I highly recommend this safe to any gun owner. I have a very curious 5 yo boy running around and this safe is a great place for my handgun, he has tried time and time again to get into with no luck. Strong and durable safe that has a strong metal wire attachment so you can safe guard your safe to another object. Has key if battery dies or if you forget your code. Touch pad key code works wonderfully. Haven't had an issue in over 2 years ad would recommend it to any one.
The size was perfect. I could take the foam cut out that came with my gun and it fit snug in the box. I did not want a gun just loose in the box.
The structure is very solid and I like the cable feature. I read about difficulty with finger print recognition, but it was a non issue. I believe people are a little impatient. I was told before hand to record my finger print several times to get all angles. When you slow down a little when sliding it works every time. A little tip, I also recorded my thumb print. That is so I could pick up the box and as my thumb was on it I could slide it and open it. Even with slowing down it is much faster than entering a combination or fumbling for a key. Great purchase.
I have had this for about 6 years, and I access it more than twice a week on average, with no problems ever. I have had to replace the battery twice I think, and it alerts me when it is getting low, so I have never had to use the "emergency key", but the key is always there if needed. I do not have the biometric version. Mine has a code I can program in to suit my preference, and change whenever I want. It does not allow for storing too much, but easily fits a handgun with extra magazines, small valuables, keys, cash, etc.
