Sportsman Steel Safe's History

In 1978, Fred Hand, a AAA skeet shooter & avid sportsman, founded Sportsman Steel Safes with one goal: build the best gun safe in the USA. And he did! Where gun safes had 1/8" steel bodies, Fred designed thick 1/4" steel bodies with massive 1/2" thick doors. At the time, his vision of selling heavy-duty safes at factory-direct prices was revolutionary! Soon our reputation as the best deal in town grew. Soon there was a multi-month waiting list to get one of our products.

In 1991, Kevin Hand, Fred's son, graduated from college and began working at the company. It wasn't long before he took the company to the next level. Kevin introduced our 6000 Degree Concrete Fire System and designed the highest grade gun safe ever built: our beloved Crown Series. In 2001, Kevin left Sportsman Safe and founded Pentagon Safes. His manufacturing philosophy was simple: Build a commercial level safe and do it factory-direct to keep prices affordable for all Americans. Soon Pentagon was revolutionizing the gun safe & vault door industry! It was then that Kevin and his design crew invented the first ever "4 Barrel Relocking System" and "5-Point Sealing Jig-Saw Door." Wanting to keep the family business together, Kevin brought Pentagon's technology back to Sportsman Steel Safes to form the most advanced safe & vault door manufacturing plant in the USA.

Today, we build over 15 security products including Gun Safes, Vault Doors, Nuclear-Biological-Chemical Vault Doors, Blast Doors, Modular Vault Rooms, Storm Shelters & TL Jewelry Safes with Seismic Motion Detectors. Our client list includes the FBI, CIA, Homeland Security, U.S. Secret Service, Quantico, The Smithsonian, DEA, AFT, Marines, Army, Navy, "The Price is Right" & 100s of police stations around the country. Sportsman Steel & Pentagon are currently designing our first Electromagnetic-Pulse Doors (EMP) & Radiation Door. All our products come with a limited life time warranty and can be ordered with attempted-break-in warranties for a nominal fee.
