    Looks like a pretty good setup, though are those hinges exposed?

    That's cool but with no kids it's stored upright next to my bed. If I had kids this woud be a wise investment.

    Looks like a good idea, for some, but I'd never trust the 'Digital Lock'.... ever.

    It has a mechanical lock, not digital. No batteries.

    I just picked up a shotgun lock out of a police cruiser last week. I was looking at the shotlock product however I could not part with the $160 after finding the santacruz lock for a mere $10! Sure I have to add a little work to refurb it however I have all the components now and I'm still under 20 bucks.

    Picked up the aluminum lock portion of this at a local pull apart.

    I agree with the above btw, mechanical locks only. No key over rides or electric locks.

    The back up key is almost always complete junk.

    These would be great for those with kids or untrustworthy / risky people having access to your house, when grand-kids visit, bad neighborhoods, etc.

    Still need a sidearm for daytime locations, Me & the wife are in the living room right now (doing Christmas cards) & we both have or sidearms within reach.... always do.

    I will be picking one of these up. I kept seeing their version for shotgun, but always wanted to see something that was AR specific.

    I had some trouble with the company a while back so I am leery of order any big items ( it was more a comedy of errors and I did get my money back but still I am not dealing with them for a while).

    That all said it this can be opened fast it would be good if you have kids at home to have something hard hitting on hand.. That all said if I had to get to my rifle ( if I had one that is ..) I would be in deep crap as by that point I would have probable but close to 45 9mm rounds down range so if something in 223 comes to play then I am truly in the deep .

    Still like the idea and good way to fast store guns
