Are they really worth having?
Don't know much about these things but was talking the other day about them to someone. They were telling me that they choose not to get one because fire proof only lasted 30 mins.

Maybe I can learn something here.

if they're in a basement and the fire burns mostly above them, that might delay the heat penetration until the FD can get some water on it.

If you have heirloom guns that insurance can't replace, this is one more step that could protect them from fire or theft as well as other valuables. A lot more protection then putting them in a closet. I have it on my want list....

I want one too but I want to be sure it going to protect. Or should I say I want to be sure its worth the money paying out for the ones that are fire proof or just buying the regular ones.
So how long does a fire last and hot much heat does a fire put out?
How long will the fire proof ones protect your firearms in case of a fire?

I've heard 30 minutes ratings on some units... I know that some posters got into a lengthy conversation about this a while back. Maybe someone will chime in. I could be a jerk and tell you to go search it, hehe. But telling someone to search it is not always such a bad thing. I searched it for you. Some have ratings of 1200F for up to 40-60 minutes. Get all that you can afford as one other poster mentioned, due to one gun alone being more valuable than the price of the safe. \:\)

I just got a Patriot 40 made by Canon Safes from the Co-Op a few weeks back. It is a 36 gun safe with a thirty minute 1200 degree rating. It has an electronic lock and is 60Hx40Wx24D.

I have one side set up for guns the other side configured with the shelving for ammo, important papers, and stuff. I got the pistol rack on the door.

I did a lot of research and discovered you can pay as much as you want for a safe. I finally settled on this one because it was 899.00 had most of the features I wanted, a decent fireproof rating and didnt break the bank. Safe weighs 600lbs empty

Cannon has the best warranty in the business as well!!!

And that right there is the primary reason I bought mine. Those are priceless so the money on the safe is more than worth it in my opinion. Mine's rated to 1400 for 30 minutes.

The normal house fire won't last much longer than 30 minutes anyway so yes, I say they are worth it.
Place it (bolted down) on an exterior wall and the heat won't get as bad on it either.
A friend of mine has a Browning and it is a bad dude that's for sure.
I need one but just haven't messed with it yet.

I got the same safe a few weeks ago, and the price is right!! It has plenty of room. I am 100 percent happy with it!
