View Full Version : good and reliable "keyless" gun safe?

02-29-2012, 6:52 AM
can anyone recommend a gun safe that would allow you to access your firearm in an emergency in less than 5-10 seconds? i would rather not have to fumble around with keys or a combo lock in the middle of the night...

GunVault makes several models for quick access.
MV500 (http://www.amazon.com/Gunvault-MV500-STD-Microvault-Pistol-Safe/dp/B000TG9RCC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330537754&sr=8-1)
I use this one by my bed. When I turn in I unlock it.

That's a good question! I will be watching this thread for answers. I have a "real safe" but I'm wanting something with a digital lock that I can stash my ammo and maybe a shotgun in (so no bedside boxes). I would hate to think how long it would take me to open my safe when I've just woke up under a stressful situation.

We have a couple Titan gun vaults, and recommend them highly for quick access to a handgun.

Have two gunvault minivault electronics and they get some regular exercise. Haven't had a single issue with either of them yet.

I use a nanovault combo (non electronic) for transporting my handgun to and from work.

My only advice to you if you get one is to spend a few extra bucks and put lithium AA batteries in it. Unless they have changed the design, the batteries are a pain in the butt to change. I have close to 2 years on my bedside one and so far have not needed to replace them with lithiums (gets opened probably 10 times a month).

I have two of the Gunvault Minivaults (one approx 10 yrs old, one approx 3 yrs old) and they both work fine. The batteries are a pain to change, but it doesn't need that very often.
