Thread: How to move a heavy gun safe

Have decided that in the future, I'll hire it being moved, learned my lesson the hard way. Early March of last year as I was preparing to move from Vegas back to Texas, I took it upon myself to move my small four gun Liberty safe with a traditional loading dolly. I had done it that way a couple of times before several years earlier. Did ok getting it out of the walk in closet, but as I went to move it out to the garage, I felt like something in my back ripped. Hired out the rest of the moving as I was totally down for a couple of weeks. Two doctor visits and xrays over the next six month period, I'm told I have arthritis, and not that bad for my age. Now after a year plus of slow healing of what I have been convinced was my spine being slightly out of alignment, and pressure on a nerve, I had a CT scan done two weeks ago for a cardiology and vein exam and as a note at the end of the report it mentioned that I show a "healed over" fracture in two vertebrae, one in the area I felt the ripping sensation.

I've just cardboard to slide on carpet. I've use a good dolly. I've used lots of guys. Up stairs, down stairs. I've use carpet to slide it on wood floors.
I LIKE those ideas on the first page, golf balls and soft balls. I'm going to have to remember that. I've got a bucket full of hard baseballs already.
