Looking to buy a gun safe


Anywhere to shop in BR area besides BP and Cabelas. I have already seen the ones there. Looking to spend less than a 1000.00.

What size do you want? That's going to be tough.

There is a 24 gun safe at BP for 800.00. I may get that one. Just wondering what other options may be out there

Looking as well. Tractor Supply has a 48 gun Cannon for 999. Cannon 48 gun
The more I keep looking the more I get concerend about the thickness, the about of locking bolts, etc. My price then goes from 1000 to 2500 and up. I know just about any safe can be broken into, but for home use smash and grab, I think most stoe bought safes will be fine.

Get a safe double the size of what you think you need now. Thanks me in a few years.

Yes and no
Buying big but I am not buying so big that it takes up more space than needed. No matter how big you buy, you will out grow it at some point. If that is the case, I will buy a seperate smaller safe for additional guns, or a safe just for overflow such as valuables etc.

Not going too big. Those things take up a LOT of space

Also check with Richie's Pawn and Gun in Picayune, MS. They always advertise on Bayou Shooter and are always getting in "scratch & dent" safes. Last ones I remember them getting were safes that were painted the wrong color for an order that Academy rejected.

$800 - $900 safes they were selling for $450

Give them a call to see what they have. They offer delivery if needed also. Might be worth the drive to Picayune for you if the price is good.

I have been there a few times looking and nothing. No safes and not much of anything else. Their website makes it look like they have all kinds of good stuff.

Just fyi, they don't always have those "scratch & dent" sales but their regular prices are usually a good deal also.

re: Looking to buy a gun safe


The other Safe Thread is anchored. Replying in this thread as well


Still looking and the prices definately vary.
Most residentual home safes are the big brand bought from the big box stores. like Cannon, Liberty, Browning, winchester, etc. These all vary in size, weight, capacity, fire rating, locking bolts, but all seen to be the same on steel thickness of 12 ga. Anything with beefed up locking bolts on all four sides and a steel thickness of 10 ga or thicker then steps you up into the higher end model safes such as Fort Knox, etc.
So the safes I am looking at all have 12 ga thickness, a height of 60-72 inches, holds 48 guns, 30-45 fire rating and a price range from 1000-1800. These vary in locking bolts. 2-3 sides at most is what I see on locking bolts. The weight of most of these as well is between 600-700 lbs. Not the high end safe weight of 800 and up but good enought for what I am looking for.

So it is comming down to brands. Liberty cannon Browning etc. I read some of the brands have had issues with the electrical key pads. Owners punch in the code and nothing happens. Service call out to fix it. This is not good. Would a mechanical dial prevent this, or a total different brand, or was this just a fluke?

I am still looking and unless I come across big $$ for a Fort Knox, etc, I will just most likely buy a Cannon or Liberty. For home use, quick smash and grab, I think these will be fine.



I found something that is 40 x 24 inches at home and used it as a template to see if I could fit something this size in my house, down the hall and into my bedroom. It will be tight real tight. I will need something like a piano dolly so I can spin into place. I would hate to buy this size and not be able to fit it into my room.
I can buy a 25 gun safe or maybe 2 25 gun safes but not real big on that idea but it could work.

Other option is to put this safe in the living room. Once there maybe build a nice cabinet around it. Decrative piece.

I worry about rolling it on tile. I guess depends on the dolly used. Maybe lay down something to roll on?

I sure as hell do not want to move this safe 2 or 3 times. I need to find out what will fit.

Mine is a liberty Lincoln series. It weighs over 1klbs.

I can't say enough good things about it.
