Default Anybody have a gun safe for sale?

I'm looking to buy a new or used safe. Anybody have one or have a recommendation for one? Nothing more than 24 long guns, but smaller would work as well.

I see several on Facebook marketplace. A 24gun will be small enough 2 people can handle it pretty easy.

A few suggestions I'll make...

buy bigger than what you think you need. A 24 gun safe might be able to hold 24 broom sticks... realistically it will hold 10 deer rifles.
Get digital/keypad entry. God forbid you need to get in there in a hurry... a dial combo is hard to open under pressure.
Fire rating, get the best you can. Chances of your house catching fire is far greater than your house getting broken in to.
Bolt it to the floor. All safes can be accessed with 30 minutes and an angle grinder to the rear wall. Bolt it down, or buy one big enough and put enough stuff in it that it can't be flipped over.
Paper documents. Store all important paperwork in ziploc bags... safes are not water tight, and if your house catches fire, the fire departments will focus that hose on the safe, forcing water in at the door. (Also if you're in a flood zone)

I bought a Liberty fatboy jr (48 gun) from Mike's. Great service, they delivered, and I'm very happy with it. (Just wish it was bigger.

Everything above is true. Mike's or Scott's has them. Do same as cash if need be.

I may have one soon still trying to make up my mind if I want to keep it and just get another one or just go all in on a safe to fit it all. All above is true (I can attest personally) and I wish I would have listened as we keep all sorts of stuff in mine from guns to reels to cameras and you run out of room quick. Shoot me a PM and Iíll let you know in about a week what my plan is if your interested.

Go at least 36. I have a 60 and a 56 and they don’t hold as much as you’d think.

I bought the 24 with a dial. I like it but wish I had bought different. Only upside is the wife not knowing the combination or if you have upped your investments. Buy bigger and don’t buy dial.

I've got a Liberty 36 with a dial which I read is much more reliable. Any gun that I need to access quickly is not in the safe so it taking a minute more to open is no big deal to me.
Whichever you get (dial or keypad) get the S&G brand which is on most of the better safes anyway.
