Before purchasing a gun safe, make sure that you purchase a good quality safe. Often this will mean spending more money than you intend, but saving money in the short term will only cost you security in the long. A safe is an investment; so spend now, don’t pay later. Lets have a look to the greatest Sentry gun safes on the market.
#1 SentrySafe SFW123DSB 1.23 Cubic Feet Combination Fire-Safe
The interior size is not only great for giving you the opportunity to adjust the compartments, but it also features 1.2 cubic feet of overall space. This will make it a great safe for storing multiple handguns and even adding documents.
The exterior is made from solid steel and features a combination lock and dual protection key lock. The great thing about having these two features is that they can be used together to provide even more security to your safe. The dual key lock will offer you the opportunity to keep one key while hiding the other and should you be forced to open the lock, you can easily state that you do not have the other key.
This feature is not only great for people working with cash, but will also work perfectly if you need to give another person access to the safe. The safe can easily be set up to only use one key and thus if you are not home, you will have peace of mind, knowing that your family is still protected.
For years Sentry Safe likes to use a molded plastic interior. This may seem bad for a lot of individuals, but the molded plastic has been proven to be great for resisting fires. Not only will the interior keep all your safe for up to 1 hour in degrees of 1700 Fahrenheit, but it also has the capability of keeping your document and firearms dry while being submerged in up to 8” of water.
The Sentry Safe Company has ensured that the safe is made for withstanding anyone trying to pry it open. The safe is extremely heavy and with a weight and when dead bolted, this weight will increase by almost three times. So you can be sure that no one will attempt to move it.
For the security, they have added for deadbolts. These deadbolts are almost 60% bigger that the deadbolts on your average safes and the door has also been tested with common theft equipment never to break or even show one sign of weakness.
Finally Sentry Safe will give you a lifetime warranty and up to $50 000 worth of insurance, should someone break it open or it may be destroyed in fire. They will also send you a brand new safe for free if your safe should ever break or let you down.
#2 SentrySafe X055 Security Safe
The safe also features a carpeted interior that will be great for keeping your valuables safe. The carpet will also add another layer of resistance to the safe, should it withstand any impact and you could rest assured that even if you happen to be in an accident that all of your valuables will remain safe.
The entire frame of the safe has been constructed with durable and high-quality steel, this will ensure that all your items are not only protected but those common drills and other household equipment will not be able to break through the solid steel. Furthermore, the metal coating will also protect the safe from scratches and add to the already impressive impact resistant interior.
The hinges of the safe have been built from the inside and this will make the safe pry resistant and you can be sure that no one will be able to break open the steel door. The construction is also strong enough that you could display the safe freely, although we never recommend this as it might make you a target.
The safe features an electronic keypad that will make it easy to access your items. Since the door is not that heavy, you will not have to waste time with opening the door and it will simply spring open and allow you direct and easy access to your items in the blink of an eye.
The electronic locking system will activate the live action bolts and this will ensure that all of your items are secure. The safe uses two of the live action bolts and that means that you will have double the protection from someone trying to pry open the safe.
The safe is battery powered and all of the batteries have been included to help save you a few bucks at the start and ensure that you have a safe full of value. You will also receive 2 backup keys that work manually and this will give you the opportunity to override the electronic keypad and ensure that you always have access to the items on the inside of the safe.
The safe also comes with already pre-drilled holes that will make the mounting process much easier and ensure that the safe is locked down and that intruders will not be able to move or steal the safe. For car use, the mounting process will have to be adjusted and a professional might be required.
We highly recommend the safe for any individuals that like to travel or need something small in the office or at home that is close by. The safe will provide fast access to users and this will ensure that no one can catch you off guard and you will have the upper hand over intruders.
