I know some are against the electronic safes and I tend to agree, I really don't want batteries to fail me at the worst possible time. So what brand/model whatever would you use to lock up a single home defense handgun?
When the grand kids come over, the 3 guns I own go into a safe I got at Gander Mountain for $30. It's very similair in appearance to the one recommended by the 1st responder to your initial post. It's a lot cheaper but does the same job. You don't need technology for a simple issue like this.

Here's an option for you that uses no batteries or electronics, can be mounted just about anywhere (horizontally or vertically), and is probably the strongest single handgun storage box on the market (3/16" steel construction).

Glenn-that's a great looking deal, how about a web-site or name of manufacturer?
Thanks

Thanks. I make them here in San Antonio. I had the website in my signature but apparently I wasn't allowed to do that. I don't want to break any of the rules here. FAS1SAFE is the company name and you can find us online and we just set up a facebook page. We are also on a couple other forums.

I absolutely agree. I have 2 rifles and a handgun, and my daughters have shot all of them (the 15 yr old likes the .22 and the 9 yr old likes the 30-30). The girls know what the guns can do and what not to do with them. Most of the time when I go to the range at least one of them goes with me. Neither of them cares much about the guns (except the 15 yr old wants a pink handgun, she's very girlie).
I keep the handgun in a small keypad/key safe by the bed that stays locked during the day and I open it up at night and sleep with it that way. My kids know what's in the safe and we don't hide anything from them. The rifles are in hard cases w/ bolt locks on them. The same holds true with most things (like alcohol) if you don't make it "taboo" and you educate them they usually won't get stupid with it.
Mainly the locks/safe are there so I don't come home and find an intruder with my gun in his hand. I would like, in the future, to get another (maybe between the studs style) safe for the downstairs too.
Congrats on the little one, and make sure to enjoy every minute!

That is an awesome looking safe and would work perfectly for me. Gotta be honest though, price is my only reservation.

That safe above looks very cool. I have a safe in my closet that is bolted down. If someone wanted it bad enought they could demolish my closet and get it. But that is not what it is for. I bought it at Harbor Freight for about $20. It's not fire proof. But it is definately kid proof. One thing to remember. Even when your child is old enough to be trusted, their friends may not be trust worthy.

I think you have really narrowed your market segment even with a 25% discount.
