Tractor Supply has Cannon safes. That's what you want. They run frequent sales on them too.


My local Lowe’s has just started carrying them also.

re: Recommend a gun safe, maybe sub 1200.
So, has anybody here had a safe breeched, or damaged by fire? If so how did the thieves do it? I have seen many you tube videos but only know of one person who had a friend that had their safe broken into , and one person who had an intruder (Daniel Blank) put a gun to his wife’s head and demand he open his safe……any stories?

Also a good place to put this

Eastern insurance company firearms policy

I think it is 150/ year for $30,000 worth of coverage for firearms and accessories, $100 deductible, and a claim will not affect your homeowners rate, you do not have to list your guns unless any one of them is worth more than $10k. Pretty damn good policy, and unless you have a Fort Knox safe …well worth it

Mr Hutton, please think about this statement and figure out what is wrong about it.


Can't figure it out. Point is, if you are going to put your safe in plain view, advertise when you are going out of town on social media, let the place where you bought it deliver it, now those guys they just hired know where you live, THEN DO NOT put anything valuable in it.

Secrecy is more important than the diameter of the locking dowels.

I have a liberty USA 30 gun that was around $1200 w mechanical dial. Very happy with it so far. Nobodys tried to burn the house down around it or bust into it yet though. Once you get used to the dial its ultra fast to get into. Not the same as a combo master lock.

besides doubling (still not enough) of the 'expected capacity" look at the shelving construction as well if you are planning to store ammo in there as well. Many of the cheaper ones I looked at cut corners and have MDF shelves are not reinforced at all and span the width of the safe. Definitely not the place you want to stack up a couple thousand rounds while waiting to take it a boat ride.

re: Recommend a gun safe, maybe sub 1200.
You said what if an armed intruder told you to open your safe, or something similar..
My point is,,, why in the dang world would you be caught out of weapons reach, or at least within a few steps of a weapon by someone that broke in, (that ain’t exactly silent) without having the ability to grab and punch holes,,, without intruder coming in, and walking yer arse to the safe in yer Birfday suit.
Have a plan, have weapons in most all rooms! Teach family, if any,, be aggressive, don’t have an intruder break in and put a gun to YOU. It’s your house, figure how to defend it.

Not that I disagree with you but “everybody has a plan till the get punched in the mouth”

Local story around here involves a wealthy businessman who woke up to Daniel Blank standing over him and hitting him across the head with a bat, then getting his wife out of bed and with a shotgun to her head tells the husband to open the safe, couple different versions of the story but apparently the husband makes a move for a gun and Blank shoots wife in face with shot gun (does not kill but severely injured and disfigured) and then takes the money and whatever else he wanted out of the safe

You can’t plan for everything, do the best you can

Amen, but there’s always one within reach or a couple of steps, room to room.

Thew alarm system is for 2 purposes..

#1 - gives any 'would be intruder' a headstart to start running away

#2 - if too stupid to not head #1, well I have at least 30 seconds lead time to prepare the reinforcement message.

re: Recommend a gun safe, maybe sub 1200.
The next house I buy (or build) I want to wall up a room with concrete filled blocks and get a safe door to put in it. The best option imho would be an OLD safe door from a small town closed up bank. I keep meaning to ask the lady whose family owned Pine Hill Bank in AL if they sold the safe door there when she closed that bank. I’m curious as to how they handle those big doors like that.

Mike Ward’s sells new safe doors for people who want to build their own and that might be a better option than the old bank style, nostalgia notwithstanding.
