I would like to know what some folk's thoughts and experience. What brands do you like? What brands do you avoid? Why? I'm looking for one that holds 20+ guns but not wanting or needing the model that has light saber proof doors, or sharks with laser beams on their heads or comes with a free subscription to a British spy magazine.

Thank you in advance for your help.

I would strongly consider Fort Knox. I have owned one for about 10 years and my only regret, is that I did not buy a bigger one.

Excellent, well built, basically custom and superior protection.

My Liberty has a great fire rating and with the mechanical combination rather than an electronic key pad I don't have to worry about getting locked out of my safe due to a malfunction unless I have a senior moment and forget my combination.

I have two a Browning Gold Medallion and a Winchester Silverado, both with mechanical lock. Both are very well made but the Browning is quite a bit more expensive. For the price the Winchester Silverado is hard to beat and also fireproof.

Watch YouTube videos of guys prying safes open in less than a minute, then choose a brand. Just because it's big, heavy and looks well built means nothing to meth heads...
