Types of Gun Safes
Whether you own a single firearm or a broad assortment of guns, purchasing a safe and gun safe accessories are useful investments that can provide safety and security.
Long Gun Safes – Also known as a rifle safe, this type of safe often resembles a cabinet and can protect the firearms from fire and unauthorized use depending on the selected features. Browning Gun Safes normally offer a variety of different features in their line of safes for Long Guns.
Handgun and Personal Safes – Whether you are need to protect handguns from unauthorized use, or keep your valuables safe, secure your valuables in a dependable and sturdy personal safe and hand gun safe. Choose from top brands like Sentry Group, Stack-On Safes and more.
Think about the type and number of firearms you need to protect, as well as the type of threat you're trying to eliminate to determine the best gun safe for your needs. Once you've assessed your needs, the following factors and features should be considered:
Fire Rating – Some safes employ fireboard, drywall, or other insulation materials making these gun safes fire-resistant. Browning Gun Safes typically feature this construction.
Metal Thickness – Any gun safe that you consider should have a solid steel door and wall of substantial thickness. Generally the thicker the steel the better as well as a pry-resistant door, however this will also increase the price and weight.
Entry Convenience – Electronic, biometrically controlled, live locking and combination locks are among the several gun safe locking options.
When purchasing a gun safe, you should choose a safe larger than you currently need. Most people increase the size of their gun collection over time, so consider gun safes that holds more than your current collection.
Over time, mechanical locks on safes can be more reliable. For those looking for a sporting rifle safe, a mechanical lock may be a better option.
If you'd prefer something less secure, a gun cabinet can provide a good storage alternative.
