Vaultek SR20i

Once permission has been granted, Vaultek’s Slider series of rapid-deployment single-pistol safes automatically open fully in less than a second to allow immediate access to the enclosed firearm—and, as one of the line’s most advanced models, the SR20i offers numerous ways for authorized users to quickly unlock it.

Not only can the compartment be opened via a user-configurable keypad combination, the unit’s high-definition biometric scanner or a pair of included physical keys, but the SR20i is also compatible with Vaultek’s phone app and Nano Key 2.0 remote-access button (sold separately, $20)—making it easier than ever to get a gun in hand during an emergency.

With external dimensions of 11.25"x9.1"x2.6", the safe can be unobtrusively installed vertically to a nightstand, under a desk or inside a vehicle using the included mounting plate and hardware, yet its foam-lined interior is spacious enough to accommodate a duty-size handgun up to 8.88" in overall length.
