Article Posted: December 12, 2014
If you're a gun owner and you don't own a gun safe, you're taking a serious risk. Think of a gun safe as an insurance policy, it not only protects your investment in your guns, but it also protects you against liability you might incur should your firearms fall into the wrong hands. Today's gun safes combine high-technology with good old-fashioned solid steel. Whether you need a small unit for a single handgun, or a larger safe for a collection of long guns, here are some of the best gun safe picks for the new year.
This is a large safe that touts the ability to hold up to 22 rifles and shotguns, if you get creative about putting them in there. But there's plenty of room, with four accessory shelves on the side. Heavy, drill resistant steel construction means this safe weighs in at over 250 pounds. Features a combination lock with five locking points, steel dead bolts and hidden hinges. DOJ and CA Penal Code approved.
Pros: Loots of space, hidden hinges, five locking points
Cons: Heavy 250lbs empty
Large enough to accommodate 36 guns, this safe features superior fire resistance, and is able to protect its contents in heat up to 1,400 degrees for 30 minutes. All-around heavy steel construction, combo lock with three deadbolts and five locking points, carpeted interior and powder-coated finish.

SentrySafe Quick Access QAP1E
When you need your gun in a hurry this is a good place for it to be. A gas compressed strut opens the case in a flash, and does it quietly. With some practice punching in the access code, you can have your weapon in your hand in five seconds. Solid steel construction and a solid lock means it can’t be forced open quickly. Also has key access as a backup if you forget the code.
