Yes and no, it has a cable I loop around my seat frame, if someone wants something bad enough they will get it. At least this way it's harder to smash and grab and it releases me from liability because the thief had to break into 2 locked places (1 my car and 2 the safe) to obtain my weapon.

Mine is bolted to the floor of my van. It attaches to a base. Buy an extra base and easily secure it in the house too.

I know multiple people with Michigan CPLs that never carry. One of them doesn't even own a handgun yet. I myself carry almost all the time. I am armed right now sitting on my couch typing this. I'm armed probably 90%+ of the time. The only time I leave my pistol in the safe is when I know I will be having some beers.

Just changed the mag spring and follower on my wife's 12 gauge. The old spring was very very weak and rusty. New spring was easily twice the length. That thing was an ASSHOLE to put back together.

Shotgun is now 100% mechanically.

I picked up a nice one at the Novi gun show, the guy seems to be at all the shows. Thick leather with a nice buckle, I think it was $35 or so.

I don't carry as much as i would like to. I can't carry at work or any time i represent the company....so technically driving to/from work wearing my uniform is out (i don't adhere to this part). The company is not anti gun to customers, only employees which is retarded.

I do carry whenever possible on my own time however

I assume you call it an asshole because the spring flew out and punched you in the face like mine did once.
