"Gun safe options??"

I am wanting to purchase a gun safe. I probably have around 1000-1500 to spend. What would be a good buy? I am thinking around 25 guns and a door storage. Any good pointers?? Thanks in advance.

My advice would be to go as big as you can afford. My safe is advertised as a 24 gun. No way I could ever get 24 long guns in it. I mainly have scoped rifles, shotguns, and muzzleloaders in it and it's full. 13-14 guns, I think. Go big! Good luck!

Please stay away from safes built over seas. They are cheap. Take the time to look at the fire ratings, and other features such as heat sealed doors, construction, locking bolts and mechanisms, etc.
I work hand in hand with a few safe manufactures. Some companies produce the top tier safes locally, and import their low end safes. Believe me when I say the imports are junk, pure Chinese junk.
If you are worried about theft, just about any decent safe will do in reality. But if you want to cover fire protection as well, you need to pay attention to the fire ratings.
My recommendation would be a safe with a TRUE lifetime warranty- no questions asked.
+1 on buying bigger than you think as well, you will find stuff to fill it with. But again, don't skimp on fire protection just to get a larger safe. I would guess more valuables are lost to fire than theft.
