Good gun safes can be purchased for under $600 to $2000. While safes in these price ranges can be a great value, with good security features, a truly good gun safe that has good bragging rights of being secure with a determined smart criminal, you will probably want to save up between $3000-$4000.
In the price range of $3000 to $4000 you will start to see safes that have concrete filling, this makes it difficult to access a safe by cutting it open with a saw.
This price also allows for heavy duty steel of 10 gauge and better, as well as better locking mechanisms and interior door work.
What options are of a good price point?
Some great options in this price range are SecureIt’s True Safe, Liberty’s Lincoln safe, Rhino’s A Series, American Security’s BF series, Fort Knox Executive, and even Inkas’ Saturn Series.
Just like in any gun safe, make sure to weight the features you are getting, to the price you are paying. Make sure you aren’t paying just for a name, but also name that has features. Unfortunately at this level, you will be buying safes from well known manufacturers and will probably have to pay little bit just for a brand.
In every price range, you will want to keep an eye out for specific features of all safes. Take a look at my buying guide for more info on this.
