Opinion only of course.
Not all safes are created equal, people use gun cases, gun lockers and gun safes.
I have 2, one is more of a gun locker, it is small and is bolted inside of my night stand drawer, to access it you put your finger on the scanner thingy, its called a biometric lock. someone with a large screw driver could pry it open. I rarely keep a gun in it.
The other is a gun safe, large, heavy, bolted to garage floor and wall, it utilizes a combo lock as is most common with gun safes, some have a digital key pad lock, some are biometric.
I figure miy gun safe is good for keeping kids, buddies, punk want to be thieves and such out. I also consider it a reasonable device for protecting the guns within my budget.
I provide a reasonable secure storage, as I think all gun owners shoulkd, as you say nothing is fool proof.
