Liberty safes provide one of the best options in the market for avid gun collectors. However, with so many options, it can be difficult to decide which safe is the right safe for you. Here are a few things to consider when choosing your Liberty Safe.
Determining Your Needs
Before purchasing a Liberty gun safe, you should take time to consider your personal needs in the product. Not all safes are the same, and for good reason. Your space and storage needs are different from someone else’s, so it is important to have a variety of sizes and styles to choose from. Following are a few factors you should keep in mind when choosing a safe.
This is one of the first things you should consider. However, it is often overlooked. How much space do you have? Liberty safes come in all shapes and sizes, so you should think ahead about the layout of your home, how much room you have to spare, and where in your house you want to store your safe. A studio apartment isn’t nearly as big as a 5-bedroom house (of course), so space must be taken into account.
Another important factor is location. Even if your home possesses an open layout and you can store your safe in the open, you might have a specific plan in your mind for its location. Depending on whether you’re storing your safe in a closet, a garage, or a room dedicated to showing off your gun collection, your choice of Liberty safe may change. Consult a Liberty safe dealer about the sizes and styles of safe that will work best in your planned location.
Additionally, storage capacity plays a huge role in the type of Liberty safe you invest in. After all, there is quite a difference between storing a few handguns and storing 30 shotguns. Smaller safes, like the Centurion 12, work well for individuals who only own a few guns and simply want to keep them out of the way. On the other hand, avid gun collectors who own 50+ long guns probably need a bigger safe like the Fatboy 64 Extreme, which can store 64 long guns. Consider your collection and how much storage space you’ll need your safe to provide.
Determining Your Budget
Next comes everyone’s least favorite part of shopping. After you determine your needs, it is time to set your budget. Fortunately for you, Liberty safes come in a wide range of prices, and you may not need to break your bank account just to store your firearms properly.
Setting a good budget is all about separating priorities from luxuries. What do you want versus what do you need?
For example, while almost every Liberty safe comes with a fire rating, you may want one with a higher fire rating than what is standard. For you personally, is this a priority or a luxury? A higher fire rating may cost more, so if it’s a priority, it’s important to have a set budget. Additionally, you can explore customization options so that you are prepared and informed of your options.
On the other hand, Liberty safes come with your choice of a mechanical or elock, which might be nice but not a priority. If your budget does not allow for the more expensive option, you can weed out the luxury and keep the fire rating priority mentioned above.
Regardless of your budget or needs, there is guaranteed to be a Liberty gun safe right for you. Reach out to our experts today for more help in choosing your Liberty safe, and find the safe that works for you without breaking the bank!
