Locking up your guns? Cable locks? Lock Boxes?

The place for beginners, or anyone else, to talk about gun, gear, and shooting topics with a minimum of jargon and/or geekery. The only stupid question is the one you don't ask that blows up in your face later.

Someone with more of a brain at Liberty seems to have taken control of the situation. I still don't like the idea that they kept the master codes but they claim it was so customers could call them if they forgot their code. Now they set up a site you can go to to have your codes removed from their database so they can't hand them over. Also they changed policy to not cooperate unless forced by a subpoena.

Can they be trusted? I don't know but they sure fucked up by the numbers this time. I am at the point in my life where I'm not really surprised by this kind of stuff and follow the old X Files advice, trust no one.

I've read elsewhere that you can look at the lock itself and contact the manufacturer (SG?) to get the reset codes yourself and wipe the whole thing, supposedly that way only you will know the code you set up. That is unless the lock manufacturer has a backdoor built in too.

At least someone with a liberty safe can ask them to wipe the database and try to wipe their actual lock.

Amsec is also one of the few companies that offer a true gun safe and not a residential security cabinet.
