Three Reasons to use Truck Bed Gun Safes

Pickup truck weapon lockerMaybe you’ve wondered about the reasons for having a truck weapon safe. First, is it safe to keep a firearm in a truck? Is a safe just another cool gadget that will gather dust? As it turns out, there are five tangible benefits of using a truck bed gun safe.


For sportsmen and hunters, carrying a weapon is an everyday occurrence. It is also true for ordinary gun holder citizens. Knowing the law is critical.

Many states are firearm friendly, allowing you to keep your firearm (generally a handgun) easily accessible while you travel. In some cases, other states have laws requiring you to keep the gun out of reach while in the truck.

Depending on the law’s language, you must dismantle the gun or store it in the trunk or bed of your truck. These gun laws apply whether you live in that state or are traveling between two gun-friendly states.

Check the concealed carry reciprocity laws to stay on the right side of the law.

In states where these laws apply, getting pulled over for a minor traffic ticket (e.g., a burned-out headlight) can begin an extended legal ordeal.

If law enforcement discovers that you have an easily accessible firearm, you can be subject to various unwelcome legal consequences.

Avoid this whole sequence of events by securing a truck bed weapon safe in your vehicle.


Many private gun holders have children and loved ones who ride in their trucks.

If your son or daughter views your vehicle as their playground, they probably love crawling over every square inch of your truck. If you have a loaded gun stored under the seat, window rack, or laying in the bed of your truck, they’ll find it.

Avoid unfortunate consequences at all costs. A truck bed gun locker will keep those curious loved ones from entering dangerous territory.

Theft Prevention

As any police officer will tell you, firearms are one of the top items stolen from vehicles. Our truck bed gun storage solutions can assist in theft prevention for all gun carriers.

How police officers store their weapons in their trucks can make the difference if their gun is compromised or not. A criminal steals a weapon and often commits a crime (or multiple crimes) with it.

Citizens and police officers can avoid these incidents by securing their firearms in our truck bed gun safe.

“The installation guys were very professional, courteous and efficient. There was not much room to work but they managed to get the job done quickly, allowing space for me to continue to work and watch them at the same time. They vacuumed and cleaned up all the packing material/boxes exhibiting true professionalism. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job in a remarkably short amount of time.”
