A variety of trigger locks are available, and most new guns now arrive from the factory with one in the box. Trigger locks cover the trigger guard and cable locks thread through the action of the firearm.
GunVault provides action locks designed for specific firearms. The AR-01 MagVault, for AR-15 platforms, locks firmly into the mag well and blocks a round of ammunition from being chambered. The BreechVault is an easy-to-mount lock that fits most of the 12-gauge shotguns on the market. MSRP: $13.95 - $24.95
Most plastic and fabric gun cases can be secured with an external lock, while some cases have light locks built in. Although putting a lock on these cases may meet the minimum requirements for transporting an unloaded firearm, they are not the most secure options available.
It's tough to protect firearms while traveling, but Secure Firearms Products provides a series of exceptionally strong handgun and rifle cases to suit a traveler's needs. These unique cases feature welded corners, heavy-duty plated steel latches, case-hardened locking studs and a high security Medeco Lock. Mounting hardware and cables allow the cases to attach directly to the trunk of a car, to the wall of a closet and even to the interior of a suitcase. MSRP: $441.95 - $531.95
GunVault provides shooters with a variety of handgun storage options. The MV500-STD Micro Vault is one of its portable models. Although it's made of heavy-gauge steel, this unit is slim and lightweight enough to carry in a briefcase or to be tucked into a small drawer. The No-Eyes electronic keypad allows the owner to enter a customized code by touch, allowing the safe to be opened in total darkness, if necessary. The MV500 offers a practical solution for secure but quick to access handgun storage. MSRP: $143.95
While not as secure as a safe, Stack-On Security Cabinets meet California Penal Code storage regulations at a fraction of the costs. Stack-On offers a variety of cabinet sizes and styles for holding between eight and 31 long guns in a secure, non-fireproof location. Steel gun cabinets offer excellent protection for shooters with limited income, or who in higher domiciles. MSRP: $149.99 - $349.98
