If you're like many NRA Families, you're looking for a safe gun storage solution that protects your handgun against unauthorized access even as it makes it easy for you to protect your family's safety. Hornady's RAPiD Safe line has been leading that charge for many years, offering secure, RFID-based gun storage that allows you to get to the firearm quickly should you need to. Now the company has announced the latest addition to the RAPiD Safe family: the Night Guard. 

The Night Guard follows the "hiding in plain sight" philosophy of staging a home-defense firearm. The discreet design looks like nothing so much as a clock alarm with USB charging ports ... and that's because that's precisely what it is. (It just also happens to have a hidden, locked spot for your defensive firearm.)

The safe is accessible in three ways. The RFID reader is the go-to method for most users, because it offers the quickest access. There is also a user-programmed access code and a mechanical key, ensuring you always have access to your valuables. The Night Guard operates on AC power with a battery backup—a dual system that safeguards and makes ready guns and valuables 24/7. 

The Night Guard may look like a clock alarm, but it's a very real, very tough safe. With heavy-duty, tamper-proof construction, it exceeds the rigorous industry standards for firearm storage. The safe’s heavy-duty exterior housing and hardened interior locking lugs prevent unauthorized entry, keeping loved ones safe.

An included 1500-pound-rated security cable protects the RAPiD Night Guard from theft. Alternatively, it can be secured to a stationary object using the pre-drilled mounting holes. MSRP $323.99; HornadySecurity.com
