First Alert 5200DF Portable Pistol Safe Review

Sometimes, gun safes can seem a little too bulky or heavy duty for your needs. And it can fee like a waste to spend all that money on a huge, clunky safe when all you need it for is one pistol or handgun. If that sounds like a problem you’ve been having. This smaller portable gun safe from First Alert could be the answer. Learn more about it below!

Features & Benefits

If you’re just looking for something small and simple but still secure and well built, this gun safe could be the perfect choice for you. Check out some of the key specs below:

  • 3 to 8 digit no see keypad
  • Heavy duty steal construction
  • ​Foam padded interior
  • ​Durable spring loaded locking mechanism
  • ​Steel cable for securing to car trunk
  • Predrilled mounting holes for securing to floor or shelf.

It’s small enough to be portable so you can keep it in your trunk or glovebox. But it’s also sturdy enough that it can be mounted or secured so that you can be sure it’s not going anywhere.

We love that it has a nice foam padded interior to make sure your gun doesn’t get dented or scratched. This is important even if you just plan to keep it in the house. But it’s even more important if this will go in the car with you. The bumps and jolts of the road can knock the gun around. With this padding, you know it’s not getting damaged.

Potential Drawbacks To Consider

As with any portable gun safe, it’s more lightweight than one that is meant to be stationary. That is exactly what you need if you want to take it on the go. But if you are looking for something that stays in one place, you will want to opt for something more heavy duty.

What Other Say

One of the best ways to really get a sense of how a product will perform or what kind of benefits it might provide for you is to see how satisfied (or unsatisfied) other people were with it. Check out the following testimonial:

If you're looking for an affordable safe to secure valuables or a firearm. This safe should be considered as a viable option. I own two other small safes which were much more expensive. The First Alert safe is of the same quality and craftsmanship as other top tier safes.

This testimonial shows that you can still get a high quality product that is well designed without breaking the bank (or your gun safe!). If you are willing to do the research, you can get great value for your money.

As helpful as testimonials can be in helping you understand the real value a product can add, you do have to keep in mind that different people do have different needs and priorities.

Buying Advice

We definitely recommend buying from this company to take advantage of their 5 year warranty. That gives you an added measure of security and proves that the company stands behind its own products.
