    What is your bedside gun safe?

    I know a number of you may not use any type safe for your home defense handgun, however I've been thinking I'd like to have one or two in other locations of the house so that when I do want to secure a weapon I don't have to put it in the main safe.

    I'm curious what you use and what your thoughts are on that products.

    Thanks!

    I have the biometric gun vault sitting on my night stand had it for 2 years no problems actually leave it open most of the time only when grandson visits, but it seems to work well.

    Mine isn't exactly a safe it's considered a cabinet which is why I keep it hidden it's the Stack-On IWC-55...




    You could get some of these smaller ones throughout your house and have pictures, art, and mirrors to hide them. It's the Stack-On IWC 11 External Dimensions: 15-3/8" W x 3-7/8"D x 10-3/4" H Internal Dimensions: 14" W x 3-7/8"D x 9-1/4H

    That there in the wall type thing is a pretty damn good idea... kudos to you! If I steal that idea I promise to give you credit if I show anyone else! LOL

    Simple in drawer Gunvault MV500. I only use it when I'm not home, otherwise my pistol is on the bedside table at night.

    I use a gun vault mv300 in my night stand drawer. It is unlocked all the time except when the great grandkids are over, then it is locked. The other guns are locked in a safe.

    Gun Vault Mini with the light in it. It's done great for my intended purpose, to keep my three year old's hands off of it.

    This is what I use
    | Sentry® Safe | Home Defense Center - The first line of defense is you!
    Only shows that it holds 1 shotgun and 1 handgun
    Yeah right
    1 shotgun
    1 22 rifle
    3 pistols
    All easy to get at quickly

    In the bedroom:
    Stack-On Quick Access Pistol Safe - 1028503 | Tractor Supply Company
    In both cars:

    Stack-On | Products | Portable Security Case with Combination Lock

    I know they're not true safes, working towards that option.

    I use V-Lines with the same combo set, simplex push-button locks without batteries. Bottom line is, if it’s not on me, it’s locked up.

    Nightstand:

    Under the bed:



    And I use another for my CCW pistol, that’s in the hallway closet.

    I use a Stack-on quick access drawer safe with the three buttons on top for my carry gun at night. I was just looking for something to keep it away from a curious toddler. It's "at home" at 3 o'clock when she's awake so it's just a precaution but a good one I think. I'm satisfied with the product. The battery lasts a good long while (haven't changed it since last summer and still strong) and it opens when I tell it to.

    If the biometric ones are anything like the thingy on my computer which is supposed to recognize my fingerprint every time, I'm not sure I'd like that. Sometimes it takes a couple swipes and I can have my code punched in faster than that.

    have glock 17 in a quick access gunvault on each floor of my house: upstairs master, main floor mudroom, and basement bedroom. May be overkill but never know when we might here something unsual.
