Browning gun cabinet offers “safe” storage

A new, wide-bodied gun safe from Browning can hold up to 65 long guns.

Canadian federal law requires that all guns be securely stored away when not in use, and what better way is there to do that and really protect them than put them in a specially designed safe?

Browning’s Hell’s Canyon extra wide gun safe is built for exactly that purpose. It features an 11-gauge steel body with “Pry-Stop End,” 1¼-inch diameter chromed locking bolts on three sides of the door to help prevent break-ins. The safe also has “ThermaBlock” fire insulation, which provides 1,680 F, 90-minute fire protection.

Buyers can choose either a new automotive-grade gloss black or textured charcoal finish. To help avoid scratches and damage, the safe has a beige fabric interior, “Quick Access Barrel Rack and Scope Saver” with adjustable shelving and Pistol rack. Owners can squeeze up to a whopping 65 long guns (depending on gun sizes) into it, so this safe offers more than enough storage space for the average gun owner.

It’s 60 inches tall, 56 inches wide and 25 inches deep, and with a weight of 1,055 pounds, no one is going to carry it away.

Suggested retail prices range from US$3,249 to $3,689, depending on options and finishes. For more visit

A bright light from High Noon

Browning, the company many people probably more closely associate with firearms, has added six new LED multi-function lights to its flashlight and spotlight product line for 2017. Included in that group is the new High Noon USB rechargeable model, which offers brightness levels from 50 to 915 Lumens. That gives it an effective distance of 125 to 550 yards (114 to 503 metres), depending on the mode.

The High Noon Spotlight floats, and it’s waterproof at a depth of three feet for up to 30 minutes. It uses a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery that is rated for 500 charging cycles.

To add to its versatility, The High Noon spotlight includes a USB charging port, which allows it to be used as a power source for charging other electronic devices like smartphones. It has a tough polycarbonate housing with rubberized “soft touch” finish and flexible rubber lens ring. A built-in, adjustable stand allows for hands free use, which could be really handy for in-field equipment repair jobs. Despite having all those features, it weighs in at just 14.5 ounces.

Suggested retail price is US$109.99.
