    Looking for a gun safe

    Hey all,
    Iím looking to pick up a cheap safe so I can get a firearms license finally! Iíve been bowhunting a bit since I moved to NZ last February but itís time a get a boom stick. Iím definitely on a budget so Iím trying here first before I wade into the trade me waters. Iím willing to drive a bit to explore more of NZ but nearest to Tauranga would be best.
    Anyone have an old 3-5gun safe theyíve outgrown? Hopefully around $150?

    I bought my " 8 gun safe " off trademe for 300 bucks. Would pay to check as the 3 or 5 gun ones can be bought new for 150 odd i think.

    and the number of guns they say will fit is a have, usually.
    will only do if not scoped, probably mean shotguns, not rifles....
    can't close the door on them if scoped unless stored sideways.

    They are a have alright.
    I have an e cat safe that is supposed to fit 18. I have half that in long guns in there and it is a squeeze. Most of the dings and marks on some of my bangsticks are just from getting them in and out of the safe

    Also check the door opens all the way, one of my cheap ones is a real pain as it only opens about 60 degrees

    The 1-day website has gun safes fairly regularly, I think my 8 gun one cost $250. And it does hold 8...just! They have a 5 gun version, and I think a 3 as well

    Cheers guys, I appreciate the heads up about the size of the safes. Iíve never had one cuz in Hawaii and Canada we didnít need anything like that
    What are shipping costs like for something that heavy? Trade me ones seem to be anywhere from $70 odd to $170 for shipping!

    Hmmm the firearms size safes actually aren't that much cheaper than retail, still reasonable though

    The 8 gun safe is a pretty reasonable rate. They donít ship to rural addresses though. Maybe I can contact them about delivery options.

    Yeah you might find they're happy to ship to the local depot for pickup
