Why Should I Buy a Handgun Safe? FAQ’s & All the Basics You Need to Know


Designed to offer increased security to gun owners, handgun safes are an essential element of gun safety. Whether you own one handgun or numerous pistols and revolvers, a handgun safe will ensure you can keep them in a secure location when they’re not in use. 


What is a handgun safe?

A handgun safe is specially designed to store short-barreled guns safely. Predominantly used for the safe storage of revolvers and pistols, handgun safes vary in size. In some cases, a handgun safe can be a portable unit that enables you to take your handgun from one location to another safely.


Alternatively, handgun safes can also be permanently installed on to your premises. With the option to have a handgun safe hidden in the wall, bolted on to the floor or freestanding, there are a variety of choices when it comes to gun safety.


Why should someone buy a handgun safe?

A handgun safe is a vital piece of equipment for anyone who owns a short-barreled weapon. If anyone gains unauthorized access to your weapons, the consequences could be devastating. Due to this, it’s essential you have a robust and secure handgun safe in which to store your equipment. 


In addition to this, a handgun safe will give you peace of mind when storing weapons. Knowing your guns are secure in a high-quality handgun safe will reassure you that they cannot be accessed by children, family members or burglars. With the dangers of improper gun care well documented, the importance of having a high-quality handgun safe simply can’t be underestimated.


What to consider when buying a handgun safe?

There are multiple types of handgun safe available, so you’ll need to consider various factors when deciding which one is right for you. The size of your handgun safe will depend on the number of weapons you plan to store. However, some handgun safes offer additional space for other types of valuables too. 


Furthermore, you may want to opt for a safe which offers enhanced protection from fire. While some handgun safes offer up to 30 minutes of fire protection, others provide up to 2.5 hours of protection. By talking to a specialist at Knowell’s Lock & Safe, you can find the perfect handgun safe to suit your needs.


What do handgun safes cost?

Handgun safes can vary in price but it’s always worth investing in a high-quality safe when you’re storing any kind of weaponry. As well as being expensive pieces of equipment, guns can be extremely dangerous if they fall into the wrong hands. 


What’s the difference between a cheap handgun safe and a more expensive one?


A cheap handgun safe might seem like a bargain but they won’t necessarily offer a good level of protection. In fact, many burglars can break into a cheap handgun safe in seconds. With a more expensive handgun safe, however, you can benefit from advanced security measures and near-invincible security.
