What are the Advantages of a Pistol Lock Box?

Pistol lock boxes are a type of safe specifically designed to secure handguns. Unlike the big nature of a larger gun safe or custom vault door for a room, a lock box is small in size and not only convenient for moves and travel but also safe and secure in preventing unauthorized users from accessing your firearms.

After choosing a handgun for home defense, it’s important to store it in the right pistol box and that’s where Fort Knox can help. Here are just a few advantages for owning and utilizing a pistol box.

Small, secure design while easily accessible

Owning a pistol box provides a safe place to store firearms from unauthorized users. It also protects people in the home and surrounding areas. A lock box is small enough to secure and hide firearms in your home, vehicle, closet, or a wall. If desired, a pistol lock box can also be mounted in your car, camper or on furniture. 

Fort Knox offers a wide selection of secure pistol box options: Original Pistol Box, Personal Pistol Box, Auto Pistol Box, Shotgun Security Box and the CAB Security box. The main difference between them is whether they are foam or carpet inside and the overall box dimensions.

Keeping your firearms separate from other valuables

When storing a pistol in a lock box, you can easily separate firearms from other valuable items such as jewelry and documents that you would store in a safe or vault. With a pistol box, your firearms are easily accessible while other belongings stay secure and untouched. 

Keeping your firearm close by in a pistol lock box rather than in a standard large safe in a different room increases your odds of protecting what matters most.  

Pistol Box Production and Design

In addition to the small and accessible design, pistol lock boxes are more affordable for any firearm owner. Fort Knox lock boxes are created securely with foam or carpet for protection. Some boxes are also able to store extra mags in addition to the firearm. All boxes are built with a 10 gauge body and a 3/16″ plate door locked with a 5-button Simplex lock. 

These features benefit the user with one of the most secure boxes in the industry backed by a lifetime warranty. Contact us today to learn more and find the pistol box size that fits your needs.
