      I swear if you bond wood all around that safe that got mangled it would take them so much more time. Just make a laminate of wood(not particle board) with a plate of hardenend stell or hardened steel rods.
      Torches trying to cut thought wood (there isn't even a video on that). Circular saw for wood hits a hard steel rod some teeth are coming off. A grinder with whatever attachment to get thought just that one obstacle going to take time.

      OBVIOUSLY, It's going to take a while to make the safety improvements to be highly effective. There is also the advantage ,if one desires to make It, a brand new puzzle to brake through.

      My mind is absolutely teeming with ideas (same subject but a way more effective deterrent).

    I am more concerned with flood than fire. I’ve had weapons damaged from water because I cannot get to it for two weeks after the flood.

      Being a welder and metal fabricator, thank you for the help picking the right safe. Also this has given me several ideas on instillation and preventing the wrong people from accessing the contents of the safe.
      Nice job!

              Good video guys I like how you call it the way it is people beat me up no I don't have a Fort Knox but I have a Liberty Safe I don't know how it compares to the Fort Knox but I can tell you the little tin boxes at the big box stores mine's a little bit better you get what you pay for I seen another video here how the guys talking smack about you being a firefighter this that and the other thing and no safe anybody build is really worth anything far as fire goes and just started on you should watch couple of these it's amazing his safe is a bolt together not sure if you bolted it to the floor or the wall whichever floor being the best but yeah it amazes me how ignorant people really are that's the only reason China is so wealthy cheap cheap cheap cheap cheap cheap like the guy said holy toledo $11,000 but that person isn't putting in little BB guns in pellet guns and Kmart gold jewelry it probably holds half million million and diamonds gold precious metals whatever tell people what's the value of all your guns that you're going to put in that safe the guy I was talking to at Liberty Safe distribution place was showing me the various sizes and costs I want end up with two safes but in those two safes say I have 20 weapons and let's say each weapon is $500 a piece which is very low if anybody knows weapons so in the two safes at minimum I'm storing at the prices given and in quantity $10,000 worth of weapons so isn't it worse spending a reasonable amount of money to protect that value

                  "better than what you had which was nothing"
                  That's how a lot of people including myself used to consider the situation. But not entirely true when you break down the variables here...
                  *--* You've got valuables/firearms/jewelry etc.
                  *--* You want them somewhere secure yet at your convenience.
                  *--* You think hiding your things under the mattress or in closet is getting old, and need to get serious about it.
                  *--* You buy a reasonable price safe from a local shop.
                  *--* You save money by using your friend Bill's truck and trailer to get safe to your garage to unload.
                  *--* You and Bill get safe into house and in place after about 2 hours of scratching your head, measuring doorways 2 or 3 times over, the wife suggesting something which probably won't work but your frustration level at that time won't let you even consider that as an option even if it will likely work (sorry ladies, we can't show lack of determination), and of course that trailer backing into the driveway from a truck that your neighbors don't recognize as yours while a trailer attached to it with a tarped (or untarped) load aboard draws a bit of attention, possibly, Gary from 2 houses away who usually just drops by to ask nosey questions and get on your nerves a bit, he doesnt offer to help, just wants to inquire, "so.. what ya got there? A new hot tub or something, you don't want all of us neighbors to be asking if we can come over on the weekend and hang out or what.. *chuckles & friendly nudge*, just messing with ya, but really what.. what ya got on there" he asks.
                  You know whether you tell him now or he pretends to mow his yard for the next hour he's probably going to see a hint of a safe and recognize it as such. So you te him, or you tell him to get lost and it's a big surprise. Either way his lawn got mowed for an hour and you got the thing into the house with probably 7 sets of eyes and from different angles all calling each other asking what they know, and "is he moving?, why would he move, the kids are in school, he just renovated the loft, I thought we were good neighbors, I think we are good neighbors, why would he... Wait he's not moving he's bringing something in, I'll call you back Margaret Gary just left there I'm gonna go ask him, before he starts the lawnmower again."
                  *--* Happily installed, with a feeling of security and safety, you mention it to a few people and show it to a few friends or family, what could it hurt right? You're *SAFE* and *SECURE* and better than that nothing you had previously, right!?

                  Well, no.
                  Basically, what you did is put all of your treasures into 1 chest. You took your whatever items you want protected and threw them into a box, so-to-speak.
                  What perfect thing for any would be thief, to know that fact. Now instead of searching dresser drawers, cabinets, under the beds, in closets, they look for one thing and it usually stands out a bit from the rest of the room (unless your room looks like the one in this video which was ALL SAFES.)
                  Thief then just needs to remove safe or remove items after getting access to safe.
                  That happens a few ways as described in video, usually fastest way is with a crowbar or 2 and 2 guys, first by knocking the safe onto its back, (door up).
                  From there a cheap one might last 20 seconds before your moms engagement ring and your great grandfather's heirloom rifle which was meticulously cared for by his son and then your father, now you, and would've been given to your son as well, given this door was a bit beefier, but hey 700$ was too good to pass by!
                  So they left your passport and some old family photos, of uncles you can't remember the names of without looking at the back of the picture. But the shock and disbelief of the whole ordeal is worse than the fact someone broke in to begin with, why this house why nothing else is touched or opened or searched through, even your change you bring home from work everyday and toss into a small fishbowl on the dresser less than 5 feet from the safe was still sitting there next to your Timex watch, nothing l valuable but still, easy enough a few dollars for the 2 seconds it'd take to snag and pocket before walking out the door with the real items of interest. (not your interest, forget all of those things, they are gone forever and you'll never get them back, ever. Even if no one in town or the country will buy those things, the criminal will throw them in a river before ever dropping them in your doorstep in the cover of night.)
                  So, how does this happen. More ways than the vintage family recipe book that your wife insisted on being in the safe had speckled stains and smelled like imitation vanilla and often a few grains of salt could be felt imbedded into the cover and pages from the usage throughout the years gone by.
                  I won't go into any sort of lengthy detail on the many ways I can think of right off the top of my head, don't want to make this reply any longer than just the barest of minimum information required and nothing more than a reply from any average-joe, so now that we have that out of the way and you realized that last part was some serious sarcasm... You..did.. catch that, right?
                  Neighbors, friends, family members, exs, don't care about your stuff as much as you do! Just the same as old lady down the streets cat got out and hit by a car, but you don't cry over it, but if it was yours, different story.
                  He tells so and so, she tells so and so, the cashier at the store of purchase who had all your information for a warranty of item, or on screen because of using a members or loyalty card tells her boyfriend or little brother and his friends who then give her a percentage of anything they get, except the jail sentence, she doesn't want to be greedy in that respect.
                  Nosey neighbor Gary's wife is on the phone with their son just out of rehab, he wants to talk to his dad to borrow some money but he's told "your dad's out there mowing the lawn for like the tenth time this week, Jim is unloading something off the truck and he wants to see what it is, must be a secret it's all covered up, but anyways I'll have him call as soon as he comes inside." later the son inquires a bit more and as days go by he's fishing for information, possibly.
                  I've not even started to list anything that is far fetched. And i won't,
                  If you want your stuff safe, it is highly recommended that your safe your purchase, is safe from being broken into. The title of "safe" awards nothing as protection, and sometimes it can be better to have no safe at all, you've not marked yourself or made a question of what valuables you must have to spend "that kind of money on a safe", now a safe filled with 2,000 champagne party poppers on a sheet of plywood hooked to 1 larger string setup to fire them all at once, given the system was hooked to a pulley or something to increase pull force *sigh*, would be amazing, and amazingly hard to clean up.
                  Did I ever mention that time that.. Oh what time is it? Oh shit I've been making this reply for over 2 hours now.
                  Sometimes under a dresser, above and behind a curtain rod, (sewn in if needed) or many other clever places are good for storing things relatively safe, who will look there? Why would they want to? Right. Sometimes having no safe is better than having one.
                  Sincerely, not-your-average-Joe.
                  Best of luck.

                    I'm a machinist and I've also done some metal fabrication and I can do Mig welding. I have a much better idea from the start as to what I would want and the information in this video is great and simple for me especially to understand. I would not have a safe unless it was bolted to the floor and into a couple of studs in the wall. I may even build it into the wall so the door is flush with the wall adding more work for a would be thief to get at what's inside. Unfortunately, the cost may stop me from purchasing the Safe I want.

                          Question: for those who have basements, encasing the safe in concrete that is properly tied into the basement floor and wall. Would that provide the same additional security and thermal protection on the body? Along with the 1/4" or thicker door.

                          composite doors vs saws all, saws all wins! All those chrome bolts are for show only, just cut a new door in that soft 12 ga sheet metal. Finally a dealer who tells the truth about gun safes. Digital locks do fail with repeat use over years, either the pad or internal. Pad you can easily switch out, internal goes bad you're locked out. Mechanical locks are best

                            What would be a recommendation for an apartment safe for two or rifles and a couple of handguns? This would be for a young couple out of college and probably moving to a graduate school after a couple of years in the work world.

                            Let's kick the discussion up to the needs of a homeowner with a upper end collection. What would the recommendation be for that need?

                              Thank you for the video, this info has been extremely helpful. I like the personal protection safes as the added bonus content at the end. That is definitely my next investment having a little son and all.

                                      Did I hear 11k for safe at some point? If so, that ain't too bad if your keeping a couple hundred thousands in there. Especially if it is made with the right stuff to withstand an attack.

                                                          but you haven't addressed the issue of the locking mech. Some are very easily defeated by people that know what they're doing. Not saying I do, but when doing some research for one of my books, I found that knowledgeable high end thieves. can crack any of these fairly easily. Knowledge is power. Question is, if times are tight and you can't afford a good safe, what do you need to lock up? Times that tough, sell the stuff you might put in a safe.

                                                              Very, very informative. I have avoided buying a gun safe for a while but now that I've gotten more than a couple of guns only a few of which are truly expensive, I really need one or more. So thanks for all of the valuable information. Now how do I get $4000 to buy one?

Thanks for being so passionate & professional. I learned some extremely important things in your video here. I’m looking to purchase a safe for home defense & plan to reach out for assistance.
