I'm moving into an apartment in less than a year and I'm looking for a reasonably small safe. I would prefer something fireproof, but that's not necessarily a dire need.

Do you guys have any suggestions on a reasonably priced ($50-$200) fireproof/non-fireproof safe?

To store?

You won't be getting much of a fireproof safe for $200 unless you shop around and buy used.

Look on Craigslist and check your local safe dealers (not gun safe dealers--but honest to goodness Safe Dealers) Many times they will have used inventory.

+1 for Craigslist. I found many good deals there when I was looking.

Looking to keep a handgun, cash, and some other valuables. Obviously a decent firesafe is upwards of $200 but I am just looking for something minimal that would give me a decent fireproof rating. Nothing substantial as I can't afford it.

Also, as I mentioned fireproof isn't exactly a necessity. Keep in mind it's for an apartment.

Since you have some time before you move, save $20 a week and in 6 months you will have over $500 and be able to buy something worth spending your money on. $10 a week will get you over $250.

Renter's insurance is even more important, just in case you haven't thought about that.

There were a lot of renters in Joplin that were SOL after the EF-5 tornado hit a couple of years ago. 100% loss of all possessions, no insurance.
Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon. You make valid moves while the pigeon knocks pieces over, poops on the chess board, and declares victory.
