The HQ800 Standard Biometric Keypad Rifle Safe by Barska features three different methods of securing and accessing your firearms. A biometric fingerprint scanner allows an authorized user to open the safe with the touch of a finger. The HQ800 Rifle Safe can also be accessed using a digital PIN pad, and includes two traditional keys as a third access option. Barska's HQ800 successfully combines security and quick accessibility into a single rifle safe that any firearm owner can rely upon.
Exactly what I needed
Good safe, and exactly as advertised. I have two AR15 rifles and don't have plans to get any others, so I didn't want a very big safe - something slim and just big enough to hold my two rifles, plus mags. This fits my needs perfectly. At ~$300, the price was also what I had in mind as I didn't want to spend too much. There's another Barska safe (AX11652) that's a bit cheaper, but it only has the fingerprint biometric reader. I like that this safe (AX12760) has multiple options for opening (via either a key or also a PIN) as I worried that the fingerprint reader might fail or take too long to open in an emergency situation. Setting up both my PIN and fingerprint were easy, and so far, both methods work well. The biometric scanner reads my fingerprint reliably and pretty quickly. Although, in an emergency situation, my first option will probably be to use the PIN. The biometic scanner/PIN keypad uses 4 AA batteries, but also has the option of powering up using a 9V battery as an external power source in case the 4AAs die on you, which I think is a nice touch. Overall, this is a good safe, particularly for the price. Of course I could've gotten a better safe if I wanted to spend a lot more, but so far, this safe is perfect for my requirements.Santana
