I'm looking at a fast access setup for locking up a shotgun. I'm considering the cuff style locks that are used in police cars and would like to hear some opinions. How solid are these things? Assuming it is mounted properly, what would it take to remove a gun without the key? Big Sky rack Lock by Santa Cruz I'm not planning on using the electrical operation yet, but that will come into play in my next house. Right now I'm going to use the key, unlocking it when I'm home and locking it while I'm away. This will make one shotgun upstairs and one downstairs in the regular gun safe, leaving us with reasonably fast access to either one in case of emergency. My main concern is theft prevention. I don't care if someone destroys the gun trying to remove it, I just want to do my best to keep it out of use (either after theft or against me if I walk in on a burglary attampt ). ***If you're wondering, I'm considering mounting it to plate steel and then fastening it to several wall studs, perhaps in 2-3 directions. Sort of an L-shaped arrangement mounted in the corner of a closet.
