Gun Safe Reviews by Jenni | SentrySafe G0135 Black Safe 5 Long Gun Maximum Capacity Safe

This is almost more of a strong box then a gun safe. But I have to admit that this is probably the sturdiest and best build quality item that I have come across at this price range. Sure, granted, if you slap down a few grand you’ll end up with a much better safe but really, this one takes the cake in its price range.

It is listed as a 5 (rifle) gun safe, however, if you have large scopes attached to them you might find that you’ll only be able to store 3 or 4 long rifles. None the less enough room for me. Speaking of room, if you have rifles barreled longer than 24” you might want to modify the shelf a little bit. It is an easy fix to simple hotglue 2 wood strips to the sides of the safe and elevate the shelf. I got this tip from reading other gun safe reviews, it is a great modification that requires little more than 5 minutes.

I have this guns safe inside my bedroom closet. I have one handgun laying on the top shelf and two shotguns and a long rifle standing upright. It may not be a fireproof safe but that is not the point. I simply wanted my long rifles (and guns) safely stored and easy accessible. I cannot stress enough that I really feel that I spend my money well and the research I did on Amazon payed off. I don’t think there is a better safe in the $200 price range, which is, a low price to pay for safety of your kids and family.

All in all, I’ll recommend this safe to anyone that is looking for a very sturdy, price friendly, easy to install (long) gun safe. I would recommend getting this from Amazon as they are very trustworthy of course and also ship fast. Oh yea, you could also read more reviews as I did before I bought this one. It will really help you get your moneys worth!

Where Should You Install Your Gun Safe?

Gun safes are available in various forms, based on where owners wish to install them. Most of these are designed to be free-standing. However, this makes them too apparent and in-your-face, and these can easily be identified at first glance. Some gun owners like to put them on walls or the floor. As a gun safe owner, or someone who is planning to buy such a safe soon, it is important to determine first where you would like to set it up.


Determine whether you would like to keep your safe concealed, and in an area that is away from sight. If you live in a state that is too stringent with gun ownership and display, it is best to install your safe in a location that is not frequented by outsiders. This could be your bedroom, library or meditation room.

Space away from children’s rooms

Children happen to be a curious lot, and it is best that you install your gun safe in a spot that is away from their room. If you are using a mechanical or keypad lock safe, there is high probability that your kid will sneak up from behind, see the combination number and remember it for easy access to your gun when you are not around.

Pro Tip: The best way to keep children out is by using a top fingerprint scanner safe.

Away from fire

Guns and ammo should always be kept away from fires. Never install a gun safe in a space close to the kitchen or fireplace. Do not set it up in a room above or below your kitchen. Even if the room is beneath your kitchen, a fire hazard can make your kitchen collapse and fall directly on your gun cabinet. Also avoid setting it up in your garage, where there could be flammable chemicals such as paint thinners or gasoline. In a severe fire, any spot with a concrete slab is best. The first-floor area, over a crawl space, is also a good spot to keep your safe in.

Away from humidity, moisture and water

Such things can damage your safe and eventually, your gun. It is often that gun owners set up gun safes and cabinets in the basement due to concrete slab floors in that spot. However, if you have a humid basement, you should make use of a dehumidifier for reducing the level of humidity. This will prevent any damage to your safe. Make sure that the basement does not fall in a flood zone.

SentrySafe G1459E 14-Gun Electronic Lock Safe | Gun Safe Reviews

Before I start my actual review I want to say thanks to this website because before I bought a best gun safes for my gun I decided to do a lot of research first. And I picked up a few things from reading the reviews on here. Like the ease of having an electric lock as opposed to fumbling with keys in the dark under stress and all.

Ok why did I want a safe? Well I hunt a lot and I want to keep my kids safe from my firearms. They are very disciplined when it comes to guns but I am not taking any chance. Anyway, I have two long guns and 2 handguns and I wanted something sturdy and spacious. So after doing a TON of research I decided to go with a Sentrysafe, because they came recommended over and over again. Now as for the exact model I thought to myself, what if I want to add to my gun collection, which I am sure to do at some point. So I decided to go with a larger model than my actual needs at THIS moment. That being said, this safe is very spacious and it safes my guns from getting scratched up and all. Also, the top shelf keeps some ammunition and a little box with valuables.

As for my budget, I didn’t want to be a cheapskate on something this important. So I set my budget at $600 including shipping costs. The best part in this is that I wanted to get this safe at something like $600 but then 2 days later the price dropped to $480 something. So I called Amazon customer service and I asked for a return on the price difference, turns out that my payment didn’t go through yet so they invoiced me again with the lower price and so I payed $480. INCLUDING SHIPPING!

I also glued in an extra shelf for a jewelry box and other small valuables. The safe is large enough (or my guns short enough) to leave some extra room. You could also just lower the top shelf by gluing in some wood on the sides.

The delivery process was great, the company called me to go arrange a schedule and date for them to deliver the safe. They came early in the morning so I just needed to take the morning off from work and get back in the evening to install the safe. Great service! Nice guys as well.

Oh yeah, the door opens well and without any ‘squeaks’ or anything like that. Now I would recommend bolting it to the floor. Although it is unlikely for someone to pick it up and walk away with it (unless superman) it is better to be ‘safe’ (no pun intended) that sorry.

All in all I am glad I read some gun safe reviews on this site and Amazon before I decided to make my decision. I am extremely happy with the safe and I feel like money well spent! highly recommended gun safe!

Regards, Richard (Thanks again!)

Gun Safe Reviews by Chris | Centurion 12 Gun Safe By Liberty Safe

I will start off by saying that this is one good looking biometric gun safes. I initially placed it inside a closet but I decided to take it out and place it dead bang inside my bedroom. It is that good looking. Ok so now my actual gun safe review.

As always I decided to do some research first and look at Amazon to see what safes in by budget ($600) are available. I ended up reading a ton of reviews and finally decided to order this safe. It is lined with carpet and very heavy made. I feel like a criminal can’t just put a crowbar between the door and pry it open. No chance at all.

Besides the nice finish it is pretty spacious too. The manufacturer say that it can hold 12 long guns but with scopes on them you’ll probably only fit 9 in there. But I don’t even own 9 scoped long guns so no problem for me. The shelves are fully adjustable and can hold up quite some items. In the top shelve I have my 2 handguns with their respective magazines. On the other shelves I have some boxes of ammunition for the long guns and my shotgun.

I decided to bolt this gun safe to the floor and had to buy four 1/2 inch x 6inch sleeve anchors to securely fit it to the floor. This will never ever come undone and it gives me great confidence that no one is going to be able to just rock the safe loose.

Oh yea, I don’t know if it is with every safe but because they glue the carpet inside the safe it may smell like glue when you first open it. So be sure to leave it open to air out for a couple of days. The combination dial is very smooth and I am confident that it will last a long time. I am not sure if it needs and lubrication or if that is absolutely the wrong thing to do but I will read the manual on that.

All in all this is a great safe to store up to 8 or 9 long guns with optics and their ammunition, maybe a few handguns even. As far as security goes, I am pretty sure that this is a very good safe for its money. But if you want a almost impossible to crack safe be sure to take out your wallet and slap a few grand down. This safe is also limited fireproof but that is not why I bought it so no problem for me. I suggest that you take a look at some other gun safe reviews as well!

I would recommend this guns safe to anyone looking for a decent and good looking safe with lots of storage room!

Gun Safe Reviews by Jake | LockSAF biometric fingerprint safe

Ok I decided to redo my previous one star review of this safe. I think I jumped to conclusions as the manufacturer helped me out enormously. I had a malfunctioning safe and before I called the manufacturer I had already left a bad review. My problem with the unit was that it would not open until after 5 swipes of my finger and I just (wrongfully) assumed that it was a bad product. When I got to my senses I realized that with any product, there may be a rotten apple in the bunch. Btw, I’ve gotten this from Amazon so the shipping was free but I had to do business with the manufacturer myself.

Anyway, the manufacturer immediately replaced my safe after listing to my complaints and I must say that the new unit is worth all five stars! It responds fast and almost always on the first try (keep the glass clean!).

Ok so for the actual review: I have this unit installed on the middle shelf of my bedroom closet. It sits at waste level and allows me to quickly scan my fingerprint in case I need to get to the gun fast. The response time is great, not instantly but with a second delay. Basically the biggest reason for getting this safe is to be able to get to the gun even when my heart is beating like crazy and adrenaline rushing. No need to find keys, no need to remember combinations. Also, it keeps my kids clear from my handguns and allows my wife to access them in addition to myself.

The programming is very easy, it takes a minute per finger. In the case of failure to open the safe you can use keys as a backup. Needless to say, you need to keep those keys well separated from the safe (not in it). The power consumption is pretty low, I have used this particular unit for over 6 months now and I measured the voltage level of the 9V battery, it is still a comfortable 9,3V.

Anyway, all in all I feel that my last review was totally missing the boat and I hope I redeemed myself with this update. I highly recommend this unit for all that are looking for a quick, safe and heavy unit to store their guns in. I recommend you go and read some more gun safe reviews to make sure you’ll get the one you want.
