Don't have one but it looks cool and has good reviews. Is it gonna be big enough? I have a small key operated one but it will only hold small "things". It doesn't have room for extra clips, or anything larger than a basic 9mm "thing". Thought about a big safe? One that might hold future "things" especially if they have 16 inch or longer barrels- I have several friends with small safes, most are now wanting big ones. I need a big one now too, so if you go that route lemme know-maybe we can get a package deal. (recall my truck can handle picking up 3-4 large safes) Duncans in North Wilkesboro used to be the cheapest. Side note: theres some cool stuff on that site- but gotta keep $$ on the mustang right now.

There is a guy that reviewed the safe and posted it on Youtube. From the video it appears plenty big to hold several pistols. I too would like to get a larger safe for my toys, especially if I ever get a chance to get an AR or M1 Carbine...

The problem with these is they're really, really heavy. You need at least a two wheel dolly to haul it around. It'll probably slow you down when you need to lock n' load and return fire.

Ha! The Mustang has taken the funds away from my gun collecting and shooting! I haven't bought any firearms since I got back on the '66 2.5 years ago. I'm just glad I stocked up when I did. Few of my favorites in the safe is the M1 Carbine and my Garands. Also have an AR with a tax stamp so I can have a barrel shorter than 16". Got 3 uppers for that one, a .223 10.5", .22LR in 10.5" and a 5" .22LR with a 7" full float grip set up my silencer fits down into.
And that's just a small sample of my toys!
As far as the handgun safe, just make sure it's bolted to something so they don't run off with it to work on it later to get it open.

I'm interested in a small one for the night watchman as well. For the larger stuff and the rest of the collection I got a safe from Greg Drake of Drake Safe made right here in Roxboro NC. There's just about no gap around the door and it's 1/4 plate all the way around. The ones at the sporting goods stores have a giant gap around the door. There's plenty of youtube videos showing how easy it is to get into one of those. Greg has a fantastic product, but he's light on web presence. Best to go see him at one of the local shows like Raleigh Jan 19-20.
