    Still have this safe? If so, how's the battery life been wokring out for you? Also, if you press and hold any of the buttons for 10 seconds, does it just pop open? I ask because I heard that this can be a "thing".

      Thanks. That tamper mode check is amazing

        It's good that you didn't get the finger print reader, because it could defeat it with a chewing gum foil wrapper. Check Handgun Safe Research. I'd also be a bit leery of the tubular lock, but I'm leery on almost all handgun safes that have a backup key lock. Anyway, thanks for sharing. I thought this was a very nice review, and I hope it serves you well.

          Installing it under your computer looks like a desktop case. :) No one would guess it's a gun safe. Or a safe period. I would have installed it further in so that the front of the safe is flush with the in case of a robbery the thief should walk past it. Instead of attracting attention.

          You could also get the "hidden gun furniture". Forget the brand name. They have mirrors that have a hidden space behind it...for quick access. Also a clock. And some other kinds of furniture.

              There are only 24 possible combinations. If you just try them all, you should get the safe to open before it locks you out for bad attempts.

                @Kanye East There are literally thousands of combinations and it locks after repeated failed attempts. The probability is that a lucky guess is highly highly unlikely to occur.

                Call me crazy, but I don’t like those odds. Too afraid a curious child would get lucky and access it

                That's with no repeating digits..... There are 256 combinations with 1-4 and allowed repeating digits (i.e. 1111, 1112, etc.). Also, combining key presses (which this safe allows) exponentially increases possible combinations above that.

              Can you mount this to a flat wall directly on the opposite side of where the gun deploys?

                    These lock boxes are designed for planned obsolescence. Figure out how long the warranty is, and ask yourself if you are ok with the price of the unit knowing that it is only guaranteed to work during the warranty period. The motorized unit is embedded, and cannot be repaired or replaced. A quick Google search for “GunVault Reviews” reveals that they fail, and quite frequently. I wish that I had searched for reviews before spending a lot of money on mine. When the motorized unit that opens the vault fails (and it will) you can only open the vault with a key. Customer service will not offer you ANYTHING other than an apology, and instructions to use the Vault with a key from now on.

                      Nice review Steve. Question, could you mount it a little farther in (semi-hidden) and still manipulate the keys? Thanks for any feedback.

                          I dont like that its only a 4 digit set up. If my old math teachers did a good job, i think there's only 24 possible combinations, some oen could easily sit there and run through combinations until they get it right.

                                  So you can just slide the safe off of the bracket and take the safe away??

                                    The screw-down bolts that secure the safe to the bracket attach from the inside. So the safe has to be open in order to be mounted to (or unmounted from) the wall.

                                    I love this safe. I bought the biometric version next to my bed, nearly silent button on that one btw for those disliking the button noise. My Springfield XD fits nice with 16+1 in the chamber and 2 extra clips.

                                      Takes to long .. keep mines on my lap , table , floor, drawer, somebody bust in unexpectedly no time to hit password.. stressful situation you might put in the wrong password or never get the password in time

                                        Why didn't I think of that? ;) To make the video, I kept the default 1234 for demonstration purposes... rather than have anyone who sees this know my actual code. My REAL code is 4321. ;)

                                        Do you remember the length of the 4 wood screws provided to install the bracket? Doing a little preplanning for a place to install. I called Gun Vault and they could not answer.

                                                Steve, I have this one and I love it. Easy to set up. Well it would have been easy but I always over build things. I built a 10GA mounting plate that you cannot get between the safe and the wall to pry it away from the wall. Oh you can get these at Costco, they had it on sale for $99.00 a couple of weeks ago. Thanks for the very good video.

                                                    I have the same thing. It's good for keeping little hands away from something they shouldn't be touching. Keep in mind that anyone with the desire and a medium sized screwdriver can break into it though.

                                                      I have this safe. Its great. Not the purpose of my comment. Major thumbs up for using "snake oil" as a reference to all forms of hocus pocus. I use this term almost daily regarding homeopathy, spiritual healing, aura reading, reiki, astrology, etc... more people need to wake up and smell the snake oil.

                                                        The thing I don't like is how loud the buttons are, we generally need our gun after an ambush and the beeping just telegraphs our location. My Hornady does the same thing.

                                                                    I love this idea in every way except for one thing. I wish that there were an option for the mechanism to work fully mechanically. Something about it being battery operated and electronic just bothers me a little bit. I know that it will warn you if the battery is low and there is even a key if all else fails, but I just think for sheer reliability and ease of use, it would be very useful for it to be fully mechanical. To get an idea of the type of mechanism that I'm talking about, look up the Fort Knox PB1 Original Pistol Safe. If they could somehow implement that into this product I think that it would be 100% solid for what it is.

But just as a tip for anyone out there- I went straight to the actual website to find the product when I first heard about it and they have it priced at like $230 dollars. Little did I know that you can find one on eBay for as low as $77!!!

                                                                    • Awww you u tube mad ain't ya
