I still say out of view out of mind. But yes, I have to carry items in my safe for lawful reasons. I had my van vandalized at a Ford dealership. The jerks ripped out the safe but thankfully they dropped it with the contents intact. Mine was bolted to the cabinets so an easy rip. Stealth is better.

Yup, I agree that hidden is best. Mine is in the bottom of the cabinet where all the dirty laundry goes and is bolted through the floor of the van. To get it out they will pay a very stinky price..........
