Gun safes are a little different from regular safes, but with SentrySafe you get a product that is basically impenetrable because it has all of the features of a regular safe included in the original design. As we move up this list you are going to notice an increase in security, and this forward movement is present in products made by SentrySafe. This company prides itself on making products for those gun owners who are willing to spend a premium for high-level security.

This is one of the few safes on the market that can be used in a variety of ways. Even if you do not have guns, this safe can serve as an adequate storage space for a variety of other goods such as money or jewels, and its price point is a lot lower than what actual safes tend to be priced at. Hence, you can use this safe as a tool to help keep a bunch of different kinds of valuables safe from harm, a huge bonus when you consider the fact that most safes are barely big enough to carry a single gun.


One flaw that many best gun safes tend to have is that they are susceptible to damage by fire. Hence, the benefit that this safe provides with its fire protection is quite significant. The metal exterior is coated in a fireproof lacquer that would keep your weapons safe in the event of a fire breaking out at your home. This is very important – for your guns as well – because bullets can often go off when extreme heat is applied. Additionally, the fireproof lacquer would prevent thieves from using heat to break into the safe in order to steal your valuable guns. Apart from being fire resistant, this safe is waterproof as well. In fact, it can be submerged in water for up to 24 hours before the water starts to leak through.

When you take into account the incredible durability and versatility of this safe, the price point is actually extremely reasonable. It is slightly lower than the market average, and for this lower than average price you are going to get a well above average product.

With this product, you are going to get an old school combination lock. While this is certainly more than adequate for basic theft protection, you have products such as the aforementioned additions to this list that have highly advanced biometric scanners at only a nominally higher price point. You will have to leverage storage capacity and durability in exchange for this rather obsolete security system. All things considered, the combination lock is top notch, but it would not be as resistant to efforts made by thieves as previous entries to this list.

With great storage space comes great size, this much is obvious. However, this product does not do a very good job of maximizing the storage space that it provides. Hence, the safe ends up becoming bulky and difficult to find a spot for, especially if you do not have a very big home in the first place.

Unlike other gun safes, this safe does not have a dedicated holster or slot that you would be able to fit your gun into. This is rather disappointing because you would have to face the prospect of your gun being knocked around inside the safe if it is ever moved. Guns are not exactly fragile, but you would not want your prized possession to be all scratched up either so this is a major negative point.

While this product certainly has its drawbacks, it offers enough benefits to counter them to justify its place in the top three gun safes on the market. While its weight is going to be an issue, this is not meant to be a portable product after all. Rather, it is supposed to be something that you can store in one area for the long term. The fact that you can keep all kinds of valuables safe in here certainly helps make it a product worth buying, especially when you consider the surprisingly affordable price point.
