I've seen them, they work well. Been meaning to do it to a couple of mine, just haven't gotten around to it yet. One will be bolted to the floor in back of the SUV, there is a retractable tonneau cover that covers the cargo compartment. The vehicle's black, the carpet inside is black, the back windows have dark tint.

It's not a horrible idea, but I think there are better ones, I mean lets face it, if someone wants it bad enough they're gonna take it. We were on a job in Northern Vermont where we thought there were more moose than people. We encircled our fuel truck with drills, a laborer spent an hour chaining everything together, we locked a gate for the driveway. Next day we came in and the fuel truck was gone.

@budgetprepp-n You seem like the type of guy who likes to learn new skills so get a welder and build a box. New skill (welding) and a serious way to secure a weapon. Even better may be a hidden lever to unlock the box so no key needed.
I use this for traveling to keep things legal. Different have different laws.

And storing the ammo with the magazines is is no no in some states
Whatever, I use two boxes. One for ammo and one for magazines. Firearms go in there own hard case
A few bucks and a little hassle can save you from spending lots of money (lawyer) and lots and lots of hassle
I don't have a problem kids but if you do this will settle the problem
I guess it's how you look at it and what you are using it for. And this take a beating
