I like those ones but some people who own them say if your finger isn't in exactly the right place it won't open. Do you have one of these and have you experienced that?Thanks.
Get the bio safe lock. In a night time stress situation you'll may forget the combo. The bio wont forget your fingerprint and only you can open it.

My friend has one of these and he has nothing but trouble with it. He now uses a lockable cash box.I've seen some good in wall safes (that uses gravity to slide open the door). I'm considering getting one but my wife likes to rearrange the bedroom every couple of years.Another Idea is to use a nightstand and install a lock on the top Drawer or use a locking filing cabinet (there are some nice ones out there) . Leave it locked when your not home or not in your room and at night leave it locked but stick the key in it.DOJ be damned you still have to buy a lock with every gun purchase according to BATFE unless your lucky enough to find an FFL that either doesn't know or is willing to look the other way (Stay the heck away from Ronning arms in Modesto). And there is no law that requires you to secure your firearms. There is however a law that you can get in trouble if a minor gets a hold of your Unsecured firearm and does something stupid with it.If you have a business Buy 1 gun lock for your business. Sell it back to yourself for $.01 Give yourself a receipt and then right it off on your taxes as a loss. Show receipt when you pick up your gun. Sell gun back to your business at full price and repeat as needed.
Zombies?? Funny you should ask.. I just got mine yesterday.. I bought it on line @ Wal-Mart.com. It's a pretty awesome little safe.. I got the delux model (20.00 more) because it has a light and a few other little functions.. It's so easy to set up that Obama could even do it.. DOJ Approved. http://www.walmart.c...duct_id=4861130

I'm not sure what he did or if his even had a key or it came with a key. His batteries die really fast and he has had to make 3 or 4 tries to get it to open with fresh batteries and You have to open his to change the batteries. his is the same style but that doesn't mean its the same brand or type. his coulda been "MAD IN CHINA" (Yes I used MAD instead of Made)
Yea, if you lock the key in the safe and the batteries go bad, then you will probably have a small problem getting it open. Just a hunch, I'm not 100% on that, probably 99.9% sure but you never know. LOL!!

You assume too much! I respectfully disagree with your statement. There are many clever ways of hiding a weapon in relitevly plain sight which stand a much better chance of going unnoticed than any of those handgunsafes mentioned earlier. If a perp breaks into your home while you not there you handgun will be gone along with you safe. Most of my weapons are kept in my Large rifle safe which would be next to impossible to remove from my home without a crane. Others are in hiden location throughout. WKC why would you put your handgun in a safe next to your be when you sleep at night. Are you worried about the kids entering unnoticed while you sleep to retreve your weapon? I sure wouldnt want to fumble with any safe while trying to awake from a slumber in a hurry.
The only thing I see as wrong with a bunch of guns around the house is if you can get to them without a Combination or Key so can an intruder or anyone else. My friend that had the problem with his Mini Safe did that. I asked him Why? You can CCW on your own property without a Permit. Having multiple SECURE places to keep one gun is better then multiple Unsecure Guns about the house.

Bingo!! That is exactly what I'm worried about. OR, what if I just had it in my drawer and then FORGOT it in my drawer for whatever reason. Then, get a call that afternoon that my son or his friend was in a gun related accident at my house.I understand what you guys are saying in that you have trained your kids. BUT, kids WILL be kids. Peer pressure isn't a made up thing. I KNOW that kids who have been properly trained on how to handle a firearm have either shot themselves or there friends etc. You hear about well educated ADULTS having ACCIDENTS where they thought the firearm was unloaded.I agree that it would be FASTER to have access to my handgun without a safe, BUT this is the next best thing.As for theft, YES, a burglar could and probably would take my gun-vault with my handgun in it. That's a risk I am willing to take for the convenience of the gunvault. My Large safe though, I doubt they would have the time as it is bolted down etc.
