Just a warning for anyone using a Gun Vault electronic safe. I have a GV1000D that just crapped out on me after a little over two years. I hate to even think about the situation if this had happened during an emergency where you needed the gun quickly as the safe is designed. The only thing I got from Gun Vault's customer service was a reminder that their warranty is only for a year and a suggestion to take it to a local electronic store. I wish I had taken some pictures first, but found some pictures someone else had posted on the net from the same problem and went ahead and tried to fix it without taking pictures. There is a flimsy wire attached to the motor in the safe that snapped. The safe will still open with the key lock, but the electronic keypad is worthless. I crimped down another wire where the original one snapped and it is still not working. I unfortunately have very little skills working on junk like this and even less patience. I have absolutely zero confidence in Gun Vault after this problem and especially after seeing the cheap construction on the internals. I'll be switching to a more simple and reliable design for a handgun safe for my EDC gun.
