Andrew, I agree with Bobby Deweese to a point. My old boss at the Cleveland Key shop had a safe for fire protection with a sign on it "this safe is unlocked and contains no valuables." Two main areas of concern in burglary safes are secrecy and strength. If a safe is not discovered it doesn't matter what kind of safe it is. If it is then it matters greatly what kind it is, depending on who finds it. I have seen a Sentry that attacked by a ten year old grandson. He was unsuccessful. I have seen better quality (strength of construction) fire safes in businesses attacked unsuccessfully on several occasions. But the bottom line is to try to determine the worst case scenario and protect by overkill for that situation. Top notch professional safecrackers are extremely rare and aren't likely to be sneaking around most neighborhoods. A rated burglary safe hidden from view is the best of both worlds. If I found a small safe light enough to pick up I'd just take it with me. Good bye important papers.
