Gun vaults?

If you had $750-$1500 to spend on a gun safe which one would you go with and why?

Im looking for something in the 25-30 gun category, around 450-700 llbs range...the Fort knox vaults look solid but may be out of my budget range depending on their prices when they reply back to me. Any others like AmSec, Liberty, browning?

I have a Liberty (Chinese series) from Coastal farm, Its a 56 gun, they can be had regularly for under 1K. I have nothing bad to say about it for the money.

Two Treadlocks, E lock. Sixteen long gun plus shelves. About 15 years no problems. Recently bought a Browning, silver I think, disappointed. Works well if the long gun has no scope, otherwise they don't fit!! Missed that in the literature,:-(

Re: Gun vaults?

Two key issues when it comes to gun safes.

1. Needs to be heavy enough to deter someone from just picking up the entire things and ripping it open at home at their leisure.

2. You are more likely to be a victim of fire than theft. So make sure you get a safe that is rated for 1 hour at house fire temp.

Remember, safes are rated like tents and rafts.... If you get a 50 gun it might hold 35 mixed collection. Even fewer if your into primarily precision type guns (scoped, oversized).
