I can never get a bio-metric safe after watching the videos in Wired Magazines investigation. They show how most of the Stack On safes can be bypassed with a paper clip. Scary stuff.
Kids Can Open Gun Safes With Straws and Paper Clips, Researchers Say | Threat Level | Wired.com
Well, these safes are designed to keep young children away from the guns. If you start hacking at them, then yes, you are going to be able to open them fairly easily. Hopefully, by the time the kids are old enough to start hacking at the safe with tools, they are old enough to know better.
Note - the Stack-On safe that opened by simply dropping it is another matter - that is clearly a poorly designed locking mechanism.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
