 ROCHESTER, N.Y. (September 21, 2011) – SentrySafe, the Rochester, New York based world leader in residential and small office security-storage-fire rated containers, recently unveiled the Home Defense Center.  This innovative gun safe will deliver on an unmet consumer need, providing quick and quiet access to firearms when it matters most.

Designed, developed and manufactured in the USA, the Home Defense Center by SentrySafe combines quick and quiet access with high-end security into one innovative corner design.  This new gun safe features a zero feedback electronic lock, jumbo 1-inch bolts, patent pending pry-resistant door design, ready pistol presentation and a unique barrel containment system.  All of these features are secured within the unit's heavy, 12 gauge steel body, making this gun safe not only quick and quiet, but secure against unwanted access. 

"We continue to listen to our customers and develop products that meet their safety and storage needs," said Jim Brush, SentrySafe president and CEO.  "Our new larger bolts provide optimal security against unwanted access, while the whisper quiet hardware allows for silent entry into the gun safe."

The Home Defense Center is designed to hold one pistol and one tactical weapon, or a defense shotgun, allowing users the choice for a quick and quiet self-defense situation.  Gun safes are designed to defend the contents contained inside the unit.  The all new, innovative Home Defense Center is designed to help defend home, family and property while guarding against unwanted access to firearms.  This unit has an MSRP of $499.99 and is available at Cabela's, as well as sporting goods dealers across the U.S. 

Founded in 1930, SentrySafe is the world leader in offering fire-resistant and security storage solutions for important documents and valuables. A global presence, SentrySafe today produces more fire-resistant chests, files, safes, security storage containers and gun safes than any other company in the world.  The company's manufacturing headquarters is in Rochester, N.Y., and sales operations exist in the U.S., Canada, Japan and UK. SentrySafe distributes products to more than 54 countries worldwide.  SentrySafe employs more than 450, most of whom are located in the company's headquarters. For more information visit
