    We have the electronic lock. You can change the battery without opening the safe and if you have electronic issues you can use the backup key.

    That's a good size safe, you have room for ammo :) I bought the smaller $400 one, all my guns fit (barely) but no room for the ammo :-(

    The manual dial is the way to go. (What electronic gizmo can hold up to heat)Hard to beat a liberty! Contact the liberty guy in Hubbard. He may have a better price and he does deliver. I have the Fatman (1200lbs.) He has moved it twice for me.

    Too much empty space in the safe.

    Time to fill it up...

    Both the delivery person bringing the Sturdy brand safe and Kirk of Liberty Safe in Hubbard use trucks with no logos and can cozy right up to your garage door so no worry about sketchy individuals knowing you have something valuable to lock up.

    Thats where I bought mine from. Free delivery up to 50 miles. I could have bought it a bit cheaper elsewhere. But, they take $75 off the price if you haul it yourself so basically they are building a delivery fee into the price. The deliver in a unmarked truck and trailer and are very professional.

    And it was a major worry of mine since we have had questionable types roaming the neighborhood.

    are you referring to the video? I don't think its weapon education, but safe and security education. like anything on the internet take it for what its worth.

    I will say it is funny though - if someone asks a question someone usually responds back and says google is your friend and have you searched for it. if you do google it as was done here initially now the response is something different.

    what an elliptical world we live in.

    A couple of good pieces of advice in here: get more space than you think you'll need and the best security of all is to not tell or show anybody you have a safe or any reason to put anything in one.

    Most burglaries are a result of the disease called mouthus flappus.

    I like the idea of having a safe, I do have one but here is the thing.... I don't think having a safe will ultimately matter unless you also have an alarm system.

    Reason, give half decent thieves a little time and a gun safe is not going to matter unless it is a pretty kick butt safe made really well or very well hidden. That is, unless they are just smash and grab meth heads as many are.

    Alarms can be complicated and need pro installation or simple and can be do it yourself projects and still work very well.

    Up to you and what you can do or afford. Security cam systems now can function as DVR type recorders and as movement detecting alarm system too. That is how mine works.

    I have many more $$ in tools in my garage then I have $$ in guns in the safe. I think my tools would function as a distraction to keep thieves from spending too much time trying to find my fairly well hidden gun safe.

    That along with a few crappy bait guns I have setting in my closet will hopefully work to distract them long enough for the alarm to work and get the cops their in time.

    Good point. I have kids in the house so the safe was a must have. It's primary purpose is to make sure little hands don't gain access to guns.

    I have also been giving some thought on how to hide a full size safe. Not sure I've figured out how to hide it...

    Hiding in plain sight is the ticket.

    A large closet might work, I thought about doing that but it was just not large enough.

    Grand kids are pretty much why I bit the bullet and bought a gun safe. Son said, grand kids are NOT coming for a visit unless your guns are in a safe place locked up. He went through the same problem, had to buy his own gun safe due to this, it all came from his lefty liberal dem wife, she is great but her politics, well, you know.

    I'll describe my "hiding place" as it may be helpful to any of you in building your own.

    My house is 2 story and the lower floor was a walk out basement style so one of the rooms that was at the back side up against the foundation, I built a false wall 40" out from the actual wall. It is solid wall on the left and the right side has a bi-fold door. The bi-fold part that opens is completely mounted on steel tracks top and bottom. It functions like a large bi-fold door. Push really hard in the center and it opens, it looks like a long narrow walk-in closet when the door is open and you look in. The gun safe is at the back end and is 36" wide so I can keep a bunch of other stuff back there also. Bad part of that is, the other stuff is setting in front of the gun safe as the gun safe is at the far left in back.

    While installing the gun safe I added heavy wood framing around it so it is going to be very hard to remove unless that false wall gets removed first. I installed paneling in that room then painted it all so there are vertical paneling seems all around the room. It looks like an old style paneled room that has been painted.

    Unless you know exactly where to "push" you will have a really hard time figuring out there is a false wall that opens. It is all spring loaded so the push needs to be more then 20 lbs and done "just right" or that bi-fold wall section does not budge. Once it opens, you have to work hard to get it all the way open due to the springs. My wife can hardly open it.

    About 3 or 4 people could stand in there [unless it gets filled with stuff] so it could function as a hiding place during a home invasion also. I should probably put a lock on it that works from the inside only so if any one had to hide in there, they could lock it from the inside.

    The bi-fold door is framed with 1.5" steel tube with a wood skin. I am a welder so rather then try to build it from wood and get it to work with precision, I went with a steel frame and 5/8 plywood skin, covered that with the paneling for looks. It is rock solid and runs on bearings top and bottom so it does not rattle and feel crappy like those cheap closet style bi-fold doors.

    Grand kids probably would never find it or be able to open it but "just in case" the gun safe is in there and every one is happy.

    So if any one is thinking about hiding a gun safe, think of it as adding a small closet with hidden entrance.

    Robert

    It's a very good brand and all of it is made in the USA. I have a Woodsman. I almost bought the Bighorn safe from costco until I found out that it's not all made here and it has Formaldehyde inside which is bad for guns. Go figure.
