Gun Safes

So i'm starting to look for a fire rated gun safe for, obviously guns but also important documents and personal belongings. the ones im looking at are around the 24 gun size and around $1000. just wandering what people here have and pros/cons on different safes. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Bighorn 1200/70 minute. Much less than a Liberty of the same fire protection level.

Buy one bigger than you need, it'll fill up quicker than you think, I know mine did. Now, again, I've got guns stashed all over the house, with the safe stuffed to the gills.

thats what i hear. i only have 3 guns at the moment so a 24 gun safe should be plenty dig enough for those and all our important personal stuff for now. i do plan on adding to my gun collection eventually and i wanted a safe that should suit my needs for many years without out growing it.

Call your local 'safe' shop or call the Safe companies in general.... like Liberty, etc.

In terms of breaking into a safe... Watch some Youtube videos. There's some amazing shots of people ripping 'em open on purpose just to show how easy it can be done to some of them.

No safe is fireproof.
The only difference in fire rating is how many sheets of drywall they put in it.
Don't waste money on fire rating.
A trip to Home Depot and $20 will improve 'fire rating' if that's what you're after.
In re security...they only keep the honest people out.
And buy bigger than what you think you need.

after literally MONTHS of debating...and playing with...and more debating...and more research...i bought a Champion Trophy series

http://www.championsafe.com/trophy.html

They tend to run a bit cheaper in price than Liberty and the rumor i've heard from several different sources is the guy who started Champion previously worked for Liberty

I found them to be almost identical in quality with the nod going to champion in the interior...and fire rating to be equal
