Free Hornady Critical Defense Ammo with RAPiD Safe Purchase

posted on October 13, 2016

During Hornady’s Safe & Secure promotion, consumers will receive a free box of Critical Defense ammunition when they purchase an RFID-enabled Hornady RAPiD Safe*—a RAPiD Safe, RAPiD Safe 2600 or RAPiD Safe 2700.

Hornady’s patent-pending RFID technology allows fast access to a handgun by simply placing the RFID wristband, key fob or adhesive decal over the reader, which causes the safe to spring open and present a gun to its owner.

The promotion runs through Jan. 15, 2017. *Some exclusions apply. For all of the rules and details, please visit
