I am new to guns and gun ownership. This is my third purchase prior to the actual purchasing of the gun. I wanted a gun safe. It had to be something I could give multiple duties: automobile, home and travel usages. I also wanted it light enough that I could/would carry it easily without sacrifice of safety. I looked at a variety of portable safes. I like how this fits easily in my carry bag and under car seat. I had my suitcase stolen while waiting for a taxi at a major US airport. So I especially love how the safe company has this policy. They will not make duplicate keys. So if safe is taken the individual(s) will have a delightful time bashing, cutting or using other means to open it. I am rating 4 stars because the cable is a little short for my vehicle use.
