Best Handgun Safes

Different types of guns call for different types of gun safes. The avid and devoted gun fans have their vaults and cabinets of steel and fire resistant materials. A third and smaller type of gun safe exists for those who want to keep their handguns secure. Even the firearms that look less threatening than rifles and guns with scopes need a safe to protect them. Luckily in today’s world the variety of handguns being manufactured has increased to quell the needs of consumers today.

Handguns are great in that they are perfect to carry around and are small enough to protect us in our own homes. But even when we aren’t home and we see fit to bring our weapons around—say in the car or in the office—our handguns need to be kept safe as well. But we can’t carry around heavy gun safes for our small firearms. We need something that doesn’t take a long time to open and is portable to fit in small spaces. For that, we have small fast action safes like the FAS1 Handgun Safe. It’s designed to store semi-automatic handguns and medium revolvers, and has a 7-gauge steel plate door that opens with a gas spring, allowing you access of your weapon immediately. The lock is simple—a push-button lock that is easy to use but still hard to crack.

The Secure – It® Handgun Storage Safe with Combo Lock is a cheap option at around $20 and is handy for at home and when traveling. This is perfectly approved by the TSA (if you are a concealed-weapon permit holder). It can be placed under your car seat, by your bed, or in the trunk of your car as well. It will hold your handgun snugly in a memory foam interior that ensures your weapon is in a tight fit even if you drop your safe or if placed in a car.

Another fast action safe is the Sentry Safe Quick Access Safe 0.08 Cubic Feet. It has a backlit electronic lock steel construction resistant to prying. You can use either a set of codes or your fingerprint to unlock this safe, and there is a backup lock in case the battery dies. Programming your fingerprint will take some effort, but after that opening your safe is quick and easy and comes with little delay. It opens with a compression gas strut. Users of this quick access safe have recommended the practice of locking and unlocking the door. When perfected, you can have your weapon in hand in as little as five seconds.

The increase in need for gun safes these days are due mostly to the influx of media news and updates screaming for greater safety at home. The largest measures should be taken for even the smallest of guns, to prevent bigger news outbreaks that could pertain to your negligently stored gun causing an incident. With that in mind, choose your handgun safe wisely.
