    Default Speed Release Trigger Lock

    Does anyone else use this gun lock? When I first heard about it, I found the idea of a digital gun lock is intriguing. I went on a wild goose chase, trying to find myself once of these locks.



    ^ Picture of the lock from rrarms.com

    I finally found one of these locks (actually three) for sale on eBay after finding them all sold out elsewhere, contacting my local gun shops, etc. Only one seller had them, and I bought them up (one for me, one for my boyfriend, one for a housemate interested in purchasing a firearm in the near future).

    I got them yesterday in the mail, and this lock is most excellent in my opinion! Changing the 9 volt battery does not require the gun be unlocked, nor does the code reset if it is changed. There is no backup key (which actually was the selling point, I'll explain why soon). The operation is silent. No beeping when the number pad is pressed. And for the code, you can press two buttons at once, and it counts as one part of the four digit combo (so you can have 4, 1+3, 2, 1 for added security). Not having to find a key in order to unlock a home defense weapon is a HUGE perk. I mean, if a bad guy breaks in during the night, you don't want to wake up, grab your gun, and then realize the key moved from its usual place nearby because of the cat (yes, my cat plays with keys, any keys). Just tap in the combo, load up, and go. If you have children, this also eliminates them finding the keys (though they should be kept in safe place) and possibly unlocking a firearm. The average kid, if they even have access to the firearms, will give up after a few attempted combination, plus, it locks up for 15 minutes after a few failed attempts.

    The reason I did not want a gun with a keyed lock, or even backup key, is because I know how easily those locks can be picked. I mean, the average trigger lock is ridiculously easy to pick. How do I know? One of my housemates is a lock pick extraordinaire. I handed him the cable lock I got free with my Mossberg, and in 20 seconds, he handed it back, open. While the average baddie probably doesn't have such skills, it still is shocking, and I'd rather not have to deal with that. Though most criminals, if they break in and steal a weapon when someone isn't home, will just cart the entire thing off, lock and all.

    I hope these locks become more available in the future, and are not discontinued ( it seems there is a temporary supply problem right now). Truly a great lock!

    I guess that they are fine for people that feel they have a use for them.

    The last thing I want to do in an emergency is try to push some tiny little buttons in a certain order in the dark in order to protect my family. To me, they are a complete nuisance. I will lock all my guns in the safe except for the one I have with me at the time. My kids are grown and gone, but they knew at a very young age that they were not allowed to touch a gun without me being there with them. Of course, the true meaning of what I say, if my kids didn't do as I say, they got a butt warming instead of a useless time out.

    These locks are (in my opinion) nothing but a "feel good" item. Unless a lock secures the complete gun, it is not a locking device. A safe bolted to the floor is a locking device. Teaching your kids is mandatory, if you aren't doing that, you are not pulling your own responsibility in life.

    Not meant to offend anyone, but I personally think these locks are a joke.

    A lock is a lock is a lock. They keep honest people honest. I can remove that one, without having the code, in about a minute.

    It is an updated variation of standard trigger locks and should keep curious little fingers safe. It is good that you found what works best for you.

    No offense taken, Luvs2Play. I welcome hearing everyone's opinions. It'd be a boring place if everyone said the same thing.

    At least for my purposes, this lock works. If I could, I would invest in a gun safe like my father's. His safe is epic, and he keeps most of his collection in it, save for the few he keeps hidden for home defense.

    I do have a little one at home. Most of my guns stay in my safe. I do keep 1 out of the safe which is where my daughter can not get to it and it is loaded ready for use.

    My daughter who is 3 knows she is not allowed to touch the guns. And I never leave any where she can get the chance. I do not have a trigger lock on it cause I carry it often and when I dont have it on me it is where she cant get to it.

    AS usual, I commend Popeye for his complete honesty and opinion, especially as someone involved in the retail end of firearms...and consider him an expert...I also commend him for his respect, as usual, to a member
    here who has invoked an obviously serious subject to them.

    I also want to say that Stacykins has found a good item there...I do hope they stay available....and I would sure prefer one of those, over an older key lock style.

    I also commend her for obviously being concerned about safety and tracking down something in order to try it and see for themselves.
    However safety is implemented per your firearms, follow through and practice, practice, etc....and develop a sincere order of how you maintain and store your weapons at home and abroad....

    I get no more enjoyment from a forum than when someone, especially newer gun users/owners seek opinions and advice, and offer info they come across....

    Again, I would like to try one of those....look OK.....

    Default Speed Release Lock Instructions

    Hey, anybody have a set of instructions to work a speed release lock? My daughter picked one up for me in a bargin bin however it didn't come with instructions, and it is locked. I would assume there is a way to reset the thing if you loose the combo. I'm a 20+ year firearms instructor and she thought it was cool and high tech. The card it was mounted to however didn't have instructions.
    Thanks,
    Bob

    If it works for you great. I have never put a lock on a gun in my life. I do keep most in a safe. I always have one on me .

    I'm having a hard time envisioning how a 9v battery fits in a lock that goes inside a trigger guard.
