    Howdy,

    I am looking at buying a new 25-30 gun safe as soon as I arrive at Ft. Bliss, Texas. Local vendors seem to be lacking and then there's the 8.25% Texas sales tax.

    Anyone have experience buying an American made gun safe online or direct from the manufacturer? Any online or toll free safe vendors worth considering?

    Thanks,

    Jeff Freelove

    Jeff, it has been a few years now, but I bought one direct from Fort Knox and it was an excellent experience. The price we negotiated included inside delivery and the safe itself is a thing of beauty. I dealt directly with the owner of the company and he was friendly and helpful.

    Sam's Club sometimes features a safe made by Liberty with the Winchester logo in a nicely painted dark green. I stack barrel down and can double up with some guns; but it will easily accommodate your 25-30gun target. As I recall it was $700 & change, and I picked it up with my trailer.

    A couple guys I work with just bought a safe from Steel water. They delivered with a transfer truck. The price and shipping was real reasonable but we are only 120 miles away from them. The safes are nice and well made.


    This is their website. Good luck. http://www.steelwatergunsafes.com/

    UPDATE

    Ended up with a Fatboy Jr. from Lowes for under $1000 with the military discount. $65.00 delivery for a 700 pound safe. The boys from Lowes put the safe in the garage exactly where we wanted it.

    Great deal on an American made safe.
