    I got a similar safe from Dick's Sporting goods. It's a Sentry, so it doesn't quite have the name, but it appeared to have similar ratings, but no electric lock, which i'm ok with.

    got it for around $600. 28 guns or something like that.

    I have a browning sterling 47cf safe. For $1500 - $2000 you can get a pretty decent safe. I bought mine used for $1000 a long time ago. Price of steel is only going to go up which really affects the price of safes.

    Check out craigslist for used safes. You got to hire somebody to pick it up and deliver it. Don't try to do it yourself unless you got the specialized dolly and a lift gate truck. Those bitches are fucking heavy.

    I figure for $679 now I can prevent the average burglar/punk from stealing my guns instead of saving up for a $2,000 safe which I'll probably never pull the trigger on.

    It's cool you can always get a bigger safe later. I'd like to get a 2nd safe myself.

    So I finally unwrapped and moved the safe out of my garage to the second story today. It was a bitch getting it up there and the three of us could barely do it. Anyway, the safe is pretty damn good for only $679. You can definitely tell it's a bargain safe with the cheap press wood interior and thin carpet stapled in it but I'm happy I have something to protect the guns now. The outside looks good and I like the electronic lock. :wiggle:
