Gun peeps: Good "SMALL" gun safe recommendation - September 27, 2010, 03:03 PM

ok now that the little one is walking around, it is time i come up with a plan to keep my sig 9mm away from his hands.

I have a trigger lock, but i want to get something that is small, and quick access.

A quick google search found a decent biometric safe. Decent reviews.

but i know a lot of you folks play with fire arms, so curious if anyone else wanted the same as me.

Quick ability to get to it at night, in the dark, but keep out of kids hands..

thanks

Funny this thread comes up. My friend just picked up a Gunvault MB500 because his son is now a toddler.

I was playing with it this weekend. Biometric w/Key back-up. Smooth action. Popped right open the second he touched it. The lock was pretty quiet too. Not a big CACHUNK to give away what you're doing.

I liked it. Will probably get one when I have a need for it.
(They make larger sizes if needbe).

When going with a small safe I think it best to hide it. A small safe no matter how "crack proof" the locking mechanism is, will always be vulnerable to getting picked up and hauled off. Yes you can bolt then to the wall, but a persistant theif will find a way and or trash your place doing it.

I recomend something like this wall safe
Mesa Safe Adjustable Hidden Wall Safe - MAWS2113ECSD at The Home Depot

I have used a similar model behind a picture, and even better... under the carpet in the floor of my closet. By hiding it, you can completely avoid the temptation to crack or just lift the entire thing.

Of course in another room I have an old jewelers safe, which houses a few dozen and can not be easily cracked or removed.

Won't keep it from being stolen although you can bolt it down to make it harder. It will keep the little one away from it, and it is quick and easy to get into it.

Which model no. is that? We didn't see one that big. That's nice. That's nice enough that'd I want to put my watches and pens in.

i honestly dont care if the gun gets stolen, so not going to get a big one or wall mounted one.

Trying to stay under $200. All i care about is quick access, but not easy for the kiddo to get to it.

I have a small collection of rare/expensive pens. I've got one Clinton signed a bill with, one used by Adam Clayton Powell, a Cartier, etc.

Oh, then something like this would work.

EDIT - read some mixed reviews

It should come in under your $200 mark, yes?

Hmmm. Some love - some hate. I'd check to see if there have been any software or updates.
