I am looking at a Browning Safe. What do you all think about them?

I just bought one a couple of months ago. I am pretty impressed and several here recommended them. Which one are you looking at?

I bought the low-end priced safe by Browning. Still an impressive piece.

Depends on the purpose and goals to be met. Not all models from a given manufacturer suffice, almost irrespective of manufacturer. It depends heavily on how well-protected the safe will be, what you're intending on storing in it, whether you'll want fire protection, whether you're willing to sacrifice quality for ease of movement (ie, apartment to house to wherever as you move). In other words, not all "safes" are.

Whatever you choose: bolt it to the foundation of the house; keep it well hidden, both on installation day and every day; and maintain a monitored alarm system, since all a "safe" is designed to do is to buy time.

I currently have a 14 gun safe in the MBR walk-in for night stand gun, EDC, and HD shotgun.
I am giving serious consideration to building my own vault room in the basement. Cinder block walls, 1/4" steel plate liner on the inside, some kind of insulation/fireproofing, and a vault door from someone like Graffunder.
That way I can have a secure room to safely store all other firearms, powder, etc. That way valuable items would be more likely to survive a fire, and a powder explosion would be less likely to take down the house.
But aside from that, I also recommend a serious safe from someone like Graffunder.
