Can anyone recommend a good steel gun cabinet for around $200, in six gun size. Also, it is desiralbe that it be fireproof, but I don't think one can get that in my price range.
Metal gun cabinets are widely available in your price range. Construction will be comparable to a similarly priced file cabinet. Should be pre-drilled to mount to wall studs. Stack-On is probably the most prolific manufacturer.T-TRAIN said:Can anyone recommend a good steel gun cabinet for around $200, in six gun size.

Read your policy. Some homeowner's policies will offer a nominal amount, but if you own even one good O/U, you'll need more coverage. NRA offers a decent basic plan to all members, with the option of adding extra coverage. I have a separate policy through NRA, since my collection has grown.BanditB17 said:Are guns typically covered under renters/owners insurance? It would be really sad to lose my guns in a fire, but am I completely screwed if I do or is there hope?
The inexpensive gun cabinets are built about to school locker specs, maybe a little better, so for Fire, probably no protection. Thieves, maybe enough depending on what you have. It really depends how unlikely of a scenario you are trying to deter. A typical burglary is a pretty in and out affair, and since a locker would slow them down, would probably be a deterrent. OTOH, if you were being targeted specifically for your guns and they were a little more purposeful, it wouldn't take much to get into a typical Stack On locker. I've seen posts that are distrustful even of smaller real safes (like my 500 pounder) because if two guys can get it in, two guys can get it out. That may be true, but frankly, the odds of two guys taking the trouble of getting my safe out of the basement to take back their lair to extract my 1200 bucks worth of guns seems pretty remote). This does offer an argument against placing the safe in your garage though.T-TRAIN said:I should have stated cabinet instead of safe, sorry about that. How much protection (thieves, fire, etc.) do those cabinets really provide?
It is not a COSTCO on line item. It is an IN STORE ONLY item.I don't find this item on the Costco web site. Could they be gone already??
I went to the closest Dick's last weekend and they quoted me $400 (HUNDRED!) to deliver the big $1200 46 gun safe.txrick55 said:Take a look at these and see if they might suit your needs:
