Looking for a good safe in the $300-$500 price range. I have been looking at the Sentry safe with the keypad that Academy sells for $359

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Own Liberty from Gander. Touch pad and 45 minute fire rating. Good sales you can get a 20 gun safe for around 600. Sentry is not my 1st choice. Smaller Liberty's are a bit less.

I have had 2 Liberty's and been very happy. Buy a bigger safe than you need. Trust me.

Just got a Liberty 50 Lincoln series that was scratched - they knocked off a grand!!!

Great product - and really fun to get into the house at 1600 pounds. :)

I have a Browning safe. Very pricey, but it's like a piece of furniture. It holds my guns plus important documents. I have the touch pad on mine. I strongly recommend the touch pad versus the traditional tumbler style. When you are looking at them, just try to open the tumbler quickly. I just tried to envision myself at night having to get to the guns quickly.

I also like the lock out feature the key pad has. You can set it to lock you out for up to thirty minutes after so many tries.

Liberty with touch pad here. Touch pad became the choice when a friend's wife took the divorce news badly and went to the tumblers and the guns sold in town at steep discount .He couldn't change the combo like with a keypad .

My wife got me the model you listed in the original post back in September. I really like it.

It was confusing to set up at first because the shelf sits lower than the top of the shotgun barrels. There is a gap on the back of the shelf so you can angle your shotguns in and put them in the back behind the gap.

It holds about 4 shotguns and 4 rifles pretty easily. I would get this model again but if I had more guns it would be bigger.

I have a Liberty safe, Franklin series and am very happy with it. I agree with an earlier post that you should buy bigger than you think.
