We are seeing many new gun safes with many fancy features. Text messages to alert you when the safe is touched or opened, text to open, biometric fingerprint readers, voice commands. All of these fancy new features have their own problems.

The first problem with these safes is that a lot of them emit bright lights and loud noises. The last thing you want to do is alert an intruder to your location and the location of your safe. Let alone let them know that you have a gun at all.

The next problem is that they all either take batteries or must be charged. The issue with batteries and charging is that they fail. The last thing you want when reaching for your gun in the case of emergency and realizing that your unit is not charged to open or that the batteries have died.

Biometrics are unreliable as well, we have seen people try multiple times to open a safe with their programmed fingerprint only to have it fail multiple times and then lock them out. This happens due to sweat as well. You may not be able to get in when you are sweating or shaking which are common in emergency situations. The last thing you need is to not be able to access your safe because of these failures.

Text alerts will be unreliable, what if your phone is off? What if the battery is not charged? What if you are in a meeting? A movie? On an airplane? The What If’s are endless.

With an all mechanical safe, like the tried and true Titan Pistol Vault…none of these issues will be a concern. The all-mechanical safe will open when you need it to – every single time. All we ask is that you practice your code and opening it until it becomes muscle memory. It’s like riding a bike. Simple. That is exactly what you and your family will need at moments when it really counts.

The FBI has released data in regards to violent crime in 2018. The US has been on a downward trend as far as violent crime goes, since 2016. Yet, more people are buying guns. It is the responsible gun owners that we applaud, that are buying guns in the case of an emergency. According to the report, there was a decrease in nearly EVERY type of violent crime.

In looking at a 10-year trend, violent crimes are down nearly 10% from 2009 through 2018, truly wonderful. in 2018, homicides with firearms are down 7% since 2017. Furthermore, only 2% of crimes committed were with riffles, as opposed to 11% using knives.

HOWEVER…

The gun death rate in the US is much higher than in most other nations, particularly developed nations. But it is still far below the rates in several Latin American nations, according to a study by researchers at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington.

The US gun death rate was 10.6% per 100,000 in 2016. That was far higher than in countries such as Canada (2.1 per 100,000) and Australia (1.0), as well as European nations such as France (2.7), Germany (0.9) and Spain (0.6). But the rate in the U.S. was much lower than in El Salvador (39.2 per 100,000 people), Venezuela (38.7), Guatemala (32.3), Colombia (25.9) and Honduras (22.5), the study found. Overall, the US ranked 20th in its gun fatality rate.

We can still do better. If you are a responsible gun owner, please keep your gun locked away very safely. Of course, we recommend the Titan Pistol Vault if you own a handgun for self-protection. You will abide by the laws and keep your gun safe from strangers and children.

Always stay safe and stay positive.

According to the Charlotte Observer, A 5-year-old girl died after she was shot in a South Carolina home Monday, the North Charleston Police Department said.

Police called the deadly incident an “accidental shooting,” WCBD reported.

Officers responded to shots fired call just after 3:30 p.m., according to WCSC. Up to four unsupervised children were inside the home when the shooting occurred, per the TV station. Police said the kids were playing with a gun they found in the home, WCIV reported.

This is just another tragedy that happened today that could have been different if the firearm was put away safely. Children are always very curious so taking away the curiosity and having the firearm locked away in a Titan Gun Vault with a passcode that the children don’t know can keep everyone safe all the time. Tragedies like this can always have a different outcome. Keep our children safe.

Critics have strong, passionate arguments that guns have no place in an educational setting. Their rebuttals are emotionally charged and driven by their moral belief systems. Some of their concerns are fear-based, that too many guns and bullets would be flying across classroom halls causing injury or fatalities. Some who lobby for responsible gun control have had the unfortunate experience of being a victim of gun violence.

Yes, it is true, guns in the wrong hands can harm or end a life. Likewise, in the right hands, they can protect and save lives. The challenge is in identifying and distinguishing between those individuals.

Defining responsible gun ownership is paramount. With such freedom comes great responsibility. Our society has put blind trust in the individual who purchases a firearm. The result is a lack of trust toward gun owners. This is where legislation has an important role.

As we address the gaps regarding gun ownership — education, certification, registration, and background checks — to the point where the public has faith that those with guns are going to act responsibly, then the fear that they will use firearms improperly will diminish.

Addressing mental health is complicated. We are no more able to control guns than we can rein in the dysfunction of the human mind. The first step in addressing mental illness is by identifying factors in our society that perpetuate instability in an already fragile individual. Educators should be utilized as a great resource in addressing this critical mental health piece known as social and emotional literacy.

Statistics show that schools are the No. 1 target for random shooters. As difficult as it is, the time has come to fully explore armed staff on school grounds. Parents hold teachers accountable for nurturing positive outcomes in their children, especially a safe environment.

Preventing a teacher from the ability to carry a concealed weapon magnifies the vulnerability of themselves and the children in their care. We must ask ourselves how our current or developing legislation is going to save our students and faculty from harm.

Until we find realistic ways to protect our classrooms all we can do is duck and pray. I ask you: Is that the best we can do for our children and their educators?

We here at Titan Security Products can provide the safest way to have a firearm safely in a classroom or office.

There are many reasons why you as a gun owner should seriously consider investing in a gun safe. The first is to prevent children who are too young to understand gun safety from gaining access to your firearms…and even if your children are well-educated and responsible, consider that their friends may not be. The Titan Pistol Vault is perfect to protect all children from the dangers of touching an unattended firearm!

The United States has the highest rate of gun ownership anywhere in the world, and this ownership has been continuously increasing. Although people carry firearms for a feeling of safety and control over their environment, failing to keep your firearm secure can lead to dangerous situations. With a multifunctional gun safe like the Titan Gun Safe, you are not only ensuring that you can easily access your gun to defend yourself in emergency situations, but that it will be safe from children and other people. If a child gets hold of a loaded firearm and uses it improperly, you may be fined or sent to prison or both

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.
