Buying a pistol safe can prove to be difficult, that is why I have rounded up my favorites. So how do those safes all stack up? Which one really is the best in each of their categories. Check out below for my favorite products in the heavy duty handgun safes, quick access handgun safes and vehicle safes.
1. Fort Knox PB1 Original Handgun Safe – Heavy Duty Handgun Safes Winner
This Fort Know safe has one of the thickest steel features of pretty much any main stream pistol box in the industry. It doesn’t require a key, or an electronic keypad and instead uses a Simplex lock that allows for quicker access without the battery that can fail. With bolt holes for securing the safe, gas struts to open quickly, and a pretty good amount of room to allow storage of the largest hand gun, this is a hard product to beat.
2. Vaultek VT10i – Quick Access and Portable Handgun Safe Winner
The Vaultek VT10i brings ease of access to the market. With so many options to access including fingerprint, keypad, key, and even via phone in one unit there aren’t many features that are left out. While featuring thinner steel than the Fort Knox safe it allows for portability for when you are on the go.

3. Console Vault Vehicle Safes – Best Vehicle Safe
Console Vault pushes out some great quality products for specific vehicles. Once installed into the vehicle it gives some of the best protection available for keeping thieves from stealing your valuables or firearms while you are on the go. The thick 12 gauge steel build keeps out crow bars, or smash and grabs.
