You need several layers of security. Lighting and fences for the outer perimeter. Good locks and enhanced striker plates for the inner perimeter. Lockable storage for the final layer. Each layer should deter and slow an intruder, buying time for you, the neighbors or the police to respond
StackOn also makes safes. I own a StackOn cabinet, i like it...

I like my stack on cabinet. But I use it mainly to keep the kiddies out. On the Christmas list is a legit safe that will be bolted down in te basement.

I like the Homak gun cabinets a lot better than the Stack-on brand. Check their website.

If your house or building catches fire and there's a safe upstairs, it could crash through the floor and kill a firefighter real quick.

I have a short Stack-on mounted on a bench loaded with ammo. My Liberty safe houses the firearms and both work well for those purposes. Any professional crook can get into any safe if they are headstrong intent on getting the contents. The safe only provides a delay and the better the quality of the safe, the longer the delay.

I have a Stack-On 14 gun key lock cabinet, cost about 100 bucks and I have been pretty happy with it for the 2.5 years I have owned it. I know it's not a safe and anyone could pop it open with a crow bar, but it keeps my kids out and that's all I needed it for.

The Stack On gun cabinet is just that...a cabinet for storing guns. It's not a safe, not advertised as a safe and Stack On doesn't claim it's a safe. There are people who aren't happy unless they are complaining. Pissing and moaning about this reminds me of a guy who bragged about finding a great home for a great price near the airport. Now he complains about the noise.

I own a Stack On safe. Seems to be a pretty good little safe. I also looked at the Stack On cabinet. Now that is a cheap cabinet. Costs about a $100.00 but the safe was considerably more and quite heavy for its size. As soon as money is available I will be getting a larger and more substantial safe for the panic room.
