• The Importance of Locking Your Gun Up

    From the very first day you bring your son or daughter home from the hospital, you work hard to ensure that your little one stays healthy, happy, and safe. One important safeguard that you should never overlook is locking up any weapons, especially guns. Just like the children in this video share, locking up a gun is a simple yet crucial responsibility that every partner needs to take seriously.

    Locking up a gun in the home doesn’t have to be a difficult nor an expensive task. Once you have installed a gun safe, simply remove the ammunition from the firearm and store them separately before double checking that the gun safe has been properly locked.

  • Ensuring Your Guns Are Stored Safely

     

    One of the biggest responsibilities you have to take on when becoming a gun owner is keeping your new firearm secure and out of the reach of any children in the home. Here at Armstrong Lock & Security Products we have been helping clients safely store their firearms and can help you learn more about selecting the right gun safe . Take a look at the information below for tips on ensuring that your guns are stored safely:

    Begin by Adequately Locking Your Firearm
    Before ever  placing your weapon into a gun safe , it is essential that you lock it properly and empty it of any ammunition. Guns vary quite widely when it comes to the manner by which they are locked, and you can learn more about adequately locking your specific type of gun by consulting with a local law enforcement agent or the retailer that initially sold you the firearm.

    Separate Gun and Ammunition
    As we previously suggested, it is incredibly important to empty a gun of its ammo before you place it into a gun safe. Once the weapon and the bullets, clips, or magazines have been separated from one another, be sure to place them in two separate storage units. Keeping these items apart makes it far more difficult for the weapon to be accidentally used or mistakenly misfired by a visitor to your home or a younger resident.

    Limit Gun Safe Accessibility
    Another essential part of ensuring that your guns are stored safely is purchasing a gun safe that contains a reliable entry system. Whether you access the safe through a number combination, a key, or a more advanced technique like a biometrics sensor, it is essential that the accessibility is limited. Only you and those trained to use the weapon should have access to the key to the safe or know the combination used to open it.

    Here at  Armstrong Lock & Security Products we have been helping clients find smart and secure solutions to gun storage for decades.
