|BigCheapBasterd||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..|

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.

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.

At any rate, be warned that the interiors on these things stink like glue, plastic, etc from VOC outgassing. If you can, leave it out in your garage a for a week with the door open and let it air out.

i am pretty sure this is not a cannon safe. i think costco sells many different brands. unless cannon is the same thing as big horn. which i don't see why it would be...
and take off the door! what an awesome idea... hopefully it will be able to slide off easy... that should make the job MUCH easier. thanks s4alex!

Pretty sure this is a Cannon as I have the same one and it's identical in every feature although mine has a built in AC/USB/RJ-45 outlet in the bottom.
Wish I would have waited, because I pad $200 more for mine.
And I did manage to get this baby into my basement by myself. It's not as bad as you'd think.
