Purchasing a firearm is a major responsibility that weighs all the more heavily if you are a first-time firearm owner. Not everyone is immersed in the ins and outs of gun culture, or in protecting and maintaining firearms. Moreover, not every first-time gun owner lives in a house with room to install a gigantic gun safe. Mycube is a company dedicated to safety and security for everyone. This piece will give a quick guide to safety considerations for first-time gun owners and recommendations on how to use them.
DO YOU NEED A FIREARM?
There is a perception that you are either a "gun person" or you're not. This binary equation breaks down when you realize just how diverse a body of people gun owners are in America. Still, first-time gun ownership can be a somewhat intimidating prospect for those who don't consider themselves inherently a "gun person".
So before you start looking for the perfect small home gun safe, it's worth it to ask the question - do I actually need this? A handgun is a responsibility. If you can't give a concrete answer to why you need one, you may want to reconsider the purchase.
Even if you do decide that you need the firearms, it's not time to buy that small home gun safe just yet. You also need to consider its practicality. If you decide you need a firearm for protection you need to ask a serious question - can you actually see yourself using it in that manner? Are you confident you have the training to use it for protection? Are you willing to spend the time and money to get that training? If you're buying a firearm for enjoyment, do you have a firing range that's convenient to your location?
WHERE WILL YOU KEEP IT?
Firearms are a tricky combination of dangerous and potentially valuable. It's a no-brainer to assume that you'll want to keep them secure - this is especially important if you have children in your home. However, not all of us have the sort of living space that can accommodate the classic giant gun safes. And if you're only getting a single handgun, why would you want to plan the logistics of getting such a behemoth into your home?
Just because you want to own a gun, doesn't mean you need to become a "gun person" with racks of rifles in your basement. There's no reason that "gun safe" has to mean "big beige behemoth". With Mycube, you can get a selection of sleek and stylish safes that are suitable for any room in your house, letting you put your firearms where you feel most comfortable with them - not where the logistics of your house demand.
If you're worried about access, you can look into our safes with advanced locking mechanisms. The Biocube mini comes with a biometric lock - if your fingerprints aren't recorded by the lock, you aren't getting in. This prevents potentially dangerous situations like a child learning the code to your new gun safe.
The Mycube line is also unique in that they don't look like the traditional "gun safes". In fact, when it comes to looks, there's very little that can compare. Being a first-time gun owner can sometimes be nerve-wracking. Mycube gives you the confidence that your new purchase is secure while letting you fly under the radar as far as it comes to your new purchase. If you are looking for something with a little more heft, our new Biocube Professional is a five-gun rifle safe that allows you to have extra storage without taking up too much space. It's a perfect safe for securing your longer guns while still staying discreet.
