When narrowing down you choices, read a few reviews online or on the forums related to such matters. Avoid manufacturer reviews and testimonies as they will be fairly one sided and to their advantage. Go into local or national gun forums and ask for advice. In asking for this advice you may come across unforeseen problems and issues as well.
As you continue on your journey to gain more information, take a look at some merchant websites with user reviews. Users that give reviews are more often than not candid and a bit harsh in their statements, particularly if the product has a chance of being defective in their eyes. In these reviews you may also come across some problems that the users themselves have come across and solved on their own.
Quite commonly the electronics system on an electronic safe will be the one where malfunctions will likely occur. Some biometric systems are, sad to say, lack in quality and may not stand the test of time. In the event it does conk out, the only way to get your safe open will be with a crowbar. Opening a safe with a crowbar is probably one of the least elegant things you can do.
The battery system of an electronic safe should be simple enough that you can replace batteries with ease. In fact so simple that a simple child would be able to do it without having to read instructions. In the case wherein there is no low level battery indicator, you will have to be extra diligent in knowing when to keep batteries fresh so that you do always go to the basement for your crowbar in the event of a no power problem.
Sometimes we may not trust our own judgment, and in this case e may need to reinforce what our choice will be for our final purchase. Looking for safes that are either endorsed by local enforcement agencies and even local gun clubs should give you additional peace of mind and comfort. Knowing that professionals have given their seal of approval for a particular unit or model will make your search criteria that much narrower and your purchase decision that much faster.
Try to determine the reliability of certain safes that have figure in crime such as thefts and burglaries. You can probably catch this by watching local video crime footage and others. If the safe was easily opened and such, then it may not be the one for your needs.
The last thing that should help you say yey or nay will be the price. Get a safe that will not bankrupt you or one that will take up most of your hard earned savings. Get a decent workable one that is supposed to do its job and nothing else.
