For a handgun safe you will need to spend more for something that is better built if you want reasonable security and quick, reliable access. If you look at one that uses the mechanical pushbutton locks, it will probably last you a lifetime. They are also made from heavier steel (from 14ga up to 7ga). You will need to spend $200.00 +, but only once for the 10 ga and 7ga ones. The 14ga one is around $175.00. The electronic ones usually break in a few years, so by the time you buy two of them.... you see my point. Buy quality and buy it once. It's really not that much more for the peace of mind.
