As for me..i'll go for GunVault Speedvault Biometric Pistol Safe SVB500 comes with hornady bullets... It's a unique design that really works! It is a safe that will stop kids and honest adults from getting the gun while keeping it ready to use if needed, but it is not designed to stop a determined attack though..:P

This is what you get when you buy a "safe" from Costco, Bass Pro Shops and other box stores. This is ALL safes from box stores no matter the brand or name on it. They are junk. They will keep your kids and honest people out. If that's your goal, that's fine. But don't think you are getting quality or that it will have any fire protection no matter what the sticker say.

I've looked into The GunBox and while it has a lot of appeal I'm concerned over the reviews I've read about it being very hard to get into with the fingerprint option. Pin pad safes also have appeal but then I worry about forgetting the code, etc.

We are also open to a large gun safe, one that can be tucked back into a closet and has room for all of our guns. I'm just trying to gather as much information as possible in order to make a good decision and keep our children safe. TIA!

This is the best educational video on the internet about safes and buying them. It will give you all the info you need to make an informed decision, whatever it may be.

If you are looking for a safe to store a single handgun that still gives you quick access when needed I suggest the Titan Gun Safe. They come with a couple brackets that allow you to mount the safe to a wall, piece of furniture, or your metal bed frame. They are very secure, but can be opened quickly using a push button combination. Combinations can include multiple buttons pressed simultaneously, which makes them more secure. My wife and I have two of these in our bedroom where we store our primary handguns.

For a full size safe I happen to like American Security safes, but there are a number of good brands out there. If you live in the OC area you might check out Maximum Security in Santa Ana
