I see a lot of fingerprint scanners such as timeclocks, my IBM and Toshiba laptops have them etc etc
Has one been applied to a gun safe yet?
Might be a cool way to quickly get a gun out and only make it available to the right people.

You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

They do have some. I will see if I can find a link to one for you.
Oops. Miggy beat me to it.

Sargent/Greenleaf makes standard dial locks and electronic locks for safes around the world, including a couple of biometric ones. The one that looks like a standard electronic lock is priced ~$600 MSRP, as compared to ~$250-400 for the "normal" stuff.
GunVault has a biometric version of its small safes.
bioMETRX (Sequiam) makes a variety of biometric-controlled items, including a small safe.

They work, but they're pretty expensive...I'd put the money towards a Browning (short) safe. (Probably only twice the $$$ for 20x the room and 1000x the security while away from home.)

If they are anything like our Biometrix at work, it won't work half the time, and the other half...your buddy can come in and put their finger in after you've swiped your passcard and it accepts their print as yours! Let's hope not though.

We use biometrix fingerprint scanners at work and they cause me more problems than any other security system we have.
They don't work half the time , and they loose the stored fingerprints every now and then.

I have a Sequiam Biovault 2.0. It works. But...I needed to scan in all my fingerprints to be sure I could open it.
I am in the woodworking business so my fingers are usually full of filler, sawdust, finishing material, etc. I rarely have a "good" first scan so need to scan another finger.
As far as really using it --- it is for storage. I don't have any children at home so my HD gun is next to me in the bedside table.
