    Talking Got a new safe (pics and puppy inside [literally!])

    JD came over today and helped me de-palletize the new safe. It's a Cannon Oxbow from Bud's Gun Shop - I paid $799 shipped to my garage.

    Here it is sitting in place and level - as of yet unbolted (and still empty).


    And opened... it's a 24 gun model (either 22 or 23 cubic feet, I forget offhand).


    Here's our puppy, Althea, inspecting the interior...


    ... and here she is ready to get out!


    I've got to say thanks to JD for coming by after work to help me shuffle it around the garage, but it's only fair - I helped him schlep his up three flights of stairs!

    Another smart gun owner...bought a safe!

    Now the dog?... My 125# Rhodesian would say, "It's what for dinner!"

    Possibly, but your Rhodesian would have to somehow remove the chihuahua/miniature pinscher mix that is chewing on its ear first.

    Yeah I lucked out on this end of the deal, and remember, it was down 1 set of stairs, and then UP 3 flights of stairs with that PITA landing in between.

    It's like I said, "Friends will help you move, REAL friends help you move safes."

    Very nice! I have a safe but it's not a very nice one. I'd like to have something nice so I can add my touch of decor to our living room. ;)

    One of the "diciplines" I had to learn was to make sure the safe was locked when leaving the house. A couple of times, we left the house and the safe was not locked.

    So to help remind myself that the safe was unlocked/opened, I took an old green T-shirt and cut a strip from it and tacked it to the inside of the safe door


    Now when I unlock the safe, I just throw over the top of the door the "green flag" which tells me that the safe is open, even when the door is closed. So if we walk out of the bed room, with just a glance, I can tell if I need to lock the safe..this works really well.

    I didn't even get to meet your puppy yet! He looks very confused to be in such a big box..lol.

    Glad that JD was able to go over and help. It was good for me too, it gave me a chance to get a little bit more of a nap before he came home..lol

    It looks nice! Now you can get all the guns the wife said you couldn't get till you had a safe.

    FILL 'ER UP!
