Re: Gun Safe

lovdasnow,

The gun safes that were built in Eugene are no longer available. The design was sold to a national manufacturer.

Re: Gun Safe

Check out Fort Knox. The are UL listed for fire and have a model and size (almost) for every budget. I bought a 1900 pound Titan and it had free freight and installation. The dealer said he would move it for no charge if I ever move. No chance. If I ever move I'm getting a non-catologed custom built. It didn't take long to outgrow my 72"x41".

Re: Gun Safe

been looking at the fort knox safes. thanks for the info, thats good to hear.

did you go through a local dealer? and any recommendations after outgrowing your safe? are there options you wish you would have gotten.

I want the keypad, and other than that I don't really know.

Re: Gun Safe

Easton19 , here's a Merry Christmas Tip . Want to put more guns in your Safe ??? It won't look nice and you will have to make an ID Map for yourself . Rip out ALL the row racks . Put the guns in soft but reasonably thick soft cases .....and PACK them in . Make a map of what is where . Happy cramming ! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Gun Safe

I have a Liberty Safe with the S&G lock and fireproof.
The thought of rolling 700 lbs of safe across the oak floor prompted me to have a professional do it. I hired a local mover to move if from the garage into the house. The $80.00 cost was well worth it.

Re: Gun Safe

Fort Knox has a dealer locater on their page. They are class acts. Give them a call. You will be surprised how easy they are to deal with. I haven't outgrown mine but a lot of other valubles seem to find their way in there. The only thing I didn't get that I wish I did was the lighting package that comes on when you open the door. I love the electronic lock. I can have that door open in 5 seconds if I want to.
