I talk a lot about gun safes, and pistol safes on this site, however what I haven’t talked a ton about is other alternatives to those products. Enter the IdentiLock.
I’ve been aware of this company for quite a while, and have really liked what I have seen. Because of that, here we are!
The Identilock is basically a gun safe, that attaches to the pistol, instead of having the firearm locked up inside of it.
How does it work?
It’s extremely easy to use! Once you have programmed your biometric fingerprint into the lock, you wrap it around the trigger of your firearm and lock it.
At this time, the only way you would be able to fire the pistol, is to unlock it either with your own fingerprint, or by using a backup key that it comes with.
Why is this better?
The downside to a standard handgun safe, is that every second is important if someone is breaking into your home and you need your pistol.
Having a pistol in a handgun safe takes extra time. Instead with IdentiLock you are able to unlock it by holding the pistol just like you are supposed to, making it a quick and easy process, and is completely natural.
My final thoughts?
There are definitely upsides and downsides to this. This wouldn’t be the best solution for long term storage, and still recommend having a gun safe.
Secondly, I do always have my worries about biometric locks. However for the price of this unit, it better have a quality scanner on it.
