Talking with the Team: Quick Access Pistol Safe

Scott demonstrating the Quick Access Pistol Safe Introduce yourself…

I am Scott Alread, Senior Product Manager, Security and Gun Safes.  My primary role at SentrySafe is to provide product development direction that not only matches up with consumer needs, but industry trends.  This focus allows SentrySafe to develop outstanding products like the NEW Quick Access Pistol Safe.

Can you tell us a little about the Quick Access Pistol Safe?

The Quick Access Pistol Safe is a performance to value leader without question.  Utilizing 2.5mm, 12 gauge steel, an internal hinge system and a compression gas strut for single handed access; this unit is built for high level security and quick access.  The unit is accessed via a programmable personal code electronics package that is quick and quiet.  Our key pad lights up in non-glare blue, and provide zero feedback, allowing for quick and quiet access to your firearm.  Additionally, this safe comes with an override key in case of battery failure.  This guarantees that you will always be able to access your pistol.

Where did the idea for this new product come from? 

This product hit our product development cycle through consumer research and an in-depth review of current pistol solutions on the market.  We knew that if we could build a truly, heavy-duty, high security unit that provided quick and quiet access; we would have a winner.  I can honestly say that we have accomplished that goal and then some.

Who would you recommend the Quick Access Pistol Safe to?  

This product works for every pistol enthusiast looking for a safe way to secure and store a firearm near where it may be needed most.  The Quick Access Pistol Safe is designed to function in or out of a drawer, making it ideal for security needs around the home or office.

If you had to leave our readers remembering one thing about the Quick Access Pistol Safe, what would it be? 

When it matters most, the NEW Quick Access Pistol Safe from SentrySafe stands ready to help you defend your family, your property and your home.  SentrySafe, 80 years of history and still going strong.

SHOT Show 2011: Closing thoughts….

The show is almost over, in fact for me it is over. I am writing this as I bounce around in the air somewhere over the Rocky Mountains… I am not sure when I got off the plane and on to a rollercoaster, ugh.

I have said before SentrySafe is a very unique company to work for. They recognize and encourage good ideas from any and every level of the company. The Home Defense Center is a perfect example of that philosophy in action. The Idea for the product came from our National Accounts Manager for Shooting Sports Matt Sobolewski who is an avid hunter and shooter. He identified a need for this product in his own home.

Our product team looked into the concept carefully and Scott Alread our Gun Safe product manager reached out to shooters and hunters and it turned out they were on to something. A lot of gun owners had been looking for a solution like this. That’s when our engineers and designers got to work and created the product we have been talking about so much over the past few days.

All this happened at SentrySafe’s home base in Rochester NY. This product was designed by American workers and will be built by them as well. It’s no small thing these days to be a manufacturer that has not only survived but grown and even added jobs.

We have been gratified and energized by the response to our new products. Because to the folks on our team these are not just products, these are hours of hard work, dedication and a tradition of American excellence that started with the company’s founder John D Brush over 80 years ago.

These are good people that I am thankful to work with. We appreciate all your support and patronage.

Be Safe.


SHOT Show 2011: Day One…

Today was the culmination of a lot of hard work for the SentrySafe team. It was the opening day of the Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show!  Starting January 18th, 60,000 industry professionals from across the US and 75 countries around the world will gather in Las Vegas to see the latest advancements in firearms and hunting equipment.  Over a thousand companies will be showing off their best products and presenting new industry technologies for 2011.

SentrySafe was no different. Today our team unveiled two exciting and innovative new products that will create a new standard for home defense. Our new Quick Access Pistol Safe and Home Defense Center have been generating a lot of excitement in our both and have brought in folks from around the world to see it in person. We even had a visit from the Outdoor Channel’s hit show “What the Stuff “. They interviewed our very own Scott Alread about these two new products and will be doing a feature on them in the next few months. We will have more info on when you can see the episode, as we get closer to airtime.

It has been very gratifying to see all the excitement around our new Home Defense products. The team in Rochester NY has worked many long hours to create a high quality, innovative product that would serve the needs of the security conscious consumer. We feel we have a real winner on our hands with these products. Check back on the Safe Zone soon for a complete rundown on these new products and other updates from the SHOT show.
