Question Handgun Safe?

I'm looking for a gun safe. I don't need top of the line, and I'm not trying to stop an determined intruder/looter, but I'd like to lock up what I have when I'm not in the house (and move it into a closet).

I'm looking for something that could store 8-10 handguns and 4-6 long guns.

Does anyone have a suggestion?

I bought one of these a few years back, and bolted it to a shelf in my closet. I used round headed bolts so it couldn't be unscrewed from the outside of the safe.

It's definitely inexpensive, but very durable, and meets the need for one or two handguns, plus a knife and flashlight.

I also pulled the wire for the beeping buttons, so it would be quieter if I need to use it in the case of an intruder.

I use the Sentry X055. It's like $55 on Amazon, but you'd need a bigger size obviously.

Your title says "handgun" safe, but then you say you need it to hold 4-6 long guns?

You 2 must have some very short long guns.

Jeez. How did I miss the long guns and extra handguns. Did he edit his post later?

I got one from Gander Mountain, this dude - First Alert 1.3 cu. ft. Bolt-Down Waterproof Fire-Resistant Digital Safe

It has a shelf that you can get the pistol hangers for. I have 10 handguns in it. 7-8 hanging and 2 on the floor of the safe.

Fits nicely in the closet.

Liberty Safes are a very good option. I've had mine since 1995.

Almost all the safes I see for sale are geared to long guns with handguns being an afterthought. I have more handguns than long guns and wanted a handgun focused safe.

I know you can build the Liberty safes to your specs. The smaller model is under a grand and has enough room for your long guns and can be requested with the handgun pouches on the inner door. Check out their web site. A lot of dealers carry their stuff too so you may find one locally to check out.
