Always buy bigger than you need
STAY AWAY FROM KEYPADS! I was talking to a local safe and lock guy (store owner) and he said that almost all of the safes that he has to go "drill out" to open for homeowners are keypad safes. Unreliable and not to metion you are screwed if there is an EMP pulse or somethine. Good luck getting it open yourself. The time you save with the keypad is not worth the risk (and not to mention the money) if there is a problem. Tumblers have been around for over 100 years for a reason....
Also, he said if possible buy American. Yes it is pricier, but you get what you pay for. The China steel is not of good quality and the welds can be shoddy. Be careful, even though some safes are from an American company, they can still be made in China.

What happened to the liberty?
Lies. Keypads are just fine.
If there is a big enough EMP pulse you are screwed and will not make it to your safe
Look into TL-15 and TL-30 ratings. Do a little reading and see what people use who put big $$$$$ in safes.........like Jewelry store owners, etc.
