This instills a lot of confidence in your purchase.



  • This Barska biometric safe is probably one of the best combinations of price and quality safes that are on the market today. At the time of this writing, you can get one for well under $200.


Disadvantages

These really aren't disadvantages - just little things to know.


  • The safe is made out of the steel, with the door bearing most of the steel and security. The sides of the box, while very sturdy, could be broken into with the proper tools. This is one reason why you might want to mount it somewhere. (Besides, mounting it keeps someone from walking off with it)


    Nevertheless, they're incredibly cheap relative to the competition, and you shouldn't have any problems keeping your firearms away from the casual passerby.

    As long as you know what to expect, Homak makes a very fine product. They're inexpensive, they serve the purpose as advertised by the manufacturer, and they're a great starter storage unit. Just be weary of false advertising - Homak gun safes will not stand up to a serious break in attempt. For better protection, you'll just have to spend a little more money.

    Buying a gun safe can be a sizable investment. Like investing in the stock market, it's an investment you don't want to regret. I can't tell you how many gun safe owners have come to me with buyer's remorse, wishing they had done more thorough research before they bought their safe or gun cabinet. And it's not like you can just pick up your safe and return it to the store, either, as I'm sure you can see. After reading this article, you should be better prepared to avoid these same mistakes.

    Top 7 Regrets of Gun Safe Buyers

    1. Forgetting the Dehumidifier. Guns are made of metal. Gun safes are a sealed environment that traps moisture, especially in more humid reasons. Guns inside safes rust. Not good. A dehumidifier will keep your guns looking beautiful. At the very least, put a dessicant in your safe.

    2. Getting Stingy on "White Glove" Delivery. Guns safes are heavy. Very heavy. You don't want to have to move it yourself, especially if it's up the stairs. Either pay extra up front to have the gun safe placed exactly where you want it, or do like I do, give the driver a nice tip up front to get him to do it for you.

    3. Buying a Safe or Cabinet That's Too Small. This is the most common regret of all buyers. Once you have your safe in place, you'll find that it's also an all around safe that can store ALL of your valuable possessions, not just your firearms, so you will end up wanting more space. Trust me, it's the same mistake I made myself.

    4. Not Going Digital. Let's face it, some us are getting old and have a hard time seeing those combination lock numbers. Digital or electronic safes have a keypad with nice large numbers that even light up at night. Well worth the expense if you go in and out of the safe with any frequency. Plus you can change the combination yourself with an electronic lock, while a combination lock requires a locksmith.
