I just wanted some experienced advice since I've never owned let alone even looked at safes before.
I'm just wanting something under $1k that one would think could deter the "common" criminal or some druggie relative.
TSC is having a Memorial Day sale:
$550 - Cannon TS6026E Challenger Gun Safe, 24 Gun Capacity
$650 Winchester® Gun Safe, 24 Gun Capacity
Unlike the Winchester, the Cannon lists an interesting Warranty:
Zero Cost repair or replacement of safe after a Fire, Natural Flood or Burglary attack?
Lock Warranty: 1 year labor, lifetime parts replacement
And Certified Fire Protection
1,200°F for 30 minutes
