My local Walmart has a Sentry Safe that is DOJ approved for under $400. It is actually pretty nice.

Doesn't look like there is a list on the AG/DoJ Firearms pages.

Everything listed here is safe. I believe only cabinets are not considered safe, due to the lock.

Cheapest safe so far, unless you get a cube.

The cheapest I found is a Homak 8-gun steel cabinet, on sale at Turners for $119.95. Not enough safe for me but you asked for the cheapest, and it is DOJ approved according to the Fall Flyer ad I have right in front of me.

Turners also has Sentry and AMSEC safes on sale through Sept. 17.

id go with the homak, then stick it inside a closet you dont need and put a locking door knob and even better a deadblock on the closet door.
a heavier door would be even better, with internal hinges, then put pins in the hinge that stick out and into the door so they cant pull the door out.

that oughta slow'em down a bit

Man, they're all so huge and heavy.

Thank you all for the feedback. Looks like i'll go with a homak.

Huge & heavy? What's your ideal safe?

The bare minimum requirement.
Sorry to say, I'm still a college student, and plan on moving out soon enough. My old bedroom is on the 3rd floor of the house, and I'd hate to see a huge safe crashing through one day..(the house just doesnt seem that sturdy..lol)

For long guns, the Homak would suit any needs for being portable. It also is on the cheap side. Be sure to bolt it down.

When you upgrade later and buy a big heavy rated safe, the Homak can become your ammo locker.

It feels good having a safe. Stuffing pistols in the cushions of your couches when you leave for the weekend was getting old. I would find some odd places to hide rifles in my home. I love my safe!

you gotta be shittin me!

California has safes that are DOJ approved....
I'm guessing you guys have to pick one from their list?????

Does the state government get a kickback?

Forgive my ignorance, someone please fill me in.

They get kickbacks on every approved pistol. The safe deal is different, they have a list of requirements, that meet most any safe. The questionable ones are the cabinets which must have a certain type of lock.

Now doesnt the Homak cabinets fall under a different catagory? Lock boxes.
I dont think they are the same as safes.

Are you married? You know there is no such thing as an unneeded closet!

Kmart has the 12 gun Homak for 169.

I bought it to store ammo.

Unfortunately, the way the shitheads in Kali wrote this POS law, gun cabinets are rated the same as gun locks. Having one doesn't give you the long term ability to buy a gun without also having to buy an approved locked.

Was at Walmart tonite, they have a real nice Sentry gun safe for 200. I counted 14 spots for rifles, but it was advertised as being a 10 gun safe.
