Hello everyone. I need to get a safe soon and I want to go with a biometric or fingerprint safe. I figured this would be best for quick access when I am half asleep or what not. I just want to get something big enough for about 4-6 handguns, not a super big safe or anything. What brands of safes are reliable in general? And if you have experience with these biometric safes feel free to share your wisdom. Thanks everybody.
Thanks for the links. i may have to check them out.
Of the 3 manufacturers the only one I have any experience with is GunVault, but I've only owned one of their little ones. I like their products in general, though.
I like the idea of the Secure Logic wall safe, although I've never put my hands on one so I don't know what the build is like.
Thanks Arawn, yeah that secure logic does look neat.
I don't have one of the fingerprint safes, but for my "bedside" pistol safe I have a small, 1 gun (room for a beretta 92, extra mag, and tactical flashlight) safe that has finger indexed combination pads on it (the combo "numbers" are just raised dots on pads that are placed like a typical hand layout for fast 4 digit code entry in the dark). It's an electronic lock. It can be bolted to a floor, under a bed or inside a closet, etc.
I got it on cheaperthandirt.com for $65. Works great, holds what I need and is fast to get into. No kid is going to be able to get into it (I have 4 little ones). I keep one of my 9mm's loaded and ready in it at all times. Great little lock box.
Isteki 'bio-secure' handgun safe here. Enough room for 2 guns & 2 mags (depending on how large). I could get my wife's Sig 232 + mag as well as my XD40 (service 4") + mag in. Works awesome, though I had to do a little surgery to disable the 'beep' that goes off when you access it--removed a FET on the PCB that powered the beeper. I used to be an electrical engineer...don't recommend doing such things if you're a novice.
Anyway, good safe for me.
Well folks , sorry but i dont trust the technology at this point . I should note that my primary safe was made in the 40s and it still has the " non tamper " tear gas vials incorporated ( tho i doubt they are any good now lol ) I bought it locked open , and have re combo'd it 4 times since i used it in businesses and employees had the combo from time to time . Now it serves as a small valuables safe and i have in fact sold off my dedicated gunsafes , just keeping key components in the safe with the pistols .
Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .
