You can likely find some good rebates and shipping online, but nothing like year end deals from Thanksgiving to Christmas.
Give us a clue as to size, capacity, weight, and structural integrity long with fire rating.

Check scrap yards around sporting goods distribution centers. All the ones with a crumpled corner due to dropping off a pallet, scratched, etc. wind up at a scrap metal place eventually. That Fatboy safe with a bunged up lower corner would go for $2-300 from the scrapyard owner.

Watch YouTube videos on how easy some of these are to bust or cut into.

A combination of security (several layers) are your best bet.

The only reason I have one is because I am legally mandated to by the Syrupland Horsepigs, so I have a StackOn cabinet I got for 100 bucks on kijiji. My home isnt particularly likely to be targeted, nor would it be particularly easy to get in so Im not really concerned about it.

Usually Liberty at the factory outlet about 20 minutes away from me. Then there's Champion and Superior safe outlet just down the road about 5 minutes away. All good and have a couple of the Liberty and Champion safes myself and also have a Canon Armory 64 gun safe.

Check Craigslist. I have a number of safes I picked up...and they are awfully heavy and build extremely well. A few well placed mods and they are good to go.

Large data safes are a good bet too....and available on Craigslist.

I picked up a couple of SecureIt's storage cabinets. They're not heavy but they're easy to move into place and bolt down. After realizing how easy a heavy safe can be cut open it drove me to want something like this instead. I really like how rifles fit inside them and I've got several of them all bolted together. They're in a locked room, on a continuously recording camera, with motion sensors monitoring the room.

Generally you want one that will fit everything you have now plus what you will buy in the next 10 years. And the gun capacity rating is a joke. If you laid the safe on its back and ground the guns into powder maybe 64 would fit in a 64 gun safe. It would be difficult to get 64 pistols into one and have any sort of free access.

You can get the number of long guns into a safe specified by the manufacturer, just not the way it shows in the pictures. Put them in gun socks and put them in one muzzle up, and the next muzzle down. The four or five rifles that I use the most are up front and not in socks. No dings or scratches yet. A few optics thrown in there brings it down to about 75%.

Industry trick: Find a Samoan company.

That`s not a joke. Samoan movers specialize in the especially huge and awkward items that average Joe Americano won`t touch.

Hop on Craigslist and find some guys in California or something.

Several suggestions for tractor supply, does TSC deliver safes? Or have a professional mover do so?

Sams Club always has a Stack On 35 gun safe with 45 min ratings for $500 for a starter

Multi-layered security is better then relying on just a $2,000-$5,000 safe
to protect your belongings. Even a $500 Stack On safe is more secure if properly
installed, and protected, with a home security system, and Big F'n Dog.

Front door attacks are gimmicks to sell safes. Most thieves cut right thru
the sides in under 30 minutes, regardless the safe. So don't get sold on the
front doors thickness, it's marketing gimmicks......angle grinder will cut
thru most safes sides like butter

Just keep in mind your REAL objective is to give any potential burglar under 5 minutes.

Over 5min just to get the god damn cutting wheel on the grinder. Letís not got robbing places prepared or anything.

Im in a shitty situation where I canít take my own advice, but whatever safe you get, donít put it in the same place as your tools. Iíve talked to 2 too many people who said ďthey cut into my safe with my own grinderĒ.
