Control the moisture-Best Gun safe dehumidifiers

A gun safe dehumidifier should be used by every serious gun collector.  Gun safe dehumidifiers are used to absorb any moisture within your gun safe that could lead to rust and mildew build up, and eventually corrosion and damage to your firearms. Therefore, these products are needed to protect your investment. There are a number of different dehumidifiers on the market today and knowing the difference of each will save you time and money in the long run.

Desiccant Packs

51K-3ZxllNL._SL160_Desiccant Packs are similar to those like white gel packets you find in your new box of shoes.  Unlike the other gun safe dehumidifiers, desiccant packs do not require batteries or electricity. They usually come in a pack of 4-10, and have a totally different way of ‘recharging’ themselves. The moisture in in these packs have to released by heating them in the oven. This is called recharging. Though effective, it can be a hassle to cook your packs every so often. And with the affordability of the newer, easier to use dehumidifiers, we only recommend these if you have no other options.

Gun Safe Dehumidifier Rods

31fsAIPHOKL._SL160_

Gun safe dehumidifier rods will dehumidify your gun safe in a totally different way than the desiccant packs listed above.  These rods actually work by increasing the air temperature inside your safe gradually, and maintaining it constantly. The biggest downside about these rods is that they need to be plugged in. So for those who do not have a pre-drilled hole provided by their safe manufacturer, you may want to look at other options. For those who do decide to get a dehumidifier rod, you will not be disappointed. These things are highly effective, and easy to install.

Rechargeable Dehumidifiers

51Xnbohqk2L._SL160_

The newest type of gun safe dehumidifiers on the market today, rechargeable dehumidifiers are small, affordable and very convenient.  They work the same as the desiccant products reviewed above, but do not need to be ‘refreshed’ by an oven. Instead, they are able to get rid of its moisture while plugged into an electrical outlet. So not only will you be ‘recharging’ the internal battery, you will also be refreshing your your unit at the same time. There is also a gauge located in the front of the unit to indicate when you need to do so. The best thing about this product is cordless which makes it perfect for gun safes.

Eliminate the dark-Lights for gun safe

Gun safe lighting is usually the first addition gun safe owners buy for their safes. Gun safe lighting is important because of how deep and dark those large gun safes can be.  If you are an organized person or are just tired of carrying over your desk lamp whenever you need to access your safe, you should definitely look into buying some lights for your gun safe. They are bright, small, and very affordable.

There are a few gun safe lighting options today that buyers should look into before making a purchase. Gun safe lights come in light kits, cordless, and LED options. We hope to help you find some lights that will fit perfectly in your personal gun safe.

Stack-On SPAL-300 Motion Sensitive LED Gun Safe Lighting

31NmkUJcrXL._SL160_

We love these Stack-On SPAL-300 LED Lights because they just offer so many features that other lights do not. First of all, as the names states, these things are motion sensitive, which means they will turn on the instant you open your safe. It contains 3 lights (each with 4 LEDS), that are all able to pivot in whatever direction you want, and have 2 brightness settings.

You can mount this bad boy in two ways, via mounting plate or hook and eye tape which is included. As with all safes, we encourage everyone to stay away from using the tape though, as they tend to fall off after a few weeks, even days. Finally, no wires here, the SPAL-300 is totally battery operated.

Lockdown Cordless 6 LED Vault Light

31IbJgALUfL._SL160_

Contending with the Stack-On LED Light above is this Cordless LED Vault Light by Lockdown. It comes in at a close second compared to its contender for a few reasons.  First off, it does not have motion sensor capabilities, which to us, is one of the coolest things a vault light can do. Also, another issue we had was that the battery life on these lights seemed to be less than the SPAL-300′s. We do love how this lighting fixture comes with magnets, which we believe all gun safe lighting should have, but it wasn’t enough for us to call it the best on our list.

Battery Operated LED Lights

41U-gm97wwL._SL110_41BP0wJW7-L._SL110_For those of us who want other, more flexible gun safe lighting options, you should look into other battery-operated LED lights. With the rising popularity of LED lights, it isn’t hard to find one to suit your budget and style. In fact, there are so many, we can’t possibly review them all. We suggest you do your own homework and read a few reviews to find the ones that will fit your safe the best.

Stack-On Electrical Cord Accessory Kit

31AmOGs8m8L._SL160_41h8DNFySqL._SL160_If you’re the creative type, you may want to look into buying the Stack-On Electrical Cord Accessory Kit. By far the most flexible option when it comes to lighting and additions to your gun safe. Basically, what this kit does is provide 2 standard electrical outlets inside your safe without compromising your fire or waterproof ratings. This means you will be able to power up your gun safe lighting, dehumidifier, or any other accessory you decide to put inside your safe.

stknmbQuick Overview

This is the sister-safe of the Stack-On FS-24-MG-C gun safe; the only difference between the two lies in the door opening mechanism, which in this safe is an electronic keypad rather than a combination lock. The FS-24-MB-E is fire-rated, and will protect your guns from even the most experienced burglars – you’re simply not getting in nor moving the safe without torches and power tools plus lots of time. You can forget about opening the door with even the heaviest and thickest pry bar, as the door shuts so tightly that there isn’t even room to insert the tip of the pry bar (and even if they did, it wouldn’t do them any good). The same goes for drilling; the lock is reinforced with a hardened-steel plate, so the thieves are more likely to break the drill bit than to drill a hole through the lock. This unit is like a personal mini-armory.

Lock Quality & Programming

The factory default access code is: 2, 5, 8

The door on the FS-24-MB-E is sealed shut with 3 live bolts, and two extra dead bolts located on stknmothe hinge- side of the door. These bolts, which are 1″ in diameter, coupled with the door’s pry-resistance, make it very difficult  for even a well-prepared burglar to open the door and gain access to your weapons without the right access code. Everything has it’s limits obviously, and you can’t compare this safe to other units that cost $2,000 or more. For what this safe costs, however, it really doesn’t get better than this in terms of security.

The lock itself is very easy to program. You will first need to insert a new 9v battery – just unscrew the keypad from the door (by twisting it counterclockwise) and the battery tray will be revealed underneath it. (When the battery is low, a red warning light located on the keypad will begin to flash.) Once you have the door opened using either the default code or the emergency key, you’ll want to reach over with your hand to where the door hinges are located, where you’ll find the reset button. Press and hold it for a second or two until you hear a beep.

If you’ve done things correctly, a yellow light bulb will light-up on the keypad, indicating the unit is ready to accept your new personal access code – this can be anywhere from 3 to 6 digits. Input the new code and finish off by pressing the star (*) button on the keypad to confirm. You will hear two short beeps, and your lock has now been successfully programmed. You can now open the safe by inputting your personal code and confirming entry with the hash sign (#). Don’t forget to turn the handle to retract the bolts after inputting your code, otherwise the door won’t open.

Design Quality & Capacity

I personally enjoy the aesthetics of this safe more than that of the combination-lock version of it. It’s shiny black, and the interior is carpeted with a nice rug-resembling material, which helps keep your guns and valuables scratch-free, and adds to the elegancy of the design. The door and walls are made of 10-gauge steel and are filled with fire retardant, making the safe capable of keeping its contents secure in the case of a home fire for as long as 30 minutes at temperatures as high as 1400 degrees. I haven’t had to go through a home fire yet (thankfully), so I can’t attest to the validity of these claims, however it does have a fire rating issued by ETL (currently ITS), so that’s good enough for me.

The unit comes with 4 shelves that you can install any way you want, so you can play around with positioning until you find one ideal for the guns and items you need to store. I personally have only 10 long guns inside and a bunch of revolvers, with lots of ammo on the shelves. Up to you to choose how you want to arrange things. If you don’t install any shelves, the Stack-On FS-24-MB-E will fit 24 long guns; if all four shelves are installed, it will fit 12 long guns plus everything you can fit onto the shelves, be it ammo, handguns, documents, etc. The capacity of this safe is something that many other gun owners consistently praise.

The shelves are sturdy, however be careful not to drop anything heavy onto them; they are not made of steel and if abused, they will crack or break. This might seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people expect miracles from these shelves without taking the time to care for them properly.

As for the barrel holder, it does its job as well. Your guns won’t fall over, and your scoped rifles will be kept far enough from the walls to avoid any damage to the scope itself. With that said, guns with exceptionally short barrels might not be able to “reach” the barrel holder, in which case you will have to put something under them (for example a carton of ammo) to elevate the barrel so it can reach the holders. This holds true for pretty much all gun safes in this price range so it’s nothing to worry about at all.

Installation

As always, you will want to bolt the safe firmly to the floor, for two reasons:

  1. This significantly increases the safety of your guns as a team of burglars can’t just carry it away, plus it’s much harder to “work” on getting a safe’s door open if it is standing in an upright position.
  2. If you don’t bolt the safe to the floor, the construction could tip over and fall onto you when you open the heavy door, especially if the safe is empty (or if a lot of the weight inside is located closer to the top of the safe).

You’ll need your own drill and wrench to bolt down the safe; all the remaining hardware plus instructions will be provided with your safe.

Stack-On FS-24-MB-E Review – Summary

This is a sturdy, quite heavy, pry-resistant safe that will hold a reasonable gun collection without trouble. The keypad-accessed lock is dependable and is better than what you would expect to get for this kind of cash. There could have been a lower setting for the barrel holders, but this is such a minor con that it’s not worth fretting over. The FS-24-MB-E will keep your guns and family safe, and will provide you with peace of mind every time you are away from your valuable collection.

Sentry Safe HDC11E Home Defense Center review

snthd

The creators at Sentry Safe have revamped their line of gun safes with the very new and innovative Home Defense Center.  Steering away from the traditional heavy boxed-typed gun safes, the HDC is a breath of fresh air with a number of small yet, very modern design features.Just looking at the HDC11E screams innovation.

With its tall and sleek design, this safe is made to fit perfectly in any corner of your room or tucked away in a closet without being obtrusive.  Just like it’s name implies, the HDC was made with home defense in mind, allowing the storage of one handgun and one long gun (rifle or a shotgun).

It sports an quick-entry electronic lock that features whisper-quiet entry. It is programmable like most digital safes these days, but also includes back up keys as well. On top of the safe is a defense tray for important items such as keys, tools, and extra clips. And at the bottom, is a secret floor compartment. Its nice design and various posative reviews catch my sight when I see it at my first sight. Let me introduce the model to you.

The enough internal storage space

You know, the enough storage room is the most important reason why I review it. The dimesion is the 8.8 inches by 8.8 inches by 46.9 inches, which is more longer than most models. It is the best suitable for the user who own the long hunting gun.You can easily put several gun in it. There is an extra little room in the internal space, which is used to store the other firework including the pistol and hand gun. The larger space means the more weight. Its weight is the 108.4 pound. Because the steady bottom can average spread the weight. It is designed for home safe . You had better choose the other model if you wanna the model with portable feature.

The security feature

You must take into consideration about security. With the pry- assistant door, it surely add the more security to the users. It is impossible to pry out the door by the hand tool. The electric lock allow you to set your combination, you are the only one that know the user code. With the override keys, you can easily open the safe with key if you forget the key. By the way, there are some skill to set the user code. For example, the code should be related with some special day for you. Such as your birthday, memorial day.

Other features

The specially is famous for resisting shotgun. It is called as innovative barrel containment system. 1 inch comer bolts is designed for more security. You can bolt it on the floor. The product can be shipped in the US and APO/FPO address. Free shipping is available. The door can’t be removed when you move it. And it is not fire- resistant feature. The digital lock is surely an add feature for the bigger safe. You know, most similar model should be open by the key. The feature help you decrease the time of opening the door.

Customers’ reviews and Conclusion

There are about 40 customers’ reviews. And over half of them give it 5 star , the full of star. And it get 4.4 of 5 stars finally, an outstanding marketer. Like every products, it has some drawback, some customer think that manual isn’t so clear to see. In my opinion, there are some instructional video in the internet. It can surely replace the manual. It is enough to help you learn to use the product. If you still have the problem after watching, feel free to contact with me. Overall ,it it the nich choice, if you wanna the gun safe to store the long gun and easily access the firearm when facing the emergency.

Stack-On SS-22-MG-C review

WELL WORTH THE $

Avid hunters and outdoor enthusiasts are always on the lookout for products they can use at home and on the go. With the quality products sold by Stack-On, anyone who loves using and collecting guns will find something that keeps their guns protected. This Stack-On SS-22-MG-C review probably covers one of the finest safes that the company makes. If you are on the fence about buying a Stack-On gun safe, this model is perhaps one of the best in value for money.

stkop

JUST THE SPACE YOU NEED

This gun safe is more than 50 inches tall, which probably offers more than enough space for your guns. The inside of the safe measures around 11 cubic feet, and you can place some of your taller guns inside without worrying about scraping the top of the cabinet or damaging your favorite pieces. It also comes with adjustable shelves inside, so when you need more space, you can re-position the shelves to give your cabinet a little more room. Those shelves also fit around your taller guns, holding the barrels in place to prevent any slipping.

The only complaint you might have is about the capacity of the cabinet. According to Stack-On, this cabinet can hold 22 rifles, and while it has enough space for that many rifles, most users seldom place more than 15 inside, unless they are shotguns with no charging handles. You probably don’t like the gun barrels rubbing against each other, but if you filled the cabinet to maximum capacity, you might have slight issues keeping the barrels apart. Using rifle rods could solve this minor issue.

An unbiased Stack On gun safe review should include potential problems if there are any, but that is the only issue that most users have with this safe. The locking mechanism is nearly impossible to break. The lock opens smoothly and offers great security with a 3-number combination lock with a drill resistant, hardened steel plate behind the lock.

THIS IS ONE SOLID SAFE

When you start shopping for a new gun safe, you likely want something that wouldn’t fall or tip over. With the kids chasing your pets and the pets chasing each other, you never know what might happen if they accidentally run into the side. Restoring guns is expensive, but with this safe you won’t worry about restoring guns because of damage caused by the cabinet tipping over. If you’re tired of poor quality cabinets that feel flimsy or lightweight, this is a great choice. It features a bolt-on design, and after securing it to the wall or floor in your home you’ll feel confident knowing it will never move.

stkclThe instructions that come with the safe are easy and simple to use. Those instructions come with a number of different pictures that explain the assembling, attaching the safe to a wall and adjustments of the shelves. Most shoppers find that it takes about 45 minutes or less to remove the packaging, assemble the safe and attach it to the wall/floor.

Some users might have a few problems figuring out the shelves though, even with the clear instructions. Stack-On doesn’t mark which side of the shelf is the top and which side is the bottom, but this should only add a minute or two to your installation time. You even have the option of removing the shelves completely. While this gives you a little more space, you’ll still deal with the barrels rubbing against each other.

BOTTOM LINE

The Stack-On SS-22-MG-C gun safe is a popular choice for obvious reasons. Its benefits kiss those of the elite safes for a reasonable price, and offer most gun owners all the security they will ever need, and more.

BARSKA Quick Access Biometric Rifle Safe review

BARSKA-Quick-Access-Biometric-Rifle-Safe-75x300For the right customer with the right needs and the right price range, the BARSKA Quick Access Biometric Rifle Safe fits the bill nicely. This CA DOJ-approved safe gets its job done with minimum fuss and utmost dependability; however, shoppers must be careful, as this safe is for gun owners with very particular needs, and it will not satisfy everyone.

A gun safe defends against several things – mostly fires, water damage, burglaries, and wandering fingers that know no better. Most of your higher-priced gun safes strive to cover all bases, implementing intense amounts of steel and pins and bolts for ultimate protection. Frankly, however, not everyone needs so much. For some people, a safe as sure as Fort Know is overkill for their particular needs.

A quick BARSKA Quick Access Biometric Rifle Safe review shows that it is an intelligent choice for those who don’t need so much precaution, or who don’t care to have that much. It is a more basic safe. You might even call it a locker, instead. It is constructed out of relatively flimsy steel, steel that a determined enough burglar could get through. Also, steel of this type and strength does not protect from fires or water damage, and your firearms will be at risk.

This safe is, ultimately, one for the person whose top and perhaps only priority is safety, one who does not mind so much if a rifle is damaged or destroyed, so long as it stays out of the hands of children, or people who cannot be trusted with a firearm. Protect up to four rifles, plus a shelf for a pistol, ammunition, and gear.

However, the safe only supports very basic rifles and shotguns, meaning that if your firearm has a pistol grip, a scope, or any other form of modification, then chances are it will not fit.

The BARSKA Quick Access Biometric Rifle Safe employs a digital biometric fingerprint scanner, which can store up to 120 individual fingerprints that can gain access. Otherwise, no one is sneaking their way inside. Upon opening, a very audible beep cracks the air – a safety measure, but annoying to some, so the safe allows the owner to disable any sounds.

One of the major concerns that centers around digital locking systems is the reliability of the battery. Many customers tell stories of getting locked out of their own safes, simply because the battery died. BARSKA has two solutions to the problem. For one, it can employ backup battery power. When your primary battery runs out, the backup battery kicks in, and an LED light on the front panel notifies you that it is time to change the battery. Second, the safe comes with two keys that can open the safe anytime. This means that even if the safe’s biometric scanner defected, the safe would still function adequately as a safety tool.

The safe provides solidity, too. Anchor holes lining the back allow you to drill this safe to the wall, which is highly recommended for this particular product. At only 66 pounds, even an anorexic burglar in a tremendous hurry could make off with it with no trouble at all.Hopefully, this BARSKA Quick Access Biometric Rifle Safe review shows that it is a quality safe for the right kind of gun owner. Many gun owners prize their weapons to the point of love – they want nothing more than the best you can get in a safe. They want their firearms safe from anything at all times – fire, burglary, water, accidents.

The BARSKA quick access is more for the semi-interested owner, maybe one who enjoys occasional hunting trips and little more. This person’s main concern is family safety, and keeping their weapons out of irresponsible hands. For such a shopper, this safe does more than enough. Once secured in one spot with bolts, the fingerprint scanner makes it impossible for the neighborhood boys to get inside.

The BARSKA Quick Access Biometric Rifle Safe was made for the casual owner, one who does not mind so much if the firearms were ever damaged by accident, but one who wants to be rock-solid sure that they are kept in a safe spot at all times.

Best safes for carrying small guns in your car

If you have a handgun, you should know the enormous responsibility that its ownership bestows upon you when you have to carry it around with you in or out of your car.In some states, this may enable you to defend yourself while you are away from your home.The law usually requires you to have a conceal carry permit for it. Anyone who is more than 18 years old and is not a threat to the people around them can carry a handgun in some states.

Reason to have a car safe

1.For interstate transportation.It’s reckless, in most states possibly prohibited, to put your gun in the glove compartment or simply conceal it under a paper or towel on your seat.Most of the time they require the firearm to be kept unloaded in the trunk of a car or in a locked container which makes it not directly accessible.If you wish to carry it otherwise know about the concealed carry law in that state.

2.Concealed carrying guns.Though you can conceal a weapon in a glove box or hostlers but it is better and secure to keep it locked in a quick and easy access gun safe.

3.Carrying a gun weather concealed or not is not allowed in various government and educational institution.So when away from your car It is advisable to keep it locked and hidden in the car to prevent them from smash and rob situations.

4.To protect them from unauthorized hands like children and others who might also be traveling or driving your automobile.

Security features

Body make

Security of a small safe can be judged based on how easily the safe can be pry open specially its door and not the body. You know like kids who will try to open it without any trail marks or a casual thief who is trying to open it silently. However one cannot be assured of security against a theft or robbery with even slightly bigger tools when you are not present for considerable time at home or even away from your car.In that case no small safe can offer you ultimate security. A hard blow with a hammer or cutter can open a small safe anyway. In case you leave it in your car you should only consider a smash,grab and run situation where thief do not have enough time to pry open with paper clip or run countless combination.He also cannot make much noise to actually cut open the safe.In that case you mostly cannot avoid the unwanted.

Locks

Small gun safes locks are not the same as in bigger safe.They are of far lower quality and so most of them can be picked.Pin tumbler locks as in gunvault nano can be picked with clips Bump keys etc,auto jiggles etc.Biometric like the gun vault MVB 1000 shown below have tubular backup lock(as is mostly the case) can be picked with tubular pick.Other than this there is also possibility of opening the lock if one can reach to the locks internal hinge with a wire or rod etc through a hole on the safe body. That’s why a good safe don’t have holes or if there is the locking mechanism is unreachable in closed condition.

PS Electronics locks on bolt type front opening door safe like barska etc are easy to open by just bumping the safe few times and information about it is all over the youtube.

So we consider safe with mechanical locks as the best handgun safe for ultimate reliability, but in case you think that these picking attack are not always a threat or you don’t leave your vehicle in unsafe area for long you can also consider other lock type as mentioned below.

Titan combination Safe

Fort Knox FTK-PB review

This safe is designed as strongest in the range.It is possibly the strongest safe for small guns.Also fast and quick to open.Since being heavy it is not meant for carrying and will best serve its purpose if mounted somewhere inside car or at home.The lid is made of heavy steal and opens with gas assisted lid openers.

Another safe made by fortknox is FTK Auto is slimmer and deeper to be put under the bed or seat of the car etc.Product quality and functions are same.Fort knox uses simplex lock and it works perfectly whenever you use it even after 10 years.Also most difficult to pry open.With pry bar or hammer it will take considerable amount of time and perhaps much more noise for intruder to be caught.
