As a state trooper, a weapon is part of the job and must be kept safe with children in the house. This purchase had to be made and the reviews were true to the letter. The safe's fingerprint lock works perfectly and I feel comfortable about the safety of my family. If you're married to a policeman or just a gun owner, this is a perfect investment.
I bought this for my husband who is a Police Officer, so he could lock up his gun and small gear items while at home.
He loves this safe and agrees that it is sturdy, practical, and the fingerprint lock works really well. He trusts that it is safe enough to protect children from firearms.
He has even tried to break into it, and can't, especially once it is bolted to the floor.
He thinks this safe is 'the coolest safe' he's ever seen. Definitely a must-buy for someone needing to keep such dangerous items away from children!
I searched for a safe for my gun. One in which I could open quickly in the dark. This one is just the ticket. It's not the kind of safe in which you would leave your gold for a month but it will keep unauthorized users from my gun. It programs easily and opens reliably in less time than I could push buttons. Some have objected to the beep. If you wish to obtain your gun and not give away your position that could be a negative. I like this safe.
Have been using this safe for almost 6 mos now. It works pretty well as far as thumbprint recognition goes. It can handle up to 30 prints. To assist in robust operation, I scanned my right thumbprint 5 different times in slightly different positions. This seems to help ensure 100% positive identification each time I try to open it. Without doing that extra step, the recognition is a little picky and won't always open, which I suppose is a good thing.The other aspects of this safe (construction, weight, strength) are all very good. Three back-wall mounting holes are provided for securing the safe. Two locking bolts provide door security, but that's not enough to meet the CA DOJ requirement for a firearms storage locker (a three-point locking system is required).
I purchased this to mount in my closet for quick access, but it was much larger than I thought. Haven't used it or tried returning it as it may have been my oversight, but I don't remember seeing dimensions posted at the time I purchased it a year or so ago. Appears to be decent quality, but my closet is small, and have to go to a smaller safe.
How accurate was the sizing? Not at all. Don't remember seeing a size, or I just missed it.

Does this safe have the ability to be bolted into the ground or wall somehow? I'm worried about burglars being able to carry my safe away with them but I didn't see any information about how it can be secured down.sc0604 on Mar 28, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
