    Need a C/E cat safe and the new regs are doing my head in

    Hey all,

    I'm looking for a fairly "cost-effective" safe that will satisfy the Police's new engineering report requirements for C/E. I already have a B cat safe for my pistols but that's too small for C/E.

    Thoughts on where I should shop? The only solution at Gun City is $2700, which is steep (but no doubt a quality product).

    Appreciate people's thoughts...

    Outdoor supplies have an E cat one although it's a little small and you would have to confirm it fits the ever changing definition of E cat safe.

    They should meet the criteria. There's one in the corner opposite my local Arms Officer's desk where they keep the station Bushmasters and Glocks in.

    Just because it's expensive that doesn't mean it's good.
    GC are always expensive

    Mcdee! have you bought one yet???
    Im (reluctantly) in the UK, and am in the process of clearing out storage we're paying dead money for... This includes my e cat safe...
    It started life as an ATM safe... so this doesnt sit upright, it sits longways along the floor - this may not suit, but the checking officer was more than happy to label it as a safe, rather than a locking cabinet.
    I have modified it, to stretch 1.5 m long, and fitted some lined pine 4x2 s for holding the rifles in place..

    PM me if need be and can discuss...

    Ill be in Auckland from 15th Feb for 12 days - it needs a new home!!!!

    Otherwise I'll have to list it on TM - I hate to sell it as it suited me what I need, but no one has space to store it for me... esp with E cat requirements

    Ill dig out some photos if I can find any...

    I built a two gun E cat safe out of RSJ. It had a 5 lever mortice dead lock welded into the top on a plate, that locked it and at the bottom end a plate was welded to it, with long bolts that could be bolted through a floor joist or set into a concrete floor. a small hole for a wall fitted bolt completed the securing of it.
    From memory it was 6 mil thick. Thats the minimum ( then ) Firearms had to be lowered into it from the top so it was a bit of a pain. But it cost me FA to make and passed vetting.
