EMP/EMF, I would venture to say that 99.99% of the people that break into houses have never heard of electromotive pulses or forces. In my area the burglars tend to attempt to remove the small safes from the houses and in most cases have failed to do so because the safe was either bolted to the floor or was too heavy. I don't have a safe with a key pad, just the old time combination dial.

What is an electromotive pulse or force?

EMP = electro-magnetic pulse. A huge flux of electro-magnetic radiation including X-rays which can be powerful enough to fry electronic equipment like circuit boards. Such an event occurs when a nuclear bomb explodes. Makes you wonder why you'd worry about being able to open your safe...

No it doesn't. They can tune nukes to produce mostly EMP, and they set them off in space, so there is none of the usual nuke drawbacks, just EMP.

I have a Liberty safe and not concerned in least bit about EMP because the safe also came with two keys in case you either forget your password or the power goes out, which would be the case in an EMP attack. I would still have access to every one of my firearms.

EMP. .. whoaaaa I'll leave my safe unlocked so this doesn't happen . . . .

Good point tho'. Maybe I can wrap everything in Tin Foil. ..


But seriously, maybe a Faraday cage would be a good idea.

Yea, but you all live in the USA... I live in Kalifornia where they require a lock with electronic or spin dial only. They also must have 10,000 possibilities in the combination so a back-up key would not be allowed. They also don't allow exposed hinges on the outside.

How do the gang members afford such safes.

A spin dial or standard mechanical combination lock would work fine after EMP, but not as fast or easy as I would like.

Exposed Hinges? . Do the doors have to open in?....

EMP if it were to happen I wont worry about it . I will get the key out . I like quick access to my stuff and combo locks and I arent that friendly .
I can be in my safe in about 3 seconds if I need to be. EMP is so unlikely and its not like it will cover thousands of miles .

Exactly. I do however choose manual locks due to their long term reliability and durability on both my big safe and on my quick access handgun safe (both of which are bolted down).
