interesting concept for quick access long gun safe

#1

Post by JustSomeOldGuy » Sun Jun 26, 2016 12:34 pm

I like the concept here. Would like to see economy of scale bring price down below that of a conventional multi-gun safe.....at current price I think it will remain, pardon the pun, a niche product.

Yeah, I like the idea of a quick access gun not in a normally suspected location, but with no way to attach it to the floor, I think it would be a target for theft just being a speaker. Then they have your hide out gun(s). JMHO

It does allow for bolting to the floor.

I must have missed that it looked like it was portable. That would make it a somewhat better option. :tiphat:

Kinda makes you wonder about their marketing photo, though. They picture an AR and a pistol...and the only spare ammo is a bunch of shot shells, no spare mags or rounds for the two semi-autos anywhere in sight. I guess they're just highlighting that they have shot-shell loops built in, but if a shotgun isn't your go-to, that's just wasted space. I'd think it would have made more sense to build in Molle strips so folks could mount just about whatever spare mags/ammo they wanted.

The video references that shotshell holder as the "optional ammunition holder".

Yep; you're right. And I didn't previously click on "Pre-order Now," but it seems that's where you need to go to see specifics:
$99 USD + Shipping
Sentinel Storage Accessory
As featured in the prototype on Indiegogo we have added some accessories not included with sentinel including a holster for a pistol and some ammo storage. Sentinel storage accessory will easily attach to the inside of your Sentinel and will have a place for a pistol, pockets for ammo, and clips.
Not much detail about storage for "clips." :mrgreen: But evidently you do get something for your extra $100 other than shot-shell holders. That said, the interior dimensions are 39" x 10" x 3.5". So with many types of red-dot sights mounted on an AR, the 10" depth means you'd only be able to have a 20-round mag inserted if you wanted to keep a loaded firearm...which seems the point. The depth and width seem unnecessarily constraining. Despite the marketing photo, I don't know how much you could actually fit in there.

My wife liked the thing until she saw the price. $700 may be a good price, but it's more than she wants to spend.

I was ready to buy one until I saw that price
Cut out the speakers and it could get that price point lower

Pretty cool but adding the speakers is just a ploy to get more money. I doubt the sound quality is anything I'd want to listen to.

Other than that, attaching it to the floor in your living room or any room other than a closet? No thanks. Not tearing up my floors. God forbid I want to move my furniture around.

It's $524 on the preorder. Still more than I''d pay.

I hear "price point" bandied about everywhere. What is the difference between "price point" and "price?" Or, is "price point" just a way to sound in the know? No offense intended.

It's a way for us cool kids to make you outsiders feel more awkward and worse about yourselves. :mrgreen: :lol:

Thanks TAM. Figured as much. It was one of my words/phrases I had in my "insider" vocabulary along with ROI, Let me be clear, at the end of the day, outside the box, etc.
