WTB Rifle Safe 3-5 Gun

I am looking for a safe that can hold 3-5 guns. Main requirement is that it is less than 13 inches wide.

I'll take any type of lock, but prefer combination followed by electric followed by key and lastly biometric. Not looking for Fort Knox, but something like a stack on or similar.

Sometimes there simply is space limitations that need to be worked within. Since the OP specifically asked for less than 13", it may well be the case. For 13", the OP may be putting the safe between wall studs.

you know the first thing you'll be doing after you buy that small (tiny) safe? looking for a 2nd safe! i haven't even seen a filing cabinet that narrow. consider finding another place in your home that might be able to house something a little bigger.

If space is not an issue, please consider something much larger. You will find that firearms are like potato chips. You can't have just a few. They will multiply right before your eyes. I recently sold a Garand collection of 20 rifles and 3 barreled actions. I already have half of those spaces filled with other rifles. It's as bad as any addiction out there.

I think you'll be sorry buying something so small.

Not to mention the fact that a gun safe is a good alternative to store anything important. Get yourself a fire bag and put all of your important papers in that and then store the bag in your safe.

Good Luck!

You are right on. This isn't my only safe, I am just looking to put some storage in an odd spot.

I just got this one as a closet safe to hold a rifle, pistol, and some jewelry. The review on Amazon wasn't good but it's skinny, has quick access, a back up key, and fits in the closet well. It's also lined which was a must for me. I could probably fit two rifles in it but I only want my HD gun in there. There is also left over room for ammo on the shelf.

It suits my needs and keeps a gun nearby while keeping the kids out.

Same safe as at home depot, but home depot has it for cheaper. I just need to screw it to the wall and it's good to go.

That is one I have been searching for. So far the only place that I have seen one in stock is down in VA and only has the biometric lock, not the keypad one.
