I would NOT keep a long gun chambered in a car. TMK, they do not have the same drop safeties as a handgun, and might be more likely to fire in a wreck - and, if you're in a situation to get one out of a trunk, I suspect clambering wouldn't be an issue.

Given that just about 100% of the guns used in crimes were stolen from somebody else, I'd be concerned about being a doner. IMNSHO I'd be stashing a pump shotgun in some kind of locking collar for my get home gun.

I'm looking at some type of locking device for it. I would definitely feel better. My maintenance person at work owns a fab shop and I have him looking to make me something.
I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

On the few times I've kept an AR in my car, I used a long, thick steel cable lock. I locked the bolt back, threaded the cable through the ejection port and out the magazine well. I then locked it to the car seat anchor points in the car. I figure the BCG is locked back, preventing disassembly, and the cable goes through the upper and lower. It's fairly strong, would definitely prevent a smash and grab theft. I even took a cheap case and cut out space for the cable, so it's covered as well.
