IDENTILOCK for Springfield Armory
We have grandchildren and guests with small children in our home regularly. So, for decades my firearms have remained in a safe or locked box. With home invasions in the news so often, my wife (not a gun or anti-gun person) requested I obtain a biometric tabletop safe and keep a handgun accessible. I tested three of the quick draw (holster) type bedside safes returned each of them. All failed either in their overall quality of construction or in their recognition reliability (finger print). I was not going to bet my life or those of my loved ones on any of them. I decided to give identilock a try (4th time is a charm right). It fit my Springfield XDS-45 perfectly. The fingerprint recognition while a bit more tedious during the scanning process,... is absolutely 100% reliable. After programming it will recognize your finger even if placed on it backwards or upside down. It falls clear of the gun in less than a half second. I added a TYC TAQ Magnetic Gun Mount to the side of the bed rail to render absolutely the most discrete storage (hidden under the comforter) and fastest access (right where my strong side hand lands while lying in bed) that could possibly exist. Workmanship and materials are superb. Fingerprint recognition is flawless and faster than they claim! Thank you Identilock. Now, please these available home defense shotguns (the Remington 870 and the Mossberg 500). There are those of us who would much rather face down an intruder with the reliable long gun than the pistol.

Awesome device, very well thought-out. Has a USB-C port for charging, which is great.
This is definitely not a gimmick. The old dilemma of having your gun in a safe slowing down your response time for ready to shoot is literally NO MORE!
Works great for my night stand Springfield XDM. Quick access, easy to program and use. Only down side is I have to take my rail light off which I don't like not having on the gun.
