Posted on: May 18, 2023

Made in USA Weapon Storage Units Accommodate Modern Duty Guns Shakopee, MN (May 12, 2023 ) Steelhead Outdoors has engineered an American-Made, large, horizontal handgun locker based on the needs of local law enforcement agencies. Built to accommodate modern duty guns with lights and optics, as well as a backup gun, Steelhead lockers can replace and update smaller lockers installed in sallyport areas. The unit weighs over 13.5 pounds and comes in at 11.5” wide x 6.75” tall x 11” deep. Formed and welded from 14-gauge steel with a 10-gauge door, the Steelhead handgun locker features a premium key lock with a unique multi-side bars design that makes picking with traditional tools all but impossible. The lock has 6 billion key combinations and features a drill-resistant body. This lock style is more secure and pick resistant than tubular and traditional wafer locks that are found on almost all other lockboxes. A double shear lock mechanism provides increased pry-resistance. It's available in a durable black textured powder coat finish with a charcoal grey key surround. The base features a layer of 3/8” foam to protect stowed firearms. The large size locker will fit 1-2 handguns and can accommodate large pistols with attachments and can be configured to create storage banks dependent upon an agency’s current and anticipated needs. Steelhead lockers are listed at $245 with free shipping. Contact Steelhead for quantity pricing and custom orders. “We listened to our agency partners and designed our oversized Steelhead pistol lockers to help them update their sallyports to allow for stowing new duty guns with optics and lights,” explained Steelhead Outdoors Co-Founder Corey Meyer. “Our pistol lockers are nestable to create a customizable storage option. We’re also happy to work on customized weapon storage units to accommodate departments’ unique requirements.” Upgrading pistol lockers helps protect officers and the public from unauthorized access to firearms. Outdated pistol lockers may be easily breached, allowing unauthorized individuals to access firearms. A well-designed, larger pistol locker can help prevent accidental discharges and other firearms-related injuries. Response time and overall efficiency can be improved with a larger modern pistol locker that makes it easier for officers to access firearms when needed. Newer pistol lockers may also help departments comply with state and federal regulations and avoid fines or other penalties. Reducing a law enforcement agency’s liability risk and enhancing its public image are other compelling reasons to upgrade pistol lockers. Steelhead Outdoors proudly makes its Made-in-USA weapon storage units including lockboxes and mountable, nestable oversized pistol lockers in Shakopee, MN. Custom weapon storage options are also available for law enforcement as well as consumers. Steelhead Outdoors offers modular gun safes and vault doors for residential use using the latest technology and construction methods. Steelhead Outdoors recently introduced the stealthy, Made in America Recon 38 tactical safe. The Recon 38 modular gun safe offers storage for firearms and associated gear in a flat textured black finish with graphite colored logo and handle and custom blacked out hardware. This tactical package includes a custom bolt-on roof rack for stowing extra gear and range bags. The rack’s raised perimeter helps keep items in place on top of the safe. The interior can be configured to hold from 10-35 long guns. Prices start at $4,400 USD. Steelhead Outdoors offers three sizes of Nomad Series safes which feature many high-end security features expected in a premium gun safe. Prices start at $2,700. The patented construction features a fully dry insulation system, eliminating the need for a dehumidifier. This system utilizes a radiant heat reflecting coating to reject incoming heat from entering the safe. The metal interior provides additional protection and is made from nearly 100 percent nonflammable materials. The panels are filled with ceramic fire insulation that is rated to 2300 degrees and is non-moisture trapping so it does not require the use of a dehumidifier and will not release steam into the safe in the event of a fire. Steelhead Outdoors created its Homestead Vault Doors collection as an alternative to modular gun safes. Vault doors can be used in non-residential applications as well. Homestead Vault Doors start at $5,500.

About Steelhead Outdoors: Founded in 2016, Steelhead Outdoors is an innovative safe company offering the only American-made, modular, fire-insulated gun safe available currently on the market. Longtime friends, engineers and avid outdoorsmen, Charlie Pehrson and Corey Meyer, searched for a gun safe that was Made in USA, adaptable and offered a respectable level of fire and theft protection, but they soon realized this product didn’t exist. Since they couldn’t buy it, they decided to build it. Steelhead Outdoors was created with the goal of building a safe that customers could, and would want to, take with them from one home to the next, or pass down from one generation to the next. Four years of research and development went into the flagship Nomad Series, to create a durable, lasting and innovative modular gun safe.
