There Is not a gun safe made that a determined thief can not get into. Along with a fire rating ( which is the most important ) just look for the features that you want in a safe . I agree with the suggestion of buying a safe that is twice as big as you think you need . We all run out of space sooner than you think . In the event of a failure of a fire rated safe in a fire the safe company will replace the safe , not the contents .A friend had this happen in the Pigeon Forge fire, boy was he surprised . The safe fell through the floor into the basement and every thing in it was destroyed. A LIBERTY safe .
