gun box

Oh it’s on:

1:16 – Wait so the “electronic bells and whistles” are a positive feature?

1:18 – LOL WHO LET THIS SLIDE? –> “Sentinel is a standalone hi-fi speaker system allowing you to stream music from your smartphone”

1:43 – “Sentinel can easily be secured to the floor”  Sure but that long thing coming out of it is basically a big lever.  I want to see someone drop kick it while it’s secured to the floor.

gun-box-sentinelYou guys all know that I roll my eyes hard whenever I see an indiegogo.  If you’re interested in getting in on this one there’s a 25% off savings, making the Gun Box Sentinel $524.

Gun Box sent me the handgun one back in late 2014 which I reviewed.  Unfortunately I can’t stream the new Drake album out of it.

Apps, streaming music, electronics, biometrics… Thoughts?

COMMENT

GunBox was kind enough to send me one of these for my handgun:

If this is your first time hearing about the GunBox, it’s a stylish / functional way to store your handgun away from the hands those who you don’t grant access. Those who have access are able to get at the gun quickly.

You’ll see the pictures on their website and almost definitely think “wow that looks cool”. I’ve read other reviews on the GunBox and people always mentioned how well built it is. That’s the type of thing that’s impossible to tell from the pictures, but I definitely echo those claims. This thing feels like it was made by Apple, as in it just feels like quality when you first pull it out of the box. It’s exterior is aircraft grade aluminum, has great contours, and the lid nestles into the bottom half so nicely.

Excited, I hooked up the included wall charger to the GunBox, plugged it in and with my girlfriend looking over my shoulder swiped the RF wrist band over the top of the center where the logo is. Next, we heard the unlocking of the interior latch and the pssssssssst of the hydraulics releasing the lid and 2-3 seconds later we’re looking at the inside of it. We both were like “whoa” because it was cool. I continued to shut the lid then open it over and over with the wrist band for the next 5 minutes or so. The novelty never did wear off, but my girlfriend’s patience definitely did.

At this point I figured it was time to try the biometric abilities, so following the instructions included I pressed the unlabeled button on the inside of the lid, putting the GunBox into “learn mode”, shut the lid and programmed in my index finger. This was simple, and you can actually program in 100 different fingerprints. Excessive maybe since were talking about access to a gun haha but the capability is there. You can either just use the RF wristband (small RF sticker also included… RF ring available on the website) to open the box, or you can require RF plus a fingerprint for added security.

Head over to the GunBox website if you’re looking to purchase one, or want more information. I highly recommend picking one up if you’re in the market for an easy-but-restricted-access type lockbox for a handgun.

If anyone has any questions for me about the GunBox, let me know in the comments.

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?
