    I'm looking for a place here in Columbia, SC that would be a good place to get a gun safe. I know that Dicks Sporting has safes and Shooter's choice has safes. Do locksmiths sell safes? Anyway to get a good deal on a repo safe?

    Thanks for any help.

    Sometimes good replies can take a day or two. People's schedules differ.

    I don't have a safe, yet...only places I've seen locally that sell them are Sportsmans and Dicks like you already posted.

    I bought a GunVault from e-bay. But if you're looking for something to store more than a couple of handguns, I have no idea.

    I'm looking for long gun storage. Thanks though. I've been eyeing a Stack-On 28 gun safe at Dick's for a couple of weeks. This weekend I'll probably head over to Shooter's choice and check to see if they have any deals.

    Have you looked in the Carolina Trader? You may find a deal there.

    I guess I could do that. I just hate having to pay to look through ads.

    I bought my Liberty safe ($800) from Shooter's Choice over a decade ago and it is still serving me well. Even though I would love to have a larger one. Depending on your age and income, I would suggest buying a safe larger than you think you currently need (to allow for expansion of your collection). And I would suggest staying away from the Stack-On or locker style metal safes. Get yourself a real safe and it will pay you back in peace of mind dividends. You should be able to get a heavy duty "real" safe for around a grand depending on size. That's about the price of a high quality firearm.

    Also if you go to Shooter's Choice to get your safe, don't be afraid to negotiate the price. Probably won't get much off in this market, but you never know. And of course, sometimes cash will get you a break on price as well. Do yourself a favor and get some friends to help you transport and install it in your house. The prices that they quote for delivery and set-up are a little on the high side.

    Sorry. My bad. I wasn't trying to insult you, but the only Stack-On "safes" that I've ever seen are the ones at Sportsman's Warehouse or Dick's Sporting Goods. And they were essentially lockers. I apologize if I offended you.... :embarassed: You learn something new every day.

    Oh no. I wasn't offended. I was trying to make a point in a few words as possible. The wife was yelling for me to come to dinner. lol. I think might check out some pawn shops this weekend.

    No worries.

    Just looked in the 1 week old Carolina Trader that I had lying around and the only gun safe listing is:

    50 CU FT LIBERTY SAFE 42"W, 72.5"H, 27.5"D Granite color. Holds 43 long guns. Weighs about 1300 lbs. $1500. You must move. 803-414-6017

    This is exactly how the ad is listed and I just transcribed it exactly. I don't know the seller or anything about the item other than what it says. If the safe is in reasonably good condition, then this is probably an outstanding deal. I really wish that I could upgrade to this one myself. But it is probably too heavy and too big to go upstairs where I need it. Best of luck in your search.
