I just picked up one of these guys at the local armory, because any safe is better than no safe at all!

Oh and I was pleasantly surprised to see that they have incorporated a security enhancement, to address the vulnerability that has been talked about here and posted on YouTube by a number of people.

I'm glad that they upgraded the security....not that I am all that concerned with my models. Youtube "hackers' love to post these types of videos but they really don't have any practical application in reality. Mostly because thieves generally are not so dainty in the application of their trade.

I use mine almost every day...the function so far has been flawless

@Springtail , you mentioned that your lifepod was secured to the tailgate rack by 4, 1/4" bolts and steel backing plates. I presume that you had to drill holes in the bottom of the lifepod? Did that compromise the waterproof integrity?

Yes...technically it is no longer "water-proof" which means that it could be dropped in a lake and not take on any water. By definition....it is now merely water-resistant. If you are worried about it taking on any water in a heavy storm, you could slap a bit of silicone seal on the bolts and you would be safe from any water intrusion.

Anyone have a photo of a full size fitting in a tuffy console box? Just looking at pictures of the product, I have to say it looks small..

Guns are pretty much water proof anyways. Unless your daily carry is a musket. Hell I clean my guns in the dishwasher.
