Default Tractor Supply gun safe

Are these worth the money and has anyone had any problems with them? Talking about the cannon brand. Thanks for the input.

They will all probably be on sale in another week. I bet a lot of individuals have first hand experiences from the Black Friday Sales.

I've got a 64 gun Cannon from TSC that I've never had issues with. Sometimes I have to enter the keycode twice for it to open but other than that it serves it's purpose.

If your considering the 24, get a 48, at least.

I've got the Superwide 80 from TSC and no complaints (other than I needed a 160, lol).

Had to replace my keypad but customer service was very good and had a new one to my door in a few days free of charge. I have the tall and wide for 3 years now and wish I had gone bigger. My Lovely Bride has even taken over a shelf for jewels and such. Is no place sacred left?

Just keep in mind if it says 24 gun safe its more like 8-10 scoped rifles. And another thing. Two doped up theives can probably carry out a 24 unless its beastmode heavy. I bought a 42 i think and wish id a gone bigger. Cause most folks don't need 2, just 1 bigger than originally thought

I'll be looking for a second one during the Black Friday sales, it'll be at least a 48"x72". My first is a 36"x60" Cannon from Academy that I've had for 10-12 years. Dial lock got jacked up and I replaced it with an electronic keypad and it's been golden since.

I have one. They are great for theft protection or keeping firearms away from kids. I have my doubts that it would survive a real fire though. You gotta pay big $$ to get a good one for that.

Bolt them down. Preferably in a closet where they cannot get leverage in the door seams with a crowbar. They are fairly easy to open with a couple of crowbars, check out utube videos.

You'll know the difference between a RSC and a real safe the moment someone with a pry bar shows up, or when there is a fire. Don't get me wrong—safes from TSC or Academy are great for a lot of things, but realize it's not going to keep out anyone other than a smash-n-grabber or some dumb kids.

To the floor, yes. With lag bolts.

Remember, you get what you pay for. Do your research on the model you are looking at and compare that to other safes on the market. Bolting the safe to the foundation will help keep what you have much safer. Compare with these companies:

Check out www.hollonsafe.com (Corpus Christi) and www.amsecusa.com

If you find something you like there, pm me for pricing and availabilty.

Default Cannon Safe

I purchased one realizing they aren't all that solid. I ended up lining the inside with aluminum and plating the outside and reinforcing the door. If you look at the lower back you will find a hole in the back metal where you can drill through and power the inside. The minimal thickness of the safe can be seen there. The top on mine wasn't seal welded and actually had bodyfiller in many places. The door mechanism is pretty mickey mouse. Pull the inside cover off one at TSC and see for yourself. I could probably tear the side off one with a chipping hammer in not much time. That said, it is heavily sheet rocked and the fire rating is probably better than advertised. So i put all this time in this safe fortification project and ole Harvey put her under water. Cannon stands behind their fire, flood and theft attempt warranty. I called cannon, they registered my safe over the phone, and sent me a brand new one ( 80 wide ) which I received yesterday that happens to be an upgrade to the one I have. They gave me no hassle on the modifications to the original, which I get to keep. You generally get what you pay for, and that is the case with the cannon safe price and security level however their customer service is top notch.

I have the 64 gun safe and it has moved several times with me when I've transferred duty stations, even across the US. It is still going strong and I haven't had issues with the keypad or anything...yet. It is just a chore getting it moved! I love mine.
