My wife and I are looking for a bigger gun safe and seem to like the ones that hold 30/45 guns. We don't have a brand yet just the sizeof 60x40x27. Just curious what brand and size everyone is storeing there toys in and about how much. Thanks for any advise.

I picked up a Champion 50 cubic ft (72x40x29) for $1999 + tax = $2164 delivered and placed in the house.

Guy I bought it from is in the Houston area and delivered to Austin. He does the local gun show every month.

What ever the size you think you want take that and double it. Trust me.

WHAT THEY SAID ABOVE!

fort knox, browning, champion, whatever you buy, get it bigger than you think you need and check the fire rating and hope you never need it. My neighbor down the street came home Sunday and found he had visitors and they performed gun control on him. bummer....

I have the same safe as DPeacher. Very good value IMO.

I have a V-35 that I purchased form Lone Star Gun Safes. I am very happy with it.

My dad has a liberty and I wasn't nearly as impressed with the attention to detail on the interior.

Both are fine safes.

I am with Dpercher and Cockedand Locked CH 50 for me.
I liked the fire reating and 72" tall of the Champion is why i went with them.

Just rember to double the siz of whatever you need.

Been looking at more safes through the week and decided on at least 72" tall. I like that CH 50 but does it have three vertical compartments or two? Haven't seen one yet in person. There website pics. only show it having two. How are ya'lls set up on the inside? I would like to keep a section reserved just for ammo in case of a fire I don't lose all my stash.

The shelving is very modular. You can leave it all in, take it all out, or anything in between. You could also customize it with little effort.

There are two vertical bins on the bottom, one on the left, the other on the right, both or either one can be shelved (4 half width shelves) or left open to store long arms with their muzzles up. Above the bins, there are two full width shelves. The bottom shelf has an opening in the side and back to allow long barreled weapons to to poke through. The top shelf is solid. Everything can be moved to suit.

I like mine. its a dark gray, with "Liberty Safe" in black gothic script on the door, and chrome hardware.

Actually, it's kinda scary looking. Always a plus.

Went and looked at Liberty safes in Baytown today. They seem to be better suited for fire than the others so far but whats up with the fire rateing anyway. All the sales people I asked "how hot does a house fire get and how long is an average time of a house fire" it was always below the rateing on the safes. I'm not a fireman but wouldn't you think a house fire last more than 30 Min. What do ya'll think?
