    NW Safe in Enumclaw is great. They might even have some year end specials left too.

    You will find boxes with locks at Costco and Sam's Club, but they are not quality. Look in to Liberty, more money, great warranty and service.

    Costco online and it's delivered to your door. They have them in some stores also if you want it same day. I bought a Cannon brand from them and have been happy with it.

    Do not buy a low end Liberty (fatboy) just tap the side and you will know why.

    how about when the sportsmans show comes through the PNW? its at the Puyallup Fair Grounds here again soon...should i expect decent prices and selection there? not lookin for anything REAL big, maybe 10 rifle cap with a shelf for pistols and ammo, but i want it to be heavy.

    Also looking - too bad NWSafe is so far from PDX.

    What about Fort Knox safes? There's a dealer in Canby.

    I think the biggest issue is price - you can spend $500 to $2000 and someone will tell you that the one you bought can be broken into within 8 minutes or hauled off or some other "obvious" flaw. Or you can spend $3000+ on the premium brands/models and feel more secure. Look at the reasons you are upgrading, value of your collection and most likely scenarios and then buy accordingly.

    I am an absolute fan of the Fort Knox brand. Expensive but first rate.

    And if you ever need to move the safe they will come and do it for you for $50, upstairs, etc. Great people.
