I believe that is a law abiding citizen taking the law and adding humor to it.

I use true UL listed business safes as gun safes. My largest one, two people can get in and the two doors would close. It is made to just barely clear most business sized doors, occasionally it does not fit and molding or door closers have to be removed. I found it out back behind a locksmith shop. I asked the owner if he had any really large safes for sale, he directed me to look out back.

It took me a a long to get all the water out of it. I ran box fans inside 24/7 to heat the safe, and create a wind. Water dripped out of it for months, the cement type filling had soaked up with water.

It weighs about 4,000 pounds empty. It is wide enough, shorter long guns display sideways.

I also have a handgun safe, and an ammo safe.

AR10, did you at least get the thing of free? I hope so. Having a waterlogged metal box can't be good for it's longevity......it does look cool, though. Custom paint job?

I found someone in the area that made safe rooms and doors. The gray heavy duty cabinet in the pic used to be my gun safe. Now its my ammo locker. The dehumidifer keeps the humidity at around 20% and the heater keeps the temp around 75 degrees. Some where around $4500 total invested. Well worth it for the piece of mind. If I need to use it as a safe room I can lock the door from the inside and then all I have to do is open a hatch and pull a pin to pull the bolts back to get out. Also the door opens to the inside so if theres a tornado, rubble can't keep me from opening the door. That may have been more information than anyone wanted.
Wow!!! In love!!!!

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.
