Hey.
I am looking to buy a new bigger box for the toys.
Anyone have a good or bad experience?
Anyone been robbed and have a safe brand to avoid?
I am thinking of a large box this time nominal 20 guns.
Combo lock, digital or keys (s)?
All help appreciated.
cheers
D.

I have one with digital lock, which I find great as no keys to hide.
Definitely minimum of 5 bolts and bigger is better!! Cheesy Cheesy

While this is probably better than leaving the keys in a drawer this does mean your gun safe is as safe as your little safe.  If it's one of those little pistol safes then there are videos on you tube on how to open them by hitting them the right way with a rubber mallet...

Whatever you get make sure you can dynabolt it to the floor or lock it onto a stud in the wall of whatever room youíve got it in - 10mm bolts are the recommended size.

I sell some awesome E cat gun safes.
Have 10 & 20 gun models which are both fire rated.
They also have LED lights inside which turn on when you open the door.
They have powerpoints inside which you can use the optional dehumidifier or charge expensive electronics.
Top quality, they have a digital combo lock which makes it super easy.
Police approved as E/B/C cat.

I will be at the Sika Show if you can wait till then, maybe bring a trailer?
Otherwise I'm sure we can organise to get it to you.

There is no legal minimum.
The police recommendation is 3mm.
