Re: FV-QR (delta v)

Without going into too many details...I break up my guns into important components, which are easy to hide - then I also use my airsoft guns are kept in my rifle bags, whilst my real guns are hidden.
You have to get inventive. Most break ins dont have a lot of time. They'll run through stuff quickly, so the more sneaky you are at hiding/disguising/disassembling them - the better off you are.
Keep one assembled for defense of course...

Re: FV-QR (Elbows)

I have been looking at Liberty safes. There is a store about 30mins from me who is a dealer. I need to stop in one day and take a look around. I am in the process of buying my first home and need to purchase a safe.

What do people who live in apartments have? I've seen things that kinda rope-lock them all into a corner onto something sturdy, but I'm not sure how secure that would be...

ask .:Rdriver to show you the system i set up... if he still has the info. it works well. i'm sorry i don't have the pics here with me in Iraq.

No experience with either of them, but based on the specs, I think I would go for the Patriot over the Browning.
Looking at the Browning, it looks to be much like the Winchester brand safe from Sams Club that I have, 12ga body, roughly the same ratings and weight and so on.... but the Browning is $1100+ and the Winchester is under $700

I have one of the Sams Club Winchester units, sans the Winchester Horse Rider decal (I left the Winchester name decal, but the horse I removed), and I like it well enough.
I've piled a good bit of weight on the shelves and they're OK, it opens and closes smoothly, sounds good when it shuts, and for the price is OK.
Everything discussed thus far in this thread aren't safes though, they're "Residential Security Containers" and are rated as such.
For a real safe, a company like Graffunder can help. Not cheap, not light, but a real safe. I'll eventually get one, but for now what I have will do. http://graffundersafes.com/
RSCs stop kids, crackheads, and snatch and grab house burglars. They sure won't stop anyone who really wants into your safe. There are videos online showing the ease at which you can get into one with a fire axe, it punches right through the side of them and is compromised that way.
Anything is better than nothing, and if it slows them down, that often makes the difference in them moving on or not, so even a RSC is good http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I have the exact same safe, and I'm equally impressed with mine.
Great buy! Great peace of mind!

Re: (00boraslow)

i got the safe, and brought it into my house, all by myself. i think ive earned myself a few beers
first, the contraption i put up in my crawl space:

i ran a 10,000lb tow strap from that, down the stairs:

to it, i hooked a 1 ton come-along:

here is the safe, as delivered:

get over here, ****!

tight fit:

stood up:

i had to bring it through a hallway (tight) and 2 rooms to get it to my closet:


it is REALLY nice....very well made it seems. here are the bolts. it has 14 of them:

3 hinges:

it has a dual entry system...you need the key AND need to know the code to get in.....there is a backup over-ride key too, just in case. i will keep that in a safe deposit box i think. it came with 2 sets of each key.

here are the keys, and the backup battery module...you plug it into the front if the batteries die inside:

inside the safe:

pistol holsters:

they also threw in a dehumidifier and a set of those push lights:


and finally, they thew in a huge magnet. america....**** YEAH!

I agree.
It just helps me rest easy knowing that whoever might wander in my house doesn't easily have access to my guns.
Especially because I have a roommate, and do not know all of their friends. Or when I go out of town, etc.

Why I got one too recently - increasing number of firearms, plus being out of town a lot...
Also great for storing various valuables. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Nice safe...despite all of the arguments...any safe is better than no safe - that coming from a guy who doesn't have one.
Professionals can get into ANYTHING. However, most guys would run in, see the safe...say screw it, and leave. Simple as that. Deterrent effect is excellent with anyone who's not a professional.
The average thug conversation rarely goes:
SMASH
"Oh heck yeah..."
"Bro, they got a safe...damn"
"Nah man, its a X-3550, second series...you can easily bypass that alarm circuit, and the weld fastenings here can be struck from this angle which we can use to leverage that ish, and pop the door off."
"..."
"What?"
