Safety Net

By The Editors

Regardless which side of the gun control debate you fall on, we can probably all agree on one thing: it’s probably best if kids can’t get their hands on them.

And that, in a ballistic nutshell, is why The Gun Box exists.

Designed by an engineering team responsible for, among other things, nuclear facility safety, the Box is a mini-safe for almost every type of handgun on the market (great for a Glock or Sig Sauer 9mm, but not, say, a .50 caliber revolver).

Each box is equipped with an RFID scanner that responds to a personalized chip in a wristband. Just wave your hand over the box and you’re ready to roll.

This means you, and you alone, have access to your gun.

Advanced TGB models feature additional safety measures: fingerprint scanners. GPS tracking. Vibration sensors. Instant phone alerts.

And The Gun Box is pretty tough. Cast from aircraft-strength aluminum alloy shell. Handles heat up to 1,000 degrees.

You can mount the Box in almost any direction. And advanced models came with built-in USB ports for recharging your tablets and smartphones.

So fire away.
