In over 50 years of collecting and writing about firearms I've had the chance to own and evaluate a number of gun security products--especially safes. For the most part, if one studies the field he will discover most safes will perform adequately; it's just that there are varying degrees of protection and accessibility depending upon what you want. Recently I've had the opportunity to try out a Pendleton King gun safe and as far as thoughtfulness of design, ease of operation and safeguards are concerned it is at the apex of firearms security. The unique rotary setup permits an optimum of accessibility, versatility and capacity, all the while limiting the amount of space necessary to accommodate the unit. Materials, construction and appearance are just about as good as it gets. It's nice to be able to test a product and find it performs even better than expected and is one that you can wholeheartedly recommend. Such is the case with Pendleton safes.
