I recently bought an AMSEC BF7240 (Burglary-Fire; 72" high x 40" wide). It isn't cheap, something like $3,000, but I figure it is worth it given the value of the contents. There is a recent posting here in CALGUNS about a Browning safe that was sawed-open with a Sawzall, apparently easily; I think the takeaway from that is not to leave the safe out in the open where the sides can be easily accessed for sawing. No safe is breakin-proof, but I feel confident that the AMSEC with its 1/4" thick door and heavy-gauge side-walls are better than most. It also has a good fire-rating, but I'm building a cabinet around it with extra sheets of drywall to increase the rating and make access more difficult. I am very happy with it so-far.
