Found this from another forum and thought it was a great idea, especially for a bedside storage solution that doesn't require keys, a combination and looks really sleek...

That is cool. I have a Gun vault (nonbiometric version) that I've had for years and am very happy with, but have considered upgrading to the biometric model. I will have to check this one out though. I worry my wife will have trouble opening the bedside safe I have now in a stress situation and think a reliable biometric solution is the way to go.

You wouldn't be able to run as many people over with that car if it didn't drive as far. It should only have a 10 gallon fuel tank.

I was looking at that recently. Very cool concept. The only thing I didn't like was the bracelet had the company logo on it. I'm sure with a good bit of tinkering you could setup and rfid chip on just about anything you want to get it open.

Tread lightly with the biometric safes. There seem to be a lot of mixed reviews on all makes and models about the accuracy and consistency of the fingerprint readings. From what I recall a lot of owners were using up all of the memory slots recording different images of their thumb in hopes that they could capture every possible presentation.

It's intriguing, but I hope he's going to have a third party look at the security features before it goes to production. Too many times when making devices such as this, it's easy to get blinded by your design and fail to see the flaws that are built into it. Is the RFID secure, or the fingerprint scanner? Can the scanner be spoofed?

The other problem is building so many features into it, it's going to end up being expensive, and that's going to be a turn off for some. Not saying it needs to be cheap, but how many people are willing to spend $500+ for a single hand gun safe?

Additionally, is it as easy to physically break into as so many other firearms safes seem to be, large and small?

Yup. One of the reasons I haven't gone with the Biometric GunVault are the mixed reviews. I've heard it gets a lot of false reads both that open and don't open the safes. For the price it had better work.

The traditional GunVaults with the finger combo are good though. I've had mine for over 7 years and it never fails unless you put the code in wrong.

In that case I'd say that it didn't fail, you did. (Unless you were testing it, then you didn't fail either).
