We were looking for a storage solution for my guns and didn’t really want a big heavy safe so I did some searching online and in the end narrowed it down to two choices. It was between a Vaultek (either the RS200i or the RS500i - basically two sizes of the same safe) and the SecureIt Agile Ultralight.
We wanted to be able to store the guns in the upstairs of the house, but have the flexibility to move the placement easily if we ever wanted to. So we were looking for a lighter / less secure solution than a traditional safe.
Neither of the options are anywhere near cheap for what they are, but one thing I did really like about both of them is that they allow for a great deal of customization for configuring the storage inside.
I personally prefer the modularity and aesthetics of the Vaultek, but it does come with a premium price tag. The RS500i is the larger version and is supposed to be able to accommodate five long guns and numerous pistols / accessories with the RS200i able to store two long guns.
The RS200i has a small footprint and as I have it configured it would be challenging to fit two long guns. That being said, my Ruger PCC has a scope, light, bipod, compensator and sling attached to it that add considerably to it’s bulk.
When purchasing the unit, I took time looking at all the accessories and had planned out ahead of time the basic layout I wanted to try and achieve. It did take some time moving everything around to come up with the current “end” result.
As it is, it would be challenging to add another firearm of any variety to it without seriously changing the layout and requiring additional storage accessories.
It was fairly easy to set up and it is more than secure enough for my needs / wants. I am very happy with the flexibility in both placement ( weight and overall footprint) and configurability ( through the purchase of additional accessories not included in the stock package ).
You are certainly paying a premium price for it, and to be honest that’s why in the end I stuck with the smaller / cheaper model. There certainly would have been room for me to expand into and have a wider variety of configuration options with the larger RS500i, but at most I will be adding one additional firearm and I already know how I would be able to accommodate that in regards to storage.
I do also like the technical aspects of it and it is something my wife is comfortable with being inside our home and using. And yes, wife acceptance is a big factor.
Overall I am very happy with my choice although the price is certainly steep.
