    I own one, 32 gun I believe.

    It is nice and does the job. No stories of thwarted attempts...but that is good.
    No problems with lock or mechanism and the hinges are smooth.
    I bought the hanging door pistol storage accessory and it helped find a place for more of the collection.

    I've got the 24gun safe, and the only thing I don't like about it is there are no locking bolts on the hinge side of the door. I've never had any break in attempts either,so it would be more for my peace of mind.

    I just bought a safe. I decided on a Winchester 28 gun safe from tractor supply (699.00). I looked at the Canyon. Reason for not liking it was the door. It obstructed over 4" of entry from the right side, due to being an internal hinge assembly. I'm sure if I got a larger safe it wouldn't have been an issue.
    But lifetime warranty and 4 sided locking mechanism on the Winchester was a selling point for me.

    Purchased mine from TS as well. Believe it was $550 4 years ago.

    If money were no option I would get a Pendleton revolving safe!

    I like the liberty it has a lifetime warranty and if it ever gets destroyed in a house fire or broke into they replace them for free and its american made Utah I believe

    What kind of price/size are you looking at on the Canon? In my non-expert opinion it's only fair to compare similarly priced/sized safes against each other.

    Basically here is where I stand, im looking to spend under 1000, I only have 6 long guns and three handguns at this time, but looking to get more eventually. I build each of my rifles from the ground up, so needless to say it wont be filled with a bunch of " daddys old shotguns" definitely looking for something to fit atleast 12 long guns comfortably, with storage for ammo etc.

    You should go to academy sports and personally check them out they usually have the best prices. They have cannon and a couple different brands as well.

    Just to throw this out there. Buy one bigger than you want without going over budget. most people that buy like a 12 or 24 gun always wind up sayin I wish I bought a bigger safe.

    That's true.
    My 28 gun safe with 4 handgun holsters in the door still probably only holds 6-8 long guns depending on whether or not pistol grips or magazines in them. The other side has shelves that could be removed for more long guns, but then it would primarily because a Gun safe only. Limited room for magazines, ammunition, holsters, etc.
    But I knew this going in and will suffice for my needs.

    Most of my rifles are bulky, so im thinking a 24 gun safe. Keep what I have sitting comfortably, with a little more room for a few more projects

    I personally would recommend a liberty Fatboy jr it's a 48 gun safe and u can add a door rack later if you need to and they are rated for 1200 or 1400 degrees for 45min and they were 999.00 at lowes
