1. VAULTEK Smart Station - Biometric Smart Safe with Built-in Wireless Phone Charger

best small gun safes


Highlight: LED backlit HD fingerprint scanner.

Helpful review: "For years I’ve followed Vaultek, as well as the products they’ve brought to market. This smart safe was a bit pricey for me, so I was skeptical about it. But then I finally bit the bullet and purchased it, and can report back that it’s really fantastic and worth the money.
- The safe came well-packaged. Trust me, you’re going to love the packaging.
- The setup is straightforward and clear. Following the instructions for fingerprinting was a breeze. I had no issues setting the combination or fingerprints.
- The quality is excellent. This is a very solid product. It’s really sturdy, very well-built and easy to use.
- The Bluetooth and biometric features are top tier.
- The phone charger works flawlessly. Just place it on top.
- With the extra USB, my watch charger is now also part of the system.
- It will hold most handguns. For instance, it can comfortably hold 2 Glocks. It can also hold my Sig 365 XL with Holosun optics and two 17 R clips with some extra room.
- Clock will set the correct time when the phone is placed on the charger.
- Opens swift for immediate entry.
- Incredibly quiet.
- Interior lighting is beautiful.
- The app has amazing features.
The advertisement does not do justice here. It's much better and advanced than argued. There are so many options featured with the safe: sound or no sound, lights or no lights… I know it sounds funny, but I feel that having such a neat product on my nightstand really upgraded my lifestyle. I love this safe so much, I want to buy another one.
Don’t buy a lesser safe to save a bit of money. This Vaultek really does worth every penny. They offer great customer service and excellent follow-up, so I'll be buying the Vaultek MXi as well based on this experience. Good Job, Vaultek!"  — David P. McGillivray

2. VAULTEK VS10i - Best Fingerprint Scanner

best pistol safes


Highlight: The included rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides power up to 6 months.

Helpful review: "I just purchased the Vaultek biometric pistol gun safe, and I am very impressed. The first thing you’ll notice is the first class product packaging. I can’t throw that box out. This pistol safe is solid and extremely well built. The product’s user manual is clearly written and easy to understand. Neat that you can’t even screw up putting the included lithium battery in.
This Vaultek safe automatically detects battery polarity, so you can install in either direction and it works. The keys work fine. Again, clear instructions made programming the biometric fingerprints easy. And – they do work extremely well.
Likewise, programming the five number keypad was a snap. This pistol safe is really built well, and the included steel cable should be good for traveling. The door is spring loaded and opens more like a quality jewelry box than a jack-in-the-box.
If you want a good safe to SAFELY and securely store your pistol with reliably quick access when needed you will not be disappointed with the Vaultek VT20i.
One more point I’d like to make:. If you are one of the many people who like traveling in an RV, you have probably found that there isn’t really much of a secure place in an RV to store valuables like passports, extra cash, and your wife’s expensive earrings. Depending on where you visit, you may even want to put a pistol in there! With a little ingenuity you can incorporate a steel mounting plate to solidly attach the pistol safe to a solid bed stand or closet wall. If your wife has lots of jewelry, you'd better buy the Vaultek PRO VT. Vaultek has a mounting plate for that one.
- The fingerprint reader is easy to program and very accurate. It only takes one second to open the safe. You get two administrator prints, one 4-8 digit keypad administrator combination, and, of course, two keys.
- There is more than enough room for a sub-compact firearm and three 10-round magazines.
- The Bluetooth app feature is very simplistic and gives you the ability to identify a fingerprint if you have guest users. In my case... my wife. The app also allows you to view if it has detected when it was last opened, how it was opened, and which fingerprint, if applicable.
- You may also turn off the beeping when it is opened; however, the unlatching is just as loud. I don't expect to use the app often.
- The safe itself is very sturdy and solid. It is heavier than I expected. It is not fireproof, nor water/moisture proof. If you keep it in a humid house, plan on using one or two silica gel or other solid desiccant product to reduce humidity.
- The inside bottom surface has a thin layer of foam, and a slightly thicker layer of egg-crate foam. The inner surface of the lid has a thin layer of foam.
- If you will be carrying it around, you may want to buy a layer of foam with removable cubes or similar to "shape" indents for your firearm and magazines. Mine sits stationary... the only reason I have it is because of our grandson.
- It is CA and TSA approved if you need either of those ratings. The exterior bottom surface has four thin anti-skid pads." — Dave Rauschenberg

3. ONNAIS - Great Value for Money

best pistol safes


Highlight: The fingerprint lock can store up to 30 user fingerprints for access by multiple users.

Helpful review: "This safe is made for a bedside or nightstand application. It does come with a security tether, made out of cabling and covered in rubber or flexible plastic. The tether wraps around the bed frame or something and then feeds into itself, like a lariat or a noose. The other end has a steel pawl (the only word I can think to call it) that slips into a groove on the body of the safe when the lid is opened.
The lid is secure with a strong hook and latch mechanism and shuts and secures easily. The locking mechanism is pretty cool, and the combo/biometric lock system is very handy. With the key lock, if you are like me, and an old, worn-out boot, the electronics to get into the safe make me a little suspicious, but hide or secure the key, and you are easier than a padlock.
Setting the electronic code is very simple; opening the battery door takes longer than entering the code. The safe comes with a quick setup guide, is easy to read and understand, and even has pictures. Set the code, hit the OK button, then repeat and it is done. The biometric is just about as easy. Place your fingers; the safe does not care how many or which ones are on the reader six times, and the safe will give the signal, and your super handy biomechanical lock is set. Multiple people can enter fingerprints, so all the adults and none of the kids can use it. If the code access worries you, you can turn off the electronics and use the key, then no one can guess the code; that is up to you.
The interior of the safe is padded, thinly padded, with open-cell foam, so if you live in a humid area like Florida, you will want to save the desiccant packet from your next Amazon shipment and throw it in there to keep the pistol nice and shiny. If this safe is shaken or the gun inside gets some damage, it will have to be seriously shaken or dropped to damage the gun.
The weight of this little safe is excellent; it weighs about two pounds or less and is easy to move around. The weight reduction does come at a price of steel thickness for protection. If a bad guy has time to yank on this safe, they can eventually pull the pawl out of the back, use a small crowbar, and bend the lid out of place to get inside. Dedicated crooks will stop at nothing, except honest work, to get to your valuables; this is more about keeping your hands off a dangerous item when it is not in use.
The little safe has a lot of room, especially with the top-opening lid. It will easily fit the entire EDC package to keep it safe and tidy. The safe is big enough to fit full-sized pistols; my 1911 fits without issues. The 1911 and two spare mags, my wallet, watch, cell phone, and a checkbook- if we still use them- would all tuck away safely. If you want to keep all of this by the door and not by the bedside, this safe will surface mount with two holes in the bottom for screws to the shelf, or the wall may work; the stuff may fall out when opened as a wall-mounted unit.
Now, the fun part. Would I recommend this safe? Yes! Without hesitation, I am ordering more of these and giving them to family members to keep things safe from little hands. I am also fitting one in the drawer at the office to make sure no one sees or needs to know that business, even if it hides a hip flask for PST conference room recovery. Would I buy another one or twenty-two? Yes! I alluded to this already, but the money spent on this safe is worth every penny. Unless you need this to protect things in a fire, then this will not be the answer. Place this safe in the firebox or fireproof filing cabinet, and now your stuff is kept secret and safe from the rest of the crew and the fire if it ever comes." — Gary Anderson

4. AINIRO - Best for Thick Fingers

best small gun safes


Highlight: Anti-corrosion, solid steel construction for increased durability.

Helpful review: "If you need a handgun safe that will keep children out, or in my case a very curious brother in law with Down syndrome, this safe is perfect.
The first one I got was perfect except for the fingerprint reader. It would not remember any finger prints after about 30 minutes. I didn’t want to return it though, because I loved everything else about it. The inside is fully padded, which is a must! It has the ability to have the sound silenced. Also important! It comes with 3 keys, and a really awesome fireproof envelope. Great for documents or passports. So I left a review here, and outlined my experiences.
The company reached out to me immediately, and apologized for the defective fingerprint reader. Super professional, and empathetic to my situation with my brother in law as well. They sent me a new one, and it’s perfect! I guess it really was defective. Because now, I’ve set my index and my thumb, and both work every time. Super happy about that.
Don’t hesitate to buy this safe, it’s honestly the best package that I’ve see on Amazon at an affordable price. And it’s from a company that will take care of you." — Felix Sharp

5. VAULTEK LifePod 2.0 - Best for Cars

best vehicle gun safe


Highlight: Advanced Non-Metal T3™ Polymer.

Helpful review: "There are not many products that actually excite me. As a disclaimer, I have no connection with Vaultek at all....especially enough to go and buy 3 of their products in a matter of days. I spend a lot of time with guns and am very supportive of anything that promote safety and keeps them out of the hands of criminals. This seems like a great option for our lifestyle so I thought that I would share my thoughts.
I conceal carry near constantly. However... there are times that I am obligated to store my gun in my vehicle. Up until now that has been a challenge mostly because most portable gun safes are not designed for true automotive use (in particular, the rigors of off road and open vehicle usage. They F'n rattle and provide virtually zero protection from the elements. The locks are not reliable and if they are....they are tedious at best to open.
Enter the Vaultek Lifepod series travel vault!
- Inexpensive.
- Airtight/Water resistant (Enough to float).
- Programmable to any combination between 4-8 digits.
- Big enough for a Glock 19 (or similar-sized gun) and spare magazine.
- Has a few cool options, like an organizer for cards and cash. It also has a cable loop to secure it almost anywhere. Although.... I think it is dumb that they don't include the cable loop for free. A little tip.... if you order the black one from Amazon, some have been reported to come with a cable. I ordered 2 black safes, one came with it and one did not.
- Multiple colors (Black, Gold(ish), Grey, Orange, Multicam, and a couple special editions).
- It is composed of a tough polymer (feels much like a Glock). It feels very sturdy. I know that it is drop-tested but not sure to what extent. I am sure that if someone spent enough time trying to open it with some effort and tools they could. But it's the most secure of all the other portable gun safes.
- I don't think that it particularly looks like a safe which is nice and cool.
- I have found the lock to be super reliable and easy to operate.
- I hard-mounted one of mine to my Springtail Tailgate Table
MOLLE rack.... it seems like a perfect place to discretely stow the gun before proceeding into the places where I'm restricted. It matches the Punk'n and does not appear out of place in the Jeep.
Note: One of the life pods had to be returned because the program button would not work.... Amazon replaced it promptly and without any hassle." — Lucas Gilchrist

6. RPNB Drop Down - Carbon Knight Series

Top-rated: 373 ratings 

best drop down gun safes


Highlight: Expertly crafted using sturdy steel construction.

Helpful review: "IThe seller is on point. Super fast shipping. Superb packing. Quality and beautiful presentation from RPNB. The RPNB safe is of a very high quality. Crafted product and works superbly. The only flaw was the rubber feet had come loose from the bottom. I figure that was because of the very high temperatures we have been having. I put them back on and they stuck. The drawer opens smoothly and every time. The fingerprints must be registered at different angles if you're not going to use the exact same angle every time. The RPNB company should be commended for this product. This is an initial preview after receiving and testing the unit for 45 minutes after receiving. If something comes up negative I will review again. If you see nothing further all is well.
I have been shopping around for a while to seek a gun safe that could easily hide next to my bed. I want it to be safe but at the same time easy to reach. It has a locker with passcode/fingerprint option, which could automatically open in a second with a ready to pull and shot position. There is an option to manually open it with a key, the key lock seems tough, so others won't reach my gun easily. Plus it's a heavy metal case, which could also prevent others from opening it by force. It also has enough space for one pistol with an extra bullet or magazine. The G-17 fits it well. Maybe the only two cons: It could be over the budget to some people, get it when it's on sale, AND it does not open very quietly, but I guess this is the tradeoff if you wanna it open quickly.
have been looking for a nightstand drop down or slider safe for some time. Most on the market could not accommodate my pistol with a mounted red dot. This one fits the bill. I was also worried about the fingerprint reader not always recognizing my print, but I have been surprised how accurate it read. I did take the advice to have it read my prints at different angles while setting it up. Looks pretty well made. It is heavy, which is good. So my only con is that when it opens, it is a bit loud. So only time will tell how it performs in the long run." — Trent Bailey

7. XDeer - Storage for Several Handguns

Top-rated: 561 ratings 

best small gun safes


Highlight: Advanced semiconductor fingerprint scanner.

Helpful review: "It is sturdy, the company is good, the keypad is great, and the fingerprint reader is flawless. An added benefit is that it plugs in, so that if your battery fails you still have power. The key backup design is nice. You actually have to a flathead screwdriver to get the cover off. An extra cover was included.
So overall, this is a great safe for 1 or 2 pistols. You really could fit 3-4 depending on size, but without extra mags. This is my suggestion: put only 1 or 2 pistols in it! The top shelf is for your easy access home defense pistol with extra mags. This one will have plenty of light to see and you can easily draw since the top shelf has a little more space. The bottom space is for your CCW with extra mags. You'll have the room light on anyway, and you won't be in a hurry usually (with the removeable shelf installed there is no light on the bottom).
If you only want this safe for 1 pistol you can remove the shelf. For one pistol I would say this is perfect. I have a large pistol with weapon lights extended beyond the barrel, 2 extra mags in a pouch standing up in the safe, a knife, and ear protection. I would have room for a small flashlight as well if I wanted to. Using this for one pistol is ideal for me because my draw does not have to be perfect. I have more space without the shelf. There is plenty of light. Again, it is sturdy, great fingerprint reader, and I know customer service would be helpful if you ever had questions." — Sharon Gallagher

8. HOLEWOR - Most Popular Portable Safe

best biometric gun safes


Highlight: LCD Display of time, temperature and humidity.

Helpful review: "I purchased this safe as a gun safe for my sub-compact pistol. I have 2 young children who need to be safe not only from intruders, but also from the dangers of a firearm in the wrong hands (mainly their own).
Build Quality: Consistent with what I read in other reviews, this safe is hefty. It's made of thick metal, and I have no concerns that there is any easy way in (aside from the 3 entry methods: code, fingerprint, or key). This will work perfectly to keep my children out and also anyone quickly rummaging through my house if I were not home from easily accessing my firearm.
Setup: I have yet to look at the instruction manual. Based solely on the reviews I read/watched prior to purchase, I did a full setup of my prints, setting a new code, and silencing the safe in under 5 minutes (easily). Couldn't be easier.
Sound: When I received my safe, the first thing I did after putting batteries into it was hold down "1" for a few seconds to silence the safe. Even when silenced, you can still hear a fairly quiet mechanical release of the locking mechanism when opening with the fingerprint scanner or the code. The key entry just has the "click" that any spring loaded item that is released should be expected to have (due to surfaces of multiple components changing how they are interacting). All the sounds I hear are what should be expected, and give me confidence in the quality, rather than concern or a feeling that it is "too loud," etc. If an intruder were close enough to hear this, they would already know you are there, and sound would not be a concern. These noises only occur when the safe OPENS, meaning you now have access to your means of protection, so things are about to get loud anyway. (It's still very quiet, just addressing the nay-sayers, if any exist)
Key Entry: Key feels solid, slides in super easy due to the rectangular shape with grooves rather than being a jagged edged key. As I said, it is the quietest method of entry (even when the safe is silenced). This being said, I plan to hide the keys pretty well and do not intend to use the key except if I fail to keep up on the batteries. Keeping a key nearby is asking for trouble with kids IMO.
Code: Code was easy to setup. As some have said, if you choose a shorter code (I did 4 digits for now), it will make it clear when an incorrect 4 digit code is entered--so someone will not needlessly try to guess 8 digit passwords. Unless someone has extended access to the safe, I don't see this ever being an issue--and if you are concerned about someone with regular access continually trying to enter, it may be a good idea to have a longer code, or more likely--not keep a firearm in the house.
Fingerprint scanner: I set up all 10 of my prints super fast. I only did one per finger. When placed square-on like when I registered, there is almost never a time when it fails. Registering multiple angles/areas of the fingers I will actually use is something I will probably do in the future (rather than including my pinkies, which is super awkward to even setup, much less use in a real life scenario. I haven't tried tons of unregistered fingerprints. I am curious to know if unregistered fingerprints have a failure rate (opening the safe). If this is a concern you have and you expect people to regularly try to open your safe that shouldn't, you can just not setup any fingerprints and rely on the other methods (or not keep a firearm, if there is cause for concern).
Battery life: I haven't had it long enough to speak to battery life, but the batteries I put in it are not high quality, and I haven't had any issues yet. I plan to monitor battery life and then setup a regular replacement schedule based on how quickly it seems to get low, rather than letting them get close to dying before replacing every time.
Space: This safe easily fit my 2 sub-compact pistols with an extra mag each and a kydex holster. I since sold one of the pistols, but its a large safe, I believe it would be hard to find 2 (modern) pistols of any size that would not fit in this safe together. The foam on bottom and sides protects your firearms from scratches. The foam on the bottom is easily lifted to anchor the safe to another surface. You can also remove it, line the bottom of the safe with cash, place the foam back on top and still have room for your firearm(s). The safe has plenty of height to allow for this.
Customer service has already reached out to me, and seems like they will be phenomenal if any issues do arise. Super pleased with this purchase. 5/5 all day." — Jon

9. Hornady RAPiD Night Guard - RFiD Wristband

best small gun safes


Highlight: Made from 14-gauge steel.

Helpful review: "All the features of the safe itself are really great. I thought it was odd that the instructions say several times not to store a loaded firearm in it. Uh... Really?
It's very easy to program the RFID keys, though it didn't come with a rubber wristband as advertised. It did come with a rubber sleeve that you can put on your own watch band. It also comes with 2 stick-on hard "chips" that remind me of the center part of a poker chip. A little thicker than a credit card, but hard and inflexible. You're supposed to stick them onto the back of your cell phone. This won't work for me because I have a skin on my phone and my phone chargers are wireless. It also has a tear-drop shaped tag for your key ring. So 4 total RFID "keys".
It's really easy to program the time. And the spring is strong, so when you operate the drawer, it pops open enough to grab and go. It's so strong, that the unit moves if there is not enough friction on the surface you have it set on. So naturally, I don't want to be constantly re-adjusting the unit, so I took advantage of the mounting holes on the bottom.
Here is where my problem comes in. I just wanted to run a couple of wood screws down into my nightstand. There's no template provided, so you have to make your own. Time-waster. Then you drill out the pilot holes and hope for the best. There's no room at all inside if you have big meaty hands like I do. It was very hard to screw from inside the unit. I could have drilled and run the bolts from underneath, but then my drawer wouldn't operate. And I'm not trying to secure it from being stolen, that's what the cable that comes with it is for. I just want to anchor it so it doesn't move every time I use it.
The security "leash" cable is nice and will allow you to secure the unit to your bed frame or whatever, but it's not quite long enough. You'd think that since they went to all the trouble of making it look like a clock radio, it could actually be... oh I don't know... A clock radio? An alarm clock? Do I have to do everything myself? LOL.
I placed my order on Sunday and it arrived Monday afternoon!! This product is fairly heavy and very sturdy. It was easy to set up. 9you need 3 AAA batteries.) There are 5 ways to access it and I was able to activate all of them quite quickly. The only way to get into this safe is via one of those accesses. I tried using other items to open the drawer but nothing worked and that was very reassuring to me. The numbers on the clock are very bright red, I hope to try to dim them somehow. As of this moment, I would recommend this seller and this product.
I am very impressed with this safe. I know that there is a different vendor that offers similar protection. But the fact that this offers a clock similar to an alarm clock or even a DVD player or some other type of electronic device. I have had people in the room who did not know that the clock was a safe for my weapons. I was able to put a compact 9mm and 22 compact in the vault with 2 mags each and some assorted papers. I am very impressed with the options that they provide to include for use, a key fob, and combo electronically accessible or a barrel key. Setting the combo was a bit confusing for me but apparently following the directions is not confusing." — Christopher A.

10. RPNB - No-Questions-Asked Warranty

best small gun safes


Highlight: Sturdy 16-GAUGE carbon steel construction.

Helpful review: "I just received my gun safe and set it up. I read many reviews before making the purchase and saw many that mentioned the programming of the fingerprints did not work well. There were many others that said it was fine if you followed the directions.
For me, I had absolutely no trouble programming fingerprints by following the simple instructions in the booklet that came with the safe. I added one fingerprint at a time to test it. I ended up adding 4 prints in total. After the addition of each print I attempted to open the safe with each programmed finger and with fingers that were not programmed. The safe worked just at it should. It always opened with my registered prints and never opened with prints that were not registered. Programming was simple. Use the included screwdriver to open battery compartment, put in the batteries (it did not bother me that the batteries were not included), and press the reset button. It beeps once and the light around the sensor blinks blue. Hold your finger on the sensor until it flashes green, do it twice more and it flashes green twice indicating your print is registered. There is also a button inside the safe you can press to disable or reenable the electronic beeps. You can use the screwdriver to press the button.
I have not yet attempted to erase the prints so I cannot attest to how well that works. Also, I have not used it over time yet to see if the prints will work as well after several days - though I don't know why that would matter.
As for the safe itself, it appears to be solidly constructed and quite secure. I am planning on using it in the home and taking it in vehicle so I can put it under a car seat. It certainly is low-profile enough to go under the car seat. I am using it to hold a Ruger Security 9 Compact and two stock 10-round magazines and there is plenty of room. If anything changes I will update my review but so far it has been just as advertised." — RJ in WA

11. MAXSafes - Unconditional 1-Year Warranty

Top-rated: 316 ratings

best small gun safes


Highlight: 3-Way Access and Portable.

Helpful review: "My dad always had a pistol gun safe/vault with a fingerprint reader, but just like my old fingerprint logon laptop, it’s finicky. Any new scrapes, dirt, etc. or if it’s not *perfectly* aligned, you’re swiping your finger over and over and getting locked out. When it comes to accessing a gun, reliability’s important. I’ve wanted to get some kind of mini safe for a while, but have been waiting for a better keyless entry method. Vein recognition technology intrigued me, and since it has PIN and key access as well, I figured I’d try it out.
It was easy enough to configure with the quick start guide. It opens quickly and reliably, with a hydraulic shock lift. Since the marketing materials claim it works with damaged skin, debris, water, etc. I made sure to try it out. My guns aren’t safe queens, they’re handled rough and put through the paces. Any piece of hardware I get relating to my guns needs to be as durable. Dunked my finger in water, dragged it in dirt, and tried it multiple times each way – worked every time. As long as you put your finger in straight and hold it down against the surface, it seems like it will definitely function in adverse conditions.
Function’s what it’s all about, but the form is also fantastic. Love the rugged yet professional look. Even the box it comes in gives off a high-end feel." — Emilio Shaw

First and foremost, the fingerprint identification and biometric lock features are outstanding.

This feature alone sets it apart from traditional lock-based gun safes, providing me with the confidence that, should I need to react quickly during a home invasion, I can do so efficiently and effectively.

The compact design of the Awesafe Gun Safe allows it to fit discreetly on a nightstand, while the solid construction ensures it remains securely in place.
The importance of this product goes beyond just quick access. The biometric lock is a vital feature for families with children or for those who have guests frequently. It guarantees that only authorized users can access the firearm, providing an extra layer of security and peace of mind. Moreover, the awesafe Gun Safe offers additional features such as a silent mode and a built-in LED light, which are valuable during high-stress situations where discretion and visibility are crucial.
In summary, the Awesafe Gun Safe is an indispensable product for any responsible gun owner who values both security and the ability to respond swiftly during a home invasion. Its advanced features and reliability have made it an invaluable addition to my home security setup, and I highly recommend it to others in search of a reliable bedside gun safe." — Michael Little

13. SentrySafe - Best for Revolvers

Top-rated: 4,084 ratings

best small gun safes


Highlight: Improved gas strut for long-lasting performance.

Helpful review: "I've purchased numerous handgun safes over the ensure the safety of myself and those around me. They've worked and discharged their intended task with varying degrees of success but NONE so as to make me totally satisfied.
I bought this unit due to the overwhelmingly positive reviews, reviews that almost made me think they were too good to be true. But now, after having used it for about a month, I can say unequivocally that this product deserves the highest rating in its class.
The biometric feature works with the first stroke 95% of the time, 100% of the time with the second stroke. Since the second stroke can be made quickly after the first, theirs hardly any delay caused by misplacing your finger the first time. And yes, I did say, "misplacing." If I take care to place my finger correctly relative to the fingerprint reader, it opens every time... and it's easy to do in the dark! But, even if it didn't, the stored sequence I programmed in for the four buttons does work with 100% reliability. And if that's not good enough...say you forget to replace the batteries...the key works 100% of the time.
Beyond it's reliable functioning, the safe appears to be well built, sturdy (HEAVY) and is a good value... at about 1/2 to 1/3 the price of comparable units. It is also sized appropriately to fit easily into most bedside drawers and the top opening lid makes it easy to access your firearm(s): mine holds my Glock 27 w/two extra mags AND my wife's 3" S&W model 66 revolver.
Oh yeah, Amazon shipping and delivery was prompt and the safe arrived with no problems or damage. I'm not usually this gushy but this product deserves all the praise I can give it." — Elijah Graham
