What do you think about this safe?


#1

I found an older browning pro steel 23 gun safe on Facebook. $500 and it’s mine. Has the 1400 degree 45 min rating no extra shelves or anything. What do you all think? Is this a good deal? I don’t know much about the browning other than it was bought at Bass Pro.


#2

Especially because I can get a liberty of the same size delivered and installed for 1200


#3

Seems like a good deal.


#4

The only question I have is where did the drywall bords (gypsum) come from?
Some Chinese manufacturers use a dry wall board that when it out gasses over time the gasses can cause blued and some park finishes to rust.
That would be my biggest concern.


#5

I’ve bought two Winchester safes with the same temp and duration rating for $500 each brand new.


#6

I use a closet lol.


#7


Did pick this up at a loves truck stop for $30 on clearance. Keep your eyes open everywhere.


#8

I’ve been using the closet but my two-year-old is starting to get a bit more curious and it’s making my liberal wife nervous


#9

And they look like this!


#10

Looks a lot like mine, just mine is bigger.


#11

I would say it depends on the thickness of the steel used to manufacture the safe. if it is a thick gauge steel, it sounds like a great deal, paper thin guage steel maybe not so much


#12

My safes are in a large walk in closet. My future project is coming up with a plan to remodel the room with fire board & steel door. A room within a room. The best hidden safe is one no one knows is even there.


#13

Believe it’s 12 Ga.


#14

This isn’t a slight on anyone but it s a firearm owners responsibility to secure his weapons

Any safe is better than no safe gentleman


#15

Yes they do.


#16

Most safes use 14 to 11 gauge steel . No matter what gauge it is a determined thief with an angle grinder can get into them .


#17

The safes are rated similarly, I am guessing but it seems most grade safes are made by the same guys?


#18

This is made by prosteel


#19

I had an old wooden case with a glass front and added a padlock . I used it for years but then got thinking, two guns cost more than a decent safe , so I went ahead and brought the metal safe. Very glad I did.

A cop told me that safes are rarely cut open in the residence because the process is too noisy and time-consuming. In most cases, the whole safe is stolen and cut open later. It makes sense. If two or three guys can move a safe in, then two or three guys could move it out just as easily.

Bolt them down folks…or fill them with lead. :wink:
