hello...I am looking for a way to keep long guns "safe" without purchasing a $1000.00 safe. I have seen cabinets but I also do not want to display them. What about a pelican case or some other type of lockable box. I will be purchasing a mid size safe for handguns. any ideas will help thanks.
I found one in lowes. a liberty safe centurian safe $297.00 but you have to call and search for which store has one . these sell for $700. on sale at liberty for $550. look it up on the net this is top of the line.
i got one of these from cabelas for christmas. fits two handguns just fine. creative storage may get more.
I bought a StackOn gun cabinet off Craigslist for $40. They usually are on sale by me for $150 or so. Its more sturdy than I thought it would be.
My primary concern was keeping little fingers off the guns, and it does that well. I'm not as much worried about theft or fire.
I bought this at a local gun shop but you can find them online. This can be bolted to the floor, has a quick release four button combination lock and a shelf inside to separate two guns or a gun and other valuables. It cost $69.
Open with 2 guns
You can usually find Stack On and Sentry safes for under $500 at various sporting goods stores like Dick's, Sports Authority, Wal Mart, etc. I've even seen them at my local BJ's every now and then. So they're out there.
I bought this one at Academy and love it. It even comes with a small fireproof document safe to store in the big safe....and big enough to add a second shelf.
thanks everyone for the information.
What do you think of pelican cases?
I am a huge fan of Pelican cases! I have a few and love them. That being said, you're comparing apples and oranges. A case is, well, just a case. It it not a safe. It locks, but it is portable. Now if your only objective is to keep little fingers out and you're not concerned with theft or fire, then a Pelican will do the job. But if you are concerned with theft, then a safe, bolted to the floor, is the way to go.

I just got this one.
Can't beat the price and I love the spring opening, just in case I need to take out the trash.
This may be the wrong place to ask this question, but...
If you are out and need to lock up your pistol while you eat or something, do you have a safe in the trunk of your car? Obviously it is never ideal to leave a firearm in a vehicle, but it seems that sometimes its a necessity as I am unable to carry my weapon into a restaraunt.
Best to have the safe as out of sight as possible. and bolted to the metal somehow. They sell little safes with a steel wire but I don't know if I could trust them.
For in car check out Center Of Mass safes. Wife and I both have 1 in our cars and they are keyed alike.
That's what I use as well.

I'm having a wodden cabinet made for my home and will be screwed to the studs in a wall. Seeing how I'm having it made I choose to not have any glass because I'm not looking for a display case. I also bought the Stack-On lock so the door can be securly locked.
