I want a home defense shotgun and am leaning towards the Mossberg 590 Shockwave. I have two very young daughters. I am looking for a storage solution that allows me to access the gun quickly, but mount/lock it horizontally high in a closet, where no young hands can touch the firearm. I have looked at a few different options. Some are nearly $300. That is really pushing my budget. I am looking at the ShotLock Shotgun 200M Solo-Vault. On the whole reviews for that system appear positive. I would be grateful for any other recommendations for horizontal mounts that include a locking component.
I have the shot lock for my ar and like it a lot. No batteries or biometrics to worry about. Firearm is loaded and ready with no access to trigger unless it is opened.
I “prime” it at night for quick access by keying the numbers. If needed, just turn to open. Then reset it in the morning by keying a 5th number.
Love the Shot Lock. Simple and effective.
Stay safe out there.
When it comes to guns, locks, kids and budgets, budget doesn’t enter the conversation. Sacrifice the pop tarts/TAX their phone usage for a month (at today’s inflationary prices, of course). Explain to the children right from the start, safety and sacrifice. It’s simple Bidenomics,
“let them pay their fair share”
Don’t ever let the boyfriends into the house when your not present, locked or not, until the girls reach, say 30 years old???
Didn’t mean to be so harsh, well yes I did. They get ahold of the firearm and you pay a hefty price! Granted, a slight bit more than your budget!
All my children and grandchildren are grown up, so for me, on a bicycle rack above the inside of the master bedroom closet. Nothing to climb on. It will be locked when the great grandchildren arrive, luckily I have time.
$244.00 or so.
About 10 years ago I bought a pair of wall-mount gun magnets to store a Mossberg 590 overhead in a closet. Don’t recall the brand and sold the gun years ago, but it worked great. I now have a Remington Tac14 but haven’t tried using the magnets - I just keep it in a case between my nightstand and the wall. No kids, no need to keep it out of reach.
Here’s a picture of one:
PS: You can find similar magnets on Amazon.
Not a bad option either.
