    A safe may be a necessary nuisance with young children in the home. If that is not the case, keep it within arms reach.

    Have you looked at the ones that use the mechanical push button locks? I personally don't care for any electronics on a handgun safe.

    Harbor Freight sells a nice little combo safe for less than $40 fwiw. Works wonders for me, plus has a key in case electronics fail (and has a low battery warning light).

    ImageUploadedByFirearms Talk1408710893.196064.jpg these are the only boxes you should look at. With enough online research, this is where you will end up! Top rated box, no electronics to fail, and resets easy if wrong code is entered in a panic.

    I would have to go with a biometric safe if I had children in the house. In a life or death situation it would be all I can do to get my finger on the scanner. I have a hard time getting my key ready when the bottom of a grocery bag is tearing.

    Those bio safes are great if a bad guy has a pair of tin snips or hacksaw. Ill pass on owning anything that opens up with a part of me, attached or not.

    Something you haven't seen before with a mechanical pushbutton lock.

    A backup? A lockout? Retrofittable? Optional? Yes....Available soon!

    you watch too many bad movies. biometric devices look for body temperature. chopped off body bits don't work on biometric devices.

    another Hollywood / TV bogusosity: there is no need to trace phone calls. the connection is logged on a computer the instant the phone is answered. One of the few things NCIS gets right.

    There are a lot of serious things to be considered when looking at what I refer to as a lock box vs the term safe.

    If the purpose is to protect children there might be a very good need for it.
    I can understand that if the application is needed!
    I have raised 4 children, have 5 Grandchildren. I Have had weapons
    around the home being in the military and also a career in Law
    Enforcement of almost 30 years. And not Once have I ever had any
    problems with children and guns! I educated them all early and instilled
    respect and safety. And if they ever wanted to
    see one they knew they were not to touch it but come and get me and
    they could see one anytime. The key is the curiosity was eliminated. And
    they all got to shoot them when we went to the range. When they were
    12 they had one or two of their own. So maybe a lot of the issues are a
    parenting issue of education, safety and familiarization?
    2. In consideration for purchasing one of the LOCK BOXES since it will not
    deter a thief one second so I do not think of them as a Safe. Is the
    ability of the owner to access it quickly! In a critical situation when in fear
    and the adrenaline is running ramped Fine Motor Skills Leave you. (Fingers
    do not work and the mind is boggled) You do not have time to mentally
    analyze or process complex thoughts. So having to type in a code,
    numbers or spin dials to align things is a certain recipe for disaster!
    So with this said selecting one is a very important decision and should not
    just be made on its cosmetic appearance but on functionality and rapid
    instantaneous availability of the weapon during critical times when seconds
    could mean life or death to you and the family. There are also other ways
    you can make your weapons inaccessible to children depending on age but
    readily available to you as an adult. Only some thoughts when purchasing
    one of these units!
