Re: Gun Safe
Depends on what your needs are. Have you checked tractor supply or lowes (check online for both). TS has some nice cannon safes that look like they might be in your price range. If you are looking for classy, high gloss paint,S&G locks and pinstripes, you might need to bump up your wallet limit a bit.
Also check out craigs list, there seems to be a fair amount of used safes on there.
