How to Choose a Handgun Safe

Choosing the Best Handgun SafeChoosing a Handgun Safe

Being able to physically secure your weapon can prevent both unwanted access and protect your investment.

Safes for handguns have been around for nearly as long as firearms have. The dual purpose they serve makes them more valuable than most people realize. If you’ve never been robbed, a safe is one of those things that seem like a good idea, but ehh, you really don’t need it right?

Owning a weapon is not only a right but a responsibility. Weapons are dangerous. That’s a very simple fact, and protecting your loved one, especially children, from a tragedy isn’t a choice you should have to wrangle with very much.

Besides the fact that guns are expensive, if they are stolen by criminals the possibility of them being used in crime is increased tenfold.

Guns used in crime are often the reasons used by control advocates as reasons to tighten the noose on our freedom to keep and bear firearms. So keeping them locked up is just plain common sense.

A safe for handguns (or long guns for that matter) is also an investment and should be made with a little knowledge beforehand. Most of these are simple considerations to make sure your safe is a long term investment.

Having a gun safe is a major step is storing weapons safely. Now, when you picture a gun safe, you may be thinking of a large, heavy and nearly unbreakable safe. This is fine for those with a large collection that includes rifles and shotguns.

But for those who own handguns, especially just one handgun for self-defense, a large safe is expensive and unnecessary. Small traditional handgun safes are good for keeping the kids out, but a there isn’t much to prevent a small safe from simply being snatched all together. For storing a single gun, one must also use concealment and keep the safe covert.

When it comes to storing a weapon in a living room or den, you do not have many options. A gun cabinet or rack is an option for long guns, but this is not so for handguns. Even for long guns, there really isn’t a discrete way to store the weapons.

Handgunsafes – The Lowdown

Large or small, a safe is a nice thing to have. A safe provides a central location for whatever you are storing, and serves as a deterrent against theft or unauthorized access to those items. Some even protect against fire and water damage.

I say deterrent because no safe is 100% inaccessible. Given enough time, a well-trained thief or thieves will be able to get into any safe.

 

Disclaimer #1 “ 100% Security?: There may be a few safes out there that are, or claim to be, 100% secure from break-in.

We are talking about safes owned by extremely wealthy people and/or the U.S. Government or Treasury. These guys probably do have safes that are very close to 100% secure—I will take their word for it.

But in general, no safe is 100% un-bustable. At least none that cost less than multiple thousands of dollars.
