With the growth in the E-commerce space, the ways you can buy a gun safe have grown exponentially. You can now buy safes directly from the manufacturer, from online stores, from brick and motor stores, or even second hand from the public.

How do you buy a gun safe?

1. Buying a gun safe directly from a manufacturer

Buying a safe directly from a manufacturer is becoming more and more popular now that it is easier to own an e-commerce shop.

Getting safes from these companies is just like buying from really any other company. You choose the safe you want to buy, add it to your cart, and go through the checkout.

One benefit of buying directly from the manufacturer is the knowledge base that the company has of the product. Many companies out there sell quite a few different brands, so their knowledge is limited of any individual brand.

However a manufacturer will know it’s own product well.

A couple examples of gun safe manufacturers that can be purchased directly from are Rhino, and Console Vault.

2. Purchasing a gun safe from an online retailer

There are many online gun safe retailers out there today, as anyone can start a retail shop.

Make sure when you are buying, that you are buying from an online shop that is well known. Take a look at reviews on google, and other 3rd party online review sites.

Once you have decided on a couple different sites you would like to buy from, make sure to cross-shop each one and make sure you are getting the best value.

Then add it to your cart, and buy it.

3. Brick and Motor, purchasing from a physical store

There are of course the physical stores you can buy a safe from. These are the stores where you are able to walk in the door and talk to a real person.

These stores tend to specialize in a couple brands of safes, and they tend to be a little more expensive. However don’t let that put you down, the great thing about brick and mortar stores is their after sales support.

Physical gun safe stores are just like any other physical store, and have a much smaller demographic that is tied to location, so they want to make every transaction count.

Because of this, you can make sure you are getting the best safe for you, as they are willing to help you out to make sure you are happy.

4. Buying a gun safe second hand

With the internet continuing to become more a part of everyone life, people have now really started to sell their safes online as well.
