In the case of a home intrusion, you'll want to retrieve your gun as quickly and easily as possible. Still, you want your gun to be locked away in a safe, so only those who are supposed to have access to it do. Such situations, though unlikely, are what make biometric gun safes important. Safes with fingerprint lock protection give you the quickest and safest way to keep your weapons away until you need them.
Reasons to use Fingerprint Lock Protection for Your Gun Safe
1. Ease of AccessThere isn't anything more accessible than a simple fingerprint scan. With a biometric safe, you won't have to worry about a lost key or about messing up a manual combination at the moment when you need to get it right. You can get into these safes in seconds. Most fingerprint-scanning safes come with backlit displays, so you'll even be able to find and access it in the dark.
2. SafetyAdmittedly, it puts the mind at ease knowing that these types of safes are only going to recognize fingerprints you've allowed to be programmed in. You can let it only identify you, or you can scan in the prints of everyone in the household so that anyone could go for the gun when the situation becomes dire. These safes are also the most child-friendly. There's no key and no combination that a child looking over your shoulder could remember, so you can rest easy knowing your kid isn't going to get ahold of the gun.
3. PortabilitySmall biometric gun safes can be conveniently taken with you anywhere. A compact size is ideal for traveling, especially to a new place where you might not be immediately sure about the quality of safety. Having your gun handy in a hotel room or on the road can make you a lot less anxious about the possibility of being unprepared for unexpected situations, especially if your family is with you. Of course, we have numerous large biometric gun safes available as well, like our National Classic Select safes.
4. Minimal Setbacks
Some people raise their brows at how much more expensive these types of safes are than others, but the safety of you and your family is ultimately more than worth the price. Some also worry about the battery-powered nature, but these safes can be charged with A/C adapters like a laptop, so as long as you don't forget to keep it charged, you'll be okay. Lastly, if worst comes to worst, biometric safes usually, if not always, come with backup keys, so if you can keep one handy, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to get in.
