Choosing Gun Safes (Buying tips)

Locking system: Look for a gun safe with a locking system that connects the outside device to the inside locking mechanism. With this type of locking system, drilling the safe to open it without entering the appropriate keys or codes can either completely destroy it or render it inoperable.

Sound alarm:
Choose a gun safe with a sound alarm that goes off whenever it is opened without using the appropriate keys or codes.

Fire resistance:
For fire resistance, choose a gun safe made of thick, insulated materials. However, because of its bulky construction, it usually has a limited amount of usable storage space.
