Imagine: you’re sitting at your desk one cold night when you hear a scratching, a clicking and finally a banging. Suddenly, there comes a crash. Your front door was just kicked open. You’re on the first floor, but your wife and children are sound asleep upstairs. You have to do something.
The door to your study is slightly ajar, but wind from the open front door blows it open. A man armed with a rather large knife stands before you. Adrenaline rushes through your body, causing your hands to shake. Just a week ago you might have been in real trouble when trying to get at your revolver. Your shaky hands and panic-stricken mind would no doubt have struggled to get past your old vault, and you would have had to open a desk drawer just to get at the gun safe. But not today. Today you have the GunVault SpeedVault Biometric Fingerprint Pistol Safe. This safe is mounted on the inside wall of your desk, right next to your leg and within easy reaching distance. You press a finger down on the scanner and the safe drops open, presenting your gun at 45 degree angle, which is perfect for a quick draw. You pull the gun and the home intruder drops the knife and raises his hands.
This is the beauty of the SpeedVault. Whether you pick the biometric fingerprint model as I just described or the normal digital version where you enter a 4 digit code to pop open the safe, you’re going to get an extremely easy to use gun safe that gives you FAST access to your handgun. We first got to see the SpeedVault at SHOT Show (video of our interview with GunVault’s Danny Lovio talking with our product specialist Trevor above). They showed off a few other safes as well, but it was the SpeedVault that really stole the show.
I just got to take a better look at the GunVault SpeedVault in person, and I can honestly say it really impressed me. It’s not terribly heavy, so if you’re just going to leave it sitting on a table without mounting it, the SpeedVault won’t be as good an option as some of the other great GunVault safes, but if you choose to mount it on a desk, nightstand or possibly even in your car, the SpeedVault truly shines. The quick access you get is just perfect for drawing your handgun when you need it. The interior foam lining will keep your gun snugly held so it doesn’t get scratched, and the mount is super easy to use, so you’ll have it perfectly placed in no time.
With the SpeedVault, GunVault has shown they go far beyond most safe manufacturers. Most gun safes are only concerned with keeping your guns safe, but GunVault also wants to keep YOU safe. Having your firearms close at hand gives you the chance to defend yourself should the need arise. Take a look at the GunVault SpeedVault and I’m sure you’ll never store your handgun in another safe again.
