90% of the people I know that have had their homes broken into(or a close friend of theirs)...have had people only break into the garage to steal tools or whatever else they happen to see that they like. I suspect most(not all) robbers in my area avoid going into the actual home due to the fact that 95% of the local population has more guns in their home than people. So if a robber only goes into the garage and sees a safe, odds are they are going to want to get into that fancy (or not so fancy) gun safe.I'm curious, what's the reasoning behind your decision? (I happen to agree with you.)
If not, you need to hit the gym It really should be no problem, I think you are underestimating your strengthThanks for all the replies guys. If I get the safe I linked, I think I can bring it up with an appliance dolly and another male. I'll put it upstairs.
My house is well alarmed (interior/exterior cameras, window smash sensors, door sensors etc) but it will still take the county 15-25 minutes to respond. They have horrible response times in Palm Beach County with the Sheriff's Office. I might put a siren inside the closet which will make it extra obnoxious if they are in there trying to mess with the safe.
I know that was an LOL post, BUT many years ago when Gramps only had a metal cabinet to store his guns he did rig it with a tear gas bomb, with a sign on the front in big red letters that said "DISARM". One evening when we were getting ready to go out, my youngest step daughter said something that made Gramps so mad that instead of disarming the bomb he jerked the door open.Maybe I'll build a mechanism that once the safe door opens during an alarm event, it will lock the door to access the room where the safe is and release tear gas for 10 minutes. lol
