    Ta-dah!

    Great news. The locksmith came by at 11:30am, opened it within two hours, and had it repaired by 3:30. Cannon had mailed him replacement lock parts, and now my safe is fully functional again.

    It's got a few "battle scars" from the vandalism, but it works and I won't need a replacement safe. The Cannon warranty will still be valid.

    I didn't watch the locksmith the entire time, but it was interesting to see what he did to get in. He had this probe that he could poke through the lock hole to see the damage on the inside, and I got to take a peek. I also asked if anyone had managed to break in a gun safe before, and he said yes. I won't go into details as to how. *shiver* Even though my Oxbow is the lower end Cannon safe, he said it was still built well.



    Steel shavings and fireproof insulation dust got all over my stuff, but it was easy enough to clean off. A few of my handguns had toppled over to the bottom, and nothing inside suffered any damage. I've cleaned up inside and sealed up my long guns in cases, ready for my move.

    Knowing your guns aren't tucked into a thug's waistband: priceless.



    Thank you Cannon Safes, and thank you Bear Claw Security & locksmith in Nashville, TN.

    Congratulations, Betty! Glad things worked out in the end.
    Nothing quite like the secure feeling a good safe gives you (especially one that has been "tested-tough" )
    My folks gave me a nice Browning gunsafe when they moved to Arizona....the safe was free, but I've spent a LOT trying to fill it!

    Betty,
    Wow ! Good to read that you and hubby are OK, and so are your guns.
    It makes me appreciate my American Security safe that much more. Stay safe...
