Strength and Reliability are two words that best describe this beautifully crafted Fort Knox Personal Pistol Safe. With a thick 10-gauge steel body and a 3/16" tamper-resistant door this safe is not only practically impossible to break open but it would be insanely difficult to even dent this bad boy. The heavy duty tamper-resistant hinge is placed under the door to protect it from attack. It features the tried and true Simplex push-button mechanical lock which is fast and easy to use with the potential of 1,081 different combinations. The antique silver powder coat finish gives a durable yet beautiful look that creates a sense of strength and quality. The interior is carpet lined to help protect your valuables and guns from damage or scratches. You can easily fit 1 or 2 compact guns in this handgun safe. The pre-drilled holes in the bottom make it convenient to be bolted down to the floor, a drawer, or any other flat surface. These pistol boxes come with a manufacturer's lifetime warranty and surpasses the California Department of Justice firearm safety device requirements proving its extreme quality. This Fort Knox Personal Pistol Box is truly the best bang for your buck!

1) Very robust design - meaning it is made from solid plate steel and not gauge metal. The safe does not deflect or twist when you pick it up or set it down on an uneven surface.
2) The door springs open after the open knob it turned. You do not have to pull it open. (if the safe is vertical, the opening mechanism is not strong enough to open the door all the way).
3) The lock is easy to operate and changing the combination is simple. (Dean Safe included their own instructions on how to change the combination that were easier to follow than the manufacturer's).
4) The lock does not depend on batteries or any other electronic component. This is import to me for situations where access to the safe quickly and reliably is absolutely required. (i.e. no failed batteries, no failure to read your hand/finger, no cord unplugged).
5) There are attachment holes already in the bottom so that the safe can be bolted down and secured.
6) The safe is small enough to fit about anywhere (drawer, bedside table, under the bed, closet, etc.).
1) The only real con I have would be the small size. I wish there was an option for a bigger safe. That said, the small size does allow for the safe to be stored and hidden in more places that a larger safe would not allow.
Overall I am very please with how the safe operates and the level of protection it provides combined with its reliability.
Note - some users have commented that the buttons had too much play or moved around. Mine did not have that problem at all.
The copy I received had a bent door that clearly had pry marks in the paint from a textured flathead screwdriver. This also obviously indicates how easy it is to pry and bend this. Now, it clearly hadn’t been compromised or opened, but I believe it easily could have been. Granted, if your purpose is just to keep curious kids out, that might not matter. But then why pay for metal thicker than the thinner versions? V-Line and Stealth both carry multiple thickness versions.
The interior is carpeted. Actually, it’s synthetic carpet on regular corrugated cardboard with spray adhesive to keep it together. The three pieces covering the back, bottom, and top/sides came out by lifting an edge. This exposes the metal, which is not painted. I would be concerned about corrosion/rust. The welds look ok though. I’m not a welder, though.
The back of the push button mechanism is open to the interior. There is no welded shield for it. Why does that matter on the inside, you ask? The dean safe employee I spoke with said that enclosing the mechanism prevents punching out the keypad in a brute force attack.
If I needed the small side door configuration, I’d still consider this. But I’d probably spray paint the interior and use different foam or carpeting material. Otherwise the Amsec / Stealth version is a better bet. Can’t speak to V-Line as I haven’t seen one in person.
