    With all due respect, Scorp.
    Yes, I have posted this before, but we have some new members that may not have seen it.
    This is NOT an internet photo !! This is a federal government photo of MY SAFE !


    THERE ARE NO SAFE GUN SAFES !!! If the government wants in, they shall get in !! WITHOUT A VALID WARRANT !!!
    Just my bitter opinion !

    I have an 6' high old bank safe from the early 1900's. Manual combo lock and basically a 4'x2.5' steel box encased with 10" of concrete. Yeah, you can get into it but you'll need some high explosives. SOmething new that is even close to comparable would go for north of $8000

    Here is what it looked like (broken handle) after the fed's moved it, for better access, just before the break in.
    This is an official federal photographer's work, nice huh ?

    You guys see what Taez has seen. With that said, If i were in the market for one I would look at the Rhino safes.

    If your house is on a pad or has a basement... I've been dreaming of putting an in floor safe in.

    That is the best way to go. I did that years ago. Use a concrete saw, pull out the concrete, dig the hole, set the safe in it so the door is just below surface, pour concrete all around it, just short of the door. Then cover it with the most unobvious cover possible.
    Mine was in the garage, covered by an oil leak pan & the car on that. If we took that car, we would park the other one on it.

    Really, given enough time, unless a safe is rated TRTL 60x6, the bad guys if prepared with the right tools can get in to almost any safe.

    I have a customer who owns a jewelry store in a strip mall. It's pretty common sense that your safe should not be placed backing up to a shared wall with the business next door. Some people think it will never happen to them, though. He had motion detectors in the store and an alarm on the door of the safe. The kind that if the door broke contact with the alarm, if the door is opened the alarm goes off.

    So, this guy had a good safe, but not one like pictured below. They broke into the restaurant next door to him, cut through the shared wall to reach the back of his safe. Used a concrete cutter to cut through the back of his safe, thus not setting off the motion detectors in his store or breaking the contacts on the door of his safe. Opened up his safe like a sardine can and cleaned him out without ever setting foot in his store.

    ISM Super Platinum (UL TRTL-60x6)
    The ISM Super Platinum is considered the highest level security safe in production today. It was developed based on the needs to have an extremely secure safe, capable of resisting the most sophisticated torches and electro-mechanical tools in use today by the most sophisticated burglars. This particular safe is sold predominantly to government agencies, the diamond and financial industries as well as to individuals who have items of extraordinary value.

    They forgot about SAWS !!!

    I repeat !

    Any safe can be opened. All a safe does is buy you time to discover the theft while still in progress or dissuade a lazy thief.

    I had to laugh you mentioned Empire Safe. I ride the train with one of the master locksmiths from Empire nearly everyday. I love the celebrity stories of how they locked themselves out of the safe or they need to have a combination changed ASAP because they are ditching a significant other.

    I'm still waiting to snag a Empire second hand trade in at a good price.

    Sorry,maws trying to say I only use my safe for my legal papers like wills and power of attorney and some of my extra guns

    Valuables are much "safer" when hidden. I think the safe is a big target and not alL that hard to get into

    True. Smaller safes well hidden offer the best protection. Don't put your safe in your bedroom closet! (Advice from my buddy at Empire) That's the first place burglars look for them even when they're hidden.

    One of the best places my friend the locksmith said he saw was a floor safe hidden under a safe. Who'd think to look under the safe you thought was the primary target?

    I have wondered about storing reloading powder in a safe. It would keep it away from the kids so they can't do stupid stuff with it. But it would make a bad day for someone trying to get in with a torch.

    I think it would be wise to put a warning label on the safe stating that it contains reloading powder. Even if I haven't actually moved it there yet.
    If it is intentionally dangerous, yes.
