Message from the Inventor
The motivation to sell GUNPUCKs to other gun owners came from reading the horrific news stories about children and teenagers being injured or killed by loaded guns. We can stop these senseless tragedies through innovation and education.
In addition, I wanted to extend GUNPUCK™ security and readiness to a car, truck, RV, camper or motorcycle.
Keep'em safe, Keep'em ready™
