    The lock mechanism on mine failed and I ended up taking a prybar to it to get my Glock 19 out. I'll be shopping for a new pistol vault this weekend. I'm hoping that Cabela's will take the Homak back.
    Cabela's took the Homak pistol vault back with no problems. I bought the GunVault Mini Deluxe and couldn't be happier. It can even tell you if someone has been tampering with your gun vault. Very nice product.

There are others out there that operate off batteries, but i would not trust my access to a safe that ran off battery power even though there are key backups. Go with simple in a quick access handgun safe. You will sleep better knowing you did.
    Hop that helps.

    Thanks for the suggestions. If I understand the internet site that I found, you both are talking about the same safe, right? That is pretty much exactly what I was looking for.

That's why I will probably buy a GunVault pistol safe this weekend. They have both an electronic keypad and a key.
    Wow. That's great habit to get into. Much better than it failing on you in the middle of the night.

    Any reason that your going with the GunVault over the safe that the others suggested above? I like the looks of the keypad on the GunVault, but I wonder about the thought of it relying on a battery or external power. What's your thoughts?

    Looks like a nice safe. Still has the batteries, though. I'm just worried that I won't be as dilligent about checking my safe as KS Trekker, and I'll let the batteries go down on me. Still a nice safe, though.

    Yeah... I know what you mean. Batteries according to the instructional or website should be good for 1 year if that's of any help. So, just as simple and/or important as checking your smoke detector battery. Lifes to important to not do it. You have kids---- I don't think checking the batteries for something that's important for them (like your detector) will be an issue. If you like it go for it.

    Can't argue with any of that.

    good luck with your search... I was maticulous about my search too. It's almost as important of a decision as the decision to even have the weapon itself; so I certainly understand your concerns. Follow "your" heart.
