Just for clarification, a glove box or a center console in a vehicle is not a "locked container." So placing a firearm in such places will not comply with the law. However it is legal to put a handgun in a locked container into a glove box or console--as long as it is in a locked container it is legal, irrespective of where you put it, even on the seat next to you. But then again, locked or not, a gun container will draw unwanted attention, so use your common sense. Finally, if a police officer sees such a container and you tell him it contains a firearm, the officer may lawfully require you to open the container so that he can ascertain that the weapon is actually unloaded (this used to be called an "e" check after a statutory subdivision, but then they went and renumbered everything....)
