    Now with new choices!!!!!! POST #9.......

    This will be for pistols and loot:wavey:
    Is one anchor hole enough?

    Looks like it has legs to raise it off ground. Is that bad?

    I like how easy it will be to hide this safe compared to others.

    No need to say i need a gun safe, already have one:cool: no i dont want another.

    I would anchor/bolt it down at each corner if possible. Try to run the bolts through the legs. Also, try to put it in a corner so it will decrease leverage of a pry bar attack if the invader tries to 'peel' it.

    I would but pretty sure there is only one anchor hole. Not sure where it is though. Middle?

    Wonder if the feet come off. If not i bet i could make a concrete base for it.

    Seems a little spendy for such a little safe. I think that is about what I paid for my AmSec 5924 (or something like that). Definitely needs to bolted down!

    I have not been super impressed with the quality of lockwork or bolts. I don't know if you can find one in a store but have them take the firewall off and look at the locking mechanism. Mine is no longer my primary safe.

    Also, try giving them a call. Not so good with customer service.
    Just my 2 cents...

    Is there a company you reccomend? I have been looking at their tl-15 safes too but WOW are those pricey.

    For the money Patriot looks like a good deal (I think they are made by Cannon). Cannon and Liberty have good reps. A co-worker just got a Winchester branded safe from Costco and likes it. It's not that the AmSec is a bad safe (I still use one) but I would shop around. Do you have a Cabelas? They have a lot of safes on the floor..

    Yes but all they have is gunsafes and if i end up getting another one it would be from Sturdy.

    Seems a waste to get a "rsc" rated gun safe when i could get a C class or TL-15 rated valubles safe for same price.

    Not looking at the one i posted in OP anymore:tongueout:
