    Wanting economical safe recommendations

    It will initially be home to 2 rifles and 2 pistols, but that may double at some point. I don't yet have a budget carved out, but I know I won't be getting a $5k model big enough to sleep in.

    thx

    I say to buy the largest and best quality vault that you can possibly afford. That way you won't "out-grow" it and need to buy another one later on.

    I bought the Liberty Safe made for 50 guns. I have outgrown it faster than I thought I would. Mostly with just guns but a few other things like old knives and other things have found home in there also.

    For the most part with safes, you are going to get what you pay for. I know you don't know your budget. But how secure do you want it to be? How much fireprotection? How large? You will pay for each one of these items with increasing levels of security, fireprotection and size. If you want something to deter 99% of theives, nearly anything will do. How many times to you want to buy safes? As noted above you will outgrow it. I purchased a Champion because the prices being offered were at a considerable discount to other leading brands for the same or higher security and fire protection ratings as well as size. But I woudn't say the were inexpensive just a good deal.

    My safe is a Cannon. I like it because it has a traditional dial instead of a keypad. It also has internal hinges, always get internal hinges, they're more secure. Also, be sure to get a safe that's fire rated.

    I hate to be the cruel hand of reality slapping you across the face but, someone has to do it.

    Dick's Sporting Goods had a couple 24-28 gun safes by Stackon that were on sale for a while for under 600$. They were fire proof and water proof and came with a dial instead of a digital keypad.

    Hey Pitt, Vance's Shooter's Supply is having a pretty good sale on safes and on firearms for that matter.

    Google them and download the sales flyer. Have you been to Vance's? It's in an area where you want to lock your car while going down the street and concealed carry. If you are on the east side of town head out to Buckeye Outdoor in Hebron (or is it Heath?) it's at the 79 exit off of 70, they are owned by Vance's and have the same prices and you may not get robbed while in the neighborhood.
