How much money are you wanting to spend? That will be the deciding factor on where you want to shop.

gun safes are hardly a thing to scrimp on if you are really serious about protecting things. The cheap ones that go on sale are very easily broken into by people who know what they are doing. Also, the cheaper ones will not have the fire resistance the more expensive ones will.

Budget is key here. If you are looking to spend 500 bucks on a safe (which is really nothing more than a gun locker with a combination), then just wait for the next sale and buy. If you are looking for a real safe, then you won't find those on sale much. So just depends what you are looking for.

Not trying to be rude, just stating facts about safes.


One other thing, buy twice as big as you think you will need.

He's right AND you could find a decent used one if you watch the internet but, they sell really fast.

Not all safes are created equal. There are major name brand safes that are Chinese made selling in big box stores. Not sure your location but I searched for a long time before buying mine.

I did NOT go thru his entire website.... calling Winchester and Cannon quality? I'd like to see his definition of the word.

I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the brands listed above. Quality safes start at about 10k and can cost more than a new car.

Any gun safe is better than none. At least one may slow the bad guys down for a while. How much did your safe cost and what brand?
