Looking to buy a nightstand safe for my handgun. Something that is quick to open ( maybe fingerprint ) and is of course child proof. Also want to secure it to the nightstand.

Yep, gunvault sits in the night stand for me! I have it to where all I have to do is lean over slightly and activate it and grab!

Can the Gunvault bolt down to the nightstand and What if the batteries die? How do you open it ?

There’s usually a covered hole for a key. I had one of the early Gunvaults and it failed, there was a cable, pulley set up that failed. I went with a cheaper Stack On with a keypad. I have had 6 of them for many years and no problems yet. I have two of the bigger ones bolted to the floor and the wall in the bedroom.

Yes, it can be bolted down.

There's a key if the battery dies.

Do your homework!
Several of these so-called "gun safes" offer little more security than your average paper bag.

The design flaws differ from model-to-model, of course, but this should give you an idea.

There's a similar video out there on the Hornady gun "safe", which one would think would be significantly better, but isn't.
Don't even get me started on padlocks... :)

^^^This is true. Yet my 19-month-old hasn't defeated one yet!
