One reason I did it was - this last spring (Okie here) we had one of them tar tornaders heading straight fer us. So in a panic I stuffed the safe full of shoot'n shirts and the such and run a HD ratchet strap around its girth. If, it missed us, had got us and survived the tossing around, I think for the most part every thing would have survived without too much damage. However, as I dug out my shirts after nader season - they were oil stained and I had to take the honey to Mahogany's Steakhouse to convince her to get the stains out.
