I don't have too much knowledge in safes but I've been shopping around for one. My dad has a fort knox safe and that's the only one I have experience with. From what I have been able to tell from my shopping around is safe is really one of those things that you get what you pay for and it is a fine line from how much protection you want and how much you are willing to spend. Think about it as a lot of people think about keeping ammo as a stockpile. Some people are happy at 100 rounds others aren't happy at 100,000 rounds. Me personally, I've decided that since I have a good bit of high end firearms I'm going to wait until I can purchase a high end safe. Especially since my dad doesn't mind me taking up some space in his safe until I get my own.
