Barska® has been around since 1994, manufacturing sports optics and have been making the popular Barska gun safes range for several years now. The biometric safes in particular are well known for having a much better than average fingerprint reader.

These safes are more suited to a homeowner on a small budget wishing to secure a pistol, rifle or small amounts of cash or valuables. They are ideal for securing items from an opportunist burglar or thief. The locking mechanism on these safes is also sufficient to prevent your children accessing your firearms and valuables.

Most of these safes come fitted with a biometric fingerprint reader but also come supplied with emergency backup keys so that the safe can still be opened if there are any problems with the electronic reader. This is a great help especially if your battery dies and you cannot open the safe.

Many of these safes are small enough to be able to be concealed within the home and the majority of them are supplied with mounting holes already drilled ready to be bolted down securely in your chosen location.

Once your fingerprint has been enrolled in the reader it is then a simple matter to insert your finger upon the scanner to open the safe. This has great benefits especially if you have an intruder inside your home because you do not have to scramble around looking for keys or trying to remember a number code to enter on a keypad.

We have reviewed several of the BARSKA range of safes and most of the ones we have covered are listed below.
