Thanks for the review – there are hardly any reviews of it this available. How big is the gap around the door? Maybe you could try shoving things in there like a credit card or pry bar and see if they fit?

I just bought the original Titan, the smaller version of this safe. I opted for the mechanical dial lock. It will last much longer than the electronic lock with electrolytic capacitors that will “dry out” in 10 years or so, potentially locking you out. I am a bit disappointed that the La Gard mechanical lock is made in China. The wheel pack is made out of brass and aluminum (good), but the internal lever that drives the bolt when you open the lock is made of plastic (IMHO bad) but I suppose if you treat it gently, it will last longer than I will. The lock comes set to a lame factory combination, but it is fairly easy (at least it was for me) to set my own combination that is easy for me tor remember but difficult to guess.  The combination tolerance on this lock is plus or minus one number of the set combination, which is typical of a group 2 lock like this one.

Although the bolt work is only on the left side of the door, a thief will *NOT* be able to gain access by cutting off the external hinges. The inside of the door has a lip that extends the entire height on the hinge side, securing it in place when the door is locked. The safe is equipped with a “relocker” in addition to one in the lock itself that will thwart any attempt to “Punch out” the lock to gain entry. Bolt this safe to the floor as instructed in the manual and the bad guys are going to have to spend at least two hours getting into it.

That door looks very small. How do you get things in and out with the tiny door? Looks like you would need to remove the shotgun every time you want something on that side.

Interested in buying one of these, now almost 4 months later would you purchase it again?  Any issues you’ve found over that time, or something you don’t like?  I don’t see anywhere that it is predrilled for electricity hookup, other then predrilled for mounting.  Does it have a hole in back for electrical hookups?

Your original statement, to protect from fire, this will not protect from fire.
That is a lie.
It can also be broken into easily.
In less than a minute I can use just a pickaxe/grubbing hoe and walk away with your guns. It will take longer to load them up in the car than it will to break into the safe and pull them out.

The gun safes using sheetrock instead of concrete like a real firesafe won’t offer fire protection despite what the advertising says. If you were looking to protect electronics you would need the best UL class 150 min or 125 for lower humidity. For just firearms a UL class 350 would be sufficient but not for electronics. Generally all these ratings can only be found on safes that have a minimum burglary rating of B/C/TL-15 or better. Most lower end don’t meet any of those certifications but pretend they have UL by using the Sheetrock UL rating for a fire barrier but this is for the dry wall in a home construction setting. Some midrange gun safes have a UL RSC rating but it’s a meaningless rating against prying with screwdrivers instead of actual burglary tools and no certified fire rating. The best gun safes will have TL-15/TL-30 ratings and fire certifications like offerings from: Brown Safe, Hollon Safe, American security, Inkas. Easy to move alone with an ultralift, steprider 1800
