[accessories] D&H 5.56 30 Round Aluminum Magazine $6.99
[Handgun] Sig Sauer P365 (with XRAY3 Night Sights) - $499
If spending that much also look at Liberty Fatboy line
I think the fatboy line are great safes but this safe will give you over 30% more interior space than the fatboy safes which MSRP for around $2500.
Also if you have a mosin collection or other long surplus rifles (like my swiss 1889) consider the safe height. The fatboy line is on the short side for large safes and could present problems with accessing longer guns if you have full width top shelf. The liberty 1776 50 safe has a good amount of height for around the $2000 price point but still falls a few cubic feet shy of available space compared to this bighorn safe.
So is the 1776 and fat boy jr comparable? Coastal farm and ranch has them on sale pretty frequently for 1200ish. I’ve seen lately that they are now offering the 1776 instead of the fatboyjr .
Fatboy jr only has 19 cubic ft of storage space vs 33.4 cubic ft in this Bighorn. The 1776 Model 50 would compare in size to this Bighorn but has a few cu ft less space. The 1776 model 48 is comparable in storage space to the fatboy jr with 17.4 cu ft of space.
Good to know. Wasn’t sure if the fat boy/fat boy jr were being replaced with the 1776.
For new safe buyers. Buy a safe that is at least twice the size you think you'll need. Otherwise you will be having to store your uppers, buttstocks for lowers, air rifles, muzzleloaders and shotgun barrels outside the safe. Don't ask me how I know this. Just buy bigger, you'll thank me later.
This guy speaks the truth. I had 2 Mosins and an Type 63 SKS stolen from my house because they wouldn't fit in my safe.
Buy larger. You won't regret it.
Bought a "14 gun safe" thinking there is no way I will fill it. Put 8 in and was sure it was packed to the brim. Now 19 are in there and I am a safe tetris grand champion.
I hate the safe tetris game. It's almost as bad as the chest freezer tetris game when you need that turkey from last year.
Correct, but make sure it is small enough to put in your desired location in the house.
I’ve learned the hard way 😫
Honestly, I feel like it's worth getting two smaller safes rather than one massive one. Easier for someone to install themselves and technically more secure as you've got to break into two of them.
Never thought of that but that but yeah. I guess the only downside is a slightly bigger footprint for the same amount of storage
Or just go with a modular safe.
I have a snap safe and I love it. Only took two people to move to the basement and then assemble!
I'm renting a house and will probably be moving soon. Knowing that I'll be able to disassemble and move the safe with the help of just one person makes that a little less stressful.
The price will be $1500 for members. Costco's cheapest membership is $60 so join up and save paying the non-member surcharge of $75. That will save you $15 and you'll have a year long membership.
If you have a friend or family member with a costco membership ask if you can use their membership number for the purchase. We let my adult son use my wife's number for a laptop purchase. He signed up for his own online costco acct (which is free) and just entered my wife's costco number. He had it delivered to his own address without problems.
Kinda surprised more people do not have Costco memberships.
the closest costco to me is 45 minutes away... and im not in bubmlefuck either... i am about 90 minutes from philly, 2 hours from NYC... pretty suburban area... so it doesnt surprise me at all.
Costco is antigun and has it in their membership agreement that they can revoke your membership if you're caught with a weapon in store. Only an asshole would give them money
I wouldn't say a business not wanting firearms in store makes them anti gun. Are all bank owners anti gun? Or hospitals?
Wait, not all banks are anti gun. Neither my credit union or my bank has asked me not to carry, and I've open carried at both.
State and federal law is different, turdbrain. I mean damn how dumb can you be? LMAO!!!!
You're blocked so don't bother responding idiot
I guess you have a lot more businesses to boycott then. It's almost as if people have a right to dictate what happens on their private property as much as we have a right to carry.
They have that to CYA and placate the normies. I have yet to see a Costco that was posted with any kind of signage, even in states where they hold force of law.
As someone who just lugged a 130 pound stack on upstairs by himself, how would you even get this half ton safe into your house?
I paid a moving company $200 to move my safe from my driveway to my office.
Worth it, fuck that shit
LOL, yup. My last safe was a concrete filled TL-30 beast from AmSec that weighed over 4500 pounds empty. It was worth every penny of that $200 to not have to move that fucker myself.
I'd kill for one of those safes. sigh I just got a good RSC not too long ago.
Honestly, an RSC is fine for 95% of people, especially if you add a safe monitor that will contact you whenever the safe is opened or moved or whatever. That plus a good home security system and you're set.
The safe was a "business expense" for me that lowered my insurance premiums by $2,000/year, so it'll pay for itself in about five and a half years.
how did it lower that much??
I'm not going to go into details on Reddit, but that safe holds a lot more than just guns.
Yeah, I got a good RSC from a low-volume maker here in central IN. Thicker side and door steel than most all the other RSCs in the same price range + a much better mechanical lock. It's lagged to the floor.
Random question - do you know if safes that heavy can go up/down stairs? I'm in the market for a safe, but I'd want to put it into my basement.
That entirely depends on how sturdy your stairs are, good sir.
Probably not though, unless they were designed for it.
If your ground floor is on joists, it might be cheaper/easier to cut a hole in the floor and lower the safe to your basement. I live in Florida, the land of big tiddys, hurricanes, and houses built on slabs. I'd make friends with a general contractor in your area if you want a safe that heavy.
And now the moving company knows you own a bigass safe and they know what the inside of your house looks like right?
That's the conundrum I have about hiring outside help.
And the people you bought the safe from know where you live and that you bought a safe.
And your neighbors probably know you have guns.
And so does the ATF and whoever does background checks in your state if you've ever bought from a FFL or have a CCW.
And you post in Reddit gun subs, a social media site owned and run by leftists.
And if you have kids, you can bet they're going to mention "Daddy's guns" at some point, even if it's innocent.
And if you're registered to vote, your home address is likely public knowledge.
Some of you folks take the PERSEC paranoia a bit too far. I'd rather have a safe and have someone know I do, than NOT have a safe and have some lucky burgler find the guns in my closet. Same with professionally installed security systems.
Sure, but you have a monitored alarm system right? And a large dog? And no one knows the combination to the safe, but you? And it's bolted to the floor?
I think you're reading into that a little to far. For what it's worth I was able to find a safe installer that only hires veterans and former PD and they do background checks on everyone. But at the end of the day my dog, alarm system, the safe being bolted to the floor and me being the only person with the combo should be enough.
A furniture/refrigerator dolly and a friend (or two) make easy work of this. Most dollys have belts which allow you to slide up/down stairs. Once tipped up, most safes are remarkably easy to move which, when you locate it in its final resting place, is good reason to BOLT IT DOWN!
If you cant move it yourself, most moving companies will move smaller safes (less than 1000 lbs). My thoughts: why advertise what safe you have and where it will be located to unknown people?
Well, shipping and handling is included in the price.
No way they're bringing this inside your house. Most likely just dropping it at the curb, maybe bringing it up your driveway for you if you're lucky.
I hope nobody I know buys one of these...
this shipping is curbside. If you are lucky and tip the guy you might get someone who will drop it in the garage but no guarantees
Not sure about this safe, but on some larger safes the doors are removable. The doors are very heavy so removing it reduces the weight by a good bit. Basically just open the safe door and lift the door straight up and it will come out. Definitely not possible single handed though.
If this is going anywhere other then a basement or flat on the slab, be sure the floor is re-enforced underneath it, or at the very least it is across 2 (or more) joists to distribute the weight, and try not having it in the center of a long joist run if possible (closer to exterior wall, or in the center over the main support beam)
A helpful aid when moving a safe of that side is to use pieces of pipe as rollers. 3 guys and 3 or 4 pipe rollers can make moving half a ton a breeze.
3 guys and 3 or 4 pipe rollers
I think I saw that video years ago. Do not recommend.
Better buy a backup keypad now...these things DO fail and the only way in short of drilling is another keypad.
Or spend another $100 and get a S&G mechanical lock.
