We are currently using this to store our handgun next to the bed in case of something bad going down. It works well for making sure the kids and others don't have access to the gun. As I said in the title, though, it's not exactly fast-access. To open the box, you need to punch in your code, press the key then rotate the lock knob to the open position. It doesn't take long, but in a panic situation when adrenalin is flowing, it would be easy to foul it up and have to start over. It would be nice if the keys were illuminated, but they're not, so plan on needing some ambient light or a flashlight when using this in the dark. We plan to buy a different fast-access box in the future, but for the time being, this is serving us well. FYI: This box can also be opened with a key. There is a plastic cover in the center of the door between the key pad and lock knob. The lock cylinder is behind this cover. I left the cover off so the lock can be easily accessed.
