Most stand up gun safe models are actually long gun safe models so if you are looking for a long gun safe, you can expand your list by characterizing them as the standing gun safe models. The reason why they are called like that is that they are higher than they are wide which makes them the best options for long guns.
Most standing gun safe models are also known as the tall gun safes because they store long guns which need more storage space than handguns or pistols. The good thing about most tall gun safe models is that they are easily converted into high capacity safes. The big stand up gun safe models are easily adjustable with additional shelving systems but the smaller long guns safes don’t have that luxury. In the smaller long guns safes, you can install door organizers that can turn your 8-gun safe into 16-gun safe with 8 pockets and pouches made for handguns.
If you aren’t interested in handgun safes because you are more of a long gun safe person then I highly suggest you take a look at my stand up the gun safe list because it is all about long guns and rifles. Other additional storage space you can use for ammo because it is smart move to keep the ammo and rifles together.
Top 5 Tall Gun Safe Model Reviews
Barska Quick Access Tall Gun Safe AX11652
This is one of the most popular tall gun safe models because of its slim design. The size of the safe allows you to store it in the closet or even behind the door, but that means you can’t store many long guns inside. If you need a gun safe that can store 4 long guns and it has one additional shelf for the ammo or a couple of handguns then I suggest you take a detailed look at this stand-up gun safe.
This slim gun safe comes with a special and quick reaction biometric lock that can store up to 120 different fingerprints. That is very impressive but I am not sure why would you need that many options for storing fingerprints. Besides that high capacity memory, there is one more thing that makes this biometric lock so good. It has an impressive reaction time because it can open the safe in under 2.5 seconds and that is why this standing gun safe called the “quick access” safe.
Stack-On 8-Gun Safe GCB-8RTA
The best proof that the simplest things are usually the best is this stand up gun safe made by Stack-On. This gun safe is made of thin bud durable steel and it is more like a cabinet than a safe. The reason I would say that are the thin walls and the simplicity of the lock. The lock works on the simple lock and key principles like a school cabinet or gym locker, but this construction is better and more durable.
Inside the safe is also pretty simple; it has a rifle rack for 8 guns and it has one small shelf at the top so you can store the ammo for the rifles. You can choose the black or the hunter green color which is pretty cool, but that is pretty much all you can adjust. The reason why this tall gun safe is so popular is its simplicity; low price and good quality so definitely consider this model too.
Stack-On 10-Gun Safe GCB-910
Another Stack-On standing gun safe worth mentioning is actually pretty similar to the model above, only bigger. This gun cabinet can store 10 long guns inside and ammo on the shelf above the rifle rack. The shelf is at the back of the safe so you can store long guns in the safe in front of the shelf. The interior has carpeted bottom so you can avoid scratching your rifles on the floor.
Just like the model above, this stand-up gun safe is made of durable steel and it comes with the lock and key locking system. The security of the safe is pretty ok, it has one full-length steel piano hinge that keeps the door locked at the top and the bottom of the tall gun safe for the better sturdiness of the door.
Stack-On 18-Gun Safe
The last Stack-On model is also the biggest one because it can store up to 18 long guns, which is double the capacity of other models on the Tall gun safe list. The most interesting part about this standing gun safe is the fact that it is fully convertible. You can use it as the 18-long guns safe or you can change the interior and transform it into a 9-long gun safe with storage shelves. If you want to organize the safe by your needs, this stand-up safe may be the one for you.
The interior has foam padding on the bottom and on every shelf so you can be sure that your belongings are secured even from scratches. The lock on the cabinet is the same as other Stack-On models – traditional lock and key system with a full-length piano hinge. Just like other Stack-On cabinets, this is a great choice because it is affordable and secure, but you can’t compare it with real gun safes on the market.
Best Choice Products 5-gun Safe
The last tall gun safe on this list is made by the Best Choice Products which is not that famous brand, but their products are pretty good. This standing gun safe has a slightly different interior because it comes with one lockbox inside the safe instead of the regular shelf. The lockbox is located at the top, right above the rifle rack that can store 5 long guns.
The construction of the safe is made of heavy-duty solid steel and the lock is a digital combination lock that requires a special PIN number, but it is simple to use. It has a simple keypad and the moment you enter the right PIN, the safe is opened. Besides the lock, the door is equipped with locking bolts and concealed hinges so you can expect a certain level of security. This safe will keep your long guns secured.
