A Mission For Safety & What’s Next

Vara Safety CEO and Founder, Timmy Oh created Reach because he believed children’s deaths from firearm accidents is a regrettable and heart-wrenching issue. 

The Firearm Storage Patterns in the U.S. Homes with Children study shows more than 55% of US homes with children and firearms have one or more guns in an unlocked place. Such a need to prevent gun-related accidents led Timmy to continue the Reach project beyond the prototype phase.

Gradually, Timmy’s mission reached the gun community and led to the start of Vara Safety. Now, as a 10-member team, our objective remains the same:  to create safer homes. Homes with gun owners can now carry positive values of firearm safety and protection for all those who live inside.

The Vara Safety mission is to create highly engineered products like Reach. We want to satisfy the need for both safe firearm storage and immediate access in an emergency.

With Reach launching earlier this summer, we are one step closer to enacting our mission. The results of our first test run of 20 units will be released this July, and production for our first 1,000 units will follow shortly after.

In addition, Reach is now available for preorder through OpticsPlanet! Our partnership with OpticsPlanet will expand our mission to thousands and provide our buyers with premium customer support from trusted hunting, shooting, and outdoor gear resellers.

As the first of its kind, the Reach holster safe is an innovative take on the traditional box gun safes. 

Reach is a biometric holster safe that provides immediate access without compromising personal security. Reach works by using your thumbprint to unlock your handgun in under a second. 

Unlike other fingerprint readers, Reach features a premier biometric sensor for accurate fingerprint capture and high reliability. A charging mount keeps the safe plugged in for power and can be used to secure Reach next to the bed, in the closet, under a desk, or a vehicle. The Reach locking mechanism uses high strength metal alloy to resist thieves. Each safe can fit more than 150 handguns through changeable holster inserts. 

Responsible gun owners can now rely on a biometric safe that provides fast access, personal protection, and biometric security.
