Looking for a handgun safe for suppressed pistol Login/Join

I'm looking for a handgun safe that fits a pistol with a suppressor installed. My current P220 w/Silencerco Osprey 45 requires a safe with about 16" to 16.5" inside length. I'd also like it to fit inside the drawer of my bedside nightstand if possible.

So far I have found this SentrySafe XL that has a 14" inside length:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/prod...1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

That's close but still a bit too short until I can get a smaller pistol can (lengthy NFA wait times). I like that the door opens on top and it will fit in my nightstand drawer. I'm not thrilled about the battery powered buttons but at least it has a manual keyed backup. If I already had a shorter can that fit I'd give it a try.


I have also found this FAS1 safe:

Looks like it has about a 19" inside length so it will fit my current P220 w/can easily. I also like the simple mechanical keypad. But it's pretty big so it would have to sit on the floor next to the bed. It's also very pricey at $370 by the time the manual lock and shipping are added in.

Any other good options? I'm not trying to thwart a motivated thief, just wanting to keep my pistol out of innocent hands with kids and visiting family members.

I don't use one for a suppressed pistol, but I really like the FAS1 safes. They are very solid, well built, and the simplex lock is easy to customize the code for. They are on the pricey side, but are built like a tank. You can drill some holes in it to bolt to the bed frame if you want. I like the ease of the lock and how it presents the pistol for the draw.

Big thumbs up for Fas Safe. I own two of the standard size safes and love them. Order them with the optional carpeted interior.

Buy once cry once, especially if you are planning on keeping an NFA weapon next to your bed.

YMMV.

Thanks guys, looks like I haven't missed any other options then.

I have no problem spending the money for the right solution that I will use long term. The issue is that the FAS1 doesn't fit in my nightstand drawer. I want something that is out of sight and out of mind and it would be sitting on the floor next to the bed all the time.

So I would only use the FAS for about 1 year until I could get a shorter can that would fit in a smaller safe that does fit in the nightstand, like the first one I posted. That's why the $370 doesn't seem worth it to me.

That makes sense.

Troubles of using a suppressed pistol for HD, I guess.

For the money, how about a long-gun case or something similar?
(Out of sight if you have a bed skirt.)




Maybe even toss a rifle in there too?

I can certainly understand that it might not be the solution for you Brett. The most secure option, with theft in mind, is anchoring to the concrete slab. If that's not as much of a concern you could possibly mount horizontally under your bed so it is out of sight.

While mounting in a drawer is not an option, you can drill these and mount it just about any way as long as the door will swing open and you can access your weapon. Thanks again for your consideration and I just wanted to make sure you knew that they don't have to sit upright.

Thanks for the additional ideas, I'll certainty keep those in mind.
