Tane Alarm Products and The Pistol Pad have teamed up to offer an easy to install, tamper resistant "Panic Alarm" for handguns. Presently the FBI estimates there are 40 million guns loaded and unsecure in the U.S. The Pistol Pad idea came about as a result of gun owners and alarm customers being conflicted between keeping handguns secured while at the same time wanting them totally accessible. The Pistol Pad resolves this issue by allowing immediate, unrestricted access to authorized individuals. To operate it simply place the magnetic contact through the trigger guard and turn the key switch to arm. By lifting the handgun from the pad you have immediately armed yourself; activated the local panic alarm and alerted central station of a panic situation in which "A Gun Has Been Deployed".
It's dimensions allow it to fit in any night stand or desk draw, yet will fit any wireless transmitter.
