Safe & Sound

We've wanted a safe for some time, but couldn't justify spending $300-$500 for a new one. So, I checked craigslist and found a number of home safes in the $150-$250 range. After some research, we decided on a Sentry Fire Safe that was listed for $200 (it costs $312 new). I was able to talk the guy down to $175.


We put our cash, passports, social security cards, marriage license, insurance paperwork, and our external hard drive (important digital files and photos). When we have kids in the house, we can also lock up our handgun in the safe.

Here are some of the features of the model (KSW3632) that we bought:

* LCD electronic lock with backlit keypad
* 4 live-locking bolts
* 2-hour fire protection
* Water-resistant
* Multi-Position drawer
* Multi-position tray
* Key rack and compartment for small items
* Door pocket
* May be bolted to floor

J.Money,

You're not alone, in addition to the peace of mind it provides, there's something neat about having a safe. Maybe I watch too much "Duck Tales" growing up with Scrooge McDuck and his safe.

That is cool. This is one thing I always say I need to purchase and never get around to...

I plan to purchase a handgun eventually for personal home protection. Having a safe around for when the kiddies come is a smart, safe, and responsible idea.

Anonymous - handguns are only dangerous if they are in the wrong hands.

I like your blog!

Carrie,

Thanks for getting my back on the gun. If you haven't done it already, you should go rent a few guns at your local shooting range and see what fits you best.
