Gun Safe Info...

I am looking for some info regarding gun safes. First are all safes combo lock or electronic pin pad? Are there any dual lock like say key/combo or key/pinpad? The only ones I have found are sentry and they are not fire rated. I have also seen some of the big safes like american security can have biometric added but for a whopping $600 :confused:. Also can anyone recommend a local safe seller that knows what the hell they are talking about and can answer some questions locally in Seattle/Tacoma area? I was severely disappointed at least 4 times today in knowledge/service at various stores in the greater puget sound area. I am looking for a larger safe, weight is not an issue, would prefer a 60 minute fire rating. I just need something other than dial or pin pad lock is the biggest issue in my hunt. Would like to keep it at or under $2000.

As most of the posters have mentioned, good safes are very expensive. Prepare for sticker shock! That said I would think that at least a few company's could install a combination lock with a center key lock as an option, for more $$$ of course!

If you are going to be in and out of your safe many times a day, then maybe an electronic or biometric makes sense. Personally I am rarely going into my safe more than once every few days, often a lot less. I didn't see a need for an electronic/biometric and still don't.

Obviously, your mileage may vary.

As others have said, a good safe is expensive. After much debate I went ahead and bought a Liberty Fatboy. I got mine from Liberty Safes of Oregon and couldn't be happier. I went to the show room on Saturday, and Sunday Kirk arrived around 1:00pm and had it bolted to the floor in way under an hour. I'm very happy with the new safe, as is my wife who was the one pushing me to get a safe. When I told her it can hold 64 guns she asked me if I was going to fill it with that many and I just smiled. ;)

I have a fort Knox and love it!


whatever you buy buy bigger than you think you need you'll be surprised how fast they fill up guns but also anything important ... banking info, tax returns, passports, hard drive back ups, cash, jewelry, lap tops, ect...
