They suck - I'll be over to pick it up and take it to the dump for you - Terrible safe - Be there in 2 hours - Did I mentioned they suck -

Really though - Have not heard anything but good - Which model is it?

I'll snap a couple pics later...

It's like the following, but I opted for the mechanical combo, versus the electronic. Call me old fashioned.

Costco sold gun safes? How did I miss that. You sure the safes weren't "Kirkland" brand :D

Costco have been selling Canon safes for awhile now -

I wouldn't be surprised if they move enough that a mannufacturer would not mind jumping in bed with them -

I needed one in a hurry a year or so ago. Tractor Supply had a Cannon for a decent (cheap) price, so I bought it. Although it looks OK and has an SG electronic lock with a brass plated 5-spoke handle; the actual locking hardware inside the door is crap. Very sloppy. I went to the Cannon website to complain but they don't even list my model number. Must have been a contract production model. Other Cannon safes I've seen are not like this one however.

Is that the only thing you had a problem with?

Mine came from Tractor Supply Co.

Great safes. Had a problem with one of the handles not properly fitting when I first took it home from their retail store in Corona, and they sent out their locksmith who drove from San Bernardino to LA area to fix it for me. Top notch CS!!!:thumbsup:

Yeah, they sell 'em, but you have to buy a 5-pack.

The finish does come off easily but that's about it. The tape used to put a "SOLD" tag on it took some of the finish off. I haven't had an occasion to check the fire rating yet tho. :)

I picked one up from Tractor Supply on Black Friday for a good deal. Have had no problems with it since (other than I may outgrow it soon).

They still do sell them. They are made by Cannon, but under Cannon's alternate name Executive Vault. I got the EV900 for Christmas this year. Puts my other safe to shame!
