A Gun Safe Can Protect Your Guns And Your Family
'Tis the season for giving guns as gifts. But if you're considering giving a gun, also consider giving them a way to keep that gun safe.
At Advanced Lock Solutions in North Austin, they always see a bump in sales during the holidays. Gun safes are great gifts for gun owners. But they’re also seeing inquiries because of recent shootings in the news.
Gun expert Zachariah Earle says, "With all the stuff going on right now people are definitely concerned about the safety of their families and their kids and they want to be able to protect them and keep them protected from the guns as well."
A good safe will do just that with an interior especially laid out to safely hold your hunting rifles. And with the new digital locks you can punch the code and have the door open in a matter of seconds.
A gun safe is a solid investment. And the more solid the better. But the safes are so solid they could become a tipping hazard. Earle says, “Ideally you want it to be bolted to the floor so that it doesn't fall over as a safety hazard."
A good gun safe will keep your family safe -- and as a bonus -- keep your expensive guns safe from fire and theft.
