Well, I dont really know what I think about this new product called the Kwick Strike…
I have derided gimmicky “gun safes” in the past here on the blog… this product for sure has that aspect, but on the other hand it does lock… so it does have that going for it. I honestly just dont know about the overall practicality of all this.
Kwick Strike is a portable and mountable gun safe made from heavy duty 12 gauge steel. The unit is designed with theft prevention in mind by incorporating a steel universal mounting bracket that is bolted to the floorboard using 3 heavy duty bolts and washers. The washers cover a large surface area under the vehicle and make ripping the unit out an after-thought. Using a hardened steel locking assembly your firearm is safely locked away in the pry-proof steel safe.
Its certainly fast and easily accessible. As you will see from the below video, it just takes a second or two to access (you can even actuate it with the side of your knee), but unless you are driving through downtown Baghdad (Detroit) I just dont really know if all of this is really needed. And as far as a pistol safe for the home is concerned, I really dont like ones that are not electronic. I dont know, maybe I am just naive.
