ffffg said:depends on what part of the country you live in.. If its a desert the garage would be fine. If you put a dehumidifier in the safe, it should be fine in the garage.. Ive seen alot of tools ruined in uheated garages, sheds and etc in montana and washington state.. dave..
Bobshouse (no pun intended) is probably right about the floor taking the wait. If you really think about the furniture you have in your house and sometimes the number of people you will have sitting or standing together at any given time, it's probably not a big deal.Bobshouse said:I wouldn't worry about the weight on the floor. If your an average man and can stand on one foot without breaking through, you safe will be fine. A fully stocked refrigerator puts over 200lbs a square foot on the floor.
Now as far as getting it in your house...good luck with that one!
Definately put it in a temperature controlled environment, you don't want your guns to sweat due to temperature extremes.
Well, two things. First of all, while the ground floor is closer to the foundation, there's still a space of a few inches between where you're standing and the actual foundation. If a safe were to collapse through, yes it wouldn't go very far, but you'd still have an unsightly messJOYtheSTUDmuffin said:why not just put it on the ground floor? then its pretty much on the foundation
