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.

Robert Siciliano: Do You Own a Safe? Why Not?

Approximately two million homes are burglarized every year. That’s one home every fifteen seconds or so. Police only catch one out of ten burglars, which means the bad guys do it over and over again. Burglaries result in over $4.5 billion in losses annually, or over $2000 for the average victim.

A safe can be had for under a hundred dollars, or up to several hundred, and can last forever.

You don’t need to be a convenience store, a jewelry store, or a bank to need a safe. If you keep money or credit cards in your house, you need a safe. If you have uninsured or uninsurable jewelry, you need a safe. If you have essential paper documents, like birth certificates, Social Security cards, insurance papers, stocks, bonds, or vehicle titles, you need a safe. Investing in a fireproof safe will also protect cash and valuables and save you the hassle of replacing important documents in case of a fire.

I’ve had four different safes over the past twenty years, because my needs have changed. While living at school and then in a small apartment, I had a portable, fireproof safe for documents and jewelry. (Yes, I wear gold jewelry, but that’s another story.) Then, when I owned a multifamily building, I upgraded to a medium-sized safe. And now that I have a family, I protect our belongings with a larger safe. There’s also a safe specifically for firearms, but we’ll get into that some other time.

I’ve always owned SentrySafe products . There are certain brands whose products always seem to work perfectly, right out of the box. Products that work so well, once you buy one, you’ll never have to replace it. That’s SentrySafe’s line of products.

SentrySafe is a family-owned business that has been making fire-resistant safes for over eighty years. I’m proud to be working with them on a campaign to introduce their new Big Bolt Safe. This little beast is sitting right here, bolted to my floor, as a handy thief repellent.

SentrySafe’s values — “Quality, Loyalty, Growth, and Innovation” — are evident in their products. These are terms I identify and agree with, as I’m German Shepherd-loyal, and innovation is what keeps my kids fed.

As a homeowner or apartment dweller, you know stuff happens. Your first concerns should be theft and fire prevention. You probably have home insurance, but instead of relying on a reactive solution to these issues, wouldn’t it be better to add a layer of protection, actively reducing your risk ahead of time, for a fraction of the cost of insurance? What do you think?
