If you want to go with keypad instead of fingerprint scanner, it's a bit cheaper @ $136.14

I have the keypad version. Very good safe to keep the kids out of it. I doubt it would keep a burglar out for very long, but it works well. Good purchase. I've heard the biometric version can have problems, but the keypad version has never failed to open for me.

It's already back up to $203.58 with free shipping. Man, that was quick!

In for two of the keypad version. Great price for this! I like my pistol readily available in the nightstand drawer at night. My wife hates that because its not really secure. I've been looking at these for awhile to help keep my two year old safe. One will be mounted inside each nightstand. I'm glad I finally "pulled the trigger".

I've heard some mixed reviews about the biometric stuff as well. It can be flaky at times. The keypads are supposedly much better.

Just bought one of the like new units on Amazon for $187. Same return policy and likely just one of the folks who had a review stating that their fingerprint would not recognize. I have seen these in action and they are very good. Especially if kids are in the house. They can't fake a fingerprint but they could break a 4-digit code. I know the likelihood of "breaking" the code is low but why not just rule it out completely? Also, given the situation that this unit comes in to play for more than just safe storage, the last thing you will be thinking about is your access code. You won't forget your fingerprint! ;)

I recently heard a solution to the problem of it not recognizing your fingerprint: register your fingerprint multiple times. That way at least one of the stored versions of your fingerprint will work, hopefully.

DISCLAIMER: I have not tried this suggestion so ymmv.

In for one. Now if only I could find some ammo....

Have fun with an electrical safe when the wires fail. I wouldn't trust guns to an electrical safe. Always go mechanical.

@rabidmonkeyoncrack: Both models come with a key that you can use to open it every time, in case of an electrical failure, or just to change the battery.

Beware. Anything by Gunvault is terribly insecure. It will NOT protect your weapon against anything other then children, and I honestly wouldn't bet on that, either. Bypassing the locks on Gunvault models is terribly easy.

Went back down in price again so the 196.59 is good again.

This is awesome! I've just bought a couple of guns, but don't have a safe for them. I've been trying to find one for a decent price, and this gave me some great insight! So far this and http://www.safeworld.ca/en/amsec_bf_series_gun_safes.html have been the most the helpful. Thanks for sharing!
