Hunting & Holiday Season Gun Safety

Hunting & Holiday Season Gun Safety

The Fall and Winter hunting and holiday seasons are a great time of the year for getting family together to enjoy the tradition of shooting sports. For the most part, children are home from school, and there are more hunting trips planned during the holidays than any other time of the year. Firearms also make great gifts. For these same reasons and many more, statistics show a spike in accidental shootings during this time of the year. Fortunately, these accidents are preventable and simple firearm safety is the answer.

Remember, along with your Second Amendment Right to keep and bear arms comes a great responsibility to protect yourself, your family and everyone else from accidents, which may be caused by your firearms. For most gun owners, there is an instinct and top of mind safety awareness that is exercised every time a firearm is handled.

Here in California, a safe handling demonstration is performed in front of a representative of a licensed FFL dealer before he/she can complete the sale. A certified instructor will show the consumer how to perform a chamber check to see if the firearm is loaded, then safely load and unload the weapon. They will usually take their time and help if the need arises. If the purchaser cannot demonstrate safe handling of the firearm after several attempts, they receive a fail and will not be able to take possession of the firearm thereby stopping the sale. Not all states have similar laws ensuring the safe handling of a firearm.

It’s not enough to just own a firearm or have one in your home for protection. Training is a must and safety needs to be exercised every time a firearm is handled. For any new gun owner, I highly recommend a firearm safety course at the very least and always remember the Safety Rules of Firearms:

  1. Treat your firearm as if it is always loaded!!!
  2. Keep your firearm pointed in a safe direction.
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
  4. Know what you're shooting at, what’s around it, and what's beyond it.

It is wise to lock your firearms in a safe to keep them out of reach of children, teens or inexperienced shooters in your home. A proper safe can also protect your firearms from theft or fire. If you are planning to give a firearm as a gift, or if you are purchasing your first firearm, consider getting a safe to accompany it. If you need assistance in choosing the right safe for your particular situation, give Vault Pro a call and one of our pro’s will be more than happy to help.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a happy and safe holiday season,

Hurricane Harvey and Texas



Hurricane Harvey and Texas

In the aftermath of hurricane Harvey and the devastating floods that followed, we at Vault Pro want to send out our most heartfelt thoughts and prayers to those affected by this terrible natural disaster. We also want to assist those affected in a more tangible way. After a week of watching the complete devastation of Houston, Beaumont, Port Arthur and the surrounding areas…we at Vault Pro have grappled with how to best help those in need.

Vault Pro is making donations to both the Red Cross and the JJ Watt Foundation for Harvey Relief Fund, and encourage all our family and friends to do likewise. We will also make additional donations for every safe, vault door and safe room shelter sold during the month of September.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the historic flooding in South East Texas and Louisiana caused by Hurricane Harvey.

Los Angeles Dodgers Welcome Vault Pro USA and their families for their annual Picnic!

Vault Pro USA Dodger Night and Fireworks

On Friday July 28th, the crew of Vault Pro and their families went to Chavez Ravine to see the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Francisco Giants…and they did just that.

Full house at Dodger Stadium

Vault Pro’s Annual Picnic is simply my way of showing my appreciation to my crew. I have the greatest respect and appreciation for the people who work
with me at Vault Pro. I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you how fantastic my crew really is. From the front office and the world class client experience they provide to the Finish Quality Assurance and Shipping Department for all of their attention to every little detail on our finished products and everyone in between. I know the value of every one of my crew…together they are a great team.


With over 75 in attendance from Vault Pro, we arrived at Dodger stadium in time to see Corey Seager hit the very first pitch of the game to the Dodgers deep into the left-centerfield bleachers, giving the Dodgers a 1-0 lead in the first.

We were seated in the Budweiser Pavilion where the food and drink are included so everyone had plenty to eat and drink. Dodger Dogs and peanuts anyone???

Los Angeles had taken a 2-1 lead in the fifth by converting two walks, a wild pitch, an error and a ground ball into an unearned run.

The Giants starter, Moore held the Dodgers to two hits through his first six innings, only to surrender two runs in the seventh thanks to a walk and a double. The Giants took a 4-2 lead with three runs in the top of the seventh as Nick Hundley and Gorkys Hernandez stroked back-to-back, run-scoring doubles. Jae-Gyun Hwang had tied the game 2-2 with an RBI single.

The Giants’ bullpen was unable to hold a 4-2 lead as George Kontos gave up Yasiel Puig’s RBI ground out and Chris Taylor’s run-scoring single. The score was tied 4-4, setting the stage for Seager.

Seager hit his second home run of the evening, a towering drive over the right field wall on an 0-1 pitch for a go-ahead, two-run shot in the seventh inning, that was followed by another celebration as the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied to beat the San Francisco Giants 6-4. In the ninth star relief pitcher Kenley
Jansen struck out the side on 13 pitches for his 26th save in 27 opportunities.

After the game we all gathered on and around the field for the Dodgers big Friday night fireworks show.

At the end of the night the Dodgers were well in first place in the NL West, having won 37 of their last 43 games. A streak that culminated with them winning 43 out 50 games. A feat that hadn’t been done since the 1912 Giants. The Dodgers are only getting better as the boys of summer season shortens toward the playoffs and the World Series.

Thank you to everyone at Vault Pro. I hope you all had as good of a time as I did.

Once again Vault Pro USA was honored to be a participant at Shot Show. Words don’t adequately describe our experience at this year’s amazing four-day event. Attended by nearly 65,000 people, Shot Show 2017 was one of the biggest events ever in the shooting industry. Every conceivable product or device related to shooting and the shooting sports industry was on display. And of course, there were the safes and vault doors. Every player worthy of being in the industry was there, and Vault Pro was front and center with a booth 50% larger than last year’s in order to accommodate all our new 2017 model safes and vault doors.
Latest Display Safe featuring Level 1 ballistic resistant and U.L. rated 1 hour fire protection.

That Was the Year That Was


It’s the years end once again. Holidays are here & the beginning of a New Year right behind that. Where did the year go? What just happened?

I’ll tell you where it went…I’ll tell you what happened…Vault Pro Kicked Ass!!!...That’s what happened.


Vault Pro built 35% more vault doors, 32% more safes and a staggering 50% more modular shelters than during the previous year. Check out the pics of some of the more unusual custom security products we proudly build right here in the USA…Santa Fe

Springs, California to be exact.


Custom Double Door Display Safe
Check out this one of a kind Double Door Display Safe that debuted at the 2016 SHOT Show. It is the brain child of Heath Moore at Moore Security in Houston. We have a twist on this to reveal for the Dallas Safari Club show in January 2017 as well as at the 2017 Shot…stay tuned for details.
Enough about last year…let’s get on with the New Year 2017.

Custom Triple Door Safe and Art

For Vault Pro’s 2017 line up of Safes, Vault Pro has developed a new Auto Detent System to save and protect the premium finishes on all 4-way locking bolt systems. This also protects the locking system itself from damage when the door is closed and the locking bolts are extended.

Vault Pro has increased the depth on all our 50” and 60” wide safes without increasing the cost. There will be a 20% increase in size of 760 safes (body to go from 25” depth to 31”). This will allow for at least a dozen more long guns to be safe kept.

There will be an 11% size increase in 750 safes (body to go from 25” depth to 28”) Depth including handle to be 31”. This will allow for at least another 8 long guns to be safe kept.


Both the 50” and 60” wide safes are larger and will allow for a greater capacity and Vault Pro didn’t increase the cost by even a penny.


Large locking boltsVault Pro will be producing our Step System Vault Doors with bigger, thicker and stronger 1-1/2” x 4” 360 degree Rotating Locking Bolts. That is twice the steel of 1” bolts and twice the security for the same price.

Vault Pro now offers ADA Accessible Vault Doors. Our new 45” standard size doors can all be built to ADA (American’s with Disability Act) standards. These accessible vault doors meet minimum thru clearance of at least 36”, and thresholds meet ADA standards. Handles and all hardware also meet ADA standards and can be customized for specific client requirements. 

Vault Pro will also offer the option of a heat
activated re-locking system that will more than double lock the locking system and the bolt carriage if someone tries to torch cut or even grind cut the locking mechanism from our safes and vault doors.

That’s a quick roundup of some of the new security products we will be offering this coming year. Stay tuned for even more.

Here is to all of Vault Pro’s fantastic clients…you have allowed us at Vault Pro to provide the most innovative, highest quality, custom and all American made security products available. Merry Christmas and I hope the New Year will be peaceful and prosperous for all of you.

Be Safe!!!
