OK, let's see your safes... how about a picture thread of your safes, one picture of it closed, and if you are willing, one of it open... (empty or full, however you like)

Mine is currently on order and expected in the next 6 weeks, but while I wait, I thought it would be fun to see what others have done to protect their firearms, ammunition and other important items.

Mine is a basic black safe, gold pin striping around the edge of the door, ceramic lined, holds 16 long guns and has shelving to accommodate many handguns and plenty of ammo. I will be installing it in an interior hallway tucked in under a cutout under my staircase, but fully in view in the hall only. It is 24x36x72

"The less people know about it, the more secure it is" is part of the security of safes.

REALLY old pic - of my Sentry 14-gun safe, with me standing next to it for a size comparison.

Wow, I just noticed that I was still wearing my old mp3.com badge in that picture! By the way, that - including the H&K t-shirt - is how I used to dress going to work, just to piss off the liberals. :)

This has been posted before... They say you can't buy a safe too large, but I've been thinking I should have got one size smaller. At anyrate, it only hurts (financially) once.

You seriously keep a revolver in the fridge? I thought about keeping a gun in mine, but I figured condensation and rust would be issues.

I only keep my stainless steel guns in there - the one shown is a Smith 629-1. :D

Interesting. How long have you been keeping it in there, and do you ever take it apart to check for rust?

I'm just wondering if all of it is stainless, including the springs and small bits. I may be forced to consider a revolver, if you've been storing yours for a lengthy period without incident.

At night, I move it to the Furby box. When it gets cold, I put it in the toaster.

I left a revolver in one of the many extra drawers in my kitchen once.. It got found by a guest real quick so I don't do that anymore.

Gram I like your mantle it reminds me of my fathers house In LA. but for some reason every time I go to visit there are always XMAS Ornaments still on it from December. I guess Mom forgets to put them away until someone mentions it.

My house was quiet (12:40am) and I was reading this thread... Then I get to CALI-gula's post about his safes. I laughed out load and probably woke up my wife and kids. Thanks a lot!:D

Actually, that's my grandparents' old place - I used to live there until work made me move (when factory downtime's valued at $1 mil/hr, they tend to order sysadmins to move to within a 15-minute drive to work as an unofficial term of employment)

How much does a setup like that run and how thick are the surrounding walls? Ever think about putting a normal door in front of that just to make it blend it when guests are over? That is if the vault door was more recessed.

No, of course not to either! What do you think I am, a hill-billy?

My car is parked in the front yard, on cement blocks, high enough and close enough that I can open my trailer's window to reach into the car and open the glove box! :D

They are a safe company out of Fresno. They only sell direct, so you will never hear dealers talk about them. Some swear by them, some are more sceptic (like me). They swear their safes are the best, but non of their products have ever been subject to independent evaluation. That applies to both security and fire ratings.
