A good safe will not be penetrated by a burglar. Make sure it is bolted down to a solid floor. Unless they are extremely well prepared, and are planning on breaking into a safe (like they know what you have), they're not going to get in.
If you buy a fifty dollar safe, well, all bets are off.
Mount it properly, and it'll be there when you get home!
Of course, a decent security system will do wonders. Fortify your house at all entry points. Etc, etc. Do you live in a bad neighborhood?
