I’m going to be looking at purchasing a new gun safe in the next few months as my current one is very full and I’m looking for something that is going to take me a while to fill.
However, I’m struggling with what my best option is. I want a large safe (20-30 gun) and I’m happy to pay around $1000. I might be able to stretch that if I have to. So far, I’ve seen (in person) Lokaway which seem really great quality but are probably out of my price range unless I go for something smaller. Spika which seem fine but I think are a bit expensive for what they are, and Winchester, which a local store sells and has a big safe for $995. The guy at the local store told me that he rates Spika over Winchester as “they are a much stronger safe” but the cynic in me says he’s always going to say that given the price difference.
In addition to these, I’ve found a heap of other brands online which I haven’t seen in person. Finally, there is Fort Knox (https://www.safesgun.com.au/products/products/30-Gun---Rifle-Safe---Ammo-Box--Carpet-Lined--Key-). I get that it is Chinese crap, but isn’t the Winchester (and others!) going to be the same thing but with a recognisable sticker on the door?
What safes does everyone have and what do you think of them?
