It is a good choice for medium sized safes. You can open it without a key. So you don’t have to carry around a key. The newest type of safe lock on the market is the biometric safe also known as the fingerprint safe. It the most secure of the three and it is the best type for a small pistol gun safe. It is very quick to open in a life threatening situation compared to the two. There is no code that you can forget easily in a stressful situation and there is no key to look for. You just swipe you finger across the reader and the safe opens. As simple as that. It is also the best lock type if you have small children in the house,because they can take the key when you are not looking or they can even guess the combination. As fingerprints are unique,there is no chance they can open that safe without you knowing. There have been too many cases of children getting hold of guns and accidentally shoot themselves or someone else.
