Been a lurker, but here's my first post...

Don't have a safe and need to get one. I heard Cannon's warranty was one of the best in the business. What do you guys think of this one at Sam's Club? 600 bucks with delivery included... Can anyone take a guess at the weight?

My preference is to put it upstairs if at all possible...

Thanks for your help.

The 14 Gun Canon is 400 pounds ballpark. I believe the Canon's website calls it 400, I think it is a tad less, but I am not bench pressing it either.

Costco has some good quality safes. I would be curious why you want the safe upstairs? I hope you don't ever plan on moving...

Possibly in my bedroom, I'm in a rental house so I can't bolt it to the ground... When I thought about it a little more, having any fire-safe upstairs would be just way too difficult putting it in and getting it out....

research several brands before jumping on one.

there are numerous threads here on the forum that can assist you with your research.

you might do well to check out used safes as well.

for another $100, you can get the 24 gun at Tractor Supply, if you have one in your area.

I have one of these, and it's a pretty nice safe, not sure about the 14 gun model.

always buy bigger than you think. misc items always end up in the safe.
i personally would stay away from a digital pad and get a dial instead.

oh, and the 24 gun safe, realistically only fits about a 14 long guns, or 12 scoped rifles.

dials can have problems too.

I have a Liberty safe. Lincoln model. Weighs about 500# empty. They have a lifetime guarantee if it's damaged in a fire or by an attempted break in, they will repair or replace it. Got mine about 10 years ago for about $1100 in San Jose.

This is the one I bought....should have gone a size or two larger!!

I think the only difference is mine has an electronic lock as opposed to a combo & key.

on another note something I don't hear people mention often.... never keep ammo in your safe. Most safes will not get hot enough to damage firearms, but DO get hot enough to make your ammo go boom. Buddy found that out the hard way. Guns survived the fire, but not the barrage of ammo going off inside the safe.

This is the one I bought from Lowe's for $397. Not bad for the price.

That one looks like exactly what I'm looking for at the right price, unfortunately they don't have it anymore... any other ideas?

After much research and thought, I purchased the Winchester safe from the Santa Maria COSTCO yesterday afternoon. It is still in the bed of my truck.

There are many worse and better safes out there. But you have to weigh your security needs and expectations.

I figured if this safe was strategically placed and anchored it would deter most would be burglars. (ie. gangbangers, junkies, and roaming teens)
It will not stop a professional. But, If you have a gun collection worthy of a professional 'hit' ,then you should be able to afford a better safe.

If it is anchored to the floor, in a corner of a room, with the back and non-hinge side against the walls, it would be difficult to gain any leverage to attempt to pry it open.

COSTCO sells a Winchester 19cf gun safe.
30 minute fire rated @ 1400*
59" x 28" x 20"

540LBs.

Costco sells it for $499
Winchester # WC-5928-11-E

6 more in stock at the Santa Maria store.

The Costco Winchester Gun Safe WC-5928 is California DOJ and UL RSC approved.

I have it inside the garage awaiting its permanent location. It should be placed and bolted to the floor tonight...
