Just bought my cannon 48 gun safe from TSC this year. I was just going to get the 24 gun for $599 but decided to go big or stay home...happy with my choice. I then sold my old Sentry safe for $500 to make up the difference.
I would suggest just biting the bullet and getting the Liberty or the Cannon fire proof. It hurts, but after your budget recovers in a couple of months you will be VERY glad you took the blow.
Sentry makes a solid safe for the money. I was VERY satisfied with mine for the years i had it. You can get a decent sized one new in $350-$400 range.
I only upgraded because I watched 5 houses in the neighborhood burn this past winter and i have more than one heirloom gun from my grandfathers and dad. So i finally pulled the trigger on the Fire and flood proof safe i originally wanted but couldnt afford. As hard as it hit my budget, as bad as it hurt to shell out that kinda coin, i am happy I did. Its a one time hurt. I wont ever have to buy another safe again.
(unless i somehow get uber rich and go on a gun buying spree)
