How safe is your gun safe from a toddler ?
Check this out, really suprising !

I'm calling complete and utter bs on this one. Yes small cheap safes can be thrown down on a corner and broken open and a child could watch you push a 3 or 4 button code and replicate it but half those safes weren't locked and I know that kid isn't better at picking locks than me.
Anti-gunner bs!
I'd like to see that kid pick up my 200# safe that's lag bolted to the floor and wall.

yeah my combo has 7 button sequence. and im pretty sure the manuel tells you to bolt, or other wise secure it down. this video was rigged.

Here's the link to the detailed report that was part of this story. I agree that the kid was coached, but that's just a small part of the story. Worth reading and watching a couple videos from the detailed report if you own one of these or are considering buying one. And, none of this even looks at what common hand tools will do to them.

I only trust combination locks. And the box must be bolted down.

Got A cheep safe. But its bolted to the shelf which is also reinforced. It can be pryed open still. But locks just slow down crucks and kids. Your better off teaching kids that guns are not toys

Why would someone leave a safe unbolted and laying around for a kid to play with? You would think a cop would know better.

If any kid can pick up and drop my 800 pound safe to get it open, I'll let them have anything in it.

a child of that age should NEVER see that safe OR see you putting your weapon in it!!!:mad:

This looks like BS to me..

My safe was almost 1200lbs empty and now chalk full of guns and ammo.. I bet its got to be close to a ton now and in the basement.. If you can even budge it nevermind bounce it you can have it.. But you have to load it yourself lol
