Decent stats for the price, I really like the "one-man" option of being able to set it up and move it, even in tight spaces.

I still am considering one. I see now they have two larger sizes available as well.

After watching the video, all it is, is a thin metal walled gun cabinet similar to the cheap "stack-on" cabinets with a heavy 90 pound safe door.

So it looks like a real safe and has a real safe door but the rest is just thin metal with fireproofing insulation? What prevents someone from just cutting through the side or rear?

Am I missing something here?

I bought a new (non modular) safe recently. At the end of the day, I became increasingly convinced that even a 10ga box could be easily compromised with simple tools (eg a reciprocating saw and a few blades). On the ca gun owner forum, there were pics of a higher end browning that looked like it had been peeled open like a can of sardines.

My point? I think all RSCs provide a very modest level of protection, be it these or the highly recommended concrete lined amsec BF series. It may take 5 minutes vs 20 minutes to cut into, but if someone breaks into your home and you aren't there, probably won't make a difference.

I stayed away from the modulars (Dakota, snap safe) as they felt cheaply constructed and finished. But I also spent less than I expected for my rsc based on my local crime rates at the fact that I don't have "heirlooms" I'm protecting.

Good luck in choosing what is right for you.

Hide them wherever the voices say to.

I'd not seen any previous threads on this, but it's certainly an interesting idea... but I agree w/ harlenm. I was expecting some big discount over other safes because it had to be "assembled"... but their smallest safe is a little over 1k w/ shipping. I guess if the ability to disassemble it is really that important, it might be ok.

Be easier to just go to Dick's, Gander Mountain, or Cabelas, and get a safe in your price range.
