Thread Details

So I've been in the market for a safe for some time now. I've been shopping around, and the really nice safes usually run about 1k.

I stumbled upon a link for 25 dollars off when you spend 100 dollars on costco.com. So, I went to costco.com to see what i would potentially want. volia, there was the beautiful safe being featured. The bighorn 24 gun safe. Looked at the reviews for it, and it was overwhelmingly good.

This is not the first time they put this safe on sale for 569.99. But you can also use the amex facebook sync feature to get an additional 25 bucks off it.

I finally pulled the trigger, and thought I might share with the community.

a couple of more days of this sale if you guys get on it!

Can anyone with this safe tell me:

1) How many bolts are there?
2) Where are they located? Are there bolts on all four sides of the door?
3) Are there pre-drilled holes for securing the back of this safe to the wall?

My wife and I are looking to adopt a child, so we have to go through a "home visit" process. Firearms in the home must (and should be anyway) properly secured. I have a couple of long guns that I need to do something with, and this safe seems to be a good value for the money. However, some considerations:

1) It is relatively light as safes go. If I can move it in with a dolly, it can be moved out with one too. Considering where I want to put it, I'm reluctant to drill through tile into concrete to secure the safe to the floor. I would rather secure it to the wall.
2) When buying a safe, an important feature to help resist against pry-attack is having bolts on all four sides of the door.

I have no doubt that a pro could get into this safe in a relatively short amount of time given the proper tools and the space to work, but as others have commented, that is why you have insurance. This safe would be very effective for keeping out amatures, and children. However, a locking gun cabinent would be just as effective for keeping children out and would cost $100.

I guess my point is that if this safe doesn't have bolts on all four sides, then while it might be a good value at $560 relative to its competition, I would rather invest more money into a higher quality safe. OR I could save that moeny, get a basic gun cabinet for the long guns, and live with the risk that if my house was robbed, even amatures would get into the gun cabinet. What I want to avoid is paying $560 for a safe that even an amature wouldn't find difficult to break into.

This safe is great for keeping honest people out. But a theif can open this safe in under 15 minutes with basic tools. A local store here Ranch and Home purchased the Winchecter safer from costco and using a sledge hammer beat a hole in the side in under 10 minutes and was able to reach in and grab items.

Something to consider.

This and a monitored alarm system that will summon the police will be fine. The fear of the police coming will prevent them from wasting time trying to open it. And lets not even mention security cameras..
