I got in on sale from a local U.S Safe dealer that only sells Cannon for $999. It's a 48 gun safe. It's the Cannon S-33. Not sure of the dimensions,

If you only want something cheap, temporary, and just for your handgun(s) I recommend a bedside gun safe. You can usually find them at LGS' for around $100. It will keep your handguns locked away until you start buying rifles and whatnot and might need a bigger safe.

I'm jealous of your safe, but in my reading I've come across some good advice. If you move your safe against the other wall, they won't be able to pry it open without moving it, because the door will open right next to the wall. Be sure and bolt it to the floor so they can't move it easily. (I see you did already)

OP - I would get that small pistol safe for easy access to your HD pistol. I have 3 pistols in my safe with a simplex lock. I also keep keys to gun locks and storage cabinet locks for important papers and ammo in my pistol safe. Small safes are cheap and will give you time to save for a bigger, more secure safe.

Something like this would work well for a couple guns/mags and still have quick access if you use your gun for home defense. Be sure and bolt down any small handgun safe you buy.

what are you looking to spend on a safe ?
that should be the first Question you ask yourself.

Since my home is secure I opted for a gun cabinet as opposed to a safe. This will keep all my guns out of sight and out of mind of and kids and keeps them all together and a good place to stick my ammo. It cost me $180. I think for now its all I need and if I ever decide to upgrade or that I need a true safe, I only spent $180 for it and it can easily be retrofitted as a typical locking cabinet.

I have similar cabinet similar to the above, it says it is a 10 gun cabinet, I say BS! Purehavoc is right, they are "rated" to hold way more than they actually do. Unless you just dump them in. I have 6 long guns and they do not fit in there the way I'd like them to.

Mine is a convertible 9/18 long gun cabinet. I chose to split it to increase shelf space and as it stands will hold 5 long guns. I could probably add another rack along the rear of the cabinet but man it would get tight. I like the way I got it set up though and it should do fine for me as, for now, I only plan on 2 more log guns; a 10/22 and 12 ga shotgun.
