What to look for in a biometric handgun safe

What to look for in a biometric handgun safe

Posted by Dominic Schwebs on

One of the biggest considerations gun owners face is where to safely store the weapon when it’s not in use. The majority of states and many municipalities have laws regulating how guns are stored. Failure to comply often exposes gun owners to legal penalties, especially if an accident happens. Many handgun owners elect to store their weapons in a small handgun safe, as a way of keeping their pistol out of the wrong hands – whether a child or a thief. Pistol safes have traditionally featured a combination or digital lock. But in a stressful situation, such as a home invasion, punching inthe right numbers quickly could potentially slow your response time. If your safe has the old school key lock, do you keep your key with you at all times? What happens if you lose your key, or you forget the combination? May we suggest the latest evolution in gun storage: the biometric gun safe.
