It's not that you don't trust Craigslist (it's just classified ads), it's that you don't trust someone you'd be buying from, yeah? I know Gun Broker is like an eBay for guns. Used safes...your best bet is probably the local classifieds unless you manage to get someone that'll ship a used safe for you.

Check larger lock smiths in your area. And some of the safe manufacturers here in Ca. sell used or blemished safes.

If you want a decent deal on a local used safe:

1) Start "trusting" craigslist...
2) Start checking it several times a day...
3) When you see a deal jump on it...they go quick.

Yes, CL is a great place for gun-safes, especially when you are haggling the day before someone has to move out of their apartment

Got one off craigslist, and the people I got it from made me a little nervous. I only felt better about it because I was CCWing. It was in the garage, and the guy took forver to get it open. I was starting to think he didn't really have the combo. He was a pretty rough looking older guy, and there was another older guy tweeking on something at the workbench. Then there were several younger guys that looked a little rough inside the house and occasionally stepping out into the garage during the whole process. Big garage door open the whole time though.

I went way out of my way and several roundabout directions to make sure I wasn't being followed.

I would do it again, but maybe take someone with me. Still definately drive a crazy route home again too. Night time helped that scenario to be able to drive a long ways without seeing headlights behind me, but made me more nervous being at this house at night.

I bought one a few years back and told the seller it will problbly go to my brother in Phoenix (That takes the edge off)

Had a guy selling one on CL locally as he was moving back east.
His wife had him move it out to the garage already.
When I got there it took him a while to open it up and I noticed he was wearing a 1911.....I commented on it and he says there is another one inside the safe.

Long story short I bought both as a package deal

Remember You can always change the combo
