Default Sentry 10 gun safe at Wal Mart?

Does anyone know if this safe is green or black? I know it comes in both colors but the dumb webpage at Wal Mart does not specify the color.

Don't know. I was looking at that safe myself but have heard so-so things about its quality and reliability. The price is right though.

I have read that quite a few calgunners have bought the 14 gun version of this safe at Home Depot - I imagine it is using the same grade steel and other components as that one, just a bit smaller. I intend to bolt it to the wall in my garage and really just want something that will deter the less than committed thief. I live in a pretty safe area and just want something small for my small collection (4 long guns, couple pistols). When I get a bigger place and more guns I'll get a better safe. As far as color goes, my fiance would prefer black. I'd prefer to accomodate her color choice because if that is all she is complaining about in regards to my shooting habit (so far) I feel pretty lucky

You talking about this one, right?

I bought this one too and it came in black.

Just so you know, these are not "safes" really, just RSCs. I can get into any of them in about 2 minutes with a pry bar and a sledge hammer, the walls are only .10 in. or less thick steel.

That's funny. The second I read your first post I though, "Why the hell would he care what color it comes in? Oh, I'll bet his wife cares."

My girlfriend is pretty accommodating too. I can keep 40,000 rounds of ammo in the dining room as long as the crates and cans are packed inside cardboard boxes as my "record collection".

I realize that but right now I just want something that the CA DOJ considers a gun safe. I consider this a temporary solution until I get moved into a bigger place.

edit for cheaper link. that's the cheapest i found it in my quick search. shop around though, shipping cost can vary GREATLY

I have one, works fine for me even though it's not as secure as I would like it to be. Bolt it to the floor or wall for extra security. Beats stuffing your guns in the back of your closet or under the bed. The average thief is going to grab whatever he/she can find that is not locked up or bolted down although a house in Cottonwood, California had somebody take a pick axe to the walls looking for hidden firearms. From what I understand they totally demolished the place. I don't know whether or not they found what they were looking for but I suspect it was an inside job.

BTW, check out http://www.sturdysafe.com/minuteman.htm

They offer REAL protection from burglary and fire in a 30+ gun safe for about $1000.00 delivered. I have almost 10 times that in guns, so I consider it a good investment. Plus it stores documents and whatnot.

AMSEC also makes some good ones, for about twice the cost.

Now, now, now... don't be spreading false information about the Sentry safes. My door is a 6mm door which is about .236" thick. Nowhere near the .10 inch you are quoting. You could not get into it under 2 minutes with a pry bar and a sledge hammer.

For those considering Sentry Safes at Home Depot, they are good safes and just like anything else you get what you pay for. The real flaw about these safes is hiding under the plastic logo on the door. If anyone owns one of these and looks, you will see what I mean.

You must be pushing your brand for referral commission?

Ummm, no. Your cheap chinese import sentry safe may well have a .236" thick door, but the STEEL in it is not that thick. And yes, I could get in it in under two minutes with a pry bar and a sledge hammer.

Sturdy safes are also probably RSCs, since they don't claim any UL rating higher; an RSC is usually expected to stand up to 5 minutes of serious attack. They might also be unrated - nothing requires a business to submit samples to Underwriters labs - and might perform better than the RSC rating.

Beats the heck out of hiding things in a closet or under the bed.

True, but 7 GA steel beats the heck out of 12 Ga steel.

I'm not too sure which model number it is, but it looks like the one on the website. It was a blemished model, so I got a big break on price for it. However, it has 10 guage body thickness, and the dimensions are 60"x24"x19". It has the interior #2 with side shelving also. He told me when they don't have alot of orders to do, instead of sending the workers home, they made extra safes like these. Safe is already shipped and on will be delivered tomorrow! Talk about good service.

It's still an awesome deal IMO, those sturdy safes are the best thing going for the price, and the people there are great. Oh, I got a "blemished" model as well, their idea of a blemish is a small mark you cannot even really see.

thanks for the hookup! I was about to spend 8 hundred plus taxes and shipping fees last weekend at turners.

I'm happy I found that company through you!

Saved me some dough, so I can buy formula and diapers for my baby girl.

I have read all your posts and your very intelligent. A lot of people fall for the gimmicks of gun safes, but not you.

I read a recent ad for a safe company promoting they have extra long dead bolts! lol, like it actually matters. They have more than enough dead bolt length then they need. Oh well. I thought you would get a kick out of that.

So how long is long enough?(I am asking about the deadbolts, pervs)

Is Blackwater Ops safe still in one piece? Did he open it for the cops, or did they break it open?

It's not as important as how the dead bolt is supported in the door. A good locking assembly could keep the door locked at a quarter of an inch engagement.

I think length is important. I doubt any engagments happen around a 1/4 inch.
