I bought what I think was one of the very best about 20 years ago when I got a Fort Knox Executive Series 36 gun fireproof model. The cost was painful - $2,300 - and that was in 1992. But I can sleep soundly knowing that my guns are safe. It's 6ft tall and 36inches wide and weighs 975lbs empty.

I really never looked much at other brands so can't say how they compare.

As long as the fire rating meets your criteria and the reviews on them look good, I'd say a safe is a safe.

TSC has decent priced ones as well as the RedHead series ones.

Some safes have lower burn times than others...some safes have more locking bolts than others and some have locking bolts on two sides rather than one...I've been looking at this one made by Fireking mostly because they also make safes for storing valuable recorded data like "tape backup cartridges" for your computer system.

I looked for about a year and a half and ended up with a Sturdy Safe. They don't do a lot of advertising but I have been more than happy with mine and they have a huge amount of safe info available on their website. The only mistake I made was buying one too small. Its funny how you want to fill all those empty slots every time you look in it.

Go to Tractor Supply and look at their Cannon safes. BY far, TSC has the best prices and about twice a year those prices get unbelievably cheap—relatively speaking of course. I bought my 24-gun fire-proof Cannon last year on sale for $599 and the next month it was on sale for $499 for like 2 months.

Tractor Supply runs good sales on Winchester and Cannon safes. Liberty saves are good quality especiality in high end models.
There is a safe dealer in Shelbyville with quality safes. I do not know his pricing.
Delivery costs can be very high from some dealers so be sure to check on that.

Tractor supply is where I bought my cannon 48 gun safe. On black Friday just about every year, they mark it down from $999 to $699. I really like mine.

Same here
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.

I bought a Yukon Gold, made by Browning a couple years ago from SW, and I really like it. It's the 6' model, and having that extra foot of space at the top is really handy for lots of stuff. About 1500.00 plus tax I believe.

I bought a Champion Safe from J Floyds Golf and Guns in Sevierville and traded two shotguns in for $500 off of the $1000 dollar price. It's a really good safe.

I have a Browning Silver SR42F. Love it! 6 foot tall, so I have alot of storage up top. Best thing is the extra storage of guns on the door. I think they have a patent on it, but not sure.
