U.S. Marshals Service Turns to GOSAFE for Off-Person Security of Duty Weapons

STAMFORD, Conn. (November 16, 2023) – GOSAFE, maker of the first portable security device that operates inside a firearm, announces the sale of Mobile Safe units to the United States Marshals Service. Deployment of the Mobile Safes will begin with personnel serving in the Minnesota District. 

Intended for the off-person security of firearms, the GOSAFE Mobile Safe will allow U.S. Marshals Service personnel to quickly secure firearms when vaults and other non-portable storage solutions are not available. 

“The daily life of law enforcement professionals at every level is one that varies dramatically and often includes trips to courthouses, correctional facilities or other places where they cannot carry a service weapon,” said GOSAFE co-founder Mark Geist, a decorated combat veteran and law enforcement officer. “The response to the Mobile Safe from law enforcement agencies around the world has been extremely positive as they continue to see how this unique security solution can mitigate departmental risk and enhance public safety.” 

GOSAFE firearm security devices are available in two options: the GOSAFE Mobile Safe and the GOSAFE Mobile Mag. Both products feature a unique, high-security key (multiple key storage solutions also available) and are compatible with all holster varieties and generations of Glock (Glock 17 fits 19X, G34 and G45 and the Glock 19 fits G19). GOSAFE will be available for additional brands and models in the future.

Available to the civilian market and law enforcement agencies, both the Mobile Safe ($79.99 MSRP) and Mobile Mag ($99.99 MSRP) fit safely and securely inside the firearm, in the same manner as OEM magazines, accessible only via a unique-to-user key. With the firearm locked in GOSAFE mode, there is no possibility of an unauthorized user intentionally or accidentally gaining access. The patented technology allows gun owners and professionals to go from loaded and ready to locked whenever and wherever they are. GOSAFE products are available to consumers at Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s stores nationwide, as well as at GoSafeNow.com. Agency and departmental orders can be initiated under the Law Enforcement section of gosafenow.com. 

“We are excited to be working with law enforcement agencies like the U.S. Marshals Service and many others as they go through their testing and evaluation process with GOSAFE products,” Geist said. “Agency buyins like these are a testament to the durability and functionality of the products and we look forward to announcing the finalization of additional agency purchases soon.”

    Interesting concept, but I don’t love the idea of introducing additional failure points into a magazine. Also, limiting you to ten rounds even with the big honking extended baseplate… not ideal.

      It’s a tubular lock at the bottom end of a magazine on a gun that everyone beats the snot out of. What could wrong?

    Re Casey: I’m guessing from the verbiage that the USMS chose the MobileSafe; which does not appear to be a functional mag (I concur with your unease about the functional mag version which appears to be the alternative ‘MobileMag’ offering).

    Most Fed LE are required to install a locking device to prevent unauthorized use (note not necessarily theft) when the issued firearm is not in their possession (or otherwise secured ina vault, etc).

    If they can simply do that via a mag exchange – and not have to remove the chambered round (ergo inevitable ammo cycling issues) – I am intrigued.

    But how long before the first guy loses his key and can’t get the contraption removed?
