Because of recent and unfortunate events, there may soon be more guns in schools across America in the hands of teachers. Those guns need to be secured at all times, whether in a holster or inside of a gun safe.

On the surface, a biometric gun safe is the obvious answer to securing a firearm, but the poor reliability of these safes is well documented. Search for any biometric safe on Amazon and you will find many reviews complaining about the product not working as advertised.

Here are some of the issues you can run into with an electronically operated safe:

• Power failure- Total lockout.

• Electrostatic discharge (ESD)- Causes total system failure.

• Skin conditions can prevent access.

• Low battery – failure to open reading fingerprints.

• Many key pads/ biometric safe are prone to picking just watch it on YouTube.

• Lock and key – lock picking jeopardizes security.

• Water and moisture damage can cause malfunction.

• Temperature variation can cause malfunctions.

After considering these points, a biometric safe/ electronically operated safes may not be the best way to secure guns in schools. So, then what is the answer?

A mechanical safe.

But only the sturdiest, most reliable and tested gun safe should be brought on school grounds which is why we have created the Titan Pistol Vault.

The Titan Pistol Vault is a mechanical safe that has been around for more than a decade and has not failed any of its owners. Because it is mechanical and powder coated it is not susceptible to failure from water or moisture damage. There is also no lock and key system in place so the safe is only accessible by the individuals who possess the chosen safe code.

The Titan Pistol Vault has also been approved by the California Department of Justice. To win this approval the Titan Pistol Vault has undergone extensive and rigorous testing by an accredited and independent test lab. Some of these tests include locking mechanism manipulation, a drop test, an impact test, hacksaw test and force to open the lid test. It takes industrial steel cutting tools or an acetylene torch to cut open this safe and it can easily be mounted under desks or even inside of vehicles. I am confident that the Titan Pistol Vault will serve your needs.
