Thanks for the info, AK Stick. I think everything you said is correct. This is going to be one of my home defense preps for when things hit the fan not just now. I realize even the TL30 will just buy me time, but I want to try and do the best I can.
So, if you were looking at safes in the general size of the Franklin 50, Champion M45, and others which would you go with? I'd like to get a good one that I'd never have to replace or worry about.
Also, how do you encase the sides to prevent access?
