Vehicle Headrest Sliding Safe Wins Golden Bullseye Award

vehicle headrest safe slide biometric pass code gun storage

vehicle headrest safe slide biometric pass code gun storageThe Headrest Safe Slide, a removable metal safe mated to a custom vehicle headrest, has won a 2024 NRA Golden Bullseye Award. This safe can be used inside the vehicle securely, or it can be removed entirely from the companion headrest. The headrest safe can be opened in three ways: 1) biometric fingerprint or thumbprint; 2) passcode; or 3) manual metal key. This innovative mobile safe is produced by The Headrest Safe Co. LLC based in Alabama.

Price for the sliding model is $499.99 on Amazon. The safe is made from 18ga steel and the interior is protected with 1/2″ of foam rubber so you don’t scratch your handguns.

The Golden Bullseye Awards, now in their 22nd year, recognizes the firearm industry’s top products. The winners are selected by a veteran NRA Publications’ staff, representing more than a century of collective experience in the shooting and hunting industry. This year’s award ceremony will be held at the 2024 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Dallas, Texas, on Friday, May 17, 2024.

vehicle headrest safe slide biometric pass code gun storage

“We are humbled and honored to be recognized for this prestigious award,” said Louis Tuck, COO/CFO, The Headrest Safe Company. “We would like to thank the dedicated NRA publications’ editorial staffers who tested and evaluated hundreds of new products before making their 2024 Golden Bullseye selections.”


This video shows the basic Headrest Safe which has a locked, hinged access plate, but does not slide out.

Protect Against Vehicle Break-ins and Thefts
In recent years, there has been a significant increase in vehicle break-ins and “smash and grab” incidents. After busting windows to get into your car or truck, thieves know to check the glove box, under the seat, and the center console. The Headrest Safe provides secure, discrete protection for guns and valuables. With a quick-access biometric reader and keypad, you have rapid access to whatever is securely stored.

This Mother’s Day, Think about Family Gun Safety

julie golob child safety

julie golob child safetyTeam Smith & Wesson shooter Julie Golob has a message for Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 12th). Julie writes: “While some are using Mother’s Day week to push a gun control agenda, I’d like to encourage moms to ‘Take a Moment’. Talk to your kids about firearms safety. Help them learn what to do around firearms and have an open, honest discussion about guns and gun safety.

I truly believe that, no matter if you are pro-gun or anti-gun, everyone should know and understand the basic rules of firearm safety. It is equally important for parents to have the discussion about guns and what to do if your child finds one. Both the NSSF’s Project ChildSafe and the NRA’s Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program are excellent. They offer resources for parents, educators, and child care providers to help ensure kids stay safe.

In this video, Julie encourages parents to have “the talk” about firearm safety with their kids sooner rather than later, and provides tips for how to have a helpful discussion. Sherra Scott, a mom and a certified NRA instructor, agrees with Julie: “Whether you have firearms in your home or not, if you have children in your life, please watch this video and talk WITH them about firearm safety and what to do if they come into contact with a firearm.”

Lawshield Travel guide state national PDFAccording to Kirk Evans, President of U.S. LawShield, “Because there are so many details for people to understand before they leave home, we developed state-specific guides to help folks stay on the right side of the law. Take the time to learn the laws before hitting the road because they are not the same everywhere. Don’t wait until after the fact to plan for your guns when preparing for your trip.”

Two Knowledgeable Attorneys Explain State Law Issues When Traveling

In this video U.S. LawShield Independent Program Attorneys Richard Hayes and Emily Taylor provide essential information for traveling with firearms. Discussion includes essential information needed to stay safe and responsible while traveling with firearms.

Know the Laws of Every State You Travel Through
“There is no standardization of gun laws within the 50 individual states, so even if a state recognizes your handgun license or permit, they may have additional restrictions on certain types of firearms, magazines, or ammunition,” said Evans. “In some states, it’s illegal for a non-resident to possess a firearm in the passenger compartment of their vehicle. And, because you are subject to a state’s laws when you are in that state, if you break their laws, you could be committing a crime — whether you think you intentionally broke the law or not,” he added.

“Remember, not knowing the law is not a valid defense,” stated Evans. “Use our Travel Guide for Gun Owners for whatever state you’re traveling through, and learn which states honor your carry license or permit before you go.”

NRA Annual Meetings in Texas — Be Careful When Booking Rooms

nra annual meeting dallas texas tx hutchison convention

NRA Warns Against Booking and Advertising Scams at NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits
The 153rd NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Dallas, Texas takes place May 16-19, 2024. As the event draws near, the NRA emphasizes the importance of vigilance against predatory practices in the Tradeshow Industry. Exhibitors and attendees should be wary of various deceptive tactics, spanning from tradeshow services to hotel accommodations, attendee lists, and advertising claims. While some offers may be genuine, many are scams that could lead to financial loss without the promised services or outcomes. Some of the most common scams include:

1. Hotel Rooms/Fake Booking Agents: For the 2024 show, the NRA has partnered with ConferenceDirect as the Official Housing Partner for the Annual Meetings. Scammers may impersonate legitimate hotel representatives or housing bureaus, offering discounted rates to exhibitors and attendees. However, these offers often result in nonexistent reservations or subpar accommodations. CLICK HERE for official NRA Annual Meeting Hotel Reservation Site.

2. Advertising Sales: Scammers lure exhibitors with false promises of exposure through publications, event guides, or online platforms, exaggerating their reach and effectiveness. Some vendors misrepresent advertising channels and ROI, persuading exhibitors to purchase ad space based on misleading claims.

3. Attendee List Sales: Beware of scammers claiming access to comprehensive attendee lists and offering to sell this data to exhibitors. The NRA does NOT sell or distribute attendee lists for the Annual Meetings, so any such offer is a scam.

To avoid falling victim to scams, attendees should:

1. Only use NRA Official Partners
2. Exercise caution with unsolicited offers
3. Do NOT provide personal or financial information without verification

When in doubt, contact the NRA Shows and Exhibits Division to verify that offers or solicitations are from Official Partners. By remaining informed and vigilant, exhibitors and attendees can safeguard themselves.
