    I've got an overflow issue with the primary safe. Need another one.

    I'd rather have two 500lb safes (grade 8 bolted to slab foundation) that I can move. Having a 800lb monster isn't in the cards for me. Any opinions on this one?
    12Ga steel, fire rated, dial lock w/key. Primary defense is crackhead burglary/smash and grab. I went and looked at one and it seems pretty solid. I understand that no safe will protect against a skilled thief, I just want to make the job hard enough so they choose another house.
    I can get this one for $550 cash.
    My "good" safe has the electronic dial and I really like it, not one problem in the seven years I've had it. I've used dial locks before and don't mind them, they just aren't as fast as the digital. One downside to the dial is I have to pay a locksmith if i want the combo changed, but I don't anticipate needing that done.

    Ive got the same make safe as you are looking at. It is pretty nice. Has a good amount of room and is def a heavy beast. It has internal hinges and 3 large locking bolts.
    The door alone probably weighs in at about 75 lbs Id guess.

    I have a safe and need another but I don't have a place to put it right now. I think the Centurion is a good box. I would shy away from the electrononic key pad in favor of the tumblers of the old style. But that is just me.$550.00 sounds like a good deal ...will they deliver???? Free.!!!! That would be important to me.
    Just my thoughts.

    The one I looked at had 4 1" locking bolts. Is yours the D20?

    I've got one of those. No issues out of it - but the center "sportsman" rack/shelf is a pain. I've been planning to cut it up for a while now but haven't gotten around to it. I have a hard time getting 6 long guns in to 1 side as it shipped.

    I may just call them up and see if I can get the standard "U" cutout shelf instead.

    And YES the CN20 has 4 bolts.

    I have the same exact safe for one of my personal safes. So far so good..but luckily have never had to put it through someone trying to break in it, or a fire.

    I bought my Liberty Centurion through Costco. I believe it is 30 cf? I paid $799 delivered upstairs. I hope I never have to get that thing outta there, will be tough. They run safe specials all the time. Different models/manufacturers, good deals and will deliver. Talton's quoted me $300 delivery for less than 20 miles.
