Does anyone know about these? I'm going to order one or the other soon. First Model, made by Hand Gun Safe: [URL=http://www.handgunsafe.com/wall_safe.htm]www.handgunsafe.com/wall_safe.htm[/URL] [IMG]http://www.handgunsafe.com/wallsafe4.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://www.handgunsafe.com/wallopen.jpg[/IMG] This model can be mounted with the door swinging either way - I need the hinges to be on the right. It cost [b]$197 + $16 s/h[/b]. Weighs 29 pounds, 3/16 inch steel. - - - - - - - This is the second model, made by v-line: [URL=http://www.vlineind.com/html/quick_vault.html]http://www.vlineind.com/html/quick_vault.html[/URL] [IMG]http://www.vlineind.com/assets/images/wsnet.jpg[/IMG] And can be ordered thru the Long Island Shooting Club for [b]$179.95[/b] shipping included. Weighs 20 pounds, 3/8" steel. I don't know if this one can be mounted the opposite way (with the hinges on the right). - - - - - - This will be used to hold one or two handguns. I already have a good safe that with better locks. This new one will be hidden from view and keep stuff away from kids, but still have almost-instant access. Looks like model #2 is thicker steel but weighs less? Sizes are about the same, 12x14". BUT, if model #2 cannot be mounted with the hinges on the right, it won't work. Model #2 also comes with a removable shelf that looks like it can only work with hinges on the left. Does anyone use either of these and any good? Any input would be appreciated, Thanks, Blackie [This message has been edited by AR BLACK (edited 08-08-2001).]

If money is not the issue, get a full blown gun vault. Then you have room for rifles, pistols ammo, jewelry, finacial papers, legal docs, whatever. [beer]

I'd also take a look at the gun locker/rifle locker. [url]http://www.gunlocker.com/specs.htm[/url] The rifle locker gives you the advantage of having up to four long guns close by with quick access.Plus you can open it with either a key or the keypad combo.

I would recomend anything manufactured by the first company, R&D Enterprises. I have two of their quick access handgun boxes, one I use for safe storage, the other I use in my Personal Protection class. They make a first class product. Also, look at the weight difference, 29lbs vs 20lbs. [b][i]What's up with the 3/8" steel claim on the second one? Gotta be a typo, or a composite construction.[/i][/b]

Jack: thanks for the info... that's the stuff I'm looking for. I just caught the 3/8" statement. From their website: [i]3/8" thick steel lock block adds strength to lock.[/i] Note the [b]lock block[/b] is actually 3/8", they don't actually say how thick the steel is on the rest of the safe. Very sneaky advertising if you ask me. OK, I'm going for the R&D Enterprises Hand Gun Safe (picture #1).
