    Sentry Safe - E Cat

    Does anyone have one of these safes? What you are thoughts and comments on them?

    Looking at one some time in the future.

    Pretty sure Leathel does. Big bastard too. Seems quite good.

    Yup mine is sweet.. heavy bastard to shift but never missed a beat. Some come with electronic codes etc, mine is just the tumbler dial like in the picture, never had an issue apart from it needs to be bigger

    I've got the "14 Gun E-Cat" fireproof model too.

    It's pretty sweet. Good fit and finish.

    -Have the rotary tumbler model same as leathel- hasn't missed a beat.
    -Would reccomend getting slightly bigger than you think you need: As with all gun safes (In my experience) the quoted number of guns held is a bit ambitious- maybe scope-less would be 14. But I find it holds 6-8 comfortably (with lots of space/not really touching) and 12 if I jam them in there.

    I have one of these, heavy as others have said.

    I got the electronic pin model 2nd hand works a treat.

    I was goign to buy one, but wanted bigger, and didnt really want to get 2 of them, so have got a 51 gun coming

    From all accounts, I would have brought one on the spot as they are sweet, just not big enough

    Good safes apart from the base plates being made of carpet covered gib board ( absolute cheap shit ) that was a little disappointing

Its not that much of a jump up in price for a major increase in capacity though, I would have got the 36gun safe years ago if I knew they were around. Between me, my brother and now my missus, we have about 20 guns (16 of which are mine.....) and its nice to have a bit of space around them. Much kinder to the guns. A lot less knocks getting them in and out.
    Funny that you should say "its nice to have a bit of space around them. Much kinder to the guns"
    That is one of the questions the vetting officers now ask when rechecking E cat security. "Are your guns comfortable, do they have enough room?"
    He even asked me what the windows in my house were made of. He then tried (take note, TRIED) to give me a ticking off for being a smartarse when I told him I presumed they were made of glass.

    Unless your shop has one instock you may have a bit of a wait.

    I asked last week and they had 6 arriving and orders for 11. More due in August but they are selling fast.

    Best to get a order in if you want one
