    Only 4,000 lbs ?

    Seemed very light, until i saw it was only made of 10 gauge steel.

    I've moved 4,000 lb safes made of 1/2" plate. Quite a bit smaller.

    That thing is neat, but at that size, it seems more gimmicky. Most anyone would be better served by several "smaller" safes. Or the sheet metal security containers labeled as safes.

    I think Bac recently downsized his collection......but, probably still has quite a big volume of guns to keep under lock and key.......:notworthy:

    I have an access issue and can't get a large safe in the gun room so I have four 36" wide safes.

    While gimmicky it serves a purpose. Let's be honest 4,000 lbs is quite a load, 2 ton. If it is smaller it is easier to remove the whole safe from it's present location. However try moving that size same weight out of a house.

    Same here. I'll probably pick up two more this year. I'm up to 6 safes now

    I always kind of figured BAC bought one of those surplussed missile silos and converted it...

    But not one of the newer ones. One of the true quality made ones from the late 50's or 60's. Did they offer pinned and recessed silos?

    So, I have to ask... what do you need a 10 foot high safe for?

    (wait, we are talking about guns... the word "need" is not to be spoken!)

    Wasn't trying to imply it would be easy to move. It's size would make it difficult to move safely. And could likely only be installed in an rv garage, or warehouse.
