Securing a firearm with convenient, reliable keyless fingerprint-access technology.
Gun Guardian is the only firearm safety device that allows the weapon to be loaded with a round in the chamber, is keyless, and is always attached to the weapon…even when unlocked. The shield will only uncover the trigger when the correct biometric signature is read via the fingerprint reader, or if the correct security code is entered. It has an internal lock that activates when the shield is engaged. This lock ensures that GunGuardian cannot be removed from the firearm until the correct security code is entered.
Gun Guardian is designed to withstand the shock of recoil. Therefore it is encouraged that it always be attached to the accessory rail, even when you are firing the weapon. While in the locked position GunGuardian allows the user to eject the magazine and cycle the slide of the firearm. Therefore, you can make the weapon “safe” before disengaging GunGuardian.
Gun Guardian is a firearm safety device developed by law enforcement officers. Our real world experience is the drive behind this practical device.

Q: How reliable is Gun Guardian?
Gun Guardian uses a patented hybrid (biometric and mechanical) locking device. Gun Guardian is 100% reliable and can even unlock if completely submerged in water.
Q: How safe is Gun Guardian?
Gun Guardian prevents access to the trigger. Drop tests were introduced with the federal Gun Control Act of 1968. This means that the firearm cannot fire unless the trigger is pressed. Since the trigger can’t be pressed, the firearm is completely safe from firing.
Q: What is the battery life?
Gun Guardian was developed using the highest quality components available. Once fully charged Gun Guardian can sit untouched for approximately 6 months and still open using the biometrics. In the event Gun Guardian sits longer than 6 months without being charged, it can still open with the mechanical combination lock. This ensures that your firearm will always be available when needed.
Q: When will Gun Guardian be available?
Our prototypes are expected to be completed Spring 2017. We are going to perform rigorous testing to ensure safety. If things go as planned, we will start mass-producing by Winter 2017.
