A firearm is the ultimate solution to any life threatening situation; however, this ultimate solution requires what we call, “The three A’s of firearms survival”:
Any firearm must be readily accessible, whether it is a handgun, rifle or shotgun. This means accessibility from any location in the house within seconds. If your firearm is locked up in your gun safe in the basement, and your seated in your recliner in the living, when the break in occurs, your failure to plan has forced you into an unarmed defensive situation with one or more possibly armed attackers.
However, every firearm must be stored safely and in accessible to children and unauthorized adults. An effective way to address practical accessibility as well as safety concerns is with the use of a “Gun Vault”. These are individual battery operated handgun safes. They are roughly the size of a shoe box, and they have a “No-Eyes” needed control panel with an optical fingerprint sensor as well as touch-operated activation accessibility. They are designed with contoured grooves and raised dots/buttons on the top the box. The grooves allow you to find the dot/buttons in total darkness, and the dots/buttons allow you to punch in your exclusive pre-programmed access code or it reads your pre-programmed fingerprint, after which the electronic front door pops open to quickly remove a loaded firearm.
They can be temporarily placed or affixed near your recliner and/or other locations throughout your home for an armed emergency.
