About Me

I started this site in early 2010, during my own search for a pistol safe.  I was frustrated by the lack of a consolidated place to read about pros and cons of the various safe manufacturers out there.  You could find information on Amazon, but that was mostly salesy info.  There was a piece here and there from gun forums of someone talking about it, but many of those posts were about gun safes, not pistol safes.

At the end of the day, I thought I could bring some additional information to the rest of the world.  Maybe make the next guy’s search a little easier.  While I don’t sell any of the products, I do have links on the sidebar for many popular handgun safes that people are often searching for.  That will take you to Amazon, where you can make a purchase.  I chose them over other retailers as I trust them and know they will give you great service.

Just a little bit about me:

My name is Todd Christiansen.  I am married with 3 kids (2 girls and 1 boy) under 10.  It makes for a busy house with soccer, school, baseball, and church activities.  I live in the country in a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota.  I am a member of my local gun club, but I would not classify myself as a gun nut.  I own a couple handguns.  My first was a Glock 27, which I still carry most everyday concealed (I have my CCW permit).  In my off-line job, I was doing business in some sketchy parts of Minneapolis and had a couple situations where I did not feel safe.  I bought the Glock and then took several classes on defensive handguns to learn how to use it properly.  I bought my first pistol safe shortly after buying my pistol.  I initially kept the Glock in my small home safe, but found it was not the right application. Since then, I have purchased and demo’d other units.

I hope you enjoy this site and maybe it will make the process of finding that correct pistol safe for you easier.
