    I can get one $400 shipped. Better than a regular cabinet that are 200.

    What do you think for a small apartment?

    Just be sure you can't operate the door solenoid with a strong magnet from the outside.

    Yea, I heard about the magnetic solenoid trick.

    No way to really try it on the safe as I don't have it. I have heard that Fortress safes are definitely low end, which I am looking for low end. Just not so low end you can get in in less than 20 seconds.

    I will only use dial combos, glad I never got e-locks... ESPECIALLY after seeing that video!

    I be too far away from you to schedule anything definite, and I work emergency "demand service" all over the place. You can't just leave it outside until I'm available in the area. :confused:

    I went to the local locksmith shop near me to inquire about having the dial combination changed on my gun safe. I don't like what it came with and can never remember the odd numbers.
    They told me that they had to do it with the lock mounted in place and the minimum service charge will be over $75.00 plus mileage.
    I had already looked on You Tube and there is a video showing how, but I needed a special key that fits the inside part of the lock.
    I asked the locksmith if he could sell or rent me one, but he insisted that they weren't sold to the public and they cost over $125.00.

    Went home and found one on eBay for only $12.99 plus free shipping.

    If you have a S&G LaGard 3 wheel lock, you're more then welcome to use mine.
    Here's a link on how to change it.
    I will have mine delivered in a couple of days.
