Get one big enough to devote a section to important documents.
Passports, deeds, birth certificates etc. Great place to stow some valuables other than guns.
Mine has one section that a smaller fireproof (resistant) safe fits into.

I love gun safes.
I seriously just like to ogle them.
At 18, and still living with my dad, I can't exactly buy my own.
But there awesome.
Aside from safeguarding your weapons, you have to consider any liabilities for having your stolen weapons used in the commission of a crime or worse yet, used to kill an innocent person. In such an unfortunate event, anyone with any kind of assets will be sued. Do everything in your power to safeguard your weapons. Get a good safe now.
After I buy just one more gun, but before somebody breaks in and steals what I got.
When you do buy a safe, buy one that is larger than you need.
Believe me ... you will fill it.

I decided to buy a safe after kids starting arriving - now I have two.

Have you seen that safe on display at the SHOT Show.....the Colossus....
The thing is canary yellow.....stands 10 FEET tall (!!).....holds ~ 300 weapons.....OH.......did I mention.....it weighs.....2 TONS!!!
Cost??? No problemo......a mere $11,999!!!!!
Now, c'mon.....Who's gonna be the first kid on their block to actually HAVE one?????!!
When is it time to buy a safe??? If it's THAT one....the time to buy is.....BEFORE you build your new home.....AROUND IT!!!
Not having children at home any longer, my main worry is theft. But the gun safe would take the place of my gun cabinet which is in my den on the second floor. Any thoughts about weight and a second floor "installation"?
"gettin' there is half the fun."
I was amazed when I finally decided to buy a safe. I waited way too long. I almost filled up the safe with the guns I already had leaving me little room for future prospects.
