Gun owners may know there’s always a tension between the need to keep guns securely locked away when they’re not in use and the need to access weapons quickly in an emergency. But with some of the newest models of wall gun safes, there’s no longer a need to compromise. A wall gun safe with an electronic or biometric lock can offer easy access and safety at the same time.
Easy access wall safes
In the middle of the night, when your heart is racing, it can be surprisingly difficult to insert and turn a key into a lock. Combination locks can prove even more troublesome. Most of us aren’t used to traumatic situations like a home invasion – we often aren’t prepared for the way our bodies will react.
This is where electronic locks come into play. Entering a code into a keypad is a simple enough task at any time. Pressing a finger against a sensor is even easier.
In a home invasion, you can store a handgun inside a nearby wall safe and have it ready to fire within minutes. You can also store extra ammunition. If you’re dealing with multiple attackers, it may take several shots to incapacitate each one. A single magazine of 10 or 12 rounds may be insufficient to deal with the threat. If you’re going to keep a weapon nearby to defend your home, you may as well ensure that you are defended against all credible threats, rather than only some of them.
The Protex FW-1814Z Biometric Wall Safe is a perfect example of quick access and security working together. With a biometric locking system capable of storing the fingerprints of every adult in your home and multiple shelves for storing additional weapons/ammunition, any gun owner can consider themselves prepared using this safe.
Another example of a quick-access wall safe is the Viking VS-52BL Biometric Fingerprint Hidden Wall Safe. The main advantage of wall safes is that they are hard for burglars to spot. Just put a picture or mirror in front of the VS-52BL, and it will be hard to find. It also benefits from a biometric lock and an electronic keypad, giving the owner options in a tense situation. And, of course, it is constructed from sturdy, pry-proof steel.
These are only two examples of wall safes that offer speed and convenience in an emergency. There are numerous other models that can achieve the same need. At long last, there’s no need to keep a gun under your pillow – with these safes you’ll be ready for anything, even in the middle of the night.
