There are plenty of gun safes out there, however there aren’t nearly as many home safes!
Home safes are similar to their firearm counter parts, however are able to be shorter and more compact, because they don’t have to fit the long guns in them.
Now this list will be specific to a full size home safe, and not a handgun safe. So don’t be surprised if I don’t mention a well known brand, as it may be in my Best Pistol Safe article.
So let’s get right to the list!
1. Fort Knox Home Safes
Fort Knox is hands down one of my favorite manufacturers of gun safes. However did you know they also build the shorter home safe? These safes are identical to their long gun safe bretheren, however they are a shorter style, and have shelving throughout.
Don’t forget to check out the add-ons, as you can even add the drawer system into these safes.
If you are on a budget, but still want a USA made safe, the Maverick series has a home safe version as well! It may not be their full blown vault, but still an amazing safe with 11 gauge steel and a respectable fire rating.
If you aren’t on a budget than make sure to check into their vaults, they get pretty crazy.

2. Rhino IronWorks Home Safes
This manufacturer builds some of the coolest looking safes out there. With their IronWorks safe you can get the industrial, distressed look, and still have a great, secure safe.
My personal favorite is the CIWD3022, this safe offers great protection at 12 gauge, the distressed finish, and an 85 minute fire rating.
You can learn more about this safe on their website.
3. Browning SP9
The Browning SP9 is the only safe on this list that is not made in the USA. That is also because it can be purchased for under $1000.00.
The SP9 is a part of the Sporter series, and has all of the same features, however is just shorter. This includes the 12 gauge steel, and the great fire rating.
This manufacturer makes some awesome products and belongs on any home safe list.
