Bought one of these at Fishermans a few weeks ago, and it has worked out well for me. I have to enter secured Federal buildings semi frequently, as well as a paranoid Dr. Office, and really think this product fits my need to secure the weapon in my Car for an hour or so. Some one would have to have a Bolt Cutter with them to remove the NanoVault and even then, would probably damage the gun pretty badly when trying to get the Vault itself open at a later time. Also use it for storing Wallet, Phone , etc.... when I leave them in the car, but my intention when buying it was for Gun storage. Bought the smallest version and it works Great for my PM9 or a J-Frame. They offer 2 or 3 sizes of this product. Just my opinion, and yours may Vary.
