Patriot Gun Safes Review
The Patriot Series by Liberty offers UL Listed security and increased fire protection for the best value in its class. Each Patriot features a 12 gauge steel door and body with Liberty's patented new high security 4 inch locking bars that protect better against pry attacks. Also, the doors feature three hardened plates to resist drilling and a direct drive slip-clutch lock mechanism to prevent forced entry. Combined with a 3-in-1 Flex interior and a single plug electrical outlet kit, these features add up to the most secure value in the industry.
If you want a UL RSC burglary rating but don't have the budget to step up to a true safe, this is a great option. AMSEC BFX is the only real competition in this price range but Sturdy Armor has some upgrades that make it competitive as well. One important difference is that the AMSEC is a single piece of steel whereas the Sturdy is two thinner sheets welded together. This is not a significant difference but it is worth keeping in mind when choosing.
Also keep in mind that a home improvement store like Lowe's or Home Depot may have a used safe in stock that will fit your guns and meet your needs for less money than a new RSC rated gun safe from Liberty. Home improvement stores primarily sell tools, hardware and building supplies but they do carry some safes. You may also find a safe dealer who specializes in gun safes that could help you find what you need.
