With the home-defense and concealed carry markets driving firearms sales, it is no surprise that the interest in fast-access pistol safes has also increased. The fact is, if you own a gun, there’s no excuse for not having a suitable gun safe at home. Fast-access safes combine the security of steel with the advantage of storing a loaded handgun safely where it can be quickly accessed if needed.

Now two new devices from SentrySafe can make things even easier. The company’s Quick Access Pistol Safe was already available with an easy, push-button combination lock, but now the company has added a reliable biometric feature that instantly opens the safe with just a scan of your fingertip. The buttons are lit so they are easy to see in the dark, and the top lid is pry resistant and features a compression gas strut for hands-free, whisper-quiet opening. The safe is large enough for most any handgun and fits easily in most drawers. The interior is padded to protect your gun, and the safe is made from tamper-resistant, 12-gauge steel for security.

For travel use, SentrySafe also makes a smaller and more convenient Portable Pistol Safe that includes a carry handle and a steel security cable for attaching the safe to a solid object to prevent theft. This allows you to safely transport your firearm in a vehicle or for air travel in your checked luggage. The Portable Pistol Safe is key-lock operated and is also made from steel with a pry-resistant, top-opening lid and a padded interior.
