haven't researched the browning safes, but liberty seems to have some of the better safes out there, but they are pricey.

I have a LIBERTY SAFE, I don't worry about anybody breaking in it, What ever safe you buy, I would make sure the hindges are in the inside, also I like a solid steel door, not the thick hollow type, and I would bolt it down with 6" bolts in the concrete foundation of the house !!!

i worked at a gun shop for 6 years, sold loads of Brownings, they are worth the $$. never heard any complaints from customers.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

I was doing a lot of research on this a while back. To me the Fort Knox is hands down the best safe you buy (retail). With that being said, unless you have someone that knows what they are doing they aren't going to be able to get into the cheaper ones without a serious fight. So that brought my concern to fire protection and warranty. When I was doing the research the Fort Knox seemed to have the best of both of those as well. I found that they all do their fire testing differently so you can't really compare the two. I had to read between the lines to make my decision.

I did a bunch a looking and reading of both safes and was impressed with both of them, I would say you would be good with either one. Its just what you want as far as options that would be the decider between the two!

no offense but alot of guys think the hinge on the inside is a plus, but actually is better if its on the outside. think about it . . . if some idiot tryin to steal your crap works to cut off the hinges with an O/A torch or sumthing its still got a LEAST 8 7/8 inch bolts holding the door on so actually all they do is waste their time one the hinges wich means more probability of someone finding them in tha act. also the exterior hinges give the door a wider swing which makes playing "re-arrange my collection" a whole lot easier. this said most of the safes sold today have concealed hinges anyways . . . so long story short this post was POINTLESS!!!

no safe out there is better than Bear.
Any safe with an exposed dial, digital pad, etc. is trash. When the thief tryes to break in and fails, you now have to call a tech out to get in your safe and replace the dial and that will cost you as much as the safe originally cost you.
A bear safe will not present this problem at all and is firetested for a longer amount of burn time.
