Yeah I was going to go with a $600 Liberty safe then all my research got the best of me and I ended up with this Ft. Knox safe for $2514 delivered and bolted to my garage.

Looking at this as an investment rather than a purchase.

I did too. A good quality safe is an investment in your gun collection. I went with the Sun Welding product and the CS Safe product which is a Sun Welding product built to CS specs.

As you now know.. its all about steel plate in a safe. I also learned about the benefit of the stainless steel liner when I did my research.

Yeah I just couldn't justify paying 2100 for a 10 ga steel safe from them or kick it up $300 more for a 3/16" steel body and 3/8" steel door

yeah.. I feel that 3/8" and 3/16 are the bare minimum. BOlting the safe to the concrete pad is HUGE. Once a safe is on its back in a floor, the thieves have a huge increase in mechanical leverage to try and pry the door.

Yeah the price I paid from west coast safes includes shipping and bolt down. Wouldn't get a safe without bolting it down
