Default Pendleton Safes

Saw a video on their Safes on youtube from Shotshow 2010.

Their Safes are revolutionary. I wouldnt mind having one, unfortunately all their stocking dealers are on the East coast for some reason.

You can buy rotating racks for long guns already. Been on the market for years. They come in different sizes to fit most safes. One site is www.gun-racks.com. I have seen them on the auction sites also and from different manufacturers.

Nice gun racks! Too bad scoped rifles reduce the capacity to half...

I like the fact if it's knocked on it's side it's almost impossible to pry.

But they sound like empty oil drums. I wonder how tough the sides are?

I'm still wondering how much they run. I'd be interested in the smaller sized one with manual spinning doohickey.

That's what I'm thinking too.

1 minute with some scrap steel and a cheap welder can make a bracket to stabilize it and stop it from rolling.
Prying on the door may not be the smartest way in, especially with the tools they were using. That door frame is the strongest part. I would imagine that a sledge and one of their handled wedges could be used to cut into and shear the side open.

Granted, it's not going to be easy... and they probably aren't going to get into it when it's in your home, but if they can get the entire safe out and into a trailer/truck, they'll have plenty of time to work it later.

I looked on their web site, and I seem to have missed where they describe (in print, didn't watch any of the clips) what protection level they offer vs fire and burglary. UL ratings are common, but not required.

Couldn't see anything either on the site about what thickness steel they use. However, on the second video, the owner says they use 0.25" throughout. That's very thick and pretty impressive. With 0.25" steel, I don't think anyone's going to getting through the body with sledges or axes!

He also touts the very narrow gap between the door and frame to prevent prying. While nice aethestically, I'm not sure why they don't just recess the door in the frame more...

I must admit it's a cool safe!

Flush would be the best. If you recess the door it would give a pry bar a better lever to pry off of.

Give me a plasma cutter or simple oxy/acy torch and I'll get into ANY safe

I took a look at these at SHOT. Seemed like a really good way to maximize safe room. I will be trying to stock these in the near future.

Good location in Tracy too... depending on the price, might be worth borrowing a trailer and making the drive.

Hm, I have to think about the physics... doesn't flush give you a better shot at getting underneath the door with the pry bar (which they are able to do in that video). With a recessed door (especially if deep with a small gap), it seems it would be really hard to get the pry bar underneath the lip of the door. Rather if you managed to pound the pry bar into the gap, wouldn't you be prying directly against the side of the front door panel rather than underneath and up? (I don't really know, have never tried to attack a safe!)

Prying against the door itself isn't going to help you.
You need to pry the side of the safe away from the door to get the frame to clear the bolts.

You aren't going to shear the bolts, so you aren't going to pry the door up and off of the safe.


That's why I made the "Monkeys effing a football" comment about the demo video. The way those guys were going after that safe, they would have spent 10-15 minutes and not gotten into a $500 Centurion.

I'm not saying that the Pendleton isn't a worthy safe... it appears to be solid, and I'm sure it's as good as any quality safe.

Their plant is in Sumter, SC not far from where I live. Their parent company makes bank vaults and ATM machines.

It's seems like all safes that suit my needs are made in Utah or CA. Unfortunately for me I need a safe for more that just guns so the Pendleton safe is not at the to of my list. If I could use one of their safes I'd avoid shipping charges which from CA to SC are really high on a 3500 lbs safe.
