5 Gun Safes to Consider Stocking

5 Gun Safes to Consider Stocking

Gun safes can be big-ticket items that take up a lot of floor space, or small, portable security solutions that you can upsell when a customer makes a gun purchase. Carry both types, if you can, and consider stocking these five great models. 

Fort Knox Original Pistol Box

The Original Pistol Box from Fort Knox is one of three designed for handguns, each with increasing size to handle multiple guns and magazines. The boxes have four pre-drilled bolt-down holes on the floor of the box, soft internal lining, textured powder-coat finish, 10-gauge steel body and five-button punch lock system. Fort Knox also offers similar storage options for shotguns and personal effects. www.ftknox.com


Hornady RAPiD Safes

Hornady’s flagship security system is designed with the RAPiD system, which uses touchless entry via an RFID chipped bracelet, fob or decal. Up to five RFID tags can be programmed for each safe. A four- to six-digit security code also can be programmed on the keypad. Exterior housing is thick steel with hardened interior locking lugs. A security cable rated to 1,500 pounds also is included, as are pre-drilled mounting holes. Multiple models and options are available with the RAPiD system. www.hornady.com/security


Hornady Dual-Lid Lockbox (pictured above)

These thin, dual-console lockboxes are among Hornady’s six inexpensive models that offer hard-sided protection with a durable lock. Eggshell foam-lined interiors protect valuables. The cases have 16-gauge steel housing, a steel security cable with connector, two keyed steel barrel locks and a foldable carry handle. These are excellent options for home or vehicle storage and travel. www.hornady.com


SecureIt Tactical Answer Lightweight The Answer Lightweight series from SecureIt is one of several offered by the company based on input from the U.S. Army Special Forces. These safes, tactical racks and storage systems — SecureIt clearly distinguishes between safes and cabinets — handle AR-style rifles, long guns, shotguns, handguns and accessories. The Answer Lightweight series offers the same protection of heavier safes but with less weight. SecureIt systems have modular, adjustable shelves, bins and trays for organized storage. The Model 84 24/24 cabinet, for example, stores 24 rifles and 24 handguns. The Agile Ultralight Quad Kit Pro combines the Agile Model 52 and Agile Model 40 systems that can be assembled to create four lockers. It can handle up to 24 long guns but offers multiple configurations for firearms, ammunition, bows or other equipment. www.secureitgunstorage.com



Total Defense 24 Gun Safe

The interior has gray carpet, along with a factory-installed door storage organizer with sewn-in holsters and pouches.
