Since you likely want to get to the point and find the best budget gun case you can, I’ll start with my top three picks.
- These are the SentrySafe QAP1BE, the Stealth Handgun Hanger, and the Stack On GCWB-10-5-DS. The SentrySafe and the Stealth both offer handgun storage that is very secure, yet quick to access in the event of an emergency.
- The SentrySafe is a great choice if you only have one or two handguns, while the Stealth is a better choice if you have more–it can store up to five.
- Meanwhile, the Stack On is a case for long guns. It made top of the list for storage capacity–up to 10 long guns–and its simple yet elegant design. This is a case that offers key-coded storage for when you need to get to your guns quickly. And when you don’t need to, its slim profile and beautiful design means it will blend in with most of your furniture.

Making the Decision
While you can’t really go wrong with any members of this roundup, the Stealth Handgun Hanger is my top pick. With this safe, you get excellent construction and space for a growing handgun collection.
You also get both of these in a compact package for a fair price. Make sure you consider how many guns you need to store (and whether you plan on buying more), do you research, and take your time, and you’ll soon find the best budget gun safe for you.
