Safety

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.

With all the political hubbub out there about firearms, I know that there are MANY people who do not own a firearm, but are now seriously considering getting one. And to those people, I strongly urge you to do so. Our 2nd amendment rights are under attack. So now is the time to exercise your rights.

Being able to defend yourself and your family is ultimately your responsibility. Hence having the means and ability to do so is paramount.

But before you rush out there and buy the first new shiny gun you see, you should consider these tips. They will help make your buying experience easier and more rewarding.

– Ask yourself if you could pull the trigger
My first firearms instructor once told me, “Do NOT point your gun at anything you are not ready to destroy.” He was absolutely right.

For those of you who are considering purchasing your first firearm for self-defense, you need to do something. The first thing you need to do, before rushing to a gun store or even looking online, is to stop and think for a bit.

Could you pull the trigger if you had to? Could you possibly take another human life?

If you have some doubts now about whether you could potentially kill another human being should you be in a life threatening event, those doubts will most likely be compounded and magnified in a high stress incident. Many times people react to highly stressful situations much differently than how they anticipate they would. Some people may “freeze up”, hide, or run. The whole “fight or flight” thing kicks in.

Unfortunately for many people, they don’t know how they will react until the event is happening. But like I said, doubts now are a good indicator of what you might do in those events.

“Even if I can’t bring myself to pull the trigger, I could get a gun and just hold it. The threat of a gun will scare them off!” you say.

BAD idea! While the mere sight of a gun is often time enough to send a criminal fleeing, there are times where the sight of a gun could escalate the situation. The bad guy may try to take it from you, or worse, he may pull out his gun. And in that case, chances are strong that he WILL pull the trigger resulting in a very bad day for you.

I’m assuming that since you are still reading, you have thought it out and decided that if you and or your friends/family were in danger, you could defend yourself with deadly force. Training and range time will significantly help to build your confidence. So if you have some concerns about this, I HIGHLY recommend regular training with your firearm.

– Determine the purpose of your firearm
Firearms are tools. There are different types of guns for different types of jobs. So decide what your gun will be used for. Do you want a pistol that you can conceal for self-defense? Were you thinking shotgun? Rifle? There are pros and cons to each type of firearm, so YOU have to determine what is best for you.

Pistols are obviously much easier to conceal. Rifles are better for shooting at a distance. Shotguns are the most versatile. Determine what you need, and what will work for you based upon your situation.

For self-defense and EDC carry,Maybe a pistol or revolver. They are easy to conceal. A lot of folks like shotguns for home defense. And if you are a beginning hunter, a rifle is probably the way you want to go. But again, you need to decide which you prefer and which will help you the most in your situation.

– Decide which firearm is right for you
When it comes to firearms or calibers, what is most important is what YOU feel comfortable with. A 44 magnum (think Dirty Harry Callahan) won’t do you much good if the gun is unwieldy, the recoil is too much for you, or you simply do not feel comfortable with it.

So before you buy anything, I’d encourage you to shoot some different firearms and different calibers. See what feels right for you. If you can’t find a gun range that will allow you to test fire or rent, see if you have friends or co-workers who shoot, and tag along with them.

And if all else fails, I would find multiple online videos and watch them. Get a general consensus of the firearm. In fact, I would encourage you to do this IN ADDITION to test firing. You might see a few firearms that you want to try out.

How much is your life worth?
To me, when it comes to firearms, quality matters. My life may someday depend on it! So ask yourself, how cheap am I willing to go on a tool that could someday save my life? You should budget yourself for a decent, quality firearm.

You have the benefit of the internet and YouTube. Do some research. Try out different manufacturers before purchasing one. Shoot a Glock, a Smith& Wesson, a Springfield, etc and decide which one works for you.

Remember, this is an investment that could save your life someday.

– Skill with a firearm can go rusty
Ok, you made a purchase that you are happy with and managed to put some rounds down range without shooting your eye out. However, that does not mean you are good to go. You need to build your skill level up. You do this by spending time at the range practicing.

If you have children, teach them firearm safety! Also keep them safe by putting each weapon in a Titan Pistol or Compact Vault!!

A Little about us

When Fast is not fast enough, Titan Security Products presents to you, the most innovative and versatile, Gun safe, firearm safety device, handgun safe, pistol safes on the market today! It has earned several US patents for its originality and uniqueness.

FIREARMS SHOULD BE UNLOADED WHEN NOT ACTUALLY IN USE
Firearms should be loaded only when you are in the field or on the target range or shooting area, ready to shoot. When not in use, firearms and ammunition should be secured in a safe place, separate from each other. It is your responsibility to prevent children and unauthorized adults from gaining access to firearms or ammunition.

Whenever you handle a firearm or hand it to someone, always open the action immediately, and visually check the chamber, receiver and magazine to be certain they do not contain any ammunition. Always keep actions open when not in use. Never assume a gun is unloaded — check for yourself! This is considered a mark of an experienced gun handler!

DON’T RELY ON YOUR GUN’S “SAFETY”
Don’t Rely On Your Gun’s Safety ,Treat every gun as though it can fire at any time. The “safety” on any gun is a mechanical device which, like any such device, can become inoperable at the worst possible time. Besides, by mistake, the safety may be “off” when you think it is “on.” The safety serves as a supplement to proper gun handling but cannot possibly serve as a substitute for common sense. You should never handle a gun carelessly and assume that the gun won’t fire just because the “safety is on.”

Never touch the trigger on a firearm until you actually intend to shoot. Keep your fingers away from the trigger while loading or unloading. Never pull the trigger on any firearm with the safety on the “safe” position or anywhere in between “safe” and “fire.” It is possible that the gun can fire at any time, or even later when you release the safety, without you ever touching the trigger again.

Never place the safety in between positions, since half-safe is unsafe. Keep the safety “on” until you are absolutely ready to fire.

Regardless of the position of the safety, any blow or jar strong enough to actuate the firing mechanism of a gun can cause it to fire. This can happen even if the trigger is not touched, such as when a gun is dropped. Never rest a loaded gun against any object because there is always the possibility that it will be jarred or slide from its position and fall with sufficient force to discharge. The only time you can be absolutely certain that a gun cannot fire is when the action is open and it is completely empty. Again, never rely on your gun’s safety. You and the safe gun handling procedures you have learned are your gun’s primary safeties.

Children find guns fascinating. Keeping guns forbidden and mysterious only increases their allure. Let your kids handle your guns with your permission and under your supervision. Show them how to check whether the chamber and magazine are empty. Let them point the gun in a safe direction. Teach them now that the only time they are ever to touch a trigger is when they want the gun to go off.

The more often you take your children shooting, the more practiced they’ll become in handling guns safely. At the range, insist that muzzles point up, down, or downrange—always. Keep control of the ammunition yourself, and dole out shells one at a time. Kids will be scrupulously careful about muzzle control until they fire a shot. In the excitement of hearing the gun go off, they will turn to you, swinging the gun, or drop it down so it points at their toes. If the gun is empty, it’s a teachable moment, not a potential tragedy. Insist on eye and ear protection, and emphasize its importance by always wearing it yourself.

You’re trying to instill lifelong safety habits, and nothing you say speaks as loudly as your own actions when you and your child hunt together. Handle your own guns with extra emphasis on safety. While we’re at it, boats, ATVs, tree stands, and motor vehicles can be just as deadly as guns if used carelessly.

Gun violence has a devastating impact on American children and teenagers. Over 2,700 children and teens (ages 0-19) are shot and killed and nearly 14,500 are shot and injured every year – that’s an average of 47 American children and teens shot every day.1 And the effects of gun violence extend far beyond those struck by a bullet: gun violence shapes the lives of the millions of children who witness it, know someone who was shot, or live in fear of the next shooting.

A gun is a dangerous weapon to keep at home which is why one must exert caution when using it or storing it at home. If your gun falls into the wrong hands, it could be detrimental to you and your family.

A lot of people get a gun license so that they can defend themselves and their loved ones in the case of an attack but a lot of times this plan backfires because the gun is not kept in a secure location.

This is why people often install gun safes at their home so that they can keep their gun protected and can enjoy a peaceful and sound sleep every night. However, buying a gun safe has both pros and cons which every gun owner should know about before purchasing it.

 

 

In honor of National Suicide Prevention Week ,

Here are some great safety tips on keeping your firearms and everyone in your family safe.

Safe-storage. Here is a hopeful fact: among firearm-owning households, those that store their firearms safely have a 60 percent lower suicide rate. This reduction arises because members of the household (such as adolescents) who are not authorized to use the firearms, can no longer easily access them. It also seems that some impulsive handgun suicides are averted by the simple need to take a few minutes to perform several precise manual actions to unlock, load, and use the firearm. This gives the individual time to reflect upon his or her actions. If just a quarter of households kept their guns from a suicidal person, it is estimated that 3600 to 3900 American lives would be saved in one year.
What constitutes “safe storage”? Simply hiding the weapon is not good enough. The firearm should be stored and locked away.

It is a common misconception , even among some healthcare professionals ,that if a gun is locked away in a safe, an individual in crisis will “find another way.” But this is not the case; if a person’s preferred method of suicide is not available, most do not substitute another method. Even when they do, other methods are less fatal. In short, the option of having your firearm locked away and not avaiable increases the chances of survival.
A gun makes an impulsive, irreversible choice far too easy. Limiting access to guns during fleeting, high-risk moments can save lives

5.0 out of 5 starsThe best safe for handguns!
ByThe Rockon.
I have spent many months researching handgun safes, but I finally settled on The Titan safe for many reasons:

First, it works with a Simplex lock that is mechanical and highly stable. I wanted something that I could rely on 100% of the time and the only safes that meet this criteria are purely mechanical safes so that eliminates all biometric safes, anything that uses a battery and quite frankly most of the safes on the market.

Second, I can open the safe and have the gun in my hand ready to shoot within 3 seconds due to the unique design. The safe has a holster which the gun sits in. As you open the door the holster comes out and presents the gun to you. There is no faster safe that I am aware of. When seconds count in say a home defense situation, the extra money you pay for this safe is well worth it as it could save your life someday.

Third, I had a tough time trying to figure out the best place to mount some of the other guns safes that I was looking at(such as Fort Knox) which would be accessible to me and not accessible to my young children. I think the Titan Safe has the most flexibility in terms of mounting.

Fourth, I have the option of having a mounting bracket inside my car (meets California guidelines with Ammo Box) and moving the safe from my home to my car without having to purchase two safes.

Fifth, the safe comes with a universal holster that will accept a full sized handgun, revolver and even guns with lasers and tactical lights. The holster very easily moves up and down as well as side to side making it fully customizable to your needs. I was able to move the holster in less than 5 minutes because it was hitting the rear sights of my gun once in a while when I opened it.

Lastly, this is a quality product. It is a nice looking safe that is rock solid. As I was doing my research I called the company and had the opportunity to speak with the inventor of the safe. The conversations that I had with him really made my decision easier and I encourage anyone thinking about purchasing the Titan safe to give the company a call. This is a great product that is simple to use and simple to install. You can’t go wrong with the Titan safe!

Top 3 Reasons you need a gun safe

If you thought that a gun safe is only meant to keep your firearms safe to prevent theft or accidents in your home, you’re wrong. A gun safe is specially designed to do a lot more than that. There are very important reasons as to why you should spend your money buying one of these bulky and heavily secured safes.

Read on to find 3 good reasons as to why you should buy a gun safe. You’ll be shocked to discover some crucial reasons for buying a gun safe that you never thought really mattered.

1.To Protect Your Firearms From Theft
Gun safes that are equipped with advanced security features such as multiple lockers and double steel doors make them impenetrable to criminals. You’ve probably heard of cases where burglars steal firearms from homes and use them in criminal activities.

Furthermore, guns are valuable items and of course, you cannot risk losing your hard earned cash. Some guns are even of sentimental value and you surely can’t afford losing them to some ruthless thieves.

2.If you go through the statistics, you’ll find out that thousands of children are killed each year because of poorly stored firearms. As a parent, it’s your responsibility to ensure your kids’ safety by prohibiting them from accessing your firearms at home. This is where the gun safe comes in handy.

When you buy a gun safe, you practically eliminate the chances of accidental firings, preventing unintentional killings or injuries. In other words, they are child-proof.

3.To Have Quick Access To Your Firearms
If you possess a gun to protect your home from intruders, then you know how important quick access to the gun is.

Most gun safes have locks that can easily be opened in split seconds. Furthermore, if you’ve been keeping your firearms in different storage cases with different locks, you might not have quick access to them as you’ll be required to use a key each time.
