When it comes to owning a firearm many of us understand the need for also owning a safe. A place to store our guns, ammunition, weapons, and tools so it is not only protected and away from the hands of little ones in our household, but also those who might threaten to break in and steal things. Something else that goes hand-in-hand with owning firearms is receiving instruction and training for those tools. Just as we get tutelage to shoot archery – from high angle positions while hunting or flat land for competition – so it is also important to know how to deploy a firearm for defense. Something firearm safe companies do not discuss though is training on how to effectively retrieve a firearm from the safes they sell for defense. Why is that? SecureIt has identified this issue – and not only isolated it – but they are answering it. SecureIt Gun Storage has rolled out the “Beyond the Gun” Safe Training curriculum. Let’s take a deep dive into what this looks like, SecureIt as a company, and much more.
Firearm Storage Coverage from SecureIt
SecureIt Gun Storage – Who, What, Why
At SecureIt, they run with a pretty simple, but important mantra that they want to change the way people think about gun storage. The thought of gun safes is a pretty dry subject for most companies. It is predictable, dull, boring, and outdated. SecureIt wants to be different in that their storage and safe solutions are intelligently designed for not only the storage of firearms, but the deployment of them as well.
We’re on a mission to change the way Americans think about gun storage.
With over 20 years of experience in the industry, SecureIt has been passionately building out safes that are now found in homes, law enforcement facilities, and military armories throughout the world. Their products and designs work. Their origin story dates back to 2001 when they were tasked by the Department of Defense to build out a more efficient layout for armory storage and SecureIt innovated within a dated industry to answer that call. The rest is history.
Firearms WHERE and WHEN You NEED Them!
SecureIt Gun Storage – Acknowledging a Need
The firearm community is one of the most welcoming groups of people out there. Moreso than “gym bros,” CrossFitters, archery types, or even the hiking community. We want people to join the party, come along for the ride, and train their firearms with us. This usually involves flat range shooting, some type of range games (3-Gun, USPSA, The Tactical Games, etc), or deploying firearms from concealment (think about clearing a garment to present a firearm). We even can get into the minutia of deploying firearms from high-ready, low-ready, slinged positions, and even from trucks, ATVs, and other vehicles.
A skill or discipline that no one practices is deploying a firearm from a safe though, and that is the most realistic scenario when defending your “castle;” defending your home – retrieving a firearm from a safe to eliminate a threat. Moreover, no one has a curriculum or educational program for people to seek out information regarding safes, deploying firearms from them for defense, and the importance of “staging” your firearm (having it placed/orientated properly for easy use). For all of those reasons, SecureIt created the “Beyond the Gun” Safe Training course.
