Or do what I do and just don't buy any jewelery. I love being married to a woman that would rather have a new shotgun than a new ring. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

How on earth did you manage that!? I would give anything to come across such a woman. I've actually lost girlfriends over firearm purchases. "You'd rather buy this rifle than me a necklace?!"

They don't last long after that [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I have a cheapie 2 door Stack-On from Gander for $230.00, but I bought it because it wasnt several hundred lbs. Its serving its purpose until I buy a nice one. And when I do, I'll be heading to this thread and read thru it again for ideas. Thanks in advance.

Re: Which safe to buy

4ky, you're a wealth of knowledge!!! Excellant info. It made me run right out to my gun safe and see if it has the appropriate numbers. My safe is an oooooold Mosler Safe Co. unit built for the U.S. Airforce / Army. It's 76" by 51"by 36"deep w/ double doors. Underwriters Lab. tag says, class A fire rated and T20 burglary rated. The Mosler tag says Spec F1-D and SMNA rating 4 hr. It has 11 bolts. From your post It should be OK as a gun safe.(I think) All this info was painted over, but the steel wool fixed it right up. The inside is OD green so I always figured it was surplus. Anyway,if you see something in these numbers that might be of interest let me know. Thanks again O 4ked one.----7mmrhb

Re: Which safe to buy

I sure like my Fort Knox Titan. It has 20 1-1/2" live locking lugs. The body is 3/16" with an inner box of 10 guage steel making it a safe in a safe. It weighs 1,848 pounds and is fire rated to 1680 degrees for 90 minutes. I like the electronic lock because I can get into it in 3 seconds. I can program up to ten combos so I can give someone temporary access and then delete their code. It has a dehumidifier and a rope light in there so it stays right at 75 degrees in there all the time. It also has a full lifetime warranty including paint. The lock holds two 9 volts so I never have to worry about a dead lock. I just change them when the time changes. I'm sure they will last a couple years with normal use. If I did it again I would have got the stainless option on the inner box. That would make it even more torch proof.

Re: Which safe to buy

I recently got a power deal on a Liberty Franklin edition. It was a great deal and a good starting point. It is a 50 gun safe and I quickly realized how fast space disappears. This model is fire rated and has the S&G combo lock. It weighs 1200 pounds and is enough to hopefully stay home for awhile.

Thanks 4ked, it is nice to have a locksmith around, love the tagline too.

My first post. I just had to comment on this Mosler. A 3/8" drill 3 inches left of the dial, punch and hammer. Opens in 3-4 minutes. I'm not a thief but had a near identical safe. I think the feds bought them in bulk.
