Are you going to anchor it into the floor? The reason I ask is because I need one, too, but don't want to anchor it to the floor where I am. At 520 lbs., it's hard to think anyone could get away with it, anchored or not!

Lon,

It has the capability to be anchored to the floor but I don't think I will. Believe me 520 lbs is way too much for one or even two men to move and I don't think they could lift it into a car or truck and sure as hell won't carry it down the road. I really like this one. It also has a master code lock but you can put up to 9 additional individual user codes also so each member of the family can have their own combination.

Guys - The reason for anchoring it to the floor isn't so someone can't lift it up and steal the whole thing.

You might want to watch this: 1:44 seconds that will change your view of gun safes.

Thanks JD good information. I'm a little surprised at how easy they were able to tip that safe over, it looks like it didn't weigh very much. I may have to re-consider anchoring her.

Scubie, that is the problem with rectangular, upright safes. They may weigh "X", but they have a small footprint.

Granted, the safe in the video was probably empty, since there was no need to show the damage to contents, but being close to 5.5 or 6 feet high, it would not take much. Once on it's back, it's going to be much easier to stab and pry.

That is why I bought a seriously heavy model and it is anchored to the concrete in four places. I don't even think Benning's Loins of Power could move that big bastard.

No problem brother! Glad to help. Kudos to you for getting a good safe for responsible gun ownership.

Congrats on the addition to the family. I'd (and did) anchor it to the floor at least-even better anchored to the floor AND wall.
