IF you know anything about gun safes, you already know that not all of them are created alike. There are two things that we mean by this.
The first meaning to “not all of them are created alike” is this: There are gun safes that are made for hand-held firearms and there are those that are made for rifles and other long firearms. You can instantly tell by the size of the gun safe what type of gun it was made for. IF you want to buy a safe for your Smith & Wesson, you obviously need to buy the smaller gun safes.
But size aside, there is one other thing that we mean by gun safes not being created equal: They are not equal in terms of quality. If you check over here, you will see that there are many brands of gun safe manufacturers out there just as there are many makers of guns. While there are those that are made of wood with only a lock and key in the way of safety, there are gun safes out there that are true safety cabinets with a thick body that protects people from accidental firing.
Of course, there is no apples-to-apples comparison between a wooden safe and a metal box. Obviously, the metal gun safe with all the shebangs would be more expensive when compared to the simple wooden gun safe. But then again, you do get what you pay for.
If you want a truly safe gun safe, make sure to buy the metal ones with the lock doors that is difficult to break. You might need to pay hundreds of dollars if not thousands, but trust us, at the risk of accidental firing, they are all worth it.
