Do You Need a Handgun Vault

If your first question is, “Why do I need a handgun vault?” Then you’re in the right place. Consider the following questions:

  • Do you carry a handgun?
  • Do you stay in hotels?
  • Do you drive in a car?  
  • Do you stay overnight with family or friends?
  • Do you fly with your firearm?
  • Do guests stay at your home who carry a handgun?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may need to purchase a handgun vault from Lockdown. Here’s why …

When to Use a Handgun Vault

Lockdown’s Handgun Vault is the perfect size for storing your firearm when traveling. (Always check reciprocity and gun laws in the states you are traveling through.) Using the included wrapped steel anti-theft cable, safely secure the Handgun Vault in your vehicle, hotel room or even friend’s home. If you’re traveling by plane, it meets TSA airline requirements for carrying a firearm in your checked luggage. Make sure you cable lock it to the frame of your bag before you fly.

If you have 2A visitors in your home, it’s a nice gesture to offer a place for them to store a firearm. Consider keeping a handgun vault in your guest room. This offers them a safe place to store a firearm or any other valuables. 

Choosing a Handgun Vault

Lockdown offers two types of Handgun Vaults in two different sizes, so you’ll need to make a few decisions. First, would you prefer a combination or keyed lock? Consider how you want to gain access to your firearm. Keyed handgun vaults arrive with two keys, while combination vaults allow you to create your own three number combination.

Next, what size do you need, large or compact? A large vault measures 6.5” W x 10”H x 1.75” D, while a compact’s dimensions are 5.625” W x 8.25” H x 1.75” D. Measure the size of your handgun to determine which size meets your needs.
