Albany Firm Now Shipping Biometric Gun Holsters

Sep 11, 2019

A Capital Region startup focused on firearm safety has begun shipping a one-of-a-kind locking gun holster.

Latham, New York-based Vara Safety expects to ship thousands of locally assembled advanced holster safes that employ strategically placed biometrics to properly secure any handgun, yet allow immediate release.

Vara Founder and CEO Timmy Oh says the devices are on the cutting edge of gun safety technology “that allows people to have both personal protection and effective gun safety, mainly because currently those two values are mutually exclusive.”    The holsters are manufactured in Rochester.

Vara touts support from organizations including the Center for Economic Growth. Here's a link to the company website.
