I was thinking some kind of plate on the floor with holes that match up with the seat mounts, then some kind of bolting of a small vault to the plate.. has anyone seen any kind of accessory that had the seat mount holes that I might be able to butcher for my cause?

    You live in Johnstown PA. There is no bad part of that town..... If you feel the need to have a firearm to protect you anywhere near there, you should probably move.

    I prefer to just carry mine on my belt anywhere I go. Gotta love CO gun carry laws.

    Municipal laws suck though. Mountain towns are nice though. Open carry isn't a big deal there

    Just in the event that I need to enter a government building while exercising my second amendment right to carry. Not that I feel manchester is a dangerous place or anything, but our state is one of the safest states in the union as a result of so many people exercising that second amendment right.
