    Does anybody have experience with Liberty brand gunsafes? They're made here in TX, and I'm thinking of getting one, but wondered about their customer service, warranties, etc. If you've had a poor experience with them, who would you recommend instead?

    Thanks in advance.

    Liberty Safe

    I could be all wet with this, but I believe Liberty Safe is based in Utah.

    The Garland showroom of Texas Safes is, IIRC, named "Liberty Safe of Texas" or something similar. Although they also carry Sun Welding and 1 or more others I can't remember (at least at the Loop 12 location).

    Anyhoo, I just bought a Liberty Colonial 23 (cheap one) from TSC Sales (the Loop 12 North showroom). I'm as happy as a clam with it but must admit I don't have all that much to compare it to. The dealer was great, delivery was when promised, installation went without a hitch; they put down plywood before rolling it in and didn't crack a single tile in my mostly tiled house. Bolt-down was part of installation. The installers took the time to school my wife in its use.

    I'd do it again in a heartbeat - they're typically at the local shows, I'd assume Big Town this coming weekend is no exception. The prices are "in there" with the best I could find on the web.

    Warrantee extends to covering repair after failed or successful break-in for anything not covered by your existing insurance. The warrantee does not include freight back and forth like one mfgr I found (sorry, can't remember the name). Mine is new - I haven't had occasion to test the warrantee and hope I never will.

    I bought one - best price, good quality, great buy. I'll be needing another safe soon, and guess what I'm buying again? :D

    I've had one for close to four years without any problems. When it's time to get another safe they will certainly be near the top of the list. (or maybe I'll just get a vault door instead and build a secure room. Probably cheaper in the long run.)

    Liberty, Browning, Champion were all started by the same guys, IIRC. They started one and sold it, and then started the next. Their latest endeveour is Champion. I did a lot of research on safes before I bought my own last month and went with Champion. If you are in or near Houston, I highly recommend Lone Star Gun Safe. Those guys are great to deal with. They delivered an 1100 lb. safe to me in Beaumont (90 miles from their store) and set it up for a $100 fee.

    I have one and I don`t think it has the best interior. Then again I don`t have anything to compare it to so I may be all wet. Otherwise, I`m ok with it.

    Rock Jock makes a good point. They`re not easy to transport and install so that`s important. Unless you`ve got a truck and a few good men, you`ll want to check out that aspect thoroughly.

    You really should get one about twice the size you think you need. All that closeness in a nice warm interior seems to cause guns to multiply like rabbits.:D

    The Liberty is my first, so I can't compare it to anything else. My only complaint is that there aren't enough guns in it.

    Seriously, though, it does seem really well-made. I bought mine used, and quite a few of the Liberty dealers I'd talked to around the country had used models in stock. Just something to consider.

    My local dealer..

    is one of the biggest Liberty dealers . Mine is a Liberty. We have virtually zero problems.

    Nobody's said so far, but make sure the safe is plenty big. If you have 12 guns, get a 20 gun safe...I think they're sized for BB guns.

    Get the best fireproof rating. I'd get the electronic lock...lots faster and less hassle. Also get a goldenrod.

    I've got two. One that's been on the show for years... and another that's full of my stuff. I like 'em.

    But go have a look yourself.

    Here's Change Number One:

    The American Shooter Website belongs to the production company that is NOT going to continue to produce the show.

    Instead, OLN has given me that assignment so I'm putting together a new production company.

    The point: The American Shooter website will not have any new information on the new shows.

    Instead, we'll be using my site for communication:

    www.JimScoutten.com

    So start with that.

    Then start telling me what you want to see.

    Nominations are open.

    Jim

    I recently added a Liberty Franklin 35 to house my growing collection. You won't go wrong with a Liberty.
