The safe is also made to look nice and it sports an almost vintage look, unlike many safes that can look tacky with the décor of the room you put it in. You can also get one with a mechanical lock, to further that vintage look. Liberty Fatboy safes are a reliable trusted name in gun safes, so you know you are getting quality when you put down your money for one of their safes.

Size and where it fits: Their safe has exterior dimensions are 60.5 inches in height, 42 inches in width, and 30.5 inches in diameter. This safe is large and will hold your entire gun collection, but needs a lot of space for which to hold it. It is recommended you put this safe in the basement or somewhere out of the way, as what you keep in this safe is going to be expensive, and you don’t want it out in the open where anyone could see it and be tempted to steal your collection from inside. Keep it out of the way, in a cool, dry place to avoid damage to the guns just in case, and put it in a place where you can always get to it easily if needed. You need a lot of space due to the fact that the interior double sportsman rack rolls out, so make sure it’s not shoved in a corner where you cannot open it and pull out the rack easily. Especially keep it away from where children might have curiosity overtake them and be tempted to get into your safe.

What it’s made of: The Liberty Fatboy LF 64 64-Gun safe is made of thick 11-gage steel and a 2-piece roll form steel body, with a 1 inch composite door and a factory-installed deluxe double door panel for extra safety and theft protection, 12 all-active locking bolts, a DX-90 Monster Mech Over-Center Can to keep from damage from punching , and is 25% larger and 33% longer bolts than the last model. Also includes Anti-pry tabs, a super tight handle, and a triple hard plate.  The safe can also withstand high temperatures, up to 1200 degrees for sixty minutes, backed by an 83,000 BTU fire protection rating, guaranteed to keep your guns safe in the event of a fire or another accident. Also in the event of a fire, the door seal expands due to Palusol, which ensures the safe will withstand any fire and heat and won’t pop open or be susceptible to theft after a fire has damaged the exterior.  You can get the safe in two models—one with an electric lock and one with a mechanical one. The safe also includes a classic handle and finish to it to give it that vintage look. The exterior finish is a grey marble gloss and the hardware is made out of black chrome, and the interior is finished with a smooth velour fabric interior, giving it a nice look to it, unlike some gun safes out there that are made cheap and look cheap. This safe by no means looks cheap, and is worth every penny for it. It has a 64 gun capacity, as much space as you ever will need, with a 4-in-one flex interior and a double collector rack. The door is made as a deluxe accessory door panel with an electrical outlet that comes by kit if you wish to set up an electrical outlet inside the safe, and comes with an safety rating.
