I have one and use it on all of my tools...sorry...firearms except for the 590, which is unloaded and trigger locked beside the bed. The key stays on my key ring just because my neices and nephews frequently visit my place and I dont want them to become a statistic!

Same here, as a matter of fact, I actually used a tow truck to move both of mine. I transported the safes (one at a time) with an F-350 wrecker. I got some strange looks by some other drivers when I was driving along with it hanging from the boom. Then I used a 40 ton heavy-duty wrecker to hoist one up to the second floor, not so much for the weight but for the reach needed to get it there. BTW, I work for a tow company

>>>In NJ gun safes are tax-exempt.


Same here in Mass., no sales tax on GUN safes. On all other safes the 5% sales tax applies (unless you tell them you plan to keep a gun in it, wink wink) It's one of the few concessions the state made to gun owners after passing a law making it mandatory to keep your guns locked up. Personally I feel it would do society far more good to keep CRIMINALS locked up instead. But even without the law, there's nothing stopping one from buying the safe in N.H. where there is no sales tax on anything anyway...........

I use the Liberty Lincoln Series safes, bolted to the floor. I use one for guns and the other for magazines and everything else . I have other smaller safes than I use for my high end defensive ammunition.

I think a safe is the best gun money you can spend. Even a "small" gun collection becomes "big" money very fast. If your collection is over $5k you are suppose to declare it to your homeowners insurance so they can raise your rates. Buy a safe and be safe. Fire and thieves happen!!!!

as of now I don't use a gun safe and the only reason I don't have one is because I don't have a house but I am in the process of changing that very shortly

I'm not always home to defend my property. That's when I count on my safe to do it's job and keep my beloved guns safe from fire and especially burglars. Also, I have a small child at home that is extremely well trained not to touch firearms when an adult isn't with him, but I'm not taking ANY chances when it comes to his safety.
