I've had two GunVaults. In both cases, they fail to open sometimes on the first try. I'd say they each open 8 out of 10 times on the first try. They open on the second or third try, though sometimes they seem to need more. But obviously if the point is quick access, this is a huge fail. I have had the case where I've needed to go find the keys to get it open. I have one of the big two-shelf ones and I had one of the small ones. Both have had the same issue. By "fail to open" I mean I type in the correct keystrokes on top and I can hear the mechanism try to unlatch but it fails to open. Sure, they open with keys, but the point is (a) quick access, and (b) no access by kids, so keeping keys nearby defeats the purpose. Is there a better quick-access GunVault-style safe? I have a real gun safe but want something bedside.
