GUNVAULT INTRODUCES THE DRAWERVAULT Convenient, safe and secure storage for valuables in the home or office
San Bernardino, CA – GunVault is proud to announce the latest addition to its popular and affordable line of compact security safes – the DrawerVault. Now there’s a security solution designed for any room in the house. The new DrawerVault series fits and operates in most standard drawers, making it the smart choice for handgun storage. Also perfect for passports, documents, cash or other valuables, the DrawerVault is ideal for your home or business.
Capable of fitting most tablets and E-Readers, the DrawerVault is constructed of tamper-proof 18-gauge steel and includes a foam-lined interior to protect its contents. It’s available with GunVault’s patented No-Eyes® keypad or biometric fingerprint scanner for easy access. An activation button triggers a spring-loaded, tamper resistant door that not only has a high-strength lock mechanism, but also performs reliably, time after time. Foolproof security is ensured with a backup override key and optional high-strength security cable. An audio and LED low battery indicator protect against direct tampering and unexpected power loss.
The DrawerVault Bio uses biometrics, specifically fingerprint recognition, to access the safe contents faster and more securely than ever before. A high-performance algorithm is used to achieve speedy identification of enrolled fingerprints and at the same time has a very low False Reject Rate (FRR). The self-learning algorithm adds new minutiae to the fingerprint templates each time a user touches the fingerprint sensor, which decreases the likelihood of FRR, updates slight changes that might occur over time to an enrolled fingerprint and helps diminish variations between the enrolled fingerprints. The system can hold up to 120 fingerprint templates.

NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industry, hailed today’s passage of the Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012 (H.R. 4089). The bill passed the House with a 274-146 vote.
Sponsored by Rep. Jeff Miller (R-Fla.), the bill combines four legislative priorities that will expand recreational hunting, shooting and fishing opportunities and also reaffirms existing law and heads off determined bureaucratic efforts to deny hunters and shooters from using traditional ammunition. This important legislation is supported by more than 35 national conservation and sportsmen’s groups.
“NSSF thanks Rep. Miller for his exceptional leadership in helping to expand access and opportunities for sportsmen and in protecting and preserving America’s hunting and shooting heritage,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel. “We look forward to seeking passage of the bill in the Senate.”
Said Rep. Miller, “I think it is important to recognize the contributions that sportsmen make to protect our nation’s most precious resources. Outdoor activities like hunting and fishing are a central part of our heritage and way of life, but they also help fund a good portion of our conservation efforts. We must remain ever diligent to ensure the rights of sportsmen. Thanks to the members of the sportsmen’s community, Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus and the House Committee on Natural Resources, H.R. 4089 will be able to address some of the most pressing concerns the outdoors community faces.”
Included in H.R. 4089 is the Hunting, Fishing, and Recreational Shooting Protection Act. The bill amends the Toxic Substances Control Act to clarify the original intent of Congress to exclude traditional ammunition — ammunition containing lead-core components — and fishing tackle from regulation by the Environmental Protection Agency.
H.R. 4089 includes other key legislative priorities of the sportsmen’s community:
The Recreational Fishing and Hunting Heritage Opportunities Act, which requires federal land managers to support and facilitate use and access for hunting, fishing and recreational shooting.
The Recreational Shooting Protection Act, which requires National Monument land to be open to access and use for recreational shooting.
The Polar Bear Conservation and Fairness Act, which will allow the importation of polar bear parts taken in a hunt in Canada, if legally harvested before certain dates.
About NSSF The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports. Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of more than 7,000 manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers.

This new laser trainer fits all of the most popular pistol calibers, mounts inside the barrel and has the sound activated switch showing bullet impact with a laser dot. Every time your hammer or striker fires the small laser dot will flash for 100 milli-seconds simulating bullet impact.
This is the next evolution to the LaserLyte line of laser trainers. This model installs from the muzzle of the barrel and fits tight with the use of LaserLyte’s patented arbor and taper system. The system will fit the weapons chambered in 9mm, 40S&W, 45 ACP that have a minimum of a 2 inch barrel. The LT-Pro will also fit calibers 38 special, .380 Auto, 357 Sig, 10 mm and 45 LC.
The training possibilities are expanded with this model because the trainer will not extend past your muzzle more than .25 inches. This nearly flush mounted laser trainer makes it easier to train from the holster, concealment or close quarters. The mounting system will retain the laser firmly in the barrel during any reloading drills. (LaserLyte strongly recommends the use of snap caps)
This is simply the easiest way to train without ammo for any of your pistols with a 2-inch barrel or longer. The popular calibers listed above can be expensive and hard to find for regular practice. This is the most effective laser training system that will meet all your needs.
