If you have a couple of revolvers, an SKS, a couple of shotguns, and some rimfires from your youth, will that really be your biggest concern in the event of a burglary? MAYBE, upgrading your insurance and getting a decent gun cabinet would be enough until your collection becomes larger or more enviable or the neighborhood goes downhill.
When I get my long term safe, fire protection will be of greater concern than security. Any safe over $500 will stop an intruder who just happens on a safe during a theft. The video of the guys breaking a safe in 30 seconds or whatever is real but those guys brought a few specific tools with them and they knew what they were doing, most criminals do not. I don't have a safe deposit box at a bank and important documents will be one of the main items I store in the safe. Right now I have those in a small fireproof box that will likely survive a housefire but could be cracked with a dremel tool.

The last concern will be looks, if I'm spending $2k on a safe I want it to look cool.
