It can provide secure storage when you are traveling in a public vehicle or driving in your car. It is equally useful at nightstands and home.

Features of the RPNB Pistol Gun Safe


Steel Construction

RPNB Pistol Gun Safe is built with 16-gauge powder-coated heavy steel, which adds to the security it can offer. It is, therefore, durable, long-lasting and can withstand damages. This choice of material prevents corrosion by keeping humidity and moisture at bay, thanks to the protective barrier offered by powder-coated steel. The steel construction equally promotes chip resistance; therefore, the RPNB Pistol Gun Safe will not corrode, scratch, chip, peel, or crack easily. Additionally, the steel construction confers on the RPNB Pistol Gun Safe an adequate resistance to the elements.

Size Varieties

The number and size of items you want to store in the RPNB Pistol Gun Safe can determine the size to buy. The largest size can hold more than one handgun and may also take in additional objects, like passports, medicine and important documents. However, portability reduces as size increases. All sizes are fitted with steel security cables and are pry-resistant. They also meet TSA airline firearm guidelines.

Combination

Both lock types feature 100% steel locking mechanism for durability and improved security. The locking mechanism is further supported by steel security cable. Additionally, the lock offers ultra-security to prevent thieves from accessing the items stored in the RPNB Pistol Gun Safe. You can retrofit the lock system to fit any particular use. The lock is equally easy to reprogram in case you forget the combination. Keep in mind that each box features different lock type.

Foamy Interior

The interior is layered with four pieces of foam, two each at the top and bottom, but no foam covers the metal area. The padding prevents damage to any of the items stored in the RPNB Pistol Gun Safe and protect them from scratch, chip, peel, or crack. It also ensures the contents can remain undisturbed while traveling. The foam can secure the guns and prevent the items in the box from rattling around while you are in motion. Moreover, the foam ensures the magazines, guns and other items in the box do not slide around.

TSA Airline Firearm Guideline compliance

RPNB Pistol Gun Safe is complaint with the TSA airline firearm guideline, which further makes it the best storage item for guns, magazines and such items. The guideline read in part that “...firearms must be unloaded and locked in a hard-sided container and transported as checked baggage only...” The secure combination or key fitted to the RPNB Pistol Gun Safe equally makes it compliant with the guideline. The box can be added to your checked baggage, which is the acceptable transportation means for firearm parts, like firing pins, bolts, clips, and magazine, all of which can be stores in RPNB Pistol Gun Safe.

Portability

RPNB Pistol Gun Safe is highly portable, thanks to its size. Its portability ensures it can be hidden from sight, especially when you find yourself in certain public places where guns are not permitted; examples of such places are concerts, sports venues, federal court facilities, post offices, federal prisons, national cemeteries, and aircrafts. Its portability also comes in handy when traveling to states where guns are not allowed or there are strict laws against firearms, like Pennsylvania, Illinois, Rhode Island, Maryland, Hawaii, Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey and California.
