Yeah, most homeowner grade "safes" are basically junk. I was told with a power drill and a large flat tip screwdriver a 8 year old could get in through the door in about 5 minutes. Also the key backup on most electronic safe locks is very easy to pick.Thinking about doing something similar to this myself. After buying a few safes I started inspecting them. The liberty I have has nothing behind the hinges for fire protection And if you ever take off the door cover and look at the locking assembly its very cheaply made. The locking bolts are connected to thin metal. It wouldn't take much to break them off. Most gun safes are alot of false advertisement imo.. I'm thinking about buying 10 guage metal and making a big box that I can put the safe in and lining it with ceramic. I think that would help tremendously over just a box with drywall for fire protection. After doing alot of research you find out that most firearm's burn up in most safes if it's a bad fire.

From a strictly technical standpoint, most gun safes aren't even classified as safes, but as residential security containers. A category only slightly higher than those cheap sheet metal cabinets with a chintzy lock in the handle.
