After 6 months of looking and research I bought the most safe I could afford. There just is no comparing this safe with box store safes.

Nice safe. I have a question for you, does having the handgun storage on the door mean you have less storage space for rifles? This is something I've wondered about and I have heard from the salespeople but a real world perspective is always helpful.

I looked at that on another brand of safe that was compatable. Maybe a few inches of self space. It was the door panel that got me to upgrade to the Franklin from the Colonial. There is a kit that you can buy for the Colonial that would hang from a rod. There is 8 pistol pouches 4 zippered pouches a net pouch and 20 12 ga individual cartrige hoops. Any loss is more than made up for by the amount of storage on the door panel imo.

Anyone in the market for a safe should start out at a box store then find a locksmith that carries Liberty, Cannon and other American made safes. Another reason to buy from a locksmith that has been in the business, if you ever have a problem, you call the people who can fix it. If you do decide on a Liberty, be sure to google "Liberty promo codes". It saved me 75 at purchase and I mailed off another 75 dollor rebate today.

My favorite is an "American Eagle" by Cannon - - - on sale at Dunams sporting goods about 5 years ago for under $500.00

Fire rated for 1700 degrees for 90 minutes - - - most I looked at were rated for 1200 degrees for 30 minutes.

Weighs in at 750# empty - - - bolted with 2 stainless steel lags bolts 1/2" dia by 6" long into floor joist and 2 stainless steel bolts with self locking nuts in the other 2 holes ( spaced 24" apart and my joist are 16" apart )

I also have 3 quick access Winchester safes in the house - - - not fire rated or very secure ( just bolted to furnature that could be easily broken ) but random people have no access to my firearms but I can put in my code in total darkness and the safes pop open and a light shines inside for 3 seconds and I keep small LED flashlights as well as a handgun at the ready.

I need to get some racks for the handguns to make it less cluttered.
