Default I've never seen one of these........

I was looking at the Gun Vault site. I have a nice little Gun Vault attached to my bed from that can (barely) hold my 4 pistols. I came across this nice little gun safe. I think it would be great to have this mounted on the wall next to the bed for quick access. It would keep the gun safe from children or from being stolen and what a handy access for that bedside gun. What do you think? I think I am going to get one at some time in the future. Might be good for a car, too, if you can find somewhere to mount it.

It'll be a while before I get one. I have to wait until my money situation improves.

I like the design. Very interesting. I have a gun vault that is different. But it is a Gun Vault. I have it mounted under the front seat of my Blazer. The one I have is a very strong product.

The gun vault is a nice little safe and will do a great job of keeping the kids out of your guns while you still have reasonably quick access to your defensive weapon. It is worth it on that account.

The safe will deter the casual burgular, but will not deter a determined thief, who will just rip it off the wall, no matter how you mount it. It that happens, you lose you guns, your safe and have wall repairs to do.

Get the biometric version. Faster and easier access in a critical situation.

Yep. These safes are not for theft deterrent. They are a definitely limited to keeping youngsters out.

I already have a bedside Gun Vault. I just thought the design of this one is nice for easy access of your one "go to" gun.

I've been using a very similar design for 15 years. The drop open door/holster make access very quick.

Personally I stay away from batter powered safes though, "Murphy and All", mine employed a 4 button mechanical "pharmacy lock". Punch in the code, twist at dial, and it drops open.

Elecronics have become more popular and I've not seen the PRX lock style in quite awhile now somI don't know if there still available but IMHO, mechanical will always be more reliable than electronic.

Good Luck

Tack
