...Just looking for some input on the best place to purchase a gun safe at a resonable price. I am currently looking at factory direct from FT Knox and Liberty, also considering Cabela's. I am looking for upper end safes that will hold 17-51 (depending on interior). Thanks for your help...

How much did they hit you for shipping? They don't list any prices.

I have an American Security, I got locally,it was a little more intially but no shipping and no tax. It is not the toughest ever built but it has been around for 10 years and my craps still mine. What state are you in?? Do you have an NRA membership or is there an AR15.com discount anywhere?? Ask for the deal.

I agree with the other members who stated that ordering direct will kill you with shipping. However, if you buy the same safe from a local distributor, the total cost should be cheaper. Basically, when the distributor orders the safe for you, it is shipped to him together with other safes that the distributor is also ordering at the same time. Thus the shipping rate per safe is much cheaper. Also, while you will have to pay him something to deliver it to your house, you’ll probably find the distributor a lot easier to deal with than a freight company when trying to arrange a convenient delivery. If you’re interested in Fort Knox safes, give them a call at their 1-800 number and ask for the name of the nearest distributor. [url]www.ftknox.com[/url]

I bought from Frontier. Very nice safes. A little bit more money but well worth it. They have a higher and longer fire rating than most. Also, the paint on these looks like a fine auto finish; very nice. [url]http://www.frontiersafe.com/[/url]

call AG English in OK. He has ads in all the gun rags. He is the largest dealer for most if not all the major safe makers. What you pay for shipping, you will save in sales tax. The largest Ft Knox from OK to Mississippi was only a couple hundred to ship. More like 12% or so, not 50%. Bass Pro has a house brand that is made by Granite ( make winchester too, I think). They have a good sale every so often on the 22 gun model. Good luck
