    The talk about safes lately made me start to think that I really do need to get one. Well, as luck would have it, one kind of fell into my lap.


    Background story: Mom owns some real estate. Guy who owes mom some payments, decides to sell some of his stuff to pay Mom said money. Mom informs me that he's got a safe sitting out in his yard for sale, and that he's desperate. Mom says it's a 'Gandy' brand. :)dunno:). I Google 'Gandy', come up short. Take a trip over to desperate guy's house to look at said safe. Look safe over, come to the conclusion that it is indeed, a safe (I know nothing about safes :hsd:). Gander Mtn. brand, and in excellent condition w/ only a minor scuff or two.

    Guy says it's a year old and he wants $300 for it. I decline. Guy says he'll take $250 for it. I decline again, stating that I might be back after I do some research. I return home, attempt to look up said safe with no luck. I come to the conclusion that safe was probably around $500+, new. I return to guys house, offers $200. Guy accepts, and we load up my new safe.

    Guy now returns my money to my mom.

    Austin- newish safe
    Guy- Doesn't get evicted
    Mom- Got her money (guy sold some other stuff).

    Win for all. :wavey:

    Decent price? Stack-Ons were like $120-160ish for a comparable size, though obviously not really a safe.

    I'm not sure I'm going to keep it there. It was just the best hidden spot I could think of without doing any cleaning.

    Austin'll quit with the 3rd person shit. :mamoru:

    Furnace. Like I said, I doubt I'm going to keep it there. I'd like to kind of hide it, and this was the best spot, but I too had doubts about the water heaters and the furnace on either side. Gonna have to find a better spot. But, I'm also not too worried. The minute someone breaks a window, door, or steps foot inside, it's going to set off the alarms. I suppose as long as it's bolted down, they'll never get it open in time before they have to leave.

    I think so, the "beginner safe" I point people to is a 14 gun sentry that lowe's sells. It looks of similar size and construction as that one. In the past its been about $300 on sale the day after thanksgiving, I'd guess the regular price on one these days is closer to $400.

    It's tucked in between the water heaters and the furnace. I'm not really concerned about it right now because as you can see, I've been too lazy to actually put my stuff in it, and we're not exactly running the furnace this time of year.

    It's going to be moved just as soon as I can make up my mind on where I want to put it. I bet it weighs close to 300lb., so I'd only like to move it once.

    I cant tell, but do the lower compartment sections. Can those be removed so it's open?
