5 Safe Options

Safe storage of guns and personal items remains a number one priority to any gun owner. Finding the right safe that fits every need seems impossible. Here are 5 safes to look at whether you need one for the home or the vehicle.

For the Vehicle
For those with trucks or SUVs, no better solution for gun transportation exists like TruckVault.  Possibly the coolest thing about TuckVault is customization. A wide variety of lock configurations and drawer heights exist. If you want to get really elaborate with a customization try adding the technology platform or in drawer lighting.


For those that only need enough room for a handgun use a Console Vault. The console lid maintains its original function, but hides a lockable, 12-guage steel vault. Users self-install the console vault and have the option for keyed, three- or four-digit locks. If owners can’t locate their model vehicle, Console Vault offers a universal floor vault that fits older model vehicles.


For the Home
Built right here in the U.S.A., Revolution Safe Company provides gun owners an intuitive gun safe, which can be precisely configured to suit the needs of the owner. Revolution delivers three safe series with over 45 customizable options. Nobody like a messy safe. Revolution Safe safes are manufactured by Pendleton, which stands out for the rotating gun management system, which maintains order and space in a confined space.

My very first safe was a Liberty FATBOY. In all likelihood, my next safe will be a FATBOY. This safe screams functional and easy-to-use. What’s not to love? The FATBOY safes give gun owners a ton of space at a fraction of the cost that other safes of this size would cost. It stows away 64 guns. Yep, you read that correctly. It also boasts an 83,000 BTU fire protection rating. This basically means it has more fireboard than the similar competitors.


Most folks know the Hornady name for being a trusted name in ammunition, but creating reliable safes? Come on man, you serious? Yes. I. Am. The Hornady RAPiD Safes give users convenient keypad access, exceeds safety standards and is dependable. Don’t sleep on this ammunition maker when selecting a handgun safe for the house. These guys know what they’re doing.


Once you obtain a gun, the first thing you need to know is where you store it. Do a bit of research and understand your needs before jumping into the safe pool. These five safes deliver reliable results whether on the road or in the house. Get out there! Shoot, have fun and know your guns are safe when not in use. ~ KJ
