Gun Safes
 
I'm gonna be in the market for a gun safe soon, I'm mostly looking for fire protection and protections from your average idiot thief, in my area we don't have too many professional safe crackers going house to house to steal stuff. What brands do you guys/gals prefer? I would like to stick with made in USA also.

I have looked at Cannon, Liberty, Winchester and Browning safes.

Cannon is probably what i will purchase but Liberty is running a close second.

I have a Sentry non-fire rated safe at the moment and it has served me well the past decade+.

I was checking out the Liberty website also, now I will check out Cannon, thanks.

Here's one similar to mine...

http://www.championsafe.com/products_model-t.html

I think it was around $800 delivered...and INSTALLED <--(key word right there) I'm totally happy with it.

Most places around here say they deliver which is to say the drop it on your property, good luck humpin 500 pounds of safe into position...:eek:...so unless you know you can do it yourself, make sure the word "installed" is mentioned. It took 4 guys to get mine up 5 stairs and into place, they set up the shelving, handles and made sure I knew how to work the lock.

These guys seem to have some good safes. http://www.ableammo.com/catalog/safes-vaults-fire-safes-personal-safes-safe-accessories-sale-online-c-221.html or here http://www.acsafes.com/

I bought a Stack On from Menards when I was first looking. It's doing the trick but I'll be looking for a bigger/better before much longer.

I've had a Liberty for 8 years now with no problems and I believe the've got the best warranty out there. No only do they replace your safe if it's damaged by a burglar. They cover the contents if it's successfully breached.

Can't beat that with a stick.

Canon has a similar warranty. This is what has these two in the lead with me. The only difference between the two that has Cannon in the lead is the factory installed power point. Liberty offers the feature but at an extra cost to purchase and have installed by the dealer.

Browning, Winchesters and others all have "limited" warranties.

FYI

If you place your safe on concrete make sure you've got an Impermiable rubber mat between the floor and the steel. Concrete slabs take about 100 years to fully cure and the moisture off gassing WILL rust out the bottom of a safe.

Cannon is the way to go if you want to have security cameras networked with the PC protected inside. IMHO

We (Trip and I) were just having this discussion over on another thread about WHY one would want an ethernet and usb port along with power oulet in the safe.

Again, this is why Cannon is leading in my considerations of which brand to purchase.
