    Attended a cottage fire and my fire dept recovered this ....house was a total loss, and this box was in the fire in the center of the burn for 2 hours.

    Gives one an idea of effectiveness of these

    Enfield No.5, two break action pellet rifles (old Czechs, Slavia or something like that) and something I can’t quite make out. The lengthy tang makes me think break action of some sort.

    My worst nightmare (house fire). Those thin metal cabinets keep out the guys who don’t have a pry bar handy and that’s about it. I’ve been thinking about getting a fire resistant safe, but even those aren’t likely to help if the whole place goes up.

    I have a full fire resistant safe. It weighs about 400 lbs for the cabinet and another 300 for the door. It’s located on an outside wall. I hope it would fare better.

    Well considering it's a cabinet, it's really no better then a school locker,so why anyone would think it would provide any protection baffles me.

    I lined my homemeade safe with drywall in the hopes that if it even buys 20 minutes, something might be saved.
    Figured it couldn't hurt.

    Even a full fire resistant safe has a limit. They're only good for a specific amount of time at a specific temperature.
    The paper on dry wall burns.
    Firearm insurance with replacement value is your friend. Kind of like to see the look on an agent's face when he's told it was a vintage No. 5 Rifle that can't easily be replaced.

    i bought two fire resistant safes, both are rated for 45 minutes at 1500 degrees. hoping the fire department will knock the fire down before that. it is also water resistant as well
