    I am looking for a high quality/security money safe
    I don't know much about them. I have read the anything rated TL-15 is very good. What do you think of this company and safe in particular. If you have a better suggestion please let me know, but $1200 is my max. thank you

    The better question is what are you trying to protect from? Kids, then a cheap $200 safe will suffice. Smash and grab, you may want something a little better. I have a Sturdy Safe. I think that the entry model is $1100 shipped, and it has 7ga steel. Sucker weighs 500#'s.

    Two words. Rogue Safe. It is, however beyond your budget.

    Regardless of which safe you buy, think of how you're going to install it. The install is at LEAST half the security. Think of bolting it in to concrete, etc, limiting access to only the front side can also be beneficial to prevent access to the sides.

    I appreciate all of the additional advice everyone is giving, but all I really want to know is if you have heard of this website and if this safe looks like a solid buy. I will be bolting down this safe to a concrete foundation. I am getting a much better response on this website compared to some others who are offering me financial advice, scolding me for not supporting the banking institution, and reminding me that economic collapse is near and the only safely is gold and bullets. So much for a simple answer. :laugh:

    Looks like high quality, but doesn't look very large. If you're looking to store firearms, long guns are definately out of the question.

    The OP is only focused on storing cash, not guns.
