    Well, she finally arrived and I and Glasshartt are the proud parents of a new Centurion Gun Safe and she is beautiful. We have been waiting for her to arrive and she is finally here. Here are a few baby pictures of our new addition.

    sscubie looks like you already need another one.

    Mine is over full and I am thinking of adding a stack on cabinet to lock the ammo in so I can put more guns in the safe.

    That is a wonderful additional to the family. I know that I was MUCH happier once I got a good, rock solid safe on the residence.

    That is a seriously thick door you have on there. Excellent choice. Shot Show Special?

    Actually,, no

    Believe it or not it came from Sams Club. It is a rated for 62,000 BTU fire protection for 30 minutes at 1,200 to 1,400 degrees. It has 5 1 inch security locking bolts and anti-drill triple hard plate. It also has lifetime warranty free replacement on fire and attempted break-in. The safe was $688 so I think I got a good deal.

    520 pounds, used a forklift to put in the truck and a friend brought his forklift to the house to unload it, then 3 of us manhandled it into place.

    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. ;)

    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.
