In 1979, 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 typically had 1/8" 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. In wasn't long until there was a year-round waiting list to even 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 business to the next level. Kevin introduced our 2300 Degree Ceramic 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 manufacturing plant in the USA.
