    I like the "swing out" rack idea, as long as inertia doesn't take over and cause guns to fly everywhere.

    It's a decent starter "storage unit".
    Especially if you have children around.

    Stay away from electronic locks. Also, Cabela's has a similar ProVault by Liberty (dial lock) on sale this week for $399

    My AMSEC electronic lock has lasted twice as long (so far) as the 2 mechanical dials prior to it.

    And I can get into it 3-5x faster.

    You had 2 mechanical dial locks fail in less than 3 years?

    I swapped out my mechanical lock for an electronic 10 years ago and couldn't be happier.

    The mechanical dial was very touchy and I am sure I could never get into it in a stressful situation.

    Less than a year on my first one because it was replaced under warranty. The second was maybe 2 years. After finally getting it open after almost 30 minutes of trying to get it open I left it unlocked and called a locksmith and had it replaced with the AMSEC electronic. 7 years later it's still works perfectly. I just replaced the batteries for the first time 3-4 months ago.

    They just got to where it would not open on the numbers. I would have to go +/- on one on the numbers to get it to open.

    Yep, see above.
