View Full Version : Biometric Safes

Hey guys, I've been looking into getting a small safe for some handguns and would like to know your opinion on the biometric safes. I've been trying to do some research on them, but I haven't really found any decent reviews out there. I like the idea of a safe opening to touch rather then trying to find a key at a seconds notice if its an emergency, but I would also like to know if they're reliable or if they have issues reading fingerprints. Any feedback would be appreciated.

I have the small gunvault biometric and had the same concern. I have never had to open it under stress but do regularly test it to insure it opens the first time. it typically does, and its very fast but once in a while it takes a second swipe. I think its important to practice from a position you think you will likely be in, i.e., laying in bed, etc.

I have a true bio metric lock on my rifle safe. Never has failed me yet.
