    Don't get one, too flimsy, some AOs won't approve them.

    They look like the cheap thin stack-on safes just re-branded. School locker type setup. Would be alright for storing ammo and such but could be open with minimal effort, so I wouldn't put any firearms in there.

    Were the stack on ones mentioned the "put it together yourself" ones that I said I'd be happier wrapping my rifle in tinfoil? I thought buffalo river was a reasonable brand, maybe not.

    Yup those are the ones I was talking about. Flimsy is a word one could use to describe them.

    So, you've spent a fair amount of money on your firearms. Maybe a couple of thousand dollars by the time you actually add up the cost of rifle, scope, ammunition, time to the range, hunting gear and so on - unless you've purchased a Mosin Nagant and still wear a hat back to front.

    So why the fuck would people skimp and spend the least amount of money protecting their $$ ?!

    It just defies belief.
    Bryan and Dougie like this.

    Yep I thought that too, I reckon you could punch through that "safe"! I sturdy wooden one would do you better.

    (a) tradition - cos a lot used to leave the gun behind the door, or chained to the water tank and (b) mainly, because some money grabbing retailers charge a fortune for a crap safe and a mortgage for a decent one. Given how cheap a decent US one is and how strong the Kiwi $ is, then they should be able to bulk buy some good strong US made safes for the Kiwi market.

    I'd like a better one but lack space for it. Waiting till my boy turns 16 and get his own licence, then I can get either a larger and more secure safe for the garage, or just a second safe for his wardrobe.

    If you want to buy stuff based on your perception of being able to run the business yourself, good luck
