Gun Box Handgun Storage

Keeping little-ones’ booger hooks out of your handgun bang switches. Looking cool while doing it:

Lots more details, and you can get in on the initial run of these things over at the indiegogo campaign page.

The fit and finish looks incredible.  I get the hidden hinges, and the strength of the aircraft aluminum are impressive… but I’d really like to see this thing hit once with a sledge hammer, then see what’s up.  That said, this shouldn’t be a “safe”, but rather just a safer place to store a handgun if you have kids or other people running around your house.  Thieves are going to find a way into anything no matter what.

2:21 – The RFID wristband and ring are possibly the gaudiest things I’ve ever seen.  I’d probably try cutting the chip out and sticking it underneath my watch clasp or something if it’s really small.  The renders of the rings and the wristband in the indiegogo campaign are actually nicer looking, but still not my thing.  I’d rather just have a keyfob, be able to program it to an existing RFID keyfob I have, or baller status would be programmable compatibility with an owners subdermal RFID implant haha.

2:29 – Phone notifications and GPS tracking when someone tries to mess with your gun box.  See when your gun box ends up, grab some buddies with guns and see whats up?

Pricing:

  • $180 (Retail – $240) – Basic.. only has the RFID scanner
  • $225 (Retail – $300) – Biometric scanner and RFID scanner
  • $390 (Retail – $420) – GPS tracking, Biometric scanner, RFID scanner (Need to pay for GPS monitoring.. no idea how much that is)

Gun-BoxThe introductory pricing is really reasonable if you ask me.  Even the retail pricing isn’t bad at all for what you’re getting.  Sure there are cheaper storage solutions, but none are as cool.  In the end, isn’t the point just to try to look as cool as possible, as often as possible in life before we die?

Thoughts?

No, Mike. It is to be as cool as possible and function as flawlessly as we can.

But that said, this thing is cool. One thing though.. Where is the manual entry in case the power goes out on it or it fries?

Sweet music. Makes me wanna make out with a chick at a dubstep bar.

That’s a legit question. You can’t really mail it back to them with a loaded gun inside.

i too, would like to know where the manual entry is. But would that said, you think it would create a stress point for someone to gain entry if say they take the whole box?

This would be useful if it had an alarm clock to make it look like a radio/alarm clock or such.

Gps defeated by putting it in the truck of your car after you have stolen it, yay!

The dude in the commercial should just put his gun under his mattress at night and then lock it up or holster it during the day. Problem solved.

Send one to Schuyler Towne. That’s the real test.

I think this would pass for a wifi router, especially with the USB cables coming out of it.

Honestly, this is the easiest way to sell people on the fence, to get a gun. Brilliant. We want as many non-gun-owners as possible to pick up their first gun. This will help.

Although the USB ports might be overkill.

Ah hell should give it wireless support to so it can update it’s status on Twitter too.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. “I am being stolen.” “I am in a trunk.” “I am now owned by a meth head.”

Or in your case you could have it announce, “Free bottle of Old Pogue If You Return Me.” LAWL.

RFID is easy enough to skim and then dupe, and biometrics are the easiest thing to spoof these days. The iPhone 5 has been out what, a week, and they’ve already beaten it’s biometrics with a trick as old as James Bond?

Color me unimpressed. Most of the nightstand safes have the same problem. Either they’re too light and can just be run off with to smash late or, they’re too hard to open in a hurry (key? orientation-specific print scanner? COMBO LOCK? HAH. Half the people can’t crank up their car in a hurry, much less open a safe in the dark!) and you’d be better off sleeping with a holster on.

It’s a good idea. The point is to defeat the “casual” crook, meth head or kid, not the professionals. It’s a split difference idea.
