Exclamation Costco Gun Safe on Sale!!!

Please, don't let your guns get into the hands of Bad Guys. My stomach turns every time I read or hear another story about bad guys stealing a bunch of guns, especially the kind we all fancy so much. Buy a freaking gun safe.

Now.

Stop putting it off. Do it now. Use a credit card. Now.

Costco.com
http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...opnav=&browse=

You will not find a better deal than this. $999.99, and that includes delivery to your curb. 30cuft, fireproof, 600lbs, predrilled holes for bolting it to the floor, and it has a digital combo lock so you can get it open in around one second. This is the safe I own and yes, you really can open it in a second. It's fantastic.

And what really amazes me is that it's ON SALE right now. I can't believe it! $899.99 delivered! But the website says you only have until Friday to get the extra $100 off.



I'm serious, if you are one of those fools who owns guns but you keep putting off buying a gun safe, stop being a fool. Buy this safe right now. You will not find a better deal. Period.

And you will never regret buying it.

Stop thinking, just do it! Just click on the link or go to Costco.com and do it right this minute.

Isn't this the one that they have for $700-$800 at there stores? Of course you don't get the delivery and $100 to $200 is nothing for delivery for a safe like this.

yeah delivery for a safe like that is about $150-$200 and is well worth it! I would suggest you install a mounting board (as think as possible), with the biggest screws and as many screws as possible at the location you plan to store the safe. This way when the safe comes for delivery you can just drop it off and bolt the safe to the mounting board. A 600 lb safe bolted to the floor and wall will be quite a task to take.

Be aware that "delivery to the curb" means just that, to the curb. You need to have a plan how to get it from the street into your house or garage and take it off the shipping pallet. Consider renting an appliance dolly and inviting a couple of friends over.

Costco delivered my safe all the way to my room and unpacked it. They also took the trash and set it in the corner where I wanted it.

looks like the Canon Patriot http://www.cannonsafe.com/safesamericaneagle/ that was made for Costco and named the executive...

Cost from http://deansafe.com/ is $836. Standard delivery is like 150 (with pleanty of 50% off delivery cupons around), and install/bolting service is available... just a thought...

Default Winchester safe

The Winchester Safes at Sams Club are also a good deal right now. They also have external hinges which lets you open the door a lot farther than the Costco. Best part was the sub-$600 price for a fire lined electronic lock safe of decent size.

My buddy slipped the delivery a 20 and asked if he would help take it inside.

I think the Costco link info said it was the "wide" body model (36"). The ones I usuually see at Costco are the 30" wide models.

Quote:
High-quality WIDE BODY safe is designed to provide plenty of space for storage of almost all of your valuables conveniently in your home or office in this Executive Vault that protects from both fire and burglary. It features a massive 3/16-inch solid plate steel door, one-inch active-locking bolts, True lock internal hinges, Sure Fire multiple re-lockers and so much more!
Seems like decent deal with the $100 coupon.

Hrmmm, you would have to post this after I put a down payment on a Liberty Safe. It is amazing how much more Liberty Safes are....of course the fire protection rating is much higher. Now I am wondering if paying 3 x the price is worth that protection. Seems like both would protect the same vs theft.
I may be switching my order now after seeing this.
thanks!!!!

That's a $40 tip minimum to help move. I wouldn't touch that for $20.

I have this safe from Costco and I have seen the Liberty safes. Liberty safes have a much thicker door so thats why your paying 3X more. However I like my safe from Costco, only cost me $690 a year ago at the store and it weighs near 600 lbs. and I would do fine in a smash and grap situation. I am still young so I will probably have to get another or upgrade to a Liberty safe in the future.

No safe mover is EVER going to see where I'm going to put my safe. I'll find a way to move it myself.

hope you don't have stairs and narrow hallways. you are only putting your friends and yourself at risk if you intend to move it yourself... then again if you have access to the proper dollies, lifts, and straps you should be ok.

Small PVC pipe sections (nipples) are a "godsend" when moving these babies.

For those starting out home depot had some sentry safes on sale for 370 something bucks. It's not a big safe but for beginners who are quick to buy many handguns at one time, its something to look at.

I get that part... but I'd rather leave it down in the garage and deal with humidity/temp issues than have a delivery guy know where I was placing it.

Call me paranoid.

Some people don't have a choice, though, I know.

I believe the guys from Liberty Safe that moved my safe were bonded. They'd been associated with the local safe store for years. Two were semiretired guys. They were very sharp, knew how not to mangle my tile floor or damage my stairwell and understood discretion in getting safe in the house (it was covered appropriately).
