How to Safely Store Self-Defense Firearms at Home

Melissa Bachman |

This goes above and beyond by also teaching kids, parents and the community the importance of firearm safety, education, and safe handling.Although keeping guns locked up is incredibly important, a common

question exists for many gun owners in regards to home protection and self-defense. If an intruder busts through your door in the middle of the night, the question is
how will you defend yourself if everything is locked up tight? Nobody has the time to run to a big safe, enter in a code and try and get to his or her guns and ammo if they hear someone breaking into their home in the heat of the moment. Luckily technology truly saves us here. I installed a Winchester Safes Defender RFiD handgun safe next to my bed and the technology is truly remarkable. This safe allows for instant touch free access a variety of ways.

I personally love using the decal that resembles a sticker. You can place this anywhere that is convenient. I stuck it on the back of my phone and then slipped the case back on. Now you can’tsee the decal but it’s at the ready anytime I need it. Most of us keep our phone on us at all times, so this works very well. First of all, no child would know my phone is the key to the safe, and secondly most of us never let our phone out of our sight so now this can be used to our advantage. At night, Ileave my phone plugged in next to my bed like the vast majorities of people do. In the event of a home invasion I simply swipe my phone over the safe and it opens in an instant. They also have a key fob and a programmable keypad that gives you an alternative entry with a custom 4-6 digit code.

Firearm safety comes down to education. Ensuring gun owners understand the importance of securing their firearms and ammunition and also spreading that message to kids or people who are not as familiar with guns. An incredibly large number of people are becoming firearm owners for the first time, so now is as important as ever to spread the word about securing firearms in the home. Technology is making it easier for us in a variety of ways, but we still need to be responsible.

Winchester Ammunition’s W Train & Defend makes it simple to choose the self defense ammunition and training rounds we need by creating easy to understand packaging and rounds built specifically for self defense. Now Winchester Safes is using the RFiD technology to keep our firearms and ammo at the ready within seconds. Don’t make the mistake of leaving you firearms out and available to the world.

Just like the Project Childsafe’s saying: Own It. Respect It. Secure It.
