    I spent about an hour looking at Walmart, Academy, Gander mountain and Amazon.
    Looking for least expensive means to lock up firearms from grandkids and invading persons. Most would keep out grandkids but nobody else. Can't spend $500-2000 on safe, but the metal cabinets don't tell you how easy to break in. Somebody point me to least expensive that will do the job.

    You could put a deadbolt on a closet door.

    I spent under $500 for mine at SAMs Club. Got some some good (real good) concrete anchors from the carpenter at work and hammerdrilled them into my floor. It is heavy and anchored down. Its a 14 gun safe about 1/2 hour fire rating. I put ammo in there also. Bad guys aren't going to spend a lot of time and effort trying to get in your safe when they break in. They are probably going for the jewelry and easier valuables, and then get out fast.

    You don't say if it's handguns or rifles, and how many you have to lock up.

    For between $400-500, I would suggest this one if you have a few rifles.

    Here's a previous post I did regarding handguns:
