    Pistol Safe Recommendations...

    I am in the market for a pistol safe. I would like it to have the following characteristics if possible:

    1. easy to get into quickly without a key
    2. somewhat portable
    3. top opening so it could sit in a drawer
    4. large enough to fit 2 medium auto pistols
    5. securable in multiple locations (via chain for example)
    6. checkable in airline luggage
    7. waterproof

    What are your suggestions? Thanks.

    I don't know of one that exists with all the features you listed. That may be the problem...

    The waterproof / ailine luggage requirement is tough to fill with the other requirements you listed. You may need a safe for storing the gun and a gun case while traveling.

    I've been looking at the GunVaults, but that Cabela drawer safe looks like it might be just the solution I needed.

    Thanks.

    I got the non-bio version of this safe and love it. You can get a cable to lock it to watever. It is fast to use and has millions of combinationsto open (or the bio version but I was not willing to pay that much). Real easy to use.

    I have looked at quite a few small handgun safes... I really don't think you're going to find one that fits all of your criteria in one unit. Especially when it comes to either the waterproof component or something to slip into checked luggage and fly with.

    However you should be able to find what you are looking for with just two types of safes or hard cases for under $100. Several good ones have already been mentioned here.

    If you or anyone does find one case to do it all, please post a link here as I'd be interested in one of those too.

    I do like the Cabela's Drawer Pistol Safe posted by BlueWolf, but I doubt it's waterproof and I'm not putting a 14 pound safe that size in my luggage to fly with.
