    Bad Gun Safes

    I've run across a few videos over the years that demonstrate how unsafe some safes are. So I though maybe we need a thread showing which safes people should avoid, both full size gun safes and handgun safes.

    Here's a demo of two such safes:
    YouTube - ADG Sports gun safe
    YouTube - GunVault Mini Deluxe gun safe

    Just tried that on my gunvault, didn't work. I'd have to say he got a bad one. This is my second one, the electronics are not waterproof. Our toddler proved that. But even after the keypad broke it was still secure. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another

    It may be because of videos like these that manufacturers find and fix their faults. It'd be nice if they did that better before they left the factory to start with.

    I haven't had any problems with my GunVault safe either.

    Every manufacturer of every product makes lemons from time to time. I guarantee you can look up any safe and find reported problems online.

    Wow. I have had the gunvault mini deluxe on my save-for-it list for a while now. I think now that, if I do decide to purchase one, I will be sure to do it at a reputable local retailer where I can return/exchange it if I end up getting a faulty one.

    Life experience shows that getting returns and exchanges done with faulty online purchases is both expensive and time consuming. Won't be buying one of these online, now.

    Thanks for posting!
