liberty safes are not safes they are lockable containers. the price you pay for the top of the line liberty is about where a real safe that might hold a rifle or two starts. dont confuse the two. the crap that you see on liberty's sight is pure BS.
all that being said i have a liberty "safe" timberline which is the gander mountain version. i didnt buy it as a safe thinking my firearms were secure from a knowledgable determined thief. or would be safe from a fire. i bought it to deter some neighbrhood kid making off with my guns. by the time some idiot manged to peel it open either my wife or myself would return. one or the other of us is almost always at home. i bought it to keep my firearms in a low dust lower humidity environment.
just be sure your buying it for the right reason.
someday i may reinforce it with a 1/2 inch steel plate shell since i know how to weld and turn into an actual safe.
i really like it for what it is. it is very nice quality piece. i recomend it for the price point.
my timberline is basically a fatboy 64 with a slightly better interior layout at a better price. here is mine:
