We put some work into her, drying her out, and cleaning her up. It was a good ten years before I trusted using this safe to hold my guns. Wanted to make sure it was well dried out and not a rust trap. All is good.
Cost me $200 to purchase it, and $100 to move it the first time. I now own the tools to move it myself.
Pictured is 15 rifles, 3 shotgun, a Mares Leg pistol and 7 large ammo cans. I prefer to keep ammo in a different safe, so the only ammo is in the front two AR's, they are ready to go with 51 rounds each.
From left to right, Marlin, 5 Winchesters, Ithaca, Henry, 3 Rugars, Colt, DPMS, WW Hamilton, Russian over under. In front, PWA M4, Olympic CarAR. Above Henry, Mossberg.
I have a Sams Club Winchester safe I keep a few guns in sometimes, it opens up faster than this safe.
