So, the first two threads in this section of the forum kind of started this. Basically, what do you have for a safe(s) and what have you found to be the pros and cons of that safe. :confused:
I'm looking to buy and would like to hear some real world knowledge/ suggestions on which way to turn. What are some must have accessories?:cool:

Maybe someone got this figured out already, but Ill pass it on anyway.
Works great for me. I have 2 Winchester safes ,in my garagre in a Room double insulated, 7 ft hi ceiling, walls built to snug against the safes , after they were in and bolted.Have the golden rods in each.

But so I dont gotta open the door so much ,I added these little toys .

You put the transmitter inside the safe and put the base wherever you want to, and you can see the temp and humidity INSIDE the safe, without opening it.

My safes , stay at 42 to 50% humidity and about 45 to 55 degrees inside, all winter, and will run about 50-57% humidity and up to 90 degrees in the summer.
Thge room is 3ftX8ft and 7ft tall and I keep a 75 watt light bulb on all the time , and the room never goes below 40 deg , even on nights of 15 deg outside temps(rare).

Never seen any rust or any other problems.

Sportsman Steel Safe

Bought mine many years ago.
Because they are local.
Shipping cost you know.
But I am as happy with this safe as I would be with one costing A Lot More.
The los angeles area factory is close by,
I stop in and say hello once in a while,
and watch them being made.
If you are close to a factory you can watch yours being made,
Just the way you want it.

We have two Cannons with (medium size and big) with elec locks and one Centurian with a mechanical lock. I bought the Centurian so I would have weapons available until I could beat the locks off the Cannons in the event they were wiped out by EMP.
