For those looking to buy a safe, I wish this page existed when I bought mine: https://gunsafereviewsguy.com/
I’m pretty happy with this. I don’t own a gun, but I’ve shot with friends once or twice a year over the last few years. Went to the range with friends yesterday and used the pistol range. Middle and upper right are 9mm with red dot sight. Lower right is a .22 with iron sights. Left lower and upper are 9mm Beretta with iron sights.
I don’t think that’s bad for someone with relatively no skill level and Bourbon shakes.
Looks like fun... what kind of distance were you shooting from?
I’m going to say 30 yards, but that’s an estimate. I’m not that knowledgeable, but the targets were at the far back of the range.
When a subconsultant gives you a BassPro gift card for $100 and a contractor gives you a gift card for $100, you go and buy a Ruger LCP. Holy crap this thing is light. I really like it. I have pretty big hands - long fingers, but not meaty - and it feels good with the finger grip extension plate on. I've been carrying it in my front pocket in the little included sleeve holster. It barely weighs more than my cell phone. I haven't shot it yet, though. Will report back.
LCP is a decent gun. The one I have is a little picky with ammo. It doesn't like Blazer at all, but doesn't have any issues I've found with brass or defensive loads.
I imagine it would probably be fine with cheap ammo if I polished the feed ramp and things like that, but I've found ammo it likes so I don't really care.
Good to know. I have all the .380 ammo I can ever shoot. It's law enforcement grade (Winchester), and I've never had trouble with it in my other two .380s.
First handgun of my own, a Sig P365. CCW app is pending.
What everyone's thoughts on Liberty safes? Im in the market for a new one, mainly for firearms and storing birth certificates, social security cards, etc.
I have one and I haven't had any issues, however I recommend checking out the safe review link I previously posted:
If that's the case, be sure to get a fire-rated safe, not just a security rated one. Fire rated means it can be in the middle of a raging inferno for X mins/hours without letting heat inside get to the point that it will damage the paperwork.
Can't speak to the specific manufacturer, but be aware that a lot of cheap safes are NOT fire rated.
Personally, I got a hold of an old government fire-rated file cabinet (really thick locking drawers) that I store all my paperwork in... it's heavy as fuck, but was super cheap at an auction years ago. (I also use it to store my ammo in, while keeping my guns in a cheap "security only" safe).
They're expensive as hell, but a used one might be available for cheap: https://www.safefile.com/fireking-2-2131-c-2-drawer-legal.html
Case in point... here's a big one on Kijiji for $100: https://www.kijiji.ca/v-storage-con...et/1414604548?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
If you're storing firearms in it and hope to get to those firearms in a quick manner (like a potential home invasion), don't do one of those biometric safes. They look cool until your hands are wet/sweaty and they won't read properly.
Like Nett said, if you intend to store documents in it, make sure it is fire-rated. Or store your documents in a separate safe or cabinet that is fire-rated.
With the guns vs. the documents, you're potentially looking at two different types of storage, and it might be cheaper for you to store them in two different types of safe.
Im going to get a quick-access safe for my closet at some point. This one will be in the basement for storage of a handful of rifles and some handguns along with documents. Not something I need to get to during a home invasion. I sold all my guns to my dad a few years ago because I didnt have a safe place to put them when I lived in an apartment. Now that i have a house, Im going to buy them back.
Finally got myself some decent glass for my AR-10. Not high end, but I'm a cheap ass so $340 for the scope + mount really hurt. Primary Arms 4-14X44, illuminated reticle. PA's stuff has really started to compete with the big boys, and now budget doesn't necessarily mean bad.
Figured now that I have the last rifle I'll ever need (308, 22 inch barrel, perfect for anything in north america), might as well buy once and cry once with the scope too.
