Great safe, and value5 Posted by: from: on I've been pricing safes for months. I wanted quick access and large enough to hold 2-3 pistols. This safe was the best buy (no pun intended) and great value. Very easy to set up, and would highly recommend it.

awesome safe stop looking and just buy it5 Posted by: from: pinole ca on I researched countless vault makers and glad i made a great choice...reguardless of what nay sayers may say. ITS CALLED READ THE DIRECTIONS PEOPLE! LOL Ive read alot of gripes from barska to gun vault to sentry everyone seems to want to pick and complain. Plain and simple i bought this to store my guns it will hold 2-3 easy with room to spare. It opens everytime in about 4 holds 30 fingerprints in memory. It does have a silent feature when you open it. The only this i didnt like was the bolts it came with they seemed pretty flimsy so i went to home depot and bought some thick lag screws and screwed them into my wall studs. Best safe for the money in my humble opinion.

Best safe for your buck5 Posted by: from: SLC Utah on Great safe for a household with hand guns, medications and kids. Quiet function lets me keep my pistol within arms reach of the bed without waking the wife when I get it out to leave in the morning. Set up is easy and fast. Multiple registrations of the same finger reduces false reads when trying to open it. Won't stop a hardened criminal, but it will sure frustrate the #*!! out of them if they can't get it out of the house.

Excellent Safe for keeping your firearms secure5 Posted by: from: MI on Researched this type of safe. Barska has a stellar reputation. Quality of the safe was excellent. Price for the biometric option in this quality of safe was less than I would have expected. I feel very confident that my firearms are secure from unaurthorized access. My only concern was the thiness of the carpet supplied for the floor of the safe. I solved this concern buy cutting a piece of 1/2 inch foam and installing it beneath the carpet.

Great Biometric Safe, but somewhat small4 Posted by: from: Orlando, FL on I reaseached quicte a few biometric safes online. Barska appeared to have the best reviews with the least false positive and false negative fingerprint reading rates. So I went with the Barska here. Free second day shipping. It came very-well packaged. The instructions were very simple and set up was a breeze. 1) Biometric/Fingerprint reading: I set up 3 fingers on my right hand and my thumb on the left (of the 32 slots available). I must have tested it 20+ times before putting it in my closet. ALL of the 4 programmed fingers worked flawlessly, even at slightly different angles. I had read that other biometric safes has issues with this. It only misread a correct finger a couple times out of hundreds of times, and even in those situations I was easily able to reset the reader, re-read, and get the safe to open. From beginning of first false read to second appropriate read with safe opening was about 10 seconds- as opposed to 4 seconds with correct read. NOT ONCE did a non-programmed finger work. Very important since I plan on storing a gun in this safe with kids in the house! 2) Construction: most safes in this range are somewhat flimsy. This had the best reviews, but if anyone where to take the safe with them, they could be in it in no time. The steel is somewhat thin, but it comes with anchoring bolts if you want to mount it, which I would recommend. All in all, this is a great safe that does what it is supposed to do: only let programmed fingerprints in and keep non-programmed fingerprints out. If you want significant protection against theft, fire or water damage, you may want to consider something else.
