Gun Safe

I've been doing some online shopping for a gun safe. I'll probably buy from some place that I can actually touch the safe and see it but I was curious about what others have bought and whether they like them or not.

One thing I'm noticing is that the mfg's claim of 40 guns isn't very convincing when the picture on the site shows 8 or 9 guns stuffed in a box with not much room left because of all of the other crappage that they throw in there. Are they saying 30 pistols and 10 rifles? Seems kind of like false advertising to me. If I buy a 40 gun safe it needs to hold 40 long guns not a couple of long guns with a pile of pistols thrown in the floor

    Before you laugh, check it out if you have one in your area

    Our local Tractor Supply store has a lot of Canon Safes and prices that cannot be beat.

    Well hell... I hadn't even thought about Tractor Supply... that place rocks... but I hate going there. I always find something I "need"

    I don't know where a Costco is around here. We do good to have a Walmart... The nearest Tractor Supply is 90 miles away but so is everything else.

    Thanks!

    I've got a 22"x36"x60" Cannon. It has 32 "slots" for long guns, in reality it holds a few more than half that comfortably. I have no complaints about it or the price.

    That's the kind of answer that I need right there. Thanks!

    Cannon's Patriot Series actually gives you a low to high number on the capacity of guns for example 6-12 guns. Mind ya safes are heavy-I was ok on a concrete slab but, a friend of mine bought one and lives in an elevated wood frame floor house and had to reinforce the floor joists underneath not to mention getting up 5 wooden steps.
