I had thought of this befor so when I do get a safe I plan on taking some long hard bolts and some flat bar and bolting it down. This way you would have to pull the floor joist up with the safe .This will only if your foundation is high enough crawl under.

Ps make sure the safe that you get has the 1'' round bars in in the top bottom and across from the hinges the reason for this is so if someone were to grind the hinges off the 3 position 1'' lock bars will still have your safe locked. Some folks don't like safes that have the hinges exsposed but it really don't matter as long as you have one that locks like I've mentioned above.

Re: Gun Safe

They got in the bottom of the safe...did the premise alarm system go off? Just curious how many folks have gun safes but, have no alarm system installed and working on the premises? PS-I don't sell alarm systems...not trying to sell one...Just curious...I mean assuming there were no FDIC would you put your money in a bank that had no alarm system but looked at ya and said but, we got a safe.

Take a 1/4" steel plate the same size as the bottom of your safe or at least wide enough to grap 3 floor joist below and bolt through steel plate with threaded rods (the thicker the better> Now if they try to tip it over then they'll have to snap 3 floor joists which on the vertical isn't easy. I also agree bolting to the wall is a good idea. The key is anything you can do to make it more difficult and slow them down works in your favor.
