If I have a small 5" x 5" ipad like bag that can be zipped up and locked with a padlock, could I zip tie it to the bottom of my car's drivers seat and stick a .380 in there, legally? Or would that be the same as "bolting a container to the car, making it a permanent container like a utility box"?

I would think so, but I would rather use a cable that you can wrap around the seat frame.

Locked container, yes.

Good idea, no. Leaving guns in cars without really good security is bad.

Who said anything about leaving the gun in the car?

I was thinking about a hefty cable as well.

HUH?
then why lock the gun under the seat?
For legal transportation without a LTC?

I use one of these:

The gun can sit on your driver seat loose as long as its in your locked container.

FYI, biometrics can fail if your hand is sweaty or covered in blood.

I wouldnt do it. But if you had too should get a lock box.

You can record several prints and store them - I record both indexes,
middle fingers and thumbs. That way I can use either hand to open the box. I'll like the speed at which I can open the box without having to fumble with keys or screwing with a combo.

How many times do we have to say, fastening something to the car does NOT turn it into a utility compartment?

I really do like those but one must remember that only one person can access it in an emergency, with a keyed lock then a friend or loved one can open the box.

Back up access key x 2 (use when batteries run out)

You can have several different individual finger prints register to each bio lock - my wife (3) and mine (3) finger prints can open our box in our home and my finger print can access my sons bio locked case if it's needed while we're traveling together.

Regarding batteries - I use my safe three to four times a week for the past 13-months on the same batteries!
