Be ready and safe with the Reach Safe from Vara Safety


NEWS – While no one can argue that there are way too many gun violence occurrences and tragedies across this country and around the world, there should also be an acknowledgment that there are millions of law-abiding gun owners who safely use firearms for reasons such as competition shooting, target shooting, and home safety. When maintaining a firearm at the ready for home security, it is very important that the readiness plan includes safety that does not allow anyone other than the desired individual/s to retrieve the gun. Not only is this common sense, but in many states within the United States, it is the law.

Vara Safety has designed a new device with this exact concept in mind. The Reach Safe is a mountable holster type of a firearm safe keeping device that uses a biometric fingerprint sensor to access the firearm in a “quick draw” manner. It is ergonomically correct so that retrieval is a part of the natural action of retrieving from a holster. Vara Safety manufactures inserts for the safe that will match the make and model of the firearm being used. In the event of a loss of power, there are also keys provided that will allow for manual access.

You can find more information on this product on the Vara Safety website and you can also pre-order the safe for $299. The first orders are scheduled to ship on August 31st, 2019.

  2. Thanks for doing this one Julian. If my fingers are even the slightest bit cold or damp, my Samsung S8 won’t respond / unlock. Wonder what the variable condition reliability of this device is? At that price it better be perfect. That’d be the first test I’d do if I bought it.

  3. Hi Lex,
    You make a good point. If I ever get to test and review one, I will certainly check that out.

  4. For an alternative, I’d suggest the Zore X gun lock. I’ve been using it for several years and so far without failure and it’s not subject to fingerprint reader issues. While it doesn’t secure your firearm, it does stop unauthorized use.
