    The new safe, with PICS

    So, the new safe is in and all loaded up. I am already wishing I had bought the next bigger size! But, it is a vast improvement from what I had which as I have said was just a set of metal, locking gun cabinets.

    This thing tried to kill me and 2 of my sons moving it into the house from the garage but we beat it!

    Below are some pics for the viewing pleasure of the members here. As you can see, I need to lower the standoffs and I am going to cut some plywood and make 2 shelves that will go above the long guns on the big side to give me a bunch more storage space but that is all the fun modification stuff!

    Enjoy the safe porn!











    I'm sure some of you have much nicer and much larger safes but, for me this was a great deal. 24 gun, 500 pounds empty. I got it for $500 even. I feel much better now that my guns are locked up in an actual safe.

    Congrats on the new safe! I've moved a safe similar to that before but bigger, near death expieriences abound.

    Looks great... I think you're going to have to take the barrel off that shotgun, if you want to put shelves over the long gun storage area...

    I thought about that TX-JB but, if I move that shotgun (my turkey gun but the way) to the front left, and make the shelves set back from the front about 3 inches, it should be fine.

    HERE is a link to an easy and economical way to light your new safe if you feel the need (post #13)

    I did this to my safe for about $90. When you open the door the lights automatically/magically come on so you can find stuff in the dark

    Very cool Shadow. Very cool.

    I wouldn't mind doing something like this but I will need to go the "tap light" route since the Stack On safes have no hole for an electrical cord of any type. Believe it or not, this was actually a selling point for me. I didn't want any hole into the safe interior other than the holes through the bottom to bolt it down. The better sealed up it is, the more I like it.

    Thanks for the info though!

    TN Mike,

    Looks GREAT. Awesome looking safe! (I have the same one) Did you have a dolly available to move it? I used one of those cheap $30 dollies that you get at Walmart then I used a come along strap to somewhat secure it to the dolly. My wife and I moved it into the house, but we live in a one story home.

    I rented an appliance hand truck from Home Depot that had a weight rating of 800 pounds. It handled it easily. Plus it had the rollers on the bottom-back to go up or down stairs. It was still a bear getting it up the step from the garage to the interior of the house.

    Just curious - why is "sealed up" important to you?

    If I lived any place more humid than AZ I'd want a Goldenrod in my safe to minimize humidity.

    Put in a full sized shelf, just drill a few holes for the long guns..
    Works for me.

    That was my major hurdle as well, I just layed a piece of 2x4 against the entrance so it was more of a step up as opposed to the full step.
