I am in need of a good safe. I am looking at gun safes so I can fit long guns in there as well as other valuables. It needs to have great burglar and fire protection. I have been most impressed with Sturdy Safe, from looking at websites. They are one of the few comapnies who use anything better than 10 gauge for less than a few thousand dollars. I don't want a thief to be able to go to my garage to get a tool to get into my safe. However, I think I can build one that would be better in every way for cheaper. A friend of mine is a master welder and will help me build it. The part I have the biggest reservation on is integrating the locking mechanism into the door securing linkages. What does everyone have for a gun safe? Pics would be great. Has anyone built their own?
