That's a tough call! I would hate to drill into the basement floor for fear of water penetration. At 400 lbs. maybe you could put it on a base, attach it to the base and secure the base to the floor?good ole boy said:On a cement baement floor.Average size say 400#.
Yeah, was gonna post this too - just saw it last week, and they have a lot of good points. This pix of safes that were cut into, pried on, burned and wheeled out the door with a cart will get your attention. If you can wheel it in, they can wheel it out faster - they're not worried about your walls or scratching the safe. If they can't do it fast, they will knock it over just to get back at you and do some damage. Bolt it fast in a place that is outta site, hidden if possible, buy the best you can get and research them thoroughly. A dry, heated, non-basement, concreted floor area would probably be best, with proper dehumidification.Biggie said:
This was what I was going to post after Chiefs comment. I have run volly for quite a few years, and have seen very few times where the guns made it out of a "fire-proof" safe in usable condition.steelstalker said:As for fire. These "fire rated" safes hold up for a while but if your house is a fully developed structure fire it only makes a nice oven for your guns. The will help protect from heat for a while if then FD is there and get the flames out fast.
