BARSKA Quick Access Biometric Rifle Safe
As a gun owner, safety is more than just an afterthought. It’s a necessity, and you certainly can’t afford to be lax about the way you treat your firearms. No matter what your particular needs are, they’ll usually tend to gravitate towards the same as those of your peers: reliability, ease of use, and function. Of course, you also have to worry about cost, but every now and then, you’ll be able to find a safe that meets all your needs while still being affordable. The BARSKA security safe certainly does have all the features you might want, but you’ll have to keep a few things in mind before you buy it.

What Needs Improvement
If you’re a gun owner who’s simply looking for an entry-level cabinet to store your guns and keep them away from children, the BARSKA is one of the best gun safes for under $500. It offers decent protection from theft, is easy on the eyes, and won’t take up too much space in your home compared to some of the higher end gun cabinets on the market. Although the safe isn’t as balanced in terms of weight distribution between the door and housing, you shouldn’t run into any problems as long as you bolt the safe down to the floor and against the wall. (In fact, you should already be anchoring the safe if you intend on buying a safe of this caliber in the first place.) The safe certainly isn’t big enough to fit any bazookas, but this shouldn’t be a big deal to a casual enthusiast.
