I know I know... neither of these are top notch safes, but unfortunately they fit my budget. I only have 3 long guns so.... Ive looked at Cabellas, Bass Pro, Academy, Field & Stream, and Tractor supply, and these are the best 2 in my budget

Input and advice is appreciated.

First one.... http://www.fieldandstreamshop.com/p/fiel...fssprtsmn10gua#

Second one ... https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/winchester-10-gun-granite-safe-with-electronic-lock

Thanks

CW

I choose door #2, Winchester.

edit to add: Because I like keypad entry.

#2. I've had a larger version of the Winchester from TSC for several years now, and it has been solid. Have you researched the "sale" price on the Winchester? It seems TSC discounts many of their safes every-other month.

Either one of those will work. The deadman bolts are the best thing for safes with exposed hinges. I'd lean more towards the Winchester

Just keep in mind that a 10 gun safe will hold about half that many scoped guns. Every manufacturer seems to quote the capacity of their safes in much the same way.

Yep #2 but make sure to bolt it down good. Doesn't do you much good to lock them up if they can roll it right out of your front door on a 2wheel dolly.
