Pet peeve of mine.
I've read that on Rimfire before.
I was looking at Amsec safes the other day. Well, not exactly safes, their RSC. The B rated ones got pricey quick. I've been looking at the Browns for a while which are also pricey but I need something better now! I'll probably be buying one from Amsec in a few weeks and upgrading to a Brown or Graffunder in the hopefully near future.
I looked at the cheap ones from Academy and don't like the lock situation, as others have stated. I'll take a mechanical S&G over the electronic ones that seem to have battery problems.
When comparing the Amsec to say, a Liberty, the fireproofing seems a little better and some of the design features. Costs are similar but Liberty has more luxurious features and the Amsec is more practical. Ill take practical for a "safe."
@tinplas Thank you so much for sharing your expertise. I almost bought a cannon last year at academy on sale... I still am tempted to get a 700 dollar unit to have SOMETHING.... I will definitely look into AMSEC and Gauffander.... BROWN's were expensive.. a 24 gun safe was 4000 bucks. I'm looking in the 800 to 1200 dollar region.
Your price range is in line with a smaller Liberty safe.
Nothing wrong with them, especially if you want a little piece of mind "right now". Just know that there are much better choices out there, obviously they will cost more.
Friend of mine has a couple of used Coke machines, strips the guts out and its gun safe. He called over at the Coke Dist in town and I think he paid $150 for it. Well built, hard to break into, insulated and would fool somebody...
I thought the reason you had guns was to protect your property?
Well thats the problem, you need to keep them hidden till you pull them out to take a selfie.Then away they go.
If you need protection you call 911 and wait 30 minutes while you are tied to a chair and have to watch your wife and kids get abused.
Wait!!! Aren't you the guys with pajama holsters?
Glad I could help, but the only expertise I brought was the ability to cut and paste. The retired locksmith on rimfirecentral provided the knowledge. Hope it helps
