Default Best bedside Gun Safe

not looking to break the bank, but what is the best bedside/under bed quick access safe for pistol. with small kids in the house I am not comfortable with between the mattresses or night stand.

I live the biometric ones, but am concerned on how well they work. I cant imagine these are checking many print points.

any recommendations?

There is a company here in FL that makes incredible gun furniture that you would never know can hold several pistols and/or other valuables. I will have to search for the company, but their stuff is absolutely "Top Notch" quality and remarkably easy to get at "IF" you know the correct things to push and pull and in the correct sequence.

Small kids in the house the last thing you need to do is start shooting an intruder .
No one asked your opinion on protecting their family, I take it your a doctor?

Yep, to a neighborhood that is 100% protected from break-ins, wherever the hell that is.

That's easy. Just take over a prison and kick out all the inmates!

What neighborhood exactly is not subject to break-ins? My sister lived in a really upscale, gated community, with security guards and there still was a break-in double murder a few years ago. A responsible gun owner isn't going to pull the trigger until he/she has identified the target.

Good question, personally my doors are locked tight and I have audible alarms, so if someone is breaking in I will know it.

2nd, my child knows why we have guns and what they are for, and he knows there are bad people in the world intending to harm others.....that is the truth. I wont let my child grow up jaded in make believe world..... so in turn when he wants to see a gun he asks....cause he knows that there is nothing wrong with being a curious child...again I wont shelter him in that manner.

3rd, contrary to popular belief, responsible gun owners don't get out of bed all gung ho ready to kill...if I suspect I am the VICTIM of a robbery first step is call the cops. but I wont wait for them to defend my family.

4th, the fact that I have the means to defend myself and level the playing field makes me that much more comfortable.....I have nothing to fear.

One can always come up with ridiculous "what if" scenarios. Sounds to me like you shouldn't own any guns, cause, you know, your kid might go into the closet and play a practical joke on you and all....

Ain't that the truth

To the OP, there was a recent thread in this forum about gun vault: http://www.thehulltruth.com/dockside...-gunvault.html

Bottomline, avoid gun vault. POS product and you can't get it fixed.

I have a gun vault I'm looking to replace. In the same thread I mentioned above, someone pasted a link to these gun safes. I think this is going to be what I try next:

I think you've been here long enough to already know the answer to that question.

Just make sure you get one with a mechanical lock like this one.

Man my post got off track.

I asked about a bedside vault and found out unknown to me that I must live in a bad neighborhood and in fear.
