Electronic versus Manual combination safes.

What is the best bang for the buck safe ?

Good question. Liberty safes keep showing up as highly rated. Mesa’s are highly rated but pricey. I just ordered a Liberty safe from Tractor Supply, but refused delivery because of extensive damage it came with. To their credit, Tractor Supply immediately refunded my money.

Interesting, as I've been looking at getting a gun safe for my daughter and her husband so I've been looking at this stuff recently. Liberty is a good bet, particularly the Centurion Series. I spent a lot of time with the salesman talking about the locks. I have a simple Sargent and Greenleaf combo lock on my Ft. Knox. Works just fine, no battery to run down. He said stay away from the Chinese-made safes, as they were really inferior, and very easy to break into. He also said avoid any locking mechanism with a "back up" key. They weren't very secure. Otherwise, quality mechanical or electronic locks are just a personal preference. Both are good.

Dude, you need a fucking Arms Room...   not a safe...   :lmao:

That is on the list... Been measuring my "free space". I can't afford to give up living space right now. Perhaps a portion of my wife's enormous walk-in closet. Perhaps an add-on building in the back.

I have a Canon Armory 80 gun. It’s good enough for now...

I 'love this safe. Perfect size home safe.

I have a Cannon manual combo I bought in 1995. Still my favorite safe.

Also, be sure you bolt them down into concrete. With a good dolly, I can move a 600 pound safe by myself. I have done it.

i assisted on an 800 lber. then boltetd it to the concrete for golf clubs! kinda broke my heart for golf clud storrage but its a strong ass safe!
