Default Where to get spare keys?(non dealer)

I only have one key and it's well worn.
I don't trust making a copy of this key. Is there a place other than the dealer that can make me a brand new key without copying my worn key?
Maybe with my VIN Number and proof of ownership.
I got the car used so I don't have the key tag

Best bet would be a dealer but your other option would be a locksmith who might be willing to cut a new key for you although that's likely going to be a more expensive route and you'd still need to show proof of ownership, etc.

As long as your current key still works why the hesitation to copy it? I've had keys for cars cut at WalMart and Home Depot and only had an issue once and a second pass through the key cutting machine and my problem was solved.
