I have the mvb500 for this purpose. Works great and if you ever need to swap to a different vehicle it takes all of 30 seconds.If you are going to leave a firearm in a vehicle it is best to invest in a car safe that is either permanently mounted or secured with a cable. A simple key operated one works but you can invest in one that is either biometric or requires you to key in a code. If you go the electronic route make sure you change the batteries regularly. I have a biometric one with a key backup that secures with a cable that I can loop around my seat anchor.
A little off the topic at hand but would you recommend the Geco 45 ammo? Been looking for some decently priced ammo for my XD45 and found it for $17 for a box of 50. I've seen good reviews elsewhere but just wondering how it does through these guns. Thanks!A couple weeks ago I took my competition XDM out to the range. It was cold out, in the 30s, with a cold wind chill.
For the first time since I've owned my pistol my XDM had light primer strikes. I'm talking almost every round. I was using Geco 45 ammo and there the pistol was clean as a whistle. Needless to say I was let down as this is the first time I've had any trouble.
As it turns out, lube was gumming up the striker channel. It's easy to get some in there when you clean your pistol and some products turn gummy when they get cold so it's important to keep lube out of your striker channel by cleaning it once in a while.
