Re: Has anyone built or thought about a safe for their bus?
It would be a bit more labor intensive, but you could cut a hole in the floor, build a steel cage around the outside of the safe under the bus, and flush mount the safe with the floor. Then cover it with a rug or some such item. More work to install this way, but a safe in the floor would be cool.
I also go armed almost everywhere, especially when doing craigslist deals. It sucks that we have to get a permit here, but at least anybody can get one if you meet the qualifications. Michigan is a very friendly firearm state. If you open carry with a concealed pistol license the only places you cannot go are federal buildings, courts, and casino's. as a side note....michigan considers any firearm under 30 inches to be a pistol, so I can carry my mossberg 500 with pistol grip and 18.5 inch barrel under authority of my cpl (ccw)
also, michigan accepts "ccw's" from every other state. So if you are licensed in your home state, you can carry here.
