Lon, I checked my invoice and it was $2800 for the safe I got. Granted, I got a bigger one than I needed, but that was kind of the idea.

I'll take a couple of photos later and post them up so you can see how thick the door is on this beast. It's pretty reassuring.

JD

Get a used cardboard box.

I can let you have these two for $1200.

No telling WHERE the guy in the second box has been. No, I'll go with NEW boxes, thank you very much.

I was thinking more in terms of CUBIC feet as opposed to SQUARE feet!

check with local gunsmiths and dealers. I picked up a used 24 gun Big Horn with a 1 hour fire rating for 600 less than half what it retailed for and its in good shape

That wasn't/isn't Charleton Heston's. It's frequently attributed to him, but it actually belonged to some lawyer of the commonwealth in the N.E. that had a REAL passion for firearms.

His collection fetched one of the highest auction prices for firearms EVER in the history of auctions.

What are you thoughts on general temperature and humidity changes experienced in the garage? I don't think temp would do much but humidity might. Would those little dehumidifiers work well enough inside one of those safes?

Thanks

Lon, I apologize, I might have given you sticker shock for no reason.

I didn't get the Cascade, I got the Denali edition, which is why the price was so much higher.

I stepped up when I found out about the warranty coverage. The fire coverage is higher than I thought as well, but I didn't shop for that feature, I was looking for protection and the warranty sold me on this model.

I had totally forgot about that until I opened the safe and started looking through the paperwork.

Anyways, here are a few shots of the safe I got and the massive door that protects my stuff.

Shot 4 is the bottom of the safe, where the door swings and meets the safe itself. The other shots are of the door itself.
