    Can a man find a decent gun safe for about $750? I'm looking for one in the Memphis/ Little Rock vicinity. Thanks

    Well, yes I do. Maybe even a Liberty Centurion? I just recently bought
    a Liberty 25 gun glossy Colonial series, that was on sale for $999.88
    + tax. I don't know what my final cost will be on it, cuz I get a huge
    discount as this was bought from my employer. We are in the sporting
    goods and/or gun shop business. I think our Liberty Centurion's are on
    sale for $799.88?

    I could by a Winchester safe at Sam's Club, but the wife has agreed to let me spend a little more for a somewhat better safe. I have located a safe at a place called Fort Thompson Sporting Goods in Little Rock. Has there name on it, but made by Browning. 1200 degrees F/30 minutes 12/24 interior 60x30x22 510 lbs. for $649. They are out of stock today, but they are expecting some in 2 weeks.

    Enlighten me on the Liberty Centurion

    Liberty Centurion Gun Safe Features:

    3/4" body construction
    12 gauge carbon steel body
    4" composite door
    fire rated: 1200 degrees for 30 minutes
    entry level fire/heat protection of one layer of 5/8" fireboard

    UL rated residential security container
    triple case hardened steel plate to guard against drill attack on lock
    5-1" diameter locking lugs
    cam drive lock with slip clutch
    UL rated S&G Group II security
    3 in 1 Flex Interior
    3-spoke handle

    FootNote- This is considered by many to be the entry level of gun safes,
    at bargain prices. I went one step further, and bought the 25 gun Colonial series that has many more features, and weighs 565 lbs.

    If you buy a safe you might want to investigate an IRS regulation that permits you to deduct, once and only once, the cost of a safe for the purpose of providing a secure place to store your tax records. I have only heard rumors of this regulation's existence and I don't have a reference for you. It has the ring of truth though, and is probably worth investigating for such a substantial investment.

    If it's true, deduct the cost of the safe and make sure you throw your tax records in there along with whatever other valuables you deem appropriate. :D
