Thanks for the heads up, I'm a Costco member who doesn't get a coupon book.

Which coupon book was this in? I don't think I saw it in the last one, I specifically looked for one. Been looking for a while since they sell out quickly.

In for one once it goes live. Definitely better than the $500 SentrySafe one they have my store, and this includes delivery!

Yeah, it's in the coupon book. Unfortunately I live in NYC so I don't know what I can use this for.

dial is mistake. It starts out ok but after 5+ years it starts getting wonky. I think the keypad is better. I have a bighorn safe similiar to this one but slightly bigger and I got the dial thinking it would be better. It's not. I'm worried soon I wont be able to open the safe at all without a locksmith. Go for the pad.

Hope this helps,

How does this compare to the 2012 Dicks Black Friday 24 gun safe for $400, 32 +6 gun for $600, and the 48+ 4 gun for $600? They were Stack On, Sentinel, and Field & Stream. I would think they would have similar deals for 2013 BF.

This includes delivery and doesn't require waiting in line although my DSG didn't sell out and even offered presale.

This is probably a good solution for keeping little fingers away from things they are not supposed to be touching.

If you are thinking about real protection against a robbery, I would suggest you do a little research online. From the weight of this safe, I am thinking this is a composite door and maybe....maybe 10 gauge steel. There are several videos on Youtube that will show the difference between this safe and some wanting a few more dollars. (OK..quite a few more dollars.) In fact, just to name a couple of companies...Sturdy and Ft. Knox. I am mentioning these guys because there are some pretty good videos by them showing the difference in safes.

And while I am sure you can find some people who say these electronic locks are fine, everybody I spoke to..and there were many...ALL said..expect these electronic locks to fail at around 7 years on average. And that is with the higher end locks. This "Securam"...I do not think it is a higher end lock. When it fails, you WILL need a safecracker to come open your safe and replace the lock. The dial locks....they can be in service a 100 years later if they are higher end. Of course you need to balance that with how fast you think you need in order to get into the safe, how many combinations you need..if you want to ever change the combination, etc.

Now having said all this.....cost matters. I get it. And if this is the only safe you can afford, it is FAR better than nothing. It is also FAR better than a gun cabinet. But understand that this can likely be breached by a motivated robber with no great skills in under 2 minutes.

I'm thinking the same thing about the dial and at 450lbs I'm worried that it can be carried out on a dolly. IMO even though there have been price increases a good safe can be had sub $1000.

Bolt it to floor.

Hasn't been my experience. I have a bighorn rhino safe for about 6 years and after 3 the combo dialer started (and still is ) quite wonky. Maybe it's a lower end safe but still dials are not very good, I would rather have a keypad.

Then I guess there's no need to repost Amazon's Deal of the Day's or Woot Offs since they are published elsewhere.

I caught this deal from slickdeals, usually my wife will check the coupon book, and she doesn't do the gun safe shopping in the house. Thumbs up.

My dad has an electronic lock on his gun safe (I have a dial on mine). In about the second year it stopped opening. Changed the battery, etc. While waiting for the company to service it, I stopped by, checked it out - found that if I pushed in on the door, the 9v powered solenoid would then work (about 20lbs of force pushing on it, even though the door didn't "move"). Thought it might have been binding up when I could hear the solenoid making noise when the code was entered (but not unlocking).

Repair rep never showed up, nor did the second one that he called to come out, so he's using it that way until he gets a different safe. I believe it's a Field & Stream safe.

Is this a better deal than a Winchester safe that is $50 more and 2 cubic feet and 93 lbs heavier? That deal is at Tractor Supply and carries the same warranty although no free curbside delivery.
