Default gun safe vs burglar

Are there any gun safes that you can open super quickly if a burglar is there? Ultimately wouldn't you want retina or finger print scan on your safe so it just pops open for you? (An interface to where it doesnt make it obvious to intruders that that is how you open it)

Default quick gunsafes

There are a few where the safe bolts down (or not) and it has multi-finger combination. Some of these can be spring loaded for faster draw. There's also hidden gun holders concealed behind a clock,picture frame,etc.

Do an internet search for "biometric gun safes" and you'll find all you need to know and whats available.

Default partial combination

Well, here's an idea for gun safes with a combination dial:

For faster access, pre-dial the first two numbers of the combination. THen all you have to do to open the thing is turn it in the correct direction to the last number. When you're leaving the house for the day, or when kids are playing unsupervised in the house and you want more security, spin the dial and go back to the regular way of opening it.

For a handgun, try the Gunvault. Four finger grooves and a chagable combination. For long guns, an electronic combo lock.

If one has small children in the home, I can understand one's concern in locking up all the guns. I know some will disagree with this, and rather go with the creed of teaching children not to touch firearms but I find few children and their friends that I trust that far.

Take children out of the equation, and all one has to deal with is a spouse or girl friend.

I once got caught with my gun put up, unloaded, and ammunition in another place; while burglars broke into our home. My children were young at the time and I felt differently than I do now. Fortunately my bark scared them out of the house, and by the time I got my gun they were gone.

That incident, which happened over twenty years ago, changed the way I've slept ever since. Since then, I've kept a loaded gun and two dogs at my bedside, with one light on at all times.

After three months of safes installation at my farm-house, I got a gun-vault installed as well. I went for multiple lock system and a long numeric code. My 13-year old son wanted to play burglar vs police, so we did a mock drill to find out that it took me more than three minutes to unlock it. Even my son got me before it could access my gun. That was so idiotic, I realized.

I teach the kids my own and if someone comes over the guns are looked if not they are in easy reach one light on and dog never without a gun for personal reach and protection

No, not for me. I want it reliable and durable. I prefer a stronger built box that will at least buy you a little extra time with a thief, especially if bolted down to something solid. I want it to open every time I need it. No batteries or electronics for any of my stored defensive guns. If you want it even faster, pre-punch all or part of the code when you go to bed. Clear it when you get up.
