Handgun safes come in many different sizes, styles, brands, locks and features but they all serve the same general purpose and that’s to keep the contents safe and secure. Gun safe Pros offers a large selection designed to protect your investment against burglary and damage. Many are even created to stand up against fire and flooding. Whatever your personal needs are and no matter how large or small your collection is, you will find just what you’re looking for here.
Features to Consider
Fireproof – If there is a fire, the last thing you are going to think about is grabbing your guns. A fire is one of those tragic events that can happen to anyone. Some handgun safes are fire- resistant and offer different ratings. Some can keep your contents unharmed at 1400°F for up to 30 minutes.
Water-resistant – Natural disasters occur more and more often in places that certainly aren’t expecting it. No one can ever be fully ready for a hurricane, flood or the roof to get ripped off in a tornado. Gunsafe Pros carries handgun safes that are tested to stand in water for a considerable amount of time without leaking. Some are capable of keeping contents dry for 72 hours. There are even gun cases that offer the same protection.
Drill-resistant – It’s not a bad idea to look for a safe that features a drill-resistant steel plate to ensure that it can’t be accessed in the event of a burglary.
Locks – One of the biggest decisions you will have to make when shopping for handgun safes is choosing a lock. Some people are more comfortable with one variety over another. Common type of locks you will find include combination, electronic and key with combination. Some that feature an electronic lock will also have an override which will only allow a certain number of attempts to open it. You may also be interested in making sure that your electronic lock offers a low-battery warning and a way to change the battery from the outside.
Bolted – Depending on the size and style of your handgun safe, you may be able to bolt it to the floor. It is important to note that some water-resistant varieties require them to be secured for the warrant to be valid.
Hidden – If you are shopping for handgun safes but also have a lot of valuables that you want to store inside, you may want to consider a wall safe that can be hidden by a piece of furniture or art. The Secure Logic Biometric Wall safe is a recommended pick in this department.
It does not matter how many firearms you have, whether you keep them loaded or not of you have children, handgun safes are necessary to secure your weapons. This keeps you and those around you safe while protecting your investment.
