On one layer I can hold a XD(m) 4.5" with 3 magazines with room to spare. There is a second layer of foam underneath for even more storage.
When opening the lid a bit of force is required to work against the piston. After the lid is open the piston keeps it open until you close it, which takes a bit of force also. It's similar to the idea of closing the trunk of you car, only not as difficult.
I feel safe having this safe with children in the house. There are no youtube videos of a 3 year old opening the safe with a paper clip as with other products.
One thing to note is that the product I got looks slightly different than the product image Amazon shows. I uploaded some image that show how the one I got looks. It didn't bother me that it looked different but in case you are, the differences include:
Different Fort Knox logo
Silver instead of Gold colored lock plate
Black plastic knob turning latch instead of gold metallic looking latch
So far as CONS, I don't really have any to list, but I will include one reality of this safe... with enough time and patience, I've read that someone could open it by running through a list of potential codes. This isn't an issue for me though, because I mainly bought this safe to keep my gun secure from my toddler, and smash and grab type burglaries. Don't let anyone make you believe that any home safe is 100% secure from opening attempts from a determined and educated safe cracker, but this one is secure enough for my needs right now.
Please be aware that the true width of this safe is maybe 1/4"-1/2" larger than stated, which I believe is due to the width of the base being used rather than the lid, which fits over the base. When i measured the space the safe was to fit into, I didn't take this into account, so I'm going to need to sand it down a bit so that the lid can open and shut freely.
The interior foam is firm enough to keep whatever is placed there from moving around, while being soft enough that it won't mar any finishes. I also really like the 4 holes drilled in the base, if you bought some screws and washers this safe could be anchored very nicely.
Interior-wise this safe easily can swallow up a Glock 34 with a Surefire X400 attached and an extra magazine, so any size 1911 or standard frame revolver would be fine. It's probably too small for a Desert Eagle or an extra large framed revolver, but I can't imagine anyone wanting to keep a firearm like that at their bedside unless bear attacks are a thing.
One note on security - the combinations are not endless and could be guessed given enough time, so I would not use this as a replacement for a real safe. I would also recommend that you change the combination at regular intervals, especially if you have children in the house. Speaking of that, while this safe is great for preventing access from children or household members, it is not meant to prevent theft. Given a crowbar and 20 minutes you could easily break the safe open, so again, this is not a replacement for a real safe. The best use case for this is next to your bed, for quick emergency access, at which this excels.
