With the rise of concealed carry permits continually reaching record-breaking highs among Americans, one thing that can so easily be left out is the concern for safety. Whether you use concealed carry ankle holsters or store your gun at home, any gun-owning person should look no further than these 3 ways to safely store a firearm.
Locking Safety Mechanisms
Trigger locks are by far the cheapest way to stash your gun during periods of infrequent use or while traveling. These types of locks come with a set of keys so that only you can access your gun and use it, even if the safe that it is in is compromised. Trigger locks are very secure because the mechanism comes into direct contact with the trigger, blocking the action of the firearm from moving at all. Some locks even come stock on the guns from the manufacturer or dealer, so look into that next time you plan to purchase a gun.
Gun cases are not only an efficient way to take your gun from your house to the shooting range, some are also approved for varied forms of transportation. Used in tandem with a trigger lock, a gun case is a great way to keep your guns clean and secure while traveling long or short distances.
Contrary to cases, these are not meant for travel but for long-term, secure storage in your home. The only downside to a nice safe is the financial commitment. However, they are called “safes” for a reason. Some are even fire-resistant, meaning that even if your house burns to the ground the safe could be left totally unscathed!
With the many options on the market today, safely storing your firearm does not mean you will be sacrificing comfort or style whether you plan on using these things for deep-storage, travel, or day-to-day use.
