URI Forensic Sciences hosted a talk Mon night by a guy named Marc Tobias. Did not see it but the student paper reported that many are very easy to open.
Said Stack On can be opened by lifting one side a few " and dropping.
Any one have any info on this topic?
Thanks in advance.

all safes can be broken into if given enough time.....
a stack-on safe is really not a safe, its more of a locking cabinet. the lock is simple and the metal is thin.
that being said, the general consensus is to buy the best safe you can afford and put it in a hard place to get to.

It's about the cheap handgun safes that are avail and whether they are secure at all as implied by CA DOJ testing. The report was part of a Forbes article several weeks back.

Most "safes" aren't classified as safes, but as "Residential Security Containers" by UL. If you want container rated as a safe like a T-15 or T-30 rating, be prepared to spend more. Most RSC's can be easily opened with a sledge hammer hard hit to a corner
