Sentry Safe Quick Access Pistol Safe Review



Disclosure review
eighty mph mom 2015 holiday gift guide
Due to my husband’s profession (police officer), we have always had firearms in our house. When our kids were little (until they were young adults, really), we kept any and all guns out of their reach AND locked up. We were adamant about gun safety and we still are, even though our kids don’t live at home anymore.

We have plenty of friends with small children and naturally we want to keep them safe. The problem with some safes though, is that they are really hard to open. That is a good thing, however, because when we count on our guns to protect us, we want a safe that is not going to give my husband and I trouble when we try to open it.

We were both thrilled when the Sentry Safe Quick Access Pistol Safe arrived. This has quickly become my husband’s favorite safe (and we have had many over the years!). Operating the safe is so simple for us, but it is comforting to know that is is not simple for little hands.  Even though our own children are now grown and out of the house, we do have friends with young children. This is why it is so important to us that we have this easy to operate safe – easy for us that is.

It is the perfect size to keep in a nightstand drawer, or even on top of the nightstand. It comes with two large bolts, in case you want to bolt it down for added security.

A firearms safe that provides readily available access when needed in an emergency, but its pry resistant solid steel construction helps prevent unauthorized access.

As shown below, there is plenty of room in this safe. In addition to holding pistols, it can hold other important things, such as documents, medications, passports or anything else that needs to be safely tucked away.

I actually did a Sentry Pink Fire Safe review a few years back and I primarily keep really important things in there. Now we can enjoy a separate safe for just our guns.

Setting up the safe was really quick and easy. We just inserted the required batteries, and followed the simple instructions to create our code. There is a factory set code, but you’ll definitely want to change this. Your code can be either four, five or six digits.

I made a short video to show you just how easy it is to use!

A simple code is all that is needed, or you might choose to use the included keys instead. It is nice to have options!

Gun safety:
If a household possesses firearms, it is of the utmost importance that they are consistently secured and not easily accessible, especially when children are present. Take maximum security measures by locking-up firearms and storing them in a safe and in an out-of-sight location that is also out of children’s reach. The Sentry Safe Quick Access Pistol Safe provides readily available access when needed in an emergency, but its pry resistant solid steel construction helps prevent unauthorized access. Remember to always remove ammunition before storage, and keep ammunition in a locked location separate from firearms.

Another item you might want to consider if you have children in your home (or kids that visit frequently), is the Master Lock 107DSPT Gun Lock. Designed with a deadbolt locking mechanism, it can only be opened and closed when the key is inserted. One can never be too safe!

If you know someone who has children and firearms, this safe would make the perfect holiday gift. We are proud to include this in our holiday gift guide.

  1. I’d love to win this safe because I have grandchildren in my household and I don’t need them getting their hands on things they don’t need to.

  2. I’d like to win this safe because my husband insists on keeping a gun in the bedroom and with our first little one on the way, I’m not comfortable having a gun laying around and not secured.

  3. I would like to win this for my son. He has a gun for protection, but now my granddaughter is walking and I want to make sure it’s kept safely out of her reach.

    I would love to win this safe for the security of keeping a gun as well as other valuables locked away not only from people that don’t belong in my home but especially those that do.

  5. I’d like to win this for my husband to keep his handguns secure but more at hand for security (we live in an isolated area).

  6. I have a teenage son who really wants to get a gun of his own, before I would even consider that we would have to have a safe like this for it.

  7. This would be nice to have for my husband’s gun, so it is securely stored away and only he can have access to it. Thanks.

  8. I own a safe but it’s not very easy and reliable to open. This looks like a very good product and I would love the chance to try this out.

  9. I have the hardest time keeping important (and dangerous) together in a safe place and now with a little one, its more important than ever to have something like this!

  10. I really want to win this so we have a safe place to keep my hubby’s new pistol as well as to keep our other valuables! He would be so excited!

  11. I would love to win this safe because it would help me keep important documents and other items safely secure.

  12. Elizabeth Fitzmaurice on

    I’d love to win this safe because I own two handguns and have no safe place to keep them, when needed, such as if children were visiting my home or if I were out of town and leaving the guns at home.

  13. I’d like to win this for my son because he recently purchased a handgun and I would like for him to have a safe for better security.

    This would be great to keep the firearm we are purchasing soon safe, with 3 kids its utmost importance to have a great safe for our gun.

  15. I would like to win because of the security that this safe provides. I also like the option of either a code or a key to open it. Thanks

  16. I would love to win this for my husband. He currently keeps all of his guns in our upright safe but has said that he wishes he had a safe for a pistol that he can keep nearby, Our safe isn’t in a location that would be easy to get to in the event of an intruder.

  17. Thank You for the giveaway…we have a pistol secured with a trigger lock; this safe would provide better access & safer storage.
