That's a cool video. Little outta my price range right now, but when I have a house built, I may have them build me a custom one, if I don't just have a whole room custom built

Don't knock golf balls, because they work. Just soft enough to be gentle to the floor, and just solid enough to support a heavy flat bottom safe.

The Zanotti safes come that way and so do the Snap Safes and others. That's what I wish I knew about long ago.

Interesting! I've never seen those before.

I think I finally have my wife convinced to let me make a secret room for my safe and all my ammo. I may even put my loading equipment in there and have a "man cave" away from distractions to reload.

I was fortunate enough to use a pallet jack to get mine in and in place. I even built a raised platform to set the safe on for future pallet jack usage. You can also rent a heavy furniture dolly to move it around.

However I had plenty of manpower to help, so $150.00 bucks to have it brought in and set in place by the movers is cheap....

LOL, without distractions, my ass! Is is going to be a secret from your wife, too? Seriously, remember, the bigger the secret room, the easier it will be to find it. Unless you have a stupendously huge mansion, and unlimited $$$.....

Distractions from TV and kids. No mansion just 3000 square feet.

Well, 3000 Sq' is still bigger than our house, which is still too big for us.

Just the wife & I. Right now repairs & maintenance is costing us way too much. 4 bedrooms, all big. Ridiculously large master bedroom & bath. To all the people that think this sounds awesome, consider the costs VERY carefully. It sucks being cramped, and also sucks having way too many square feet.
