We have been thinking about buying a safe for our home for sometime now. We really don't have a good place to keep our valuable papers and other things like my hubby's guns and a few valuables. We don't have much crime or break-ins in this area but a safe would give us some peace of mind in case the unexpected would happen. The biggest risk we probably have here is the chance of a forest fire burning down our home. Even though we have insurance, there are some things like pictures and personal items that you can't put a value on.
My hubby has looked at a good sized upright Homak Gun Safe that is both fire proof and would be big enough to hold his guns and other irreplaceable items. The safe was only a few hundred dollars and that would be worth the peace of mind it would bring even if the safe never had to serve its primary function.
