I probably have a similar/same Winchester claims 10 guns but not 10 long guns.  6 at most and a few side arms in pouches on the door.  Change the battery once a year with Duracell and all is good.Will probably last longer but I dont want to wait and see.  I have a tag with change dates that go along with the smoke detectors at New year. Change the battery with the door open in case something happens to go wrong.

See how many will fit if you put half muzzle down with the bolts open.  I'm betting you'll more than double the capacity.

Too small, you will need a bigger one in a year or less. I have a 14 gun capacity safe and run out of out capacity long time ago and I need to upgrade to a liberty safe.

Bolt it down.  Two men could carry the safe away with all the guns in it.  At least with it bolted down they have to work for it. 

Putting it in a closet with walls on three sides will limit access to the more easily breached sides, and make it harder to pull on when they realize it's properly secured to the floor and a couple walls.

Dont use screws to hold it to the floor. Use bolts with nuts and a metal scab plate under the floor.

Good purchase, Ed.  I've had my long, noisy things locked up in a safe for the past 20+ years; glad I made the investment.

Gunsafes are metal cabinets. They are great for keeping kids hands off them while you're watching.
They are not good around battery (or electric ) grinders.
Nor do they delay heat from a fire long. Those that do insulate from heat briefly do so how? Often by having drywall insulation. Which is not the greatest thing for guns...More so,depending on the drywalls source and contents.
To debate the safe misnomer , who approves of them being called safes? The same entity that declares real safes safes by specifications? (Nope).

I bolted one down.
Two others are below decks.
I should get some hockey pucks to stand the two on.
And , should probably get another one. Maybe a bigger one at that....

Keys for me. No battery issues or malfunctions when I want to open a cabinet/"safe".( No , that's not money jingling in my pocket.)
Purty colors. Well , cept'n maybe that brown when it's on fire...

You can always do what I do with all of my weapons except for the three or four I keep in the house. I pull the bolts or firing pins and keep them in a box locked up in a separate location. All weapons are inoperative if stolen.

Layer the sheet rock outside the "safe"  frame it in for a disguise "door" then have that door also lined with sheet rock.  Perfect?  no, but better than a steel box that becomes an oven.

4 layers is decent protection for enough time for the FD to put out the average fire.  A holocaust type fire will incinerate the contents of  "real' Fire safes.  (many were found in that condition after the Oakland hills fires that took about 3K homes...  X or C rated will do more, but also costs more.

Note the difference between two  1/2" layers vs one layer;  almost 3X the time...

Some good "hardening" advice here.  But If your personal threat level (fire/break-in) is low, what you have now, with that safe, is a large improvement over what you had before. 
Want more capacity?  Trade what you have now for lever actions; you could probably put 20 in there.🙂

I’m no expert but if you do the research you’ll find there's a big difference between what’s commonly advertised as a gun safe, which is classified as a home security cabinet, and a true gun safe.  There’s a demonstration online somewhere showing two guys with levers defeating a cabinet pretty easily.  It shows that the sides are the most vulnerable point of attack. Bolting the cabinet down will slow them down but simple tools like a battery operated grinder with a cutoff wheel will get them in.  A true safe will have all sides made out of as substantial material as the front and door, and two guys aren’t going to be carrying it out of the house, at least not without a couple of dollies and ramps.

The problem with a fully protected safe is the cost and the weight.  You have to decide if you want to keep the bad guys out or just the grand children.

With 28 long guns & 10 hand guns I have a 64 gun safe. Keyed plus tumbler. Most good gun safes only hold about half of what their listed for.

If it's been done before, I can do it. Maybe not as good as some, but I can do it.

But well worth it IMHO. I bit the bullet and purchased a good one years ago. It took three grown men and a refrigerator dolly to get it up 4 steps into the house. It was supposed to go in the corner of the upstairs game room but it ended up in the corner of the downstairs living room. Wife hasn't been happy since. There was no way we could have gotten that thing up 15 more steps with a turn part way up. I like it where it is just fine. Adds some class to the room.

Good buy on the safe. One way or another its better than keeping them in the closet. I bought one that I thought would be big enough. A couple years later I bought a second one the same size. I have so much junk around mine it would take a few days for the mob to clear a path if they tried to steal them.  1C177D0C-2223-42BE-9DF1-2C5C0B8D35AE.jpeg  963073F5-2701-48CA-9881-87959A5C6A83.jpeg
