1.) So I've been looking at various safes and seem to keep being drawn back to the GunVault biometric series. From many of the reviews these seem to be great safes for handguns and other small valuables. However the consensus seems to be that they aren't as reliable as they claim for battery life. What would be some other good options. I would like a safe that doesn't need a key that can be found and used easily. 2.) I have narrowed down my first handgun to either the Glock 19 Gen4, XD or XDm, possibly thinking the Walther P99 last in the list. I really wanted to go with a Sig P229 however the Glock 19 or XD's are more in my price range. I don't have a ton of options around here locally to purchase other than a few small shops and one big box store being Scheels (read: BassProShops, Cabela's, Dicks Sporting Goods, etc) The Scheels store here is about $75 - $100 cheaper on average for new items but what should I look for if I am considering used options at these different stores? Sorry for the long post but am trying to fit as much as I can into one post at a time instead of a bunch of little ones.
