RedHead® 1856 Collection Fire-Resistant Gun Safe
I just bought this safe from the store.
It took two other guys and myself to move the thing into my living room with a stout appliance dolly. We didn't bother removing the door.
When I unboxed the safe and took off all of the foam sheeting I couldn't find a scratch on it. The metal feet screwed to the bottom of the safe were also very easy to remove.
The previous reviewer said that when he put an ammo box in the floor of his safe it would bump up against plastic rifle rack 'feet' at the bottom of the door when he tried to shut the door. I ran into this issue too when I tried to put a file box on the floor of my safe. But you can remove each of the 'feet' individually - you just tilt them back and lift. However this door rack for long guns is only useful for shotguns and riles without scopes.

Just purchased this safe at the store and received 10% off for using their 0% financing card. I'm inpatient and couldn't wait to get it in the house when I got home however no friends to help. I was able to get it out of my Explorer, in the garage, down the basement stairs (carpeted) and installed. Took a little elbow grease and leverage but it's possible.
The build quality seems good (not much experience with safe so I'm assuming) and I like the layout and color.
I have a few standard size ammo boxes that are located in the lower left and keep the door from closing unless I remove the lower door rifle holders.
The depth of this safe prevents me from putting a tube style dehumidifier across the floor as the door hits it as well.
Not sure if it's normal but the 3 prong latch handle on the front seems a bit too loose and almost feels like I could break it if I really tried.
Removed lower rifle holders from door.
Wish I would have went with the deeper safe this style.

Bought the bigger model of this same safe. I needed a second safe for my guns as family heirlooms were taking up so much in my house safe. I took the shelves and divider out and have plenty of room for guns and some ammo. Left the top shelf for mags. The door pockets and hangers allow for handguns and several long guns. Just what the doctor ordered. Purchased at BPS so I can't speak to shipping. BPS staff made sure lock worked properly inspected before loading. Bigger model is higher but well worth the extra money for the extra room. Six inches deeper than this model.

.You really can't beat this safe for the price. It will easily hold 10 long guns and a dozen handguns,
as well as ammo. I agree that you should buy the safe at the stores well as saving on the cost, the Bass Pro Shop employees will help you with operating the lock. They made sure that I could open the safe several times before I left the store.
The safe was fairly easy to place in the house. It is heavy and time consuming to move, but it can be done alone with a hand truck (dolly). I recommend this safe for a piece of mind knowing your firearms are protected
