costco has a sale on what seems to be a solid safe for the money. It's no Sturdy Safe but better than nothing. I missed out on the $800 cannon last month.

cons: made in china
pros: for $300 more than the $800 cannon it's 10 gauge steel with better fire protection.

still not sure how I feel about chinese made, but I don't think liberty or patriot can come close, let alone Sturdy.

thoughts?

I have that exact safe and love it. I would suggest getting the B7144el cause like everyone says buy once buy bigger than what you are planning to buy. You will run out of room. I already have.

Check the Rhino Website. It says the Classic line safes are 12 GA steel, not 10 GA.

Its an OK safe, but if you can afford it would recommend going with the Rhino 5942EL. Same company, but the Rhino line is made in the USA. It's a 10 gauge steel and weighs 1030 lbs. Yes its more expensive then the big horn model, but you do get what you pay for. Also the fire rating is 2.5 hours so if the house burns down to a pile of rubble, the contents of the safe will still be protected while the rubble cools.

I don't have one of these yet, hope to get one next year. The same size from Sturdy is higher price and the Liberty's are internal hinge and I'd rather have external so can remove the door to make moving the safe easier.

Thats a good price on a decent safe, but Bighorns used to be 10 ga., now the're 3mm, (about 11 ga.).

Get the thickest steel safe you can afford. 10ga, 12ga, is for shotguns.
