    Im looking into buying a Ft. Knox safe. But don't know what deals are out there. These just seem to really appeal to me.

    I steered away from digital- digital can fail. I picked up a decent good sized safe from Bi-mart on sale for just under $300 I believe.

    You're not going to have much of a choice in that price range, and I doubt you'll find one with an electronic lock at all.

    You'll pretty much be limited to a low-end Sentry or Stack-On. The cheapest electronic WalMart has listed is $429. You might get lucky and find something on clearance somewhere.

    I think it was Vettefan that found a cheap one at his Walmart w/ an electronic key pad. Not sure if the op is in GA though.

    Got my Sentry from walmart for 350. It's the larger 24 gun safe with electronic keypad. I put it on layaway near the end of the winter/hunting season and they put it on clearence about a month later. So, even though I had already paid on it I got the lower price once it dropped.

    I saw a sentry gunsafe this past weekend at cabelas that had the top locking lugs bent from some idiot trying to close it while they were in the locked out position. I wouldn't expect a safe to bend the freaking locking lugs. I think sentry is on the very bottom of the stack when it comes to quality of gunsafes. But in defense anything is better than just a closet.

    Owning a Sentry I would agree with this. When mine is closed and locked there is a little play if you grab the handle and try and open the door.
    I bought mine only because I want to keep my kids out of it. T he way I see it, if a thief breaks in my house, I'd rather they get what they want and get out. PLus I have insurance on everything so it will be replaced.
