As the author is a working LEO, and her article is aimed at that market, price is a definate consideration. The sad fact is, most LEO's are not able to afford, and may not need, a U.L. rated safe. But, the option was not presented, which tells me that she needed to do a little more research on the subject.

The data in the article has been posted on THR many, many, times.

Good point about not mentioning heavier UL safes although I think you're right in that this article wasn't really aimed at a commerical-level buying audience.

What I took from the article is that it is important to not merely be suckered in by price. While there are certainly some bargains out there and some companies charge more likely due to name recognition only, the buyer needs to be aware that price alone isn't probably the best feature when shopping for a safe.

Here is a good example of what might be one of the better deals from a well-known manufacturer. These look like what many companies were making before steel prices went crazy and forced makers to use thinner steel in an effort to keep costs down.
