Default New SentrySafe

Partly due to the rather large pre-election shopping spree I did, I decided it was time to get a safe.

I found this fire-rated (30 minutes) spinner model at a nearby Home Depot. It was $699 (about $745 with tax) and it cost me about $150 to get it delivered. The quality of the shelving leaves something to be desired, but other than that, I really like it. Well, it wasn't really the shelving that was the problem, it was the gray felt covering. I went through a tube of SuperGlue regluing it to the shelves before I installed them.

It weighs just over 400 pounds. Brand is SentrySafe, model is GS2459C. It is supposed to hold 24 guns; it might, but some of them would have to be pistols. Height - 59.1", Depth - 24.2", Width 28.3", no by-pass key.

It has pre-drilled holes and hardware for securing it to the floor, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

I would secure it to the floor ASAP. Once you put your stuff in the safe you might never do it.

You can use common rivets or panhead screws to secure the shelving. The shelving system sucks in all Sentry products. Tractor supply sells sentry products. They are popular in this area. The manager at the local tractor supply calls me to secure the shelving at the customers request. Lots of people just don't know the tricks of making sheet metal work. The big trick is using a pair of C-clamps to hold the shelves while you drill or screw them.
