Hey tw, I to am researching gun safes. I saw the line of liberty safes at a safe & locksmiths shop in memphis. I saw nothing for that cheap. The one we were looking at is the colonial 30 with a 45 minute fire rating. It cost 1500.00 but seems alot better quality than the redheads & brownings we looked at bass pro. I'm torn, I live in town with good fire dept response. In a cul de sac with good niehbors that look after each other. I could rationalize a cheaper safe very easy and still might. I too would like some input from others about these safes.
