Bedside safes

My daughter is now old enough that we are in need of a safe way to store a couple of pistols. I've been looking at the boimetric vs the keypad versions. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Safety is our #1 priority. Thanks

    I don't know, but, if I had to choose I'd go for the keypad.
    But, it must have a key backup that works easy.

    I've lived in a lot of houses and I still do not see how a bedside
    safe fits the decor or furniture of a normal bedroom. A safe in the
    closet bolted down maybe, but, I'd rather have a bigger safe and get out and put
    back in, the gun as necessary for use and to keep the child away from it.

    I realize this is a twice or more a day chore and requires a temp location out
    of reach of the child when you are distracted by chores. Trigger locks can also
    supplement safety for short special occasions.

    The bigger safe lets you store the jewelry as well if you do not have many guns.

    Home defense situations can occur in seconds, less time than could open a safe.
    Educate your kids.

    Gunvault Microsafe is what I use.....four finger pads in the shape of your hand (4 digit code), and comes with a key back-up. $90 @ GM in my area. slim enough to fit in a nightstand drawer and run the anchor cable out the back to lock around a bedpost. Only problem I've had recently was my lack of changing the 9V battery......gotta change the battery like you do with a smoke detector.
    God show's mercy on drunks and dumb animals.........two outa three ain't a bad score!
